"Hi my name is Ditto"
Arepa with refried beans and fresh cheese (above)
Oh man, I’ve never tried an arepa before. This was good. My favourite dish out of all. So oily and crunchy.
Lamb mince empanada, mint sour cream
ALSO good. Flaky, spicy, rich. At this point I was convinced nothing could go wrong in this restaurant.
Crispy duck, scallops, chocolate mole, old bay apple
Who would’ve thought pairing duck and scallops would work?? It did. It came in three mounds (? mounds?), so our hearts broke abit when we had to split the last one.
Wagyu flank, asiago, leeks, tapenade, and sweet mustard sauce
Somewhere in there is a flank steak. The dish I was looking the most forward to. Also my least favourite dish :( I prefer my steaks simple, the cheese and mustard were overpowering, could barely taste the meat. Apparently it is reminiscent of a “cheeseburger”. It probably would taste better if it were actually made to a burger.
"Banana Split": Cream flan, banana marshmallow & custard, salted peanuts, dulce de leche ice cream
Doesn’t it look majestic? This was Ditto’s least favourite dish. Just ‘cos he’s a sweet tooth and doesn’t really like other flavours messing with the sweetness of a dessert. This dish was sweet, a bit sour (from the burnt caramel), and also salty (from the peanuts). I prefer my dishes savoury to sweet, so a sweet dish that’s actually salty is pretty good to me. Also dulce de leche. Ice cream. That is all.
TOTAL SPENDING FOR TWO PEOPLE (5 dishes) = $89.
