I read on FB that this place had a soft opening today. Having had my fill of Sunday Roasts, my friend and I thought it would be worth a look and a taste of some of the daring items on today's menu.
I had the bruschetta on house made focaccia bread. Lots of bits of good things on it around it, including some very nice tomatoes.
I decided to try the seared tuna as a starter, and the owner Ewan wisely suggested I eat that and then decide if I wanted a main course. He was right..remember, this was my breakfast (as in "break fast') for the day, and so I wasn't ravenously hungry. The tuna came, and as you can see from the picture, it was a BIG starter. When I had finished, I was full (except for enough room for dessert, which I put in a special stomach I keep available for that).
My friend had the garlic and rosemary chicken. He said it was very good, and from what I could see, it did look good.
I had the shortbread millefeuille dessert. My only issue is that the shortbread was too hard to break with a spoon, and I had to crush my dessert when I tried to break it into bite size pieces. I ended up just eating it like a hamburger, from the outside in.
After the meal, the chef offered us a free drink...as advertised on the opening day post he made. I opted for a cognac. My bill was 510 baht.
I look forward to trying some main menu items, and from speaking to the chef, he will be varying the menu regularly, so if you see something you like, you'd better get over there and eat it!
Quality ingredients, quality preparation with superior presentation, a convivial chef, a very sexy waitress (likely the missus ) and a good location on 3rd road. I expect this place to be a success! Let's make it true, folks!
