Dégustation Menu at Barat Mediterranean Vegetarian Restaurant.
2nd course: Salad of baby arugula, rocket, chard, sweet basil, dragon fruit, radish, dehydrated blueberries and tempura mandarin orange slices with roasted sesame dressing and blood orange press with olive oil.
To others, this is the salad. To me, this is the pièce de résistance. The crunchy exterior and juicy tart interior of the tempura orange slices added a dynamic contrast to the cold crispness of the different fruits and vegetables, while the roasted sesame dressing provided a hint of umami. A definite winner, this salad. I could eat this all day, every day.
