I’ve walked past this multiple times as it was under construction and now I’ve finally gotten a chance to eat here. I don’t watch the show, but my friends do so they were super excited to come here. If you do want to visit, expect a long queue if you go after 6:30pm and the wait is about an hour or so.
For dinner, the only option available is a 3 course meal for $65. They have a decent selection to choose from for each course (vegetarian options available). A la carte is only available during lunch.
To start off, we chose a special limited edition item instead of picking one listed on the menu. The episode hasn’t aired yet, but we were told that it was part of one of the challenges?
Not too bad, the 100g beef patty was cooked medium-rare, it was very juicy and the texture was superb, the only downfall was the lack of flavor, luckily the beef mince was fresh and tasty without seasoning.
For our mains we ordered Fish of the day with soba. The salmon was cooked perfectly, the skin was very crispy and they managed to not overcook it. The salmon was a little bland, but it was saved by the saucy soba.
Medium rare lamb with pureed pumpkin, beetroot and broccoli.
Medium cooked lamb was very tender and overflowing with delicious juices. I found the combination of pureed pumpkin and lamb a little strange at first, but as I dug in, I really started to enjoy it.
Chai Panacotta, walnuts and chilli chocolate.
If you like Chai, this is the dessert for you! The Chai in the panacotta was extremely intense and you can smell it before you even have a taste. I don’t like chai so I wasn’t a fan of this, although I did enjoy the chilli chocolate and walnuts.
Chocolate and caramel ganache with rhubarb, almonds and pureed apricot.
Dessert is always my favorite part of the meal, the ganache was very good as it wasn’t overly sweet and was quite dense with a silky smooth texture. The pureed apricot was way too sweet for me and didn’t really go well with it. The chocolate was my favorite and I could’be eaten a whole bowl of it!
Overall, this place isn’t too bad but I wouldn’t be coming back for anything other than the chocolate dessert, although I am curious as to what their lunch menu is like. They have another 4 or so weeks before they finish so I’ll have to decide soon..
