Another meal from ages ago… with ggy and ant. Just because they had a nice prix fixe menu for SRW.
My starter was a grilled vegetable roll with habanero tamago – I actually liked it better than the rest of the seafood options. The vegetables were wonderfully charred and the spicy tamago was a nice surprise.
Another favourite – Ahi tartare deviled eggs with bacon and truffle oil. An interesting twist on deviled eggs! Although I’m not sure bacon and ahi tartare goes together. AND truffle oil. Too many conflicting flavors, so we ended up mostly tasting the bacon. But I love deviled eggs so I loved this.
All in all this place was pretty good as far as dining in Bellevue goes, but kind of pricey (if the SRW menu is not available). Their dishes are pretty inventive but I feel a little too complicated, in that they don’t let the natural flavours and freshness of their produce shine through. The tables here (at least the one we were brought to) was also too large, so we could barely hear each other the din of the restaurant and spent most of the time shouting or straining our ears. I understand a lot of people appreciate large tables but I felt like a hobbit or something eating here.
