As I posted in my earlier post, Hubby bought home a bunch of white asparagus from Japan. Not knowing what to do with it, we kept it in the fridge for 3 days and finally I decided that we should eat it before it’s rotten. It would be such a waste to have it stir-fry with sambal belacan. So what should I do with it? Ah-Ha! I got a brilliant idea…bring it over for Max to cook it!
So off we went for dinner at Max! Kitchen yesterday with the bunch of white asparagus in my bag. We ordered a main dish each while we let Max decides on our appetizer, or rather, to surprise us. First of all, this bowl of rich and full of goodness mushroom soup is not in the menu. But since he got an order for a table of 8, so we were lucky to sample it too. You just won’t be able to imagine the aroma of the mushroom soup when it was served. The aroma was so garlicky and it looks so appetizing with some sautéed mushrooms and garlics sprinkled on top. Without wasting my time, I quickly snapped a few photos as I couldn’t wait putting a spoonful of it into my mouth. MMmmmm….delicious! We ended up requesting an extra serving of bread to dip into the soup….mmmmmm…….delicious!
I thought Hubby would go for beef or lamb so I was quite surprised when he ordered the Yellow Fin Tuna. I am not a fan of fish, especially cooked tuna so I didn’t pick on his plate.
I was struggling between the Wagyu Beef Cheek and the Lamb Cutlets. Finally, the Lamb won. As expected, the lamb cutlets were juicy and tender. Instead of the normal sautéed pea sprouts, Max replaced it with pickled brinjals. I simply love the mint sauce which goes so so well with the lamb.
You must be wondering what Max did to the white asparagus right? Actually he whipped up an appetizer using the white asparagus. Hehehe..I purposely put this photo last to stir your curiousity. Tada……presenting the sautéed white asparagus, accompanied by 4 huge succulent scallops and ferocious looking Yabbies!! My attention was diverted from the white asparagus as I was too busy enjoying the Yabbies. Ok Ok, back to the white asparagus. The texture was a bit too old and the stem more fiber, probably cos it was kept in the fridge too long. Tastewise, it’s sweeter than their ogre-green cousin minus the bitterness. Max’s creation was simply brilliant!
Now, what should I do with the 2 packets of frozen Hotate???
