I had a nice dinner with a friend @ Kali where my husband made a reservation for my birthday last year but we couldn’t make it because of my ear infection.
Almost empty when we arrived
Ordered 6 course tasting menu with wine pairing
Organic, Simple, Relaxing
1st course: Oyster, Rose Sparkling
“1st” course: Uni Two Ways
Since my friend can’t eat oysters, they offered something else for both of us. I had both oyster and uni. Yay!
Uni is so sweet on basked cube polenta.
Crisp and dry
2nd course: Heirloom Tomato with Pesto
Rosemary bread & butter
3rd course: Uni Pasta
Two pieces of chunky uni underneath foam. I loved gluey homemade pasta.
My favorite grape, Roussane
Rich and full body
4th course: Black Cod with Parsley & Sweet Corn Sauce
Fatty fish is so delicious
Spanish red for steak
5th course: Ribeye Steak with Bone Marrow & Potato Churro
Steak is tender but a bit too much fat for me.
6th course: Meringelato with Candied Egg Yolk
Smooth ice cream is perfect to enjoy with Madeira.
Very reasonable for quality food and service
