The Starter 
This is the Starter (Appetiser) below** that is complimentary from the Chefs.
Core Ingredients - Red capers puree, Sauteed mushroom wrapped in bread crumbs, beet cubes, 



The First Course 
This is the Hokkaido Scallop Carbonara prepared by Chef Christopher Millar. 
Core Ingredients include - Hokkaido Scallop, Poached Quail egg, Parmesan Cream, garnished with Bacon Ash. 
Tasting NotesChef Christopher Millar pan-seared the Hokkaido Scallop on the outside, leaving the inside al dente. The result: the Hokkaido Scallop is fresh firm sweet juicy with a lightly smoky charred flavor on the outside. The Quail egg is poached just right with the egg yolk runny & gluey. The Parmesan cheese formed a smooth foam lending a light cheesy creamy flavor to the Scallop with the Bacon Ash giving a salty savoury taste to the sweet Scallop. A winning combination of flavors!
