Hot Cakes with ricotta, blueberries, pure mapple and double seeds @ Aud 18 is one of their signature. It is a huge portion and inside the hotcakes they stuff it with blueberries for flavours. Every bite is punch with flavours.

This is one of our favourite. Their Takaki Ocean Trout with a raw kale, and pickled vegetable salad, seaweed, nut & poached egg @ Aud 20. Fish is cook to perfection where outer layer is slightly cook and in the middle you can see the freshness and orangy cut of it. Balance of the taste is amazing where you can taste the freshness of fish, little hint of sour taste from pickled vegetable and slight munch crunch from seaweed.
