Radius

22 08 2010

As one of my cousin’s say about me.. I’m drafting a review in my head as I have my meal. It’s quite true. I even take pictures with the review in mind. This time around, I had my Restaurant Week lunch with another cousin. She also loves eating and taking pictures. It’s always more enjoyable when I’m not the only food paparazzi at the table.

I’ve always wanted to try Radius since the first day it opened its door. A regular dinner there is not what I can afford. In the past, I was always too late to book a Restaurant Week reservation. Finally after years, I managed to get to this French restaurant.

Steak Tartare

My lunch here started with a Steak Tartare. This starter is very tasty. It went very well with the scallion pancake. I wish it gave more than 2 pieces. Even though I gave one piece to my cousin, 2 pieces is not suffice. Just eating the tartare by itself is a bit salty. As a whole combination, the taste was perfect.

Cumin Scented Cod

I had the Cumin Scented Cod for my main course. The crust was where all the taste was on the fillet. I didn’t really tasted much cumin. The salt was overpowering the spice. The cod went well with the¬†couscous where as it was too salty by itself. It was delectable and rich in fish flavor.

 Brown Sugar Brownie

As for the sweet ending, I had the Brown Butter Bownie  РHold the Caramel Sauce please! The brownie was not too decadent and not too sweet. Perfect! With the side of vanilla ice cream, it gave me the artic chill in a dining room that was blasting AC.

Radius is definitely worth the ratings my friends gave. Too bad I can’t afford fine dining that often!
