wild mushrooms, leek, baby sweetcorn.
Brought free alcoholic drink. Something they’re trying out. My response: “DO NOT WANT. Thank you.” Apparently I look like the guy who likes to taste beers.
The chicken is sous vide, and very soft. However, it’s in big chunks, and needs a strong sauce to go with it. Puréed leek is absolutely not a strong sauce. In fact, it’s so mild I just eat most of it by itself, or with the mushrooms.
with blood orange sorbet & basil syrup.
I was very hesitant to pour green liquid into my creme brûlée, so I just started off very slowly. I soon deduced that the green stuff was not some refinement of basil, but a tasteless syrup with a green tinge. I was drinking it straight from its beaker, trying to detect a flavour. The crime brûlée itself was fairly weak. The crispy top was uneven, and it didn’t have any strong texture or flavour, including the purported orange flavour. The side scoop of sorbet had a generic tropical flavour.
