Dégustation Menu at Barat Mediterranean Vegetarian Restaurant.
6th course: Basil pesto on fried aubergine and micro greens (left), sundried tomato pesto with ricotta cheese on japanese cucumber (centre) and capsicum pesto on wafer (right).
Lin and I are both very partial to pesto, and this trio of pesto was quite delightful. The sweet mintiness of the basil really shone on the slice of fried aubergine, although Lin found the aubergine a little too greasy for her liking. The tomato and ricotta pesto was refreshing and delicious without actually standing out in my mind as being something truly remarkable. The capsicum pesto is zesty and full-flavoured and easily our favourite of the trio.
