Mezzanine Set - MuseoCustomised mezzanine set at Museo ($44), consisting of any four of the eight mezzanines available. It was quite an interesting experience having share-sized portions of zi char-style fare in a classy, laid-back and cosy setting. Hits and misses, but maybe I didn’t order the best mezzanines? 4/5 (aggregate score)

Photo 12-4-15 6 38 41 pmPicasso’s Blues – deep fried prawns flavoured with lavender. Crusty and chewy, with a sweet salted egg yolk-esque coating. Enjoyable while in the moment, but immediately forgotten once you’re done with it, like a libertine’s perfunctory fling at a sleazy lasub bar.

Photo 12-4-15 6 39 30 pmThree Musicians – soft shell chilli crab served with sweet and savoury tomato-chilli sauce. Ideal for those who hate all the deshelling drama that comes with crabs, or those who think mainstream chilli crab sauce is too wussy and plays too much with Dora the Explorer plushes. The thick sauce here is surprisingly spicy despite the strong tomato element.

Photo 12-4-15 6 41 14 pmThe Great Wave – tuna tataki. Four slices of tuna tataki sit in a cold, peppery bush in an orderly manner not unlike primary school seating at assembly, while a lump of cold crab meat sits awkwardly at the apex, unsure of its role in all this.

Photo 12-4-15 6 40 20 pmThe Kiss – barbequed squid with chilli and peppers. My favourite from the four, this crunchy squid is the most zi char-esque, with a most enjoyable gooey and peppery gravy. They need to start serving rice with this.
