The combination of fruitiness from pear sorbet and strawberry chilled soup, richness of buffalo mozzarella and the umami of raw tuna makes for a delightful appetizer to start off the meal

Vizcaina Baccala with crunchy seaweed rock and tripe

Cod fish from Northern Spain is marinated with salt and slow cooked to bring a savoury flavor like Bacalhau yet with a creamy texture; while the delicate fish tripe, crispy seaweed rock and the sweet tomato and capsicum sauce underneath bring a contrasting flavor and texture to the cod

Raw fennel on a creamy,with spicy touches of celery and green apple

Red prawn is slow-cooked to retain its tender texture while its umami is amplified by the tomato-based seafood cream, and the extra spiciness from the green apple and celery foam

Farmhouse egg with toasted butter foam, duck consommé infused with citronelle

Savor the clear duck stock infused with citronella that intertwines with a burst of flavor and cured Iberico pork loin from the warm runny yolk and cured Iberico pork loin

Accompanied with calamari and ark shell, the grilled wild turbot with a crisp golden crust and delicate flesh are spiced up by the addition of squid ink and pungent green curry sauce on the side

Wagyu bavette with ceps cream, smoked cheese bon bon and extract of rocket

The uniquely juicy Australian wagyu bavette with rich meaty flavor is served with smoked cheese bonbon and potato-cheese roll, while refreshing elements from the ceps and rocket puree help balance out the strong flavors

Basil cremoso with passion fruit, frozen mandarin and green tea

Mandarin and passionfruit sorbet is served with a light, creamy basil mousse, lime jelly, and the green tea and pistachio sponge cake which contributed a refreshing note and diverse texture
