Out first tapas dish was the Octopus Krasato ($18).
These were the softest succulent octopus I've ever tasted. I never have had a positive experience with octopus until now. All the previous octopus dish I've tasted were chewy, rubbery and hard to eat. Probably that was why I always avoided ordering octopus.
This octopus tapas was so-well cooked that I have converted.
Crispy Tempura Baby Zucchini Flowers $18.00
(Stuffed w Ricotta, Mint, mild chilly served with lemon aioli)
For some reason, I always thought of zucchini flowers as an ingredient to be treated with much respect and used only parsimoniously. Almost as if they cost a fortune or something.
So whenever, I see zucchini flowers on the menu, I couldn't resist but to order it.
These zucchini flowers were delicious; they were well-seasoned with a thin crispy batter exterior that retained the freshness and juiciness of this delicate vegetable. Dip them in the home-made aioli and drizzle some lemon juice on top to take the flavour to the next level.
There were some negative reviews about the services here, but the service we received today was one of the friendliest in Sydney.
We were not treated like a customer, we were treated like part of the family. She did not just merely take orders and deliver food to the table, she genuinely cared and was beaming with pride when we told her that we loved the dish.
It was the waitstaff's stunning service that made this a great dining experience.
