Filets de perche

Le Petit Chêne, August 2010 in Lausanne, Switzerland

On the first evening of my first trip to French-speaking part of Switzerland, I looked at menus outside of many restaurants trying to find some place for an authentic dinner. Then I found that almost every restaurant serves some fish called “perche” in French.

When we finally sat down in this friendly nice little bar/restaurant, I ordered this dish without hesitation. And it’s delish!

Risotto Cappesante

STRADA, June 2009 in London, UK

Pan fried scallops on a risotto of leeks, pancetta, white wine, lemon zest, chilli & basil.

I had this dish in London on my way back to Taiwan. Very surprisingly generous for a chain restaurant, the scallops are big and juicy and fried just in the right way.

Langoustine

Hanner, May 2009 in Mayerling, Austria

This is the first time I have raw shrimp/lobster in European cuisine, and indeed Restaurant Hanner is famous for its creative dishes.

Creamy raw langoustine, fresh flower, green noodle, and crisply roasted sour-sweet black currant are not only fabulously arranged, but also  a great combination of texture and flavour.

*Langoustine is also called Norway lobster

Hotategai and Amaebi Sushi

leave a comment »

Tenmaya, March 2009 in Vienna, Austria

They are both raw of course: Hotategai (scallop) and Amaebi (sweet shrimp) are my two favorite nigiri sushi. I’m so happy to be able to have them in Vienna.

This Japanese restaurant in the first district in Vienna is very popular also among Japanese people. Japanese sushi chef, Japanese waitresses, Japanese customers sitting next to you…in here, you don’t feel like in Vienna anymore.

Seafood-salad with Maine Lobster, Zucchini Flower, Berries & Red clover

with one comment

Steirereck, August 2008 in Vienna, Austria

I can still remember the natural sweetness in the lobster. In this dish, lots of herbs and spices are used with berries to create the fond, the dark color is from sepia. It’s very popular now to eat flowers and grass/leaves. Well, as long as they aren’t poisonous, why not? But from my few experiences as “cattle”, I really didn’t taste much. Probably real cattle have different taste buds.
