Sashimi- Kampachi, Ikagai, Chutoro

MRX Signature Trio Platter- Deep fried prawn ball stuffed with foie gras; steamed bamboo pith stuffed with cuttlefish paste in premium oyster sauce; chiller crab meat tar-tar with mango puree and black caviar
Comment: Cantonese appetizer that taste really similar to those appetizers that you normally get in Chinese restaurant. The only dish that caught me is chiller crab meat tar-tar with unique texture. Overall, there is nothing to shout about taste wise.

Otoro topped with Bafun Uni and Baked Truffle

Comment: Super huge piece of bird's nest, very generous! Definitely a bowl of collagen goodness for ladies. Flavorful supreme stock, so on point.

Negitoro topped with Engawa
Comment: Both my favorites in one dish. Fatty, oily but addictive, everything just melts in my mouth, burst with flavors. Can't say no to this dish.

Botanebi topped with Murasaki Uni, Caviar & Golf Leaf
Comment: Sweet and juicy botanebi w mildly sweet uni

Crispy Peking Duck w Italy Black Winter Truffle
Comment: Crispy duck skin with chewy duck meat. It would be better if the duck meat is more tasty.

The extra complimentary duck meat that we got when we requested for it.

Foie Gras with Unagi
Comment: Foie gras and unagi sandwich, cholesterol rich food. I like it eating them together in one bite, soft texture and fill your mouth with rich goodness.
