We stuck to the Christmas menu

Winter Special Menu Card
Winter Special Menu Card

Turkey roulade with baby carrot, mushrooms, brussel sprout, cranberry reduction on a bed of mashed potato and green pea mash. This dish was recommended to us by a gentleman among the restaurant team when he heard that we had come solely for the Christmas menu. This dish was however not printed on the Christmas menu card.

The roulade was lovely. Turkey meat was arranged in a round cylindrical shape and mince filled in the middle. This wAs then sliced and served. There was a lovely layer outside to keep the cylinder in place.

The meat was excellent, very highly enjoyable. Soft, somewhat juicy and very tasty. The mince was outstanding- beyond words.

Each of the veggies had the perfect crunch. Loved each one of these. Special mention to the Brussel sprouts and baby carrots.

The green mash made from peas was great.

Loved the cranberry reduction. Mashed potato was great.

Rate the dish 4.5/5

The next dish was Bacon wrapped meatloaf with red wine And port braised cabbage. The meat loaf was made from roughly minced beef. It retained the flavours and taste of meat really well. Loved the intense flavours and juiciness. Bacon wrap of course made it taste even YUMM.

This dish also had some very enjoyable veggies

Rate it 4.5/5

Xmas pudding was custard poured inside a Christmas cake, served with fig, spiced apple, candied lemon. The Christmas cake had a good amount of rum in it and hence had full bodied flavours. In fact it seemed they had poured some alcohol on top of the cake before serving… Loved the dry fruit mix in the cake and the overall cake.

Day 2

We had herb crusted baked lobster with sriracha butter , lemon mascarpone risotto. This was a very interesting dish – the risotto was insanely good and a part of its taste came from juices of the lobster. However on the process the lobster drained away and almost became ‘besides the point’. Rate the risotto 4.95/5.

The lobster was tasty but not juicy and a bit rubbery. Over cooked I Wud say. It was good. Rate the lobster 3/5

Overall rating of the dish averages out to 4/5

Roast tenderloin , fig and chili jus, lemon herb roasted potatoes was very enjoyable again. The roast tenderloin retained its meaty flavors inspite of heavy margination. The meat was in perfect texture. Loved the taste.
