Yes, yes, I know… I rave about La Mouette like all the time. But for bloody good reason!
Their ever changing 6 course tasting menus rock my world and I find myself going back and back again because of the associated FOMO (which is intense, I guarantee you).
Their current menu which is still available until 6 June, I have to say, is one of my favourites to date. It starts off with their heavenly Truffle and cheese croquettes (served with roasted garlic aoli), moves on to a delicious butternut coconut soup with a piece of vegetable dim sum, and then you have some great choices for courses 3 & 4:
- Pan fried line fish with cauliflower velouté, grapes, ricotta gnocchi & mushrooms
Herb crusted sweet potato with sweet potato puree, pickled pear & truffle dressing.
- Springbok medallion with caramelized onion, chestnuts, parsnip puree & red wine caviar.
Mushroom ravioli with a smoked onion puree, croutons, pickled mushrooms & sage brown butter.
Things then start tipping towards the sweeter side with course 5 – which is fontina on toast with pickled apple, butternut & whole grain mustard. And then it’s all wrapped up with the grand finale of dark chocolate tart with honey comb, vanilla cream & candid hazelnuts. #sohungynow
