Restaurant club again! This month we ended up at The Brasserie in George Town.
Since moving here more 4 years ago, we’ve noticed that the restaurants in central George Town have a bit of a tough time. Head downtown after 7pm and you’ll be hard pressed to find much action. The Brasserie, however, was heaving this Thursday night. Our table of 12 may have helped 🙂
The restaurant ‘blends a modern approach to cooking with traditional ideas and pristine ingredients harvested straight from the island’s finest artisans.’ We were pleasantly surprised by this outstanding amuse bouche: wahoo sashimi. Rachel and Clark Kent even liked it and they are most definitely not ‘raw fish’ fans.
Almost everyone at the table ordered a starter (I mean, it IS restaurant club!) Clockwise from the left: Cobb Salad with crumbled blue cheese and haas avocado, margharita style flatbread, tuna tartar with pickled diakon and island crisps and chick pea hummus. I had the tuna…melt in your mouth! Rachel was a little overwhelmed by her starter. It looked more like a personal sized pizza. Proly better for two rather than one.
Everyone was pretty impressed with their main courses as well with the exception of the two open faced kobe burger eaters. The beef was a touch overdone and that can be pretty disappointing when it comes to kobe. I had the MASSIVE 16 oz natural certified angus beef cowboy steak with crispy cassava, chimichuri and garden greens. 16 oz. Holy cow! CK had the seafood pasta and Rach had the catch of the day.
I was the only one to have dessert. For the blog of course. I was super excited to see naseberry ice cream on the menu. I was also one of the few people who liked it but then CK and I were the only ones who had had naseberry before. Its got a very distinct texture, kind of like a pear and if you’re not ready for it it might catch you off guard. I loved it though.
