The highlights on the chef’s menu include the scallops with Vietnamese dressing, buried under refreshing coriander granita and theatrically served on a half-shell. There is also the tender, luscious squid noodle dish served in a piping-hot mushroom dashi soup stock with a raw egg yolk, a dollop of cream and chicken wing—the essence of delicious comfort cuisine. The foie gras brûlée is also outstanding; the rich liver pairs very well with the sweet and fruity bits of lychee, ginger and crunchy gingerbread crumble. Another bold, hearty and playful main is the attractively plated Silver Hill Farm duck, served with a parfait, toast and cabbage.
