Shake 502: A celebration for four

August 20, 2011

Claim your dolphin dome!

As of June, the much loved Jonah’s welcomed Alfonso Ales and his impressive résumé (Ferran Adria, Bilsons), so we decided to celebrate our four years with a bit of fine cuisine and uninterrupted ocean views at Whale Beach. Leading up to today, it was all doom and gloom forecast by the weather bureau, but fortune smiled on us and we were lucky enough to enjoy the breathtaking view without the clouds!

The view, the food and the service lends itself to a very leisurely, long lunch, so I won’t bore you with all the details. Let’s just say it’s beautifully well-executed food, well-matched wines and service that you can’t fault. And when you mix it with a view of the ocean that stretches out to the horizon, it’s an award-winning combination.

Slow cooked octopus with roasted garlic chips and hot paprika oil

Scallops with apple and celeriac remoulade, caviar and sesame tuile

Veal medallions, foie gras and truffle sauce (the winner!)

Kingfish and scampi with ginger and kaffir lime consomme

The chocolate sin! Chocolate ice cream, chocolate ganache and sauce, topped with a chocolate tuile!
