Guppy or earlier known as Guppy by Ai has established its name in the market by serving contemporary Japanese cuisine, A fine dining place but with peppy interiors is all set to woo you with its new winter menu.
Their Winter Menu is the reason why we were here, an intriguing one with a variety of dishes is sure to leave to speechless and also confused as to what to order.
We tried many items from the new menu, starting off with Lobster and Sea food Soup Kaminabe, kaminabe is essentially a paper hot pot. Lobsters, Prawns, Fish and Vegetables were inside that paper pot and hot Miso Broth poured on top. If you are both a seafood and a soup lover this one will not disappoint.
First up in appetizers was the Vegetarian Sushi Rice Crisps, Crispy rice cakes topped with Kimchi Pickles, Avocado Tartare, this one is a must try! The crispiness of the cakes complement the subtle toppings perfectly!
Next up was the Slow Cooked Tuna Steak made using fresh tuna and served with a spicy Ponzu sauce and a poached egg. The ponzu sauce isn’t that spicy so you can go ahead and order this one if you are a tuna fan!
How could we miss the Sushi, Battero Sushi with Tuna or Salmon on top was also extraordinary.
We also tried the hot favorites which are also included in this menu, Guppy House Salad and Seaweed, Mizuna and Daikon Salad. This one is made with fresh mustard, radish, seaweed and baby greens, served with ginger and plum dressing. A delightfully fresh preparation. The house Salad on the other hand lacked seasoning.
In the mains we had Mushroom Toban Yaki, Shitake, Enoki, Button and Oyster Mushrooms with some greens in a coconut cream.
Then was the Grilled Rock Lobster, was another spectacular preparation, the entire dish was a treat to the eyes as well, the Lobster was cooked perfectly and the winter vegetables added a much needed crunch.
We also had the chef recommended dish, The Chicken Ramen, made using home-made egg noodles in a special chicken stock and topped with a boiled egg, Delectable!
Overall the food is amazing, the subtle flavors and the fine presentation makes Guppy a must try!
