Set dinner (RMB580) at Sir Elly's again. Our amuse bouche with chestnut mousse, if I remember correctly.
Jasmine soup/foam. I am not big with foam but I did like the faint but interesting jasmine flavour in the soup.
Scallops with endives. I actually like the slight bitterness of endives and the tangy sauce went really well with it. Scallops were cooked to perfection.
My smoked lobster and gnocchi came in a smoke-filled glass container before it got tipped out on my plate. You could definitely taste the smoke, which added another interesting element to the already interesting texture of the lobster. I wonder if it was cooked sous-vide then smoked? The texture felt super tender and soft, it was like nothing I had tasted before. I loved the truffle-infused gnocchi as well.
Pork fillet cooked in 3 ways - barbecued, braised and grilled. The BBQ version reminded us of Cantonese BBQ pork a lot. All in all all were tender and nicely executed.
A refreshing watermelon and grapefruit sorbet to clean the palate.
Chocolate souffle. I could eat a light and fluffy souffle any day.
Our very pretty petite four. A very satisfying meal indeed.
