We hadn’t been to Ember since they revamped and re-opened under their new head chef, so we decided to stick with tradition and returned for our anniversary in November. Thankfully, although they’ve launched some new dishes, they’ve kept some of their bestsellers like the Chilean seabass (yay!) and the pork belly.
I’m happy to report that it’s still pretty much the same Ember experience, from the warm sundried tomato bread to start with, to the 4-course set dinner for $88. We tried a few new dishes, like a Jerusalem artichoke soup and a light pistachio sponge dessert, which were really good.
Of course, I made a beeline for the Chilean seabass, and it's still as good as ever. Perfectly cooked fish, and a very flavourful bacon and mushroom ragout. The lamb dish that A had was a little character-less in comparison – the lamb was well-cooked but it seemed to lack any real lamb flavour.
All in all, if they maintain the standard and keep our old favourites, looks like Atetoomuch will keep celebrating our anniversary here.
Still good. Although I miss the old wait staff. Worth a revisit.
