Georges Bank seared scallops, duck green curry, coconut rice and peanut crumbs. The scallops were fresh and bouncy lumps of happiness whilst the duck was chewy, just a tad tough and rather salty. You probably never tasted coconut rice quite like this – it was not merely fragrant like Nasi Lemak rice is, but was literally soaked in coconut milk for unadulterated coconut goodness. However, all these elements and their respective texture and taste seemed like different canvases and showcases for the true star that is the dramatically coloured, spicy and amazing dark green curry paste to shine, as the paste tasted ever so slightly different with each pairing. Quite marvellous and one of my most memorable and startlingly good mains ever. 4.6/5
