Reviews of good food at Cheek by Jowl

Far from your typical Sunday Brunch, today's pop-up at One Michelin Starred "Cheek By Jowl" was a celebration of the humble hopper, a staple of Sri Lankan cuisine.
Made fresh on the spot with the team from "Lankan Filling Station" in Sydney, both the egg and plain hoppers tasted so good mixed and matched with the impressive spread of Gentle Fish Curry, Red Prawn Curry and a Black Pork one, a mild dhal and three kinds of sambols of varying levels of spiciness.
We were also served a refreshing Gotu Kula salad and my personal favourite - the pickled jackfruit.
However, even before these arrived, things got rolling with a plate of freshly-fried crab cutlets. I really enjoyed how they were crisped on the outside and generous with the moist crab meat within.
Our sweet ending was spiced jaggery (it's a type of sugar) ice-cream accessorised with crunchy cashews and black sesame.

This review by David Papkin is Cheek by Jowl restaurant. Tasty food and great service. Had the 5 course chef choice. #davidpapkin http://travellingman.net/

Not going into specifics cause their menu changes but the food here is fresh, sumptuous, and extremely worth it. Definitely deserving of their Michelin star. A must try on your foodie list! Will be back for more. ⠀

If there is 1 Starter you must try at #cheekbyjowl, this is it. Each bite of this takes you to another world. The quail melts away in your mouth, comes together nicely with the pickled mushrooms, chestnut foam. Best eaten with your eyes closed - trust me. Thanks to chef Rishi for the double portion! #burpple

Yes, we definitely will come back next time. It's so scrumptious and great idea especially for the dessert (Coconut / Asam leaf ice cream / pomelo / green Chilli) and Oyster with smoked tomato granita.

Many would assume that the Roast Pumpkin (part of the set lunch menu) is ordinary/less worth the price as compared to the Barramundi......but no. Not at all.

The star of the show, the roasted pumpkin, was creamy and not too sweet, with everything else on the plate playing an integral role in contributing to the nuanced flavours of this dish. The smokey toasted pumpkin seeds provided a toothsome crunch, the pumpkin chutney was sweet and aromatic, and the spiced cashew nut sauce was silky and mild (in a good way, tasted like a curried satay sauce). I could rave on and on about the kale....that didn't taste like kale (the typical 'taste' of green veggies) at all. What sorcery is this????? I can barely comprehend or describe how addictive the kale was but I would've eaten plates and plates of it.

This was simply divine and I was blown away by how the combination of such simple ingredients could result in such a beautifully balanced, complex work of art. I genuinely enjoyed every mouthful - it's just that good. You MUST get this if you head down for lunch.

Coconut (part of the set lunch menu), was confusing at first, but the Thai-inspired flavours slowly grew on me. It's a fine example of incorporating ingredients typically used in savoury dishes into desserts. The laksa leaf ice cream is very unique, even though the flavour seemed to gradually dissipate with every mouthful, with the milkiness taking over. I especially enjoyed the not-too-sweet coconut semifreddo with green chilli sauce (first thing that came to mind upon tasting was GREEN CURRY 😆). Along with the addition of juicy pomelo and chopped peanuts, this is one dessert you should try if you're seeking something different!

Chef Rishi shared that his Mom used to make this for him and this is his interpretation of it. We were treated to a version which used rich dark chocolate. Chef @rishinaleendra, thanks for hosting this and giving us a glimpse of what Sri Lankan food is all about. I felt as if I was eating a home cooked Sri Lankan meal, prepared with a lot of love.

What surprised us about this dish is the prawn gravy. So rich and flavourful, from the prawn stock. Yummy!

Creamy and nutty, this was really delicious. Once you start, you can't stop.

We had no idea what to expect. When I first tasted it, it reminded me of Ayam buah keluak, perhaps it is due to the smoky, earthy flavours. This dish grows on you, the more you eat, the more you love it.

We were in awe. Loved how some of them were served in baskets made from banana leaves. Featured here are the coconut sambal and pickled eggplant. The coconut sambal was really lovely, with freshly toasted desiccated coconut and a hint of sourness, perhaps from limes? The pickled brinjal was so good that I have to confess I probably ate the lion's share of it. Loved the anchovies in it.

We were served fish cutlets and mutton rolls. Both were very well seasoned and fried to crispy perfection.

Today Chef @rishinaleendra and his team at @cheekbyjowlsg shared the chef's culture by churning out these fantastic Sri Lankan dishes, all for a good course. Proceeds were to help in a Culinary Empowerment Centre in Sri Lanka.

The best cheese bread I might ever have. The bun was served warm, with a crisp but tender crust and a soft fluffy inside. The bun itself was cheesy, but you wouldn't want to do away with the cheese mousse, which was really fragrant and velvety smooth but not overwhelming. I would have eaten 10 more if not for the other dishes which were equally enticing!
