Kingfish, basil, almonds, zucchini - very clean and light with some great toasty brioche type croutons. The almonds were a bit unusual, kind of watery like a grape almost.
Beef tartare with pickled mushrooms and truffle cream - very different to the kingfish tartare in that it's much more indulgent, headier, richer and the pickled mushrooms just add enough of a tang to cut through all that decadence.
We were divided on the triple cooked potatoes with pecorino and a truffle mayo.
Steve liked them and the crunch. I found them too greasy and that the crunch was crumbly and too much like fatty batter.
12 hour pot roasted lamb shoulder, grain salad, smoked leek, watercress foam
Duck breast, braised leg, kumquat, Spring vegetables
Again a little bit of a mixed response. I liked the grains on the lamb and the meat was tender and tasty. I found the kumquat overpowering on the duck, the broth that was poured on it was bland and unnecessary.
Steve thought the grains were meh but enjoyed the intense duck and didn't take offence like I did at the duck broth!
We both agreed the duck breast was phenomenal though and couldn't get enough.
We missed out on dessert though and decided to call it a night. It's not a place we're desperate to rush back to but happy to return if other people suggest it or if we're watching a show. Out of the two Hamer Hall restaurants, Sake has my vote more.
