A Treat at Ubiquitous

My 2nd visit to Ubiquitous Chip. The 1st being my birthday. I was here today with KrS & Yg under their lunch invitation. This would be their 7th time at the chip having been gastronomically impressed by the food on many previous occasions.

They have chosen this place for lunch so that we could all try their 40th anniversary lunch menu.

We started off with a basil velouté with a red chilli dressing. Courtesy of the chefs. I found the taste pretty good. very basilly is probably the freshest way to describe it. It was meant to be a cold soup which if you think about it actually ties in with the sunny weather.

Next up Smoked makeral with potato salad and tomato oil dressing. Slightly less cold than the veloute. The fish was as expected very fishy just as I would expect a makeral to be. Seems to pair really well with the potato salad. My taste buds haven't gotten used to eating smoked fish other than salmon.

The names of the dishes are very fancy. This one if i recall correctly is the pan fried scallops na Garvellach. We were all amazed by the taste of the scallop. We all felt it tasted like an Otak but made with scallop. The coral sauce was an absolutely delight but I just don't know what went into it.

The mains was a pan fried guinea fowl breast with roasted squash, beetroot puree, prune and armagnac chutney. Damm Good man. Chicken was moist and skin was ultra crispy. The sauces arent normally ones that would entice me but they did do the trick to spice up the chicken taste.

Dessert was a belgian chocolate cushion with peppermint mousse and milk sorbet.
First time having milk sorbet. Yummy

The 40th annivasary menu was meant to last a year but it seems to have been taken down now. Anyhow, I am sure you will be able to find something worthwhile from the ala carte menu.

Thanks Krs and Yg !!!
