Bibitus @ Changkat

Click here & here for earlier entries on Bibitus (January 14 & April 21).

Potato blinis with sour cream, moluga caviar, lemon & cauliflower black truffle foam. Creamy comfort food, easily gulped down in less than one mouthful.

Squid ink rice with prawn, baby squid & oyster. A bit bland at first bite, but the seafood was fresh and springy enough to make this worth recommending.

Crab sandwich reinvented _ grilled foccaccia with salted egg white mayonnaise, crab meat, polenta, espelette pepper-dusted soft-shell crab, dried tomatoes & rocket leaves. A masterful combo of delicious flavours and diverse textures.

Pan-seared Japanese mulloway with saffron risotto & romesco thickened bouillabaisse sauce. The spectacularly creamy rice was bursting with the flavour of saffron, even stealing the spotlight from the succulent fish.

Balsamic marinated strawberry sorbet. Not bad, but we're not major fans of sorbet, since we prefer the lusciousness of ice cream.

Yellow watermelon sorbet. Sounded fascinating, but tasted forgettable.

VDP Gros Manseng-Sauvignon, Brumont, 2008. Thus endeth the Bibitus trilogy!
