Last month my father rolled into town on business and we decided to use this as a good excuse to head out to OKitchen2 to try their latest culinary concoctions... What follows is evidence of our visit.
Bread, my delicious wheat based addiction.
The always welcome fish plate. Clockwise from top: Smoked salmon with a citrus and fennel sauce, croaker sashimi, anchovy ceviche and halibut and avocado ceviche. the halibut won hands down.
Next up, pea flan with a carrot and cardamom sauce crowned with carrot tops. I'm not a huge fan of flan, but I was impressed with the crunchy carrot tops. First time I realised they were edible... Oh, the naivety!
Beef carpaccio with assorted mushrooms and truffle oil. Heavenly raw beefiness.
Linguine with grilled saury and kennip pesto. Delicious oily mess of fish, breadcrumbs and perilla leaves.
A little palate cleanser.
Chicken roulade with salsa verde. Perfectly cooked.
One of the trio of desserts presented to us. A mere trifle...
OKitchen2... I love you...
