Aquavit: a Michelin two star restaurant
My dear steemit friends, I would like to share fantastic food journey in Aquavit, which is a two Michelin star restaurant. They serve awesome Scandinavian/Nordic cuisine!
This is how the restaurant looks outside.
Warm and soft banana bread with butter to wake up your palates.
Appetizer 1: beef tartar with fish roes and poached egg. The poached egg is the best handled one I ever had! It's right in the boundary of liquid and solid, where the taste and texture is perfect as liquid, but stays together when you cut it to avoid the mess.
Appetizer 2: pickle fish, potato tart, and potato skillet. Fish is juicy and potato is crispy yet flavorful .
腌鱼肉，土豆塔，配铁板土豆。很地道的北欧菜 lol 味道很不错
Entree 1: cod, avocado, and poached egg. Again, the poached egg is perfect!
Entree 2: black-end seared sea bass . Delicious!
Desert 1: birds' nest. This is the best dish of the meal! The details are perfectly handled: the "egg shell" was created with white chocolate and is hard, while the "egg" is stuff with cheese so it's soft. They even make sure the "egg yolk" is yellow! And, it's really delicious!
Desert 2: cake with ice cream, also delicious!
Some of you might be interested about price. It's actually not bad! A pre-fix menu for lunch is $58, including 3 dishes (the pickled fish w/ potato, black-ended sea bass, and cake w/ ice cream). The other three dishes are a bit more expensive so it costs about $200 in total (tax and tips included). As two Michelin star restaurant, it's really decent!
If you are interested to try, it's in midtown east, New York.
