Finally made my way to #botanic..I normally wait till all the fuzz is gone.
First thing is the menu is tooooo small ..hardly have any options..I was looking for something incredible but was disappointed..it had like what 7 mains?..like really? And like 5 starters and dessert menu that wouldn't empress anyone.
The steak tartar was incredible..for my love of meat and it been done right..was a highlight and thought it's just gonna be better with the mains coming(greedily waiting for the main)
The beetroot didn't disappoint either..not gonna use fancy words here..just amazing starter.
Main one. The lamb shoulder cooked for 12 hours and falling off the folk kinnda good..great start, good presentation and eat till there was nothing left in the plate kinnda meal (which I did). Main two. Mahi mahi..again not the most complicated thing to make ..but gotta give it when it's done right..hats off.
Main three. The duck.
First thing with duck if someone doesn't ask it medium rare..u serve it well done. I know it's red meat but if someone don't ask for rare..make sure u ask the customer.
Presentation was horrible.
Was under cooked..(I like my duck medium to well done with crispy skin. If it was a steak I'll have it rare ..hence the tartar.) The salad just didn't match it..I felt like eating a rubber with blood poured over. We had to tell them to take it back and make it welldone..which the guys did. Thanks for that..but this was disappointing.
Loved the place and the feel.
But now since I tried 3mains only have 3 more to try..but would I?
Hopefully they will include more choices..coz unless it's Hungry Jack's (Burger King) I'm not gonna go for the same meal again at this price.
Value for money :7/10
@bot@nikbistrobar hope you can include more choices to ur menu.
