PiDGiN has always been a place I wanted to check out. I went with a friend to try their prix-fixe tasting menu for $55 per person, but there was an awesome voucher on TravelZoo for the 7 course dining for 2 people at $66, so I purchased it to save a little bit of money.
The interior is hip and cozy. The lighting is dim but it sets the atmosphere.
Since it was happy hour, drinks were on special, so I grabbed Tiger, which is an Asian Lager. Good and crisp to pair with the dishes.
Some daily pickles were carrot, onions and cucumbers. Nice to much on as we waited for the other dishes.
This also has apple, cucumber granite, and a horseradish dashi. AN interesting combination of flavours.
The salad comes with marinated tofu, onsen egg and wasabi yogurt. A good refreshing salad before the other dishes arrived.
This dish has 3 pieces of mantou bread with bayildi, miso, eggplant, onion, and tomato.
This is topped with a delicious ramen egg, soy yuzu brown butter, and onion puree. If you love mushrooms, you’ll love this dish. The mushrooms just soak up all that delicious butter.
This dish has clams, maitake mushrooms, sesame butter, and tobiko. The salmon is perfectly cooked with more mushrooms and the yummy calms.
Topped with broccolini, spinach gomae, and some local wasabi. The wasabi was freshly grated and not as potent as the ones in tubes. The dish was ok but the gomae was on the salty side.
Chai Panna Cotta
The dessert was ok but I didn’t really take a liking to it.
Overall, it was a good 7-course meal between myself and my friend. The dishes were well thought out, there is lots of food between 2 people.
