I recently dined with fellow Blogger Abimarvel at the Novikov Restaurant in Mayfair. The restaurant is split into two. There is an Asian Restaurant and an Italian Restaurant. We ate at the Asian Restaurant.
The manager of Novikov gave us a tour of the resturant and showed us the Resuarant’s Market. Within this market there were different fruits, vegetables and fresh seafood. You could pick anything you like and they would create a meal from the ingredients you chose.
We then decided what we were going to have meals from the menu. The manager recommended that we should have the black cod spring rolls with a mango sauce for a starter. We thought why not and so tried it and instantly knew why he recommended it. It was a very unique combination but worked so well together.
The Manager came over and told us the chef had made us raw seafood platter just for us which was extremely generous of him. We had no idea what to expect as all I really heard were the words ‘Raw’ and ‘Seafood’, which I had never tried so got a little bit nervous as I had no idea what to expect. A plate of raw scallops arrived and so we thought that was the platter. The actual platter arrived and it was huge. It looked very pretty and so was hoping it would taste good. We would try different things to make sure we tried everything and give each other feedback on each .Some were delicious. And some were well interesting. I was surprised to find that caviar is actually delicious. It was definitely a very interesting and new experience for us.
We then decided what we were going to eat. Abi ordered the Roast Half Duck. She had the duck with Special Pork Char Sui fried rice.
For Dessert Abimarvel had pineapple ravioli for dessert. I know ‘Pineapple Ravioli’. I didn’t know such a thing existed. It was delicious though and had a berry centre. On top was a scoop of berry sorbet.
Here’s the menu! Take a look!
