We took Baby J to Scaramouche Restaurant a few weeks ago and we soon realized that he has an expensive taste! ^^ Previously, whenever we take Baby J out for dinner (even at Terra Restaurant), he was never a big fan of "western" food, he usually would take in a lot of bread and only take a few bites of the mains (usually some form of pasta). However, at Scaramouche, he enjoyed everything from the appetizer to the dessert. Just his portion of the meal was around $40+ and he is only 21 month ... haha ... but we are very happy that he enjoyed the meal as that meant we were also able to enjoy ours.
I will not go into details on how great a restaurant Scaramouche is because there are already many great reviews about it online. As a result, here are the photos of the food.
Foie Gras Terrine elderflower jelly/quick pickled cherries/cherry wine reduction toasted hazelnut brioche.
Dungeness Crab Ravioli scallions/sweet peppers/haricot vert/chives/shellfish nage. Baby J also liked this a lot too to the point that he was upset when he dropped a quarter of the ravioli to the ground while transporting it to his mouth with his spoon. I liked my pasta appetizer a lot as well and more than K's appetizer. It was refreshing and just the right amount to not spoil the main of the meal.
Braised beef short ribs and seared sea scallops. The scallops were one of the tastiest I have had and made me wondered which type of scallops they were and how they were marinated and cooked.
Lamb roasted rack/grilled leg/caponata/goat cheese whipped potatoes salsa verde/cherry tomatoes/pine nuts/lamb jus. I liked my main better though. ^^
their signature coconut cream pie. We shared the dessert as we were full and have to be quick since Baby J was already tired after 2 hours of patiently waiting for his dishes and eating his meal. Looking at the picture again now ... I wish I can have another piece now. ^^
A quick summary of our experience, yep, we will definitely return again
because everything was excellent and Baby J loved it.
