Ember Part VI

It was a pretty last minute decision to have lunch at Ember and that explained the less than ideal seats (and photographs) we got. But nonetheless, lunch at Ember is always a happy time as the restaurant has never failed me in terms of consistency and service.


Complimentary Bread

What can I say? Excellent as usual. But as I was nursing a sore throat, I limited myself to seconds.


Pan Roasted Scallop with Parma Ham, Citrus and Tarragon Vinaigrette

Good, but still a little soft in my humble opinion. Would have ordered my usual foie gras but wasn't in the mood for any liver.


Pan Seared Chilean Seabass with Mushroom & Smoked Bacon Ragout, Truffle Yuzu Butter Sauce

Although the Marinated Cod with Black Miso, Sweet Peas and Herbed Potatoes is the one that usually runs out, I personally prefer the Chilean Seabass for its technique and outstanding flavours. Never fails to put brighten up my day although I'm not much of a fish lover.


Crispy Caramelized Pear Tart with Homemade Baileys Ice Cream

It was a toss up between the apple tart and the pear tart for desserts but we ordered the latter as we preferred a flaky, buttery ending to our meal as opposed to a flaky, caramelized one. I just wish they made this available in ala carte for lunch. 


Bill

$93 for a great meal for 2. Worth every cent. I'll definitely remember to make my reservations early.
