Living Food by Ashley's....Living Around the World Menu

To my horror, I discovered this draft post, long overdue.  Apologies to Ashley!!!

Not sure whether the "Living Around the World" special menu is still there, but nevertheless, it was rather interesting, and I am sure some items would have found its way into the regular menu.

Mushroom Pattie... well, it's certainly not meat, so feels exceedingly healthy.

Green curry with Jicama Rice.  It's all the rage, Jicama (pronounced hicama), and turns out it's actually our sengkuang.  Jicama certainly sounds far more exotic than sengkuang.

Cherry Tomato Tartlet, which strictly speaking, is probably a deconstructed tartlet, as there is not tart shell to speak of.  Raw almond panna cotta with pesto.  Love the almond panna cotta.

Avocado Verrine, a gorgeous medley of avocado, walnut butter, strawberry, lettuce and truffle oil.  Light and refreshing, with a summery feel.

Walnut Pate and Olive Pate.

A very interesting mango wrap, kind of like a huge vegetarian spring roll.  The wrap itself is made of mango, and has an interesting leathery texture, but I couldn't really tell that there was mango present.  Whilst the vegetables within the wrap were crisp and refreshing, I personally didn't like the mango wrap, unique though it was.

Vietnames Rice roll, which is probably the most "normal" and instantly recognisable thing on the menu.

The nasi ulam, again, with Jicama, a lovely fragrant combination of herbs that make up nasi ulam, like ginger flower, french beans, kafir lime leaves, in a spinach wrap.

Tabouleh, or a form of it, made from quinoa.

A very healthy tempura...

Lemon Tartlet for dessert, together with the very pretty and elegant Eton Mess...

As an encore, lest we were not full, their signature squid ink pasta, which is really very good.  The noodles are nicely al dente and the seafood fresh.  A rather substantial meal on it's own.

And finally, their signature pescatarian burger, with bun made from forbidden rice.  Forbidden rice is rice that was reserved for royalty, and therefore forbidden to the masses.  The burger is very lush and filling, with a variety of flavours to tingle your palate.
