Summer Menu Tasting at Bacchus Restaurant

Chef Montgomery Lau had recently launched his Summer menu, Lawrence and I had the pleasure to try several of these summer inspired dishes.

1st dish:

Heirloom Tomato & Watermelon Salad

Heirloom Tomato & Watermelon Salad

With chèvre, white pepper, basil, celery hearts, strawberry vinaigrette, outstanding presentation and a refreshing take on a salad.

 

2nd dish:

Butter Lettuce & buttermilk dressing

Butter Lettuce & buttermilk dressing

With avocado, charredCorn, flax seed crisp, Smits & co aged Gouda, delicious and light.

3rd dish:

Charred Smoked Scallops

Charred Smoked Scallops with watercress, baby beets, rye crisp, salmon caviar, perfectly cooked scallops.

4th dish:

Brioche Crusted Halibut

Brioche Crusted Halibut (BLT) with roasted fingerling potatoes, charred gem lettuce, confit Campari tomato, bacon emulsion; my favourite dish of the night, halibut melted in my mouth, tender fish and flavourful with the emulsion and other components.

5th dish:

Olive oil poached Nova Scotia lobster

Olive oil poached Nova Scotia lobster with linguini, zucchini ribbons, garlic, chills, tomato broth, a great marriage of flavours.
