Amazing! This is what I would summarize my very first brunch at Gordon Grill. I felt very welcome the moment I stepped in. The restaurant manager took the effort to explain the menu and offerrf recommendations. Not many restaurant managers took the effort to do so.
I had Hokkaido scallops with mushrooms, Iberico Jabugo and morel jus. The sear was good and perfectly cooked. It was transparent in the middle, giving a very good texture and maintaining the natural sweetness of the scallops. The flavourful iberico ham just works so well with the scallops. The mushroom and morel jus addrf a woody taste to the already delicious dish, what a perfect way excite your palate.
The 2nd dish was Lobster bisque scented with Napoleon brandy. The texture of the soup is very well executed in my opinion, neither too thick nor thin. The natural flavour of the lobster just makes you wanting for more and more. It comes with lobster bits to add some crunch to the smoothness of the soup.
3rd dish is Mixed grill of lamb chop, pork, jumbo quail and country bacon. Nothing phenomenal about the pork, bacon and quail. But the lamb chop is cooked perfectly to my request, medium rare. Brown on the outside, pink on the inside and well seasoned. I wish i could exchange the rest for another lamb chop.
I ended with Gordon Grill signature dessert, Sherry trifle. The taste was well balanced and texture was good with the well use of bread and nuts. There was another sweet item on the top which added some sweetness that paired well with the sherry.
The quantity was good, quality was better obviously. I am looking forward to the next visit. The beef main course looks too good to be missed. Enjoy guys.
