Orik Posted April 24, 2004 Share Posted April 24, 2004 The least well executed meal there so far, further supporting evidence to that the kitchen works better when WD is away. Go on Sundays. Started with Manila clams, sake noodles, kimchee paper - an excellent dish, with the sake flavor working very successfully with the clams. A relatively large bit of candied citrus peel was uncalled for. Corned duck, rye crisp, etc. - nice as always Rabbit sausage - had this dish about 5 times by now. Today it was drowned in salt. Surely the restaurant must have known, so I can't see why they chose to serve it. Venison tartare - perhaps to match the rabbit, sprinkled with too generous amounts of salt, which I didn't like with the sweet pear flavors. Edamame ice cream, maybe because of the salt, seemed sweeter than usual. (these two were comped, but it took a good 15 minutes for the bus boy and utterly incompetent waiter to figure it out) Duck breast and lamb loin were their usual selves, as was the roasted banana, curry, chocolate ice cream dessert. The restaurant should know that if you made your way through a bottle of mineral water, you'd like another one (or to be asked), not glasses of tap water. A sort of ok bottle of valpolicella, I forget which one. 3 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
