azie - DAT brief report

I was glad I went but probably wouldn't go back at the regular prices.

Appetizers were pork ribs and persimmon salad. The ribs were very tender and coated with a sweet/salty sauce. On the side was a spicy-mint-watermelon salad. Very unusual and I loved it. Persimmon salad looked like the average mixed salad with shredded carrot. There was no carrot, but persimmon instead. Couldn't taste the persimmon.

Entrees were tandoori steak with naan bread, peanut and cilantro chutney and skate wing. It was the first time I tried skate wing and I found it similar to monkfish, but even stringier. It was pretty good. The steak was also pretty good - perfectly medium-rare with a light tandoori sauce. The naan was just okay - more bread-like than the places in the tandoorloin.

Dessert was hazelnut financier (aka muffin) with poached pear and chocolate cake with coffee ice cream. Chocolate cake was very good, but I had something similar at another restaurant last year, so I wasn't blown away. Hazelnut muffin was just okay - it was a tad dry and the poached pear didn't pair that well with it. There was a great sauce on the plate though - similar to sabayon.
