Senpai was back in town for another visit, and a few of us joined him for dinner tonight. I was tasked with choosing a venue that was NOT Fook Lam Moon (福臨門), and I decided to drag the gang out to North Point so we can check out Yuè (粵) in the City Garden Hotel. I had dinner here a few years ago and it piqued my interest for a return visit, and I finally decided to come back tonight.
Once again, I was disappointed by the restaurant not having some of the dishes I wanted. When it's one of the signature dishes you put on the first page of your menu, why are there so few portions of it around?!
The pan-seared garoupa fillet rests on top of 3 layers of steamed custard: the egg custard at the bottom, then a layer of vegetable custard, and finally the carrot custard on top.
This was definitely a very refined dish... with the black truffle paste adding some wonderful fragrance, and both the garoupa fillet and the custard delivered smooth textures. Yum.
