Sucrine Lettuce - also called the little gem lettuce, is a breed which aces both of the 2 most important features among lettuces, crispy and sweet. In Esquina, they grill it to give it a smokey char without overcooking or softening the lettuce. Complemented with a punch of flavour from the minty herb yoghurt, and macadamia nuts for the extra crunchiness.

I really enjoyed this, and was amazed at how Chef Carlos managed to transform the simple lettuce into such a memorable and appetising dish!
