Lotus Restaurant, The Galeries

Upmarket Asian cuisine in a gorgeous modern setting.

Pikake jasmine tea infused Beefeater gin, botrytis Semillon, lychee, lemon juice, Angostura bitters and egg white $18

I loved this cocktail so much, simply elegance in a glass.

2015 Wines by KT ’5452′ Riesling Watervale SA $13 

                                        Snow Crane Tanqueray gin, Cointreau, yuzu jam, lemon juice garnished with shiso salt rim $18

Dumpling platter $28 Steamed dumplings: jade prawn, shiitake mushroom, fish and white radish, fresh scallop siu mai 

The dumpling platter allows you to sample a range of carefully pleated dumplings. Every one of the dumplings were chock full of the star ingredients – no filler.  A particular highlight were the jade prawn ones, the prawn pieces popping between the teeth.


Crispy skin duck pancakes with sweet miso and cucumber half duck $39 

The duck pieces are drier than your conventional peking duck however it was still very enjoyable, the crunchy texture of the skin was a delight to eat.

Crispy tofu white salt wild fire dukkah $17 

A light sprinkling of dukkah, followed by crunchy batter and hot, pillowy tofu interior – so simple yet so satisfying.

Slow cooked beef short ribs with ponzu soy $39

Beef short ribs were simply pull apart, meltingly soft and scooped over some white jasmine rice – were a delightful combination.

Chocolates and petit fours $12

The Shanghai noon macaron with black currant ganache
The firecracker macaron with pineapple jelly
Coconut and black sesame bar
Jasmine tea liquid centred white chocolate truffle 

Chocolate Lotus: chocolate and black sesame oil mousse, black sesame crisp and plum sorbet $16

Who knew sesame and chocolate would go so well together? The plum pieces and sorbet contrasted excellently with the intense dark chocolate sesame. It definitely doesn’t shy away from flavour, it’s bold, earthy and complex.

Ma Fleur de Lotus Yuzu brulee, coconut cake, salted white chocolate, coconut ice cream and yuzu paper $15

On the opposite end of the dessert spectrum to the Chocolate Lotus is the classic brulee, I really like yuzu so naturally am fond of anything that utilises it, if you like citrusy, coconutty, light desserts, I’d recommend this for you.

MsBrulee dined as guests of Lotus. Opinions however are my own.
