We began the dinner with a luxurious starter Foie Gras Mousse topped with Avruga Caviar and drops of Smoked Olive Oil. Fluffy in texture, the foie gras mousse was a mix with mashed potato. Chef uses liquid nitrogen as part of the cooking process to give it a nice foamy result.

Double thumbs up for the soup that served next, a classic French dish that chef added in a little bit of local influences. Rich in flavor, the Seafood Bouillabaisse was cooked with freshwater crayfish as main ingredient along with the mussel and seabass. Coconut cream was than added to give it a smoother creamy texture and also a small amount of lemongrass for the depth of taste, not too overpowering, just nice to potray chef’s own version of bouillabaisse with Asian twist.
Next to whet our appetites was the Dover Sole dish that air flown from Europe. The flesh was firm in texture, and since the fish was originally bit blank in taste, chef own mixed of Mustard Sabayon sauce gave the overall flavor of this dish. Simple at its best, the fried thin sliced of Plantain (Pisang Tanduk) that served along contrasted the whole texture with its crispiness.

Truly demonstrated culinary art at its finest, our Australian Lamb Loin was prepared in Sous-vide, a cooking method that sealed the food in an vacuumed plastic bag before cooked it in a water bath for more than 24 hours at around 50 celcius. Marinated with only simple seasoning like salt, pepper, and olive oil, the meat get to still retained its tenderness for my ultimate eating pleasure. Satisfying.
The eye-catching plating came with roasted cherry tomatoes, russet potatoes and beetroot on the side, gave both the flavor and texture a nicely contrast.
Our dessert came with a kick! Chef first mixed chili flakes inside the cream to let it well-soaked its spiciness before filtered it out to make this Chocolate Chilli Chiboust. Have it together with the crunchy crumble base gave a nice contrast to its satinly smooth texture. I love the artistic plating as well with editable flowers, it was a perfect ending for Grill 582’s MIGF 2013 festival menu.
