The menu is inscribed on a double side wooden board which at first glance looks like any other Asian menu for the starters and more so for the main courses for which headings are a typical European style menu, but when one reads the small descriptive print after each item, it all starts to make sense of what the Chef actually wishes to convey. But then again, as the saying goes, the proof of the pudding is in the eating...
