He Says She Says launched their opening a few months ago in the well established suburb of Camberwell. I was lucky enough to recieve an invite to the grand opening. I was a little shocked and hesitant to venture out, but decided to fulfil my food blogger duties.
Upon arrival I was pleasantly surprised. This restaurant, café, bar was immaculately set up and had great vibes running through. Great vibes/free drinks! (Perks of being a food blogger.)
I had to compliment one of the owners on the design of their restaurant. I loved balance of masculine vs feminine combined with elegance.
The bar has a lovely selection of wines to compliment their excellent menu.
We were presented with amazing sample dishes from their menu prepared by their head chef Michael Harrison.
Drank a little too much to remember everything I ate, but I do remember my tastebuds were very satisfied.
Oysters, orgasm in the mouth. Ate more than my fair share, and I would happily do it again.
The main sample dish from the launch night. Spiced lamb shoulder with tabouleh saffron yoghurt and lamb jus. Very fragrant, flavoursome and juicy.
The media launched proved to be a great success, not only for the restaurant but for me too. I had a blast and met some excellent foodies and rich people while enjoying excellent food and booze.
A few months later, I came back to see what this restaurant is ‘really’ like. Without the pressure of Masterchef celebrities and food critics.
Once again the presentation of the restaurant was immaculate.
Gorgeous eatware and drinkware, tables set up to perfection.
We had an excellent waiter too who recommended some great dishes for us to try. Although I wanted everything on the menu.
Rockling tartare, puffed rice and chive dressing with shaved foie gras. Didn’t know what a lot of those words were but tasted superb. I tried this dish at the launch and it was one of my favourites.
Prawn, chicken and shiitake dumplings with roast chicken consommé. Coming from an asian background, I was anxious to see how this would turn out. I felt much relief and pleasure as these delicious dumplings entered my mouth along with the flavoursome consommé.
John Dory served on white wine pasta with fennel. Deliciously fresh and vibrant zesty flavours.
Braised beef cheek suppose to be served with cornichon and caper relish but they changed this dish up a little and served it with pumpkin pureé. Delectable. Moist. Tender. I enjoyed every bite of this and highly recommend this dish.
He Says She Says is a well rounded venue with sophistication, elegance and a bit of quirk.
