but it turned out to be… not so inventive. we opted the five course tasting, which turned out to be… four course.
pork three ways – i loved this dish and the crispy pork skin and the melt in your mouth tenderness blew my mind; however, the pork belly didnt come with crispy skin this time. very very disappointed.
although these dishes are craigie’s signature dishes, i was expecting a more inventive and spontaneous or even adventurous meal as described for the chef’s whim tasting menu. the 5-course meal was indeed a 4 course meal. (unless they are counting the palate cleanser as one course now. they used to be complimentary with the 3 course meal.) i was also disappointed by the pork 3 ways which i used to worship. although the food was still delicious for the most part, i dont recommend the chef’s whim tasting menu.
