MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

The Ma family’s heart and soul is in this Shaw gem. It’s hip, yet family-friendly, and a mix of locals, tourists and political suits packs this energetic space. Rabbit rillettes sandwiched between fried green tomato-turnip cakes drizzled with salted plum sriracha and sesame-soy sauce show off Chef Tim Ma's confirmed trademark blend of French-tinged Asian-flavored cooking. Sous vide duck confit is a clear winner, where moist, tender duck is sweet, smoky and salty; balanced by caramelized Brussels sprouts; and finally offset by a tangy apple cider gastrique. One word-irresistible! All good things must come to an end, but definitely order the matcha pavlova, a matcha meringue served with black sesame-flavored whipped cream for a nutty, not-too-sweet finale.
