With my birthday coming up, it made me reminisce about how spoilt I was last year when I was taken to Tetsuya’s. We had to book 5 months in advance and even with just the two of us we could only get a lunch reservation. It was 10 courses for $210 when we went in May last year.
I won’t describe what I thought of every dish, just know that all the flavours were fresh, the different components gave each dish a variety of textures and it was an amazing experience!
Bread roll with truffle butter
Chilled cucumber soup with sheep yoghurt ice cream
Drinks excluded~ Berry mocktail
Optional extra~ Pacific oysters with rice vinegar and ginger - I have to give these a shout out- best oysters I have EVER eaten!!
Sashimi of yellow fin tuna and showgirl and garlic chips
Marinated NZ scampi with curs and junsai
Signature dish~ Confit petuna ocean trout with konbu
Celery and apple Steamed mulloway with blackbean and bacon
Braised ox tail with sea cucumber and lotus root
Pancetta wrapped breast of quail with germinated seeds and onion essence
De-boned rack of lamb with egg plant and white miso
Musk melon sorbet with sauternes jelly and tart tatin
Genoa figs with leatherwood honey and fig lead ice cream
Chocolate fondant with hazelnut and praline
Chocolate pave with cream cheese ice cream and cinnamon twigs
At the end of the meal they give you a printed menu with the date and they wrote ‘Happy Birthday!’ on the inside cover for me. Too bad I didn’t know they were giving a menu as I was madly tapping away on my phone taking notes every time we got a new dish.
