A fairly large place located in a small shopping mall about a 20 minute bus ride from the old part of the city. At lunch they offer a 2 or 3 course lunch as well as a couple chef’s special a la carte options. At dinner they offer a much bigger menu. It is a stylishly modern setting with no table clothes and paper napkins and a techno type music playing softly.
The had a large table near the center of the room, maybe for large parties or to accommodate single diners, that was not occupied when we were there but otherwise most of the tables were for 2-4 diners. The wine list was small but usable. The lunch prices seemed quite reasonable but the portions were in keeping with them, so it is a good place to go if you have a heavy dinner planned, which we did. We chose the 3 course menu and there were no amuse or extra desserts offered.
We started with the beef tongue deconstructed reuben sandwich. The tongue had been “fermented” for 21 days and was served with wilted cabbage, mustard, onion, minced pickles, swiss cheese and rye crumbles. I am a lover of reuben sandwiches and this was a very fun and tasty take on one. The crumbles were not too crisp so they absorbed the dressing and the mustard seeds added a bit of spice. Very nice!
Next was the pork loin that was served with spinach and 3 gnocchi. The pork was a bit chewy but simply exploded with flavor. It was wonderful and left me wanting another plate of it.
For dessert the pineapple was in the form of ice cream with a coconut base and a little white chocolate mousse on top. It was good but the coconut seemed to be a more dominant flavor than the pineapple. The poppy seed cake came with a sesame profiterole and meringue. It was slightly tart and had a lot of seeds to deal with. It was the lesser of the two options.
