An appetiser of grilled tiger prawns presented elegantly layered one by one, shortly gone, one by one. Tamarind glaze, honey and Asian spices, sweet flavours with a kind inkling of chilli. Brunch is served – king crab benedict delicately poached egg, on top of a fresh, yet bouncy English breakfast muffin.
Carefully picked crabmeat, feathered in-between the muffin and the egg. Finishing with the creamiest of hollandaise sauces – an exquisite meal. The touch of crabmeat gives the benedict an extra pop of richness – perfect for brunch.
