Dinner at Iggy’s

Finally we got round to eating at Iggy’s, a 8-course degustation dinner. Pictures were taken with Karen’s brand new N73, which has an incredible 3.2 megapixel camera.

Starter: Slow cooked egg yolk with Western Australian winter black truffle, tartare of Momotaro and tomato foam, fish mousse with Avruga

Ceviche of hamachi with frisee, dill and yuzu lime

Truffle risotto with foie gras

Steamed prawn mousse with shiso consomme

Sakura ebi capellini with homemade scampi oil and konbu
(picture to come. This was the highlight of the dinner. Perfectly done.)

Hot Momotaro tomato consomme with basil seeds (didnt get a good shot of this)

Palate cleanser: Basil ice cream with vanilla panna cotta and candied tomatoes

The “main”: Crepinette of quail with pickled plum and Japanese herbs, tarragon gnocchi

Dessert: Champagne jelly and sorbet with fresh white peach, elderflower foam (we forgot to shoot this until halfway through!)

Overall, very enjoyable and creative dinner, although Karen thought there was too much truffle. We’ll probably go back and try the lunch menu.

The dinner’s about 180 per person if i’m not wrong. we didnt drink much, just a couple of glasses of wine each, so everything came in under 500 for 2 people.

If you’re looking to spend too much, i hear the set lunch is pretty awesome as well at about 50 per person.

iggys is at regent hotel. U definitely need reservations.
