Our specially prepared vegan lunch at Six Senses Duxton was a feast of delicate and divine, plant based goodness, this combined with the ambiance of Yellow Pot at lunchtime and the attentive service making it a memorable vegan lunch indeed.
Our duo of starters were ‘Chilled Organic Vine-Ripened Tomatoes’ and ‘Vegetable Spring Rolls with Apricot Sauce’, the Li Hing plum infused tomatoes which were topped with organic micro herbs were juicy and perfectly sweet, the flavour exploded in your mouth and left us wanting more. Next up were the spring rolls and trust us when we say these were no ordinary spring rolls and the accompanying sauce was no ordinary apricot sauce; homemade Worcestershire sauce combined with homemade apricot jam for a spicy, fruity and tangy deliciousness, providing the perfect partner for the crispy spring rolls which were packed with vegetables and rich shiitake mushrooms, wow.
We shared a selection of 5 main courses with the first being ‘Vegetable Soup with Shimeji-Stuffed Tomatoes’, it was a light and flavoursome vegetable broth that was akin to the flavour usually delivered by a traditional double-boiled soup, with the sweetest of tomatoes perfectly complimented by the earthy flavour of the mushrooms within. Next up were ‘Fried Lions Mane Mushrooms’ and all we can say is that we need more of these in our life; the firm and meaty texture is unique, they were lightly fried, perfectly seasoned and served with avaocado puree, topped with finely diced radish they were outstanding, so good that we requested the same dish with our dinner in the evening!
The remaining 3 main course worked very well together, a ‘Braised Kampong Style Bean Curd with Young Leeks’ was a somewhat soothing dish with perfectly cooked and delicious firm tofu, white cabbage and carrots allowing the young leeks to be the star of the show due to their fresh flavour; this was served with a fresh and crunchy ‘Wok Fried Pea Shoots & Beansprouts’ and ‘Black Olive Fried Rice with Shitake’ on the side.
Our vegan lunch at Six Senses Duxton ended with ‘Lemongrass & Calamansi Jelly with Fresh Fruits’, the refreshing jelly with delicate flavours of lemongrass and calamansi throughout provided the perfect finale to a very enjoyable vegan dining experience.
