A house decked out in Victorian style fronted by a lush garden for al fresco dining.
Instead of specialising in one cuisine, A Garden presents cuisines from several regions of Europe with a dash of originality from owner/chef Ayupat Jirayus. Begin with shrimp salad featuring a mould of avocado guacamole with balsamic dressing; its zesty tang makes for a reinvigorating appetiser. Showing that A Garden emphasises presentation as much as taste is tenderly grilled lamb chop with aromatic rosemary jus, vegetable ratatouille and potatoes in a serving enough to satisfy two. Cajun-seasoned salmon with rocket salad is an adventurous pick, but rewarding because of the mango relishes which reduce the cajun spices to a sweet nuance with its fruity succulence. The food's light nature should leave room for desserts such as hot chocolate soft cake.
