My Two Favourite Dishes At Iggy's.

We come back mainly for these two pastas and the burgundies too of course.
*
Bucatini with braised oxtail, parmesan and truffle. This dish is consistently a winner - super delicious!
*
Capellini with Sakura ebi, lobster oil and konbu (kelp). This is the one dish that I always remember Iggy's for from the days at Regent Hotel. It was amazing then and still is. The right combination of flavours makes it umami.

Atlantic sardines (iwashi) prepared the Japanese way.

An oily fish in light and crispy batter. Yummy!
*
We had this the last we were here and thought it was a nice change from the Pintxos which was kohada (gizzard shad) prepared the Spanish way. Knowing that these sardines were seasonal, we made sure we ordered them again just in case they are no longer available the next time we visit πŸ˜‚.

Durian croquette.

We had this the last time we were here and we loved it. Thank you Chef @aitortxuchef for accommodating us again!
*
The crispy white bait and kumquat aioli provided an amazing salty and slightly sour contrast to the sweet flesh of the durian in the croquette. Still amazed at how bold a creation this was.

My favourite desserts at @saltedandhung.

*
Chocolate - with Mascarpone (Italian cream cheese) ice cream and amaretto (Italian liqueur) caramel on a bed of chocolate and espresso crumbs. This is my new favourite 😍. I now prefer it to my old favourite, the pavlova. It is so exciting when a new dish creates a wow which surpasses an old favourite!
*
The pear is another dessert which I like. This is one for those who prefer it less sweet and like the taste of ginger. The ginger flavour in the sauce was quite mild yet distinct enough. I loved it so much that I slurped up every bit of it.
*
The complimentary Anzac cookies are a perfect way to end the meal. These are the best ones I've had. The savoury flavour of bacon and salted caramel was an amazing contrast to the sweetness of the oat cookies.

Lamb leg with cabbage, eggplant and pistachio.

My mum and daughter loved this dish.
*
However, I found it a little too gamey and would have preferred it charred crispy.
*

Mangalica (Hungarian breed) pork belly.

Served with hazelnut and kale emulsion, Okinawa spinach and carrot.
*
Hailed as the Kobe beef of pork, the Mangalica pig is a descendant of the European wild boar and cousin of the black foot Iberian pig. It is no wonder that the meat was so tender and juicy. It was melt-in-your-mouth awesome! The marbling was so amazing that one couldn't tell where the layer of fat ended and where the meat began.
*
As one would expect with meat served at @saltedandhung , the pork belly was chargrilled to perfection with a lovely smoky flavour.

Black mash with squid ink.

This comes pretty close to what I would consider as the gold standard of mashed potatoes - Joel Robuchon's purΓ©e de pomme.
*
The kids are the best judge of course and they polished off every bit of it!
*

Wagyu ribeye with XO butter and garlic shoots.

This steak is the main reason we are back @saltedandhung so often. So tender and full of flavour!
*

Bone marrow.

If you love oxtail and bone marrow, you will love this dish.
*
The best way to eat this (for me at least) is to spread the bone marrow onto the sourdough toast and top it with the oxtail reduction and beef fat crumbs. Very very sinful but so so yummy!

Kale.

With nori (seaweed), cheese, pine nuts and burnt butter. While the cheese made the dish a little rich, the pine nuts and burnt butter gave it a nutty savoury flavour.
*
Another vegetable dish where Chef @drewnocente worked some magic and made it taste good. If you have trouble getting your kids to eat vegetables, this is the place to bring them to πŸ˜‚. Even brussel sprouts and in this case, kale, taste yummy. My favourite is most definitely the cauliflower πŸ˜‹.

Squid.

Served with squid ink mayo, yuzu dressing and lardo (cured pork back fat). I love how Chef @drewnocente makes something so simple like squid taste so awesome! This just made it to my 'must order' list at @saltedandhung 😍😍😍.

Coconut espuma with calamansi and rambutan honey.

This was light, slightly tangy yet sweet but not overly so. My favourite dish of the night!
*
I love how Chef Elizabeth @the_modernchef kept this dish so light and refreshing.
