Table No. 1 by Jason Atherton has reopened following a brief recess for renovation. We unknowingly decided to eat at Table No. 1 when Jason Atherton happened to be in the kitchen with head chef Christopher Pitts.
We ordered a deceivingly small amount of plates (or I thought) to share. Great presentation and vibrant colors on the plates. All delicious. We were sadly so stuffed that we didn’t even make it to mains, which will definitely be a reason to return.
Pistachio dip, focaccia bread (RMB¥48)
When our server first suggested this to us stating it is “light and refreshing,” I stared at him like are you serious, this sounds like a creamy dip. Nope, he was right.
Tuna tar tar, avocado, ponzu (RMB¥110)
Simple formula — fresh tuna, avocado, ponzu sauce — spot on (or is it on fleek these days).
Crispy pig ears fried, shaved cauliflower, shichimi chili (RMB¥58)
Spicy bite size snacks.
Chicken skin crisps (RMB¥38)
The only disappointment of the meal was this fried chicken skin, which was more batter than skin.
Beef tongue and tail bbq, eggplant, smoked honey sauce (RMB¥128)
On the heavier side, giant slabs of beef tongue and beef croquette.
Pan seared foie gras, duck ham, corn blini, strawberry jam (RMB¥128)
Probably my favorite dish of the meal with a bit of savory foie gras countered by sweet strawberry jam. ON FLEEK.
