Earlier this year, the good folk over at Marmalade Pantry created a Buro cake specially for us. It was so delicious we broke all our diets and had one too many slices. The collaboration not only sated our cravings for all things sweet, it also whet our appetite for more collaborations with people who love food.
So we turned to Jones The Grocer, everyone's favourite Aussie brunch spot, to help us craft a three-course menu to translate the spirit of Buro 24/7 onto the plate. Picking up on Buro's drive for delivering the latest news in a fresh, contemporary fashion, the chefs at Jones The Grocer created seven dishes to echo just that. Think market-fresh produce combined in creative ways to deliver hearty, healthy dishes accented with plenty of Asian touches.
The three-course menu kicks off with a starter of pumpkin butternut squash soup, beetroot salad, or Thai beef salad. Mains-wise, you'll find crispy duck served with Shimeji mushrooms, Russet potatoes, and a Mesclun salad given an Asian-twist with plum dressing.
There's pan-roasted Harissa chicken too, served on a bed of cranberry and basil couscous. For those with heartier appetites, opt for the grilled lamb rack marinated in a vibrant Chimichurri sauce.
To end your meal on a sweet note, the classic panna cotta takes a tropical turn with the addition of coconut, all topped with a sumptuous mango coulis. At $29.90, the Buro-inspired three-course menu isn't going to burn a hole in your pocket. So go ahead, dig in and treat yourself.
This three-course menu is available at Jones The Grocer's Mandarin Gallery outlet from 16 to 29 November 2015 at $29.90. #04-21/22/23 Mandarin Gallery, 333 Orchard Road. Tel: 6836 6372
