I’ve had a cold for 2 weeks now.. even after trying every over-the-counter medicine under the sun. Surprisingly the only times when I felt better were when I saw my Oestopath and my Naturopath for my remedial massage. My remedial massage was just last Friday… and after that she gave me a remedy that required me to take the evil tasting liquid 3 times a day until I got better. I saw that she put elderflower liquid into it.. but where is it?? Where is the elderflower aroma or taste???
On the gastronomical front. We haven’t been to any new place.. just our regular haunts like Kenzan and Murasaki. We went to Rockpool again for Michael’s birthday. We didn’t have the wagyu this time and was seated inside next to the open kitchen, which was very entertaining. They cook the steaks very simply by covering it with olive oil and sea salts then straight onto the open wood fire. We had the wagyu leg steak and 33 days aged 200g sirloin. Our entrees were fantastic. I had the Spicy Seafood and Saffron Soup with Aioli, while Michael had the Lobster, Avocado and Zucchini Salad with Hazelnut and Lime Foam. There are still so many dishes we want to try there. It is quickly becoming one of our favourite restaurants.
We also went to Red Emperor for my father-in-law’s birthday on Sunday. Their food and service is always impressive. Just bring a jacket as the air-con can be vicious.
Yumcha on Sunday morning at Tai Pan with Wil and family. H is such a cute baby.My cousin is on tour in Japan…. Lucky lucky girl…. I’m sure my travel advice emails to her have a hint of envy in them…. I miss the food in Japan!!!
Despite reviews from friends, I’ve decided to grab a booking at Vue De Monde in July. We will see how that goes…
