Mitzo special barbecued pork. The skin of this amazing piggylicious delight must have been separated at birth from crème brûlée. I doodled a diagram in my notes whilst eating this – it was a circle labelled “middle” within a box with area outside the circle shaded and labelled “melts in mouth fats”.
Thousand layer radish puff, bread-coated shrimp and foie gras and crispy glutinous pumpkin in custard. The radish puff evoked the same feels as a flaky Teochew yam mooncake albeit a tad more savoury, the shrimp and foie gras item had a plump, supple prawn core and the same thick skin as those sesame balls you get at dim sum stalls, whilst elsewhere the glutinous pumpkin was like a sun-worshipping mochi.
Oven-baked Chilean sea bass with lemongrass, chilli and spices. The fish was happily moist with a nice chew to it, possessing traces of a slight sambal-esque spice which quickly vanishes from the scene after initial bites.
