Having our anniversary dinner here has summarized our one year since the launching of the blog. It's uneasy for a food blog to keep the readers interested. We always try having a slightly distinctive approach when reviewing any place and Brass is no different. We had three orders for the appetizers and one salad, and for the main courses, we had three plates.
For the appetizers, we had the truffle potatoes, beef carpaccio and Raspberry Lava and goat cheese salad.
The truffle potatoes with a pinch of parmesan were sensational and probably one of the most divine truffle-infused dishes I've ever tried. The beef carpaccio was okay but not special I've tasted better in South Africa. The Raspberry Lava which is basically Brie cheese and Raspberry jam was brilliant. I've been always a fan of mixing sweet with savory products, both ingredients complimented each other. We loved the goat cheese salad that was great by the addition of the figs that adds a lot to the dish.
For the main course, I wanted to have the duck that wasn't available so we had the waiter recommendations. We had the shrimp yellow curry, roasted beef fillet with red wine sauce and poulet. All three plates were very good but if we want to give them ranking we all agreed that the poulet was the best of the three. The chicken was juicy and just cooked right and the combination of the flavors just mouthwatering. Second, comes the roasted beef that really tender and the wine sauce brought life and earthy taste to the dish. In third comes the shrimp yellow curry that was also good but not as good of the first two. In general, it was an overwhelming experience and hopefully, I could come back real soon. I highly recommend such a place especially for their tremendous service and welcoming approach.
