We found some interesting food in the menu and time to let the food do the talking.
Salad – Fine Dining Menu
Smoked Duck with Quail Egg. This is salad mix with smoked duck, quail egg and ebiko with beetroot dressing.
Well, this is very visually impactful as you can spot the red juices. Those are from beetroot. Beetroot is a very common ingredient in Australia. You can find beetroot in many food including fast food burgers and since Chef Howard studied in Australia, he brings some Aussie influence food to the menu.
This is a unique salad with smoked duck and quail eggs with hints of ebiko. The ebiko brings hints of texture and salty after taste while the smoked duck adds more texture to the salad. Whether you like beetroot or not, you will love this salad.
Salmon – Fine Dining Menu
Grilled salmon served with cauliflower puree, salsa, cucumber and cilantro oil. This is salmon grilled to perfection with the right texture. The portion is generous and the taste with the salsa offers a refreshing taste to the salmon.
Bread and Artisan Flavoured Butter – Degustation Menu
The bread is source from partner bakery and the taste and texture is really out of the whole. Complement with the truffle flavoured butter, you will love this and ask for more!
1st Course – Degustation Menu
Seared Tuna Dashi Jelly, Seared Scallop with Ikura and Tiger Prawn Cocktail
This trio is a very interesting entrée. The seared tuna dashi jelly offers soft texture but hints of spicy after taste.
The tiger prawn cocktail comes with creamy avocado and crunchy texture of sago cracker.
The scallop comes in generous size, perfect texture with hints of saltiness from the ikura (fish roe) and hints of the mustard flavour.
2nd Course – Degustation Menu
Cod Fish with Roasted Butter Potato. We love cod fish as it offers sweet and juiciness taste and this comes with hints of saltiness after taste. The potato is soft in texture and this is really tasty.
3rd Course – Degustation Menu
Angus Beef Tenderloin, Creamy Mash with Red Wine Jus Reduction. The Angus Beef Tenderloin comes in medium rare with pink colour meat.
You can taste the natural taste of the beef as the red wine jus reduction enhances the flavour of the beef. If you are a beef lover, this will not disappoint you.
Squid Ink Seafood Risotto with edible flowers. The creamy risotto offers hints of saltiness with the generous amount of sliced squid with amazing texture. You get a bit of the taste of the squid ink as the taste did not overwhelmed the taste of the risotto.
Dessert – Degustation Menu
Yuzu Tart and Midnight Sin
Please take note that the Degustation Menu is priced at RM 200 per person not inclusive of service charge and wine.
In conclusion, Chef Howard impressed us with his stunning food presentation, technique and skills and overall the food is good at District 13 by 缔 Aman Suria. We love how he infused beetroot into the salad, the Degustation Menu as well as their coffee.
