Sebastian Mix Fusion Cuisine
You've got to give credit to a chef who has a stall sign of his own namesake.
Psychedelic lines inspired by the colored parallels from paul smith,
flanked by a logo of his own caricature.
The sauce could be tweaked.
Taste of wasabi was not evident.
Perhaps wasabi powder/ paste instead of what's currently used?
And i even know what goes into the batter.
A tad salty but still a good choice while waiting for the mains to arrive. ;)
Now this, was a culinary genius in fusion cuisine.
Prawn and lala vongole.
Who needs mussels.
These clams were small yet plentiful.
A couple of prawns.
But the best was yet to be.
It was simply lipsmackingly delicious.
Thick with clam juice.
The taste of the sea never was so satisfying.
Spiced with the addition of chilli flakes,
This was a dangerous appetite opener.
Tread with caution.
It's a selfish dish.
Don't bother sharing.
Slurp it all up anyway.
Beef and mushroom stroganoff with japanese rice.
The addition of white and black roasted sesame seeds was subtle yet spoke volumes of a fusion menu.
The sauce was a good balance of savoury thickened with cream.
Additions of capsicums and mixed mushrooms
countered the heaviness of red meat with cream.
Ample strips of striploin were used for this dish.
(pun totally intended :))
And i could finish up the entire portion of rice.
Thanks or no thanks, really, to the sauce.
And just on a side note,
He had an experimental day of wagyu beef (marbling score of 4/5) with rice.
6 slabs of meat all sold out in a day.
That's an affirmative definitely to be tested on the repeat.
And I'm sure he'd oblige if you made an advanced request. :)
The steady stream of customers till closing was heartening.
And pretty impressive especially since there was a western stall just a couple of stores away.
Then again, if the food was good.
Competition is always welcome. :)
Don't mistake this for pride.
Tucked away in a coffeeshop on everton park.
Drop in on the boss.
He's quietly humble.
And loves his food.
If he says that the lala broth tastes like prawn soup, feel free to disagree.
Tell him it tastes like clam broth!
Or buy him prawn noodles.
I'm doing that next time round.
Try it for yourself.
And if I hadn't said so,
I'll definitely be back for more. :)
Coming home to this baby put a smile on my face.
I love playing with you.
but not after my bath please?
7 years old, 49 in dog years.
You're a ripe old age but still every bit of that energetic sweetheart i've grown accustomed to.
