Little Hunter – RIP

So this was a dinner that we had last year late Sept, right before Little Hunter closed it’s doors forever in October.  I must say, this was my second time there and I enjoyed it more than the first.  This time round I got to eat really rich food and lots of it!

Started with the customary cheesy bread with chicken skin butter.   First time I had this, it was a revelation.  This time round, it was a bit too rich.  Not sure if the dish changed, or I changed. IMG_1075 Made the mistake of ordering a fish dish in a meat restaurant.   The dill cured ocean trout, horseradish, creme fraiche, capers was really the token non-meat-lover appeasing dish.  It was a good entree, but nothing outstanding. IMG_1076 The roast duck in puy lentils entree was amazing.  The duck was smoky, and had a good crispy skin.   The lentils were exploding with flavour. IMG_1077 I ordered the “Poon Boon Lamb, gnoccho alla Roma,  braised chard, crushed olives” dish as I was quite intrigued by the description that I would be getting different pieces of lamb in different types of prep.  Geez was I shocked when the dish arrived and it was huge!  There was a sausage, a roast, a braise,  a loin with little pieces of gnocchi!  Amazing in taste, but an overwhelmingly large dish. IMG_1078 We had battered broccoli, salted ricotta for a side.  Yeah, went a bit overboard with the ordering there… IMG_1079 My boyfriend ordered the Wagyu flank, lyonnaise onions, confit kiplers, which by comparison to my Poon Boon lamb looked like a dainty supermodel.IMG_1080

I’m disappointed that Little Hunter has disappeared.  There were glimpses of brilliance in the menu.  Oh well…
