Lamb Rack in sweet granola bar crust, caramelised onion on top of mashed potatoes & spiced peach chutney. The meat is very tender, but they undercooked it a wee bit that we have to send the above back to the kitchen for a little more heat.

Beef tenderloin and cheek is tender and yummy as well, same as above it was tad too rare that we have to send it back to the kitchen.

Yellowtail king fish(hamachi fish)

GtowerTanzini21
I am less than impressed with the profiteroles with banana ice cream dessert as the ice cream felt icy and the choux pastry taste like it has been in the fridge together with the ice cream for too long.
