Blogging about Ms G's today, and the chef of the restaurant just happens to be Dan Hong...again! It feels like I'm doing a Dan Hong special lately because the last 3 posts out of 4 was about his restaurant.
I had a choice of blogging about La Renaissance Patisserie or Ms G's but making 3 posts in a row about nothing but sugar will make my readers think I'm some crazy b!tch, so Ms G's it is.
Still recovering my crazy sugar overdose at the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Lunch on Saturday, we went to Potts Point the next day for Ms G's. Yeah, we're insane.
We waited outside the restaurant from 12:30 till 1 when it opened and the place was filled shortly, talk about popular!
I was super excited about their alcoholic bubble tea because I just happen to love bubble tea and an alcoholic...so I have to try it out!
Pina 'Pearls' Colada $14
Appleton VX and Havana Club Blanco rum, pineapple, coconut, yogurt sorbet with little green pearls.
There is a Ms G doll 'cup sealing thingy' with a red dot as a mouth, indicating where you should pierce your fat straw through, but it gave me dirty thoughts...*cough*
Green Iced Tea $13
Zubrowka vodka, Cloud and Mist tea, grapefruit bitters, green apple and soda.
Choya Cobbler $12
Choya plum wine, Ramos port, strawberries, oranges, limes and lemons.
Mini bánh mì- crisp pork belly $6 each
Oh boy, look at that fat chunk of pork belly. It had a crunchy layer of crackling with tender meat. I was so sad when I finished it :( Wish I had more.
Buddha’s Delight - A Textural Vegetarian Salad $14
My favourite dish of the day! It consists of (but not limited to) shredded carrots, coriander, mushrooms, julienned seaweed, pressed tofu, cucumber, bean sprouts, cashews and dressed with vinegar jelly. It's a very refreshing dish with a hint of sourness to really entice your appetite.
Prawn Toast, Yuzu Aioli and Herbs $14
Super duper crunchy sourdough stuffed with prawn mince and topped with yuzu aioli, mint and coriander.
Vietnamese Steak Tartare with Prawn Crackers $18
Steak tartare, Vietnamese style. A sprinkle of dried shrimp on top, mixing in some coriander and replacing the usual croutons with prawn crackers brings an interesting twist to this dish.
Fried Baby Chicken with Kimchi Mayonnaise $25 (whole)
Succulent chicken with a crispy, crunchy skin already sounds drool worthy but wait, dip these babies in the kimchi mayonnaise and it's delicious on another level. As much as we liked the dish, it was just too much for 3 people and it was kinda torturous to finish everything off towards the end. Should've just got half of the chicken instead of the whole thing.
It was a pretty enjoyable meal throughout until we asked for the bill. Our bill came to $130 with a $55 discount? Confused, but no one is going to reject a discount right? We hailed the waitress to come and collect our payment but she didn't even look at us and said "wrong bill" then walked away. Our little hearts was crushed and felt like a slap on the face. It wasn't the greatest feeling :/
She came back with the bill with no discount. We didn't mind paying the full amount, but it would've been nice if she was apologetic to the fact she presented us with the wrong bill or explained the situation to us.
