Ms G’s Potts Point – Had to go back! Awesome meal!

I had such a wonderful meal at Ms G’s the first time that I HAD to come back. I was back within less than a week – a little excessive perhaps but I didn’t get to try enough dishes the first time, that I knew I had to come back! So, four days after my visit, I came here with the family. I was a little reluctant in taking my parents here, especially my mum. I thought the place would be a little loud for them, but surprisingly, they absolutely loved it! Mum didn’t find it loud and she loved the funky and cool interior! I was also a little worried about the food – sometimes when I take Mum to a Chinese or Indonesian restaurant she would complain about the quality of the food and I have to agree, sometimes, hers is actually better. However, with Ms G’s – no complaints at all! She absolutely loved it and even wanted me to introduce her to Dan Hong so that she could ask for the recipe!! Both my parents absolutely loved it and were hoping to come back soon.

Dan saw me come in and as soon as we were seated he came to our table, greeted us with a plate of pickles – on the house! THANK YOU! The pickles were absolutely light and refreshing. A combination of sour, sweet and spicy pending on what you ate. My sis-in-law, O and I couldn’t help but dig into the kimchi! We were fighting for every last bit of it. You know – I wouldn’t be able to name all the pickles on the plate but we all certainly enjoyed it!

They left all the ordering to me, and I knew we had to start with these little goodies! Five delicious mini banh mi – crispy pork belly all for me!

The thought of eating all five mini banh mi ($6 each) did occur to me. They were that good that one was simply not enough. It was as good as the first time, and everyone agreed with me that one was just not enough!

I had to order the Vietnamese steak tartare, prawn crackers ($18) again. I know how much my brother, F, loves steak tartare and had to make sure he tried this one. He absolutely loved it, so did my Dad, they were both fighting for every single last bit. It was just THAT good!

F wanted to try the grilled beef tongue, lemongrass and tomato salsa. This was no ordinary beef tongue, it was a little thicker than I thought but it was just as good! The beef tongue was tender and succulent. The lemongrass really gave it that extra flavouring and the tomato salsa was refreshing and gave it a nice touch.

Next, the fried baby chicken, kimchi mayonnaise (whole $30) was one of the highlights amongst the diners. We all LOVED the tender, crispy, finger licking good, chicken. F literary licked the little bowl of kimchi mayonnaise. Mum kept wondering how it was so crispy, and Dad was urging her to ask Dan! It was salty, it was crispy, it was tender and it was frigging AWESOME! I don’t think a whole chicken was enough, we could have easily eaten at least two or perhaps three servings of these!

Angus scotch fillet, fried egg, hoisin mustard, crisp garlic ($32). This was absolutely wonderful. The hoisin mustard was subtle but delightful, the crispy garlic was crispy and really gave the whole dish that extra ‘crunch’. The fried egg was ingenious, I love how the yolk oozed and you scrape the beef, the hoisin mustard and crisp garlic together. WOW!

Check out the rareness of the beef – it was so tender, and so succulent it just melted in your mouth! It’s certainly a very unique way of eating your scotch fillet!

I couldn’t help but order the braised pork belly ‘Hue Style’, konnyaku noodles, lemongrass, chili broth ($24). The pork belly was incredibly tender and succulent with a slither of fat. The lemongrass was very light and the chili really gave it that nice kick. Again the chili wasn’t strong, it was extremely subtle, for me anyway as I can take a decent amount of spiciness. I didn’t try any of the noodles, but Mum and F seemed to have enjoyed it.

Last but not least, this is a must order! Mulloway fillet steamed with white soy and ginger, salad of fennel, radish and herbs ($28). For most of the diners, this was also one of the highlights of evening. The broth was just outstanding! We all loved it and like my first visit could have easily drunk this on its own. The fish was simply stupendous, so fresh and so tender. The broth, totally and utterly tremendous. It was better than the first time, this was absolutely marvelous and definitely one of my favourites!

I made sure we ordered dessert this time round. F and I couldn’t go pass the “Stoner’s Delight” banana ice cream, chocolate, rice bubbles, pretzel, peanut brittle and marshmallow ($12). Three words – OH MY GOODNESS! The marshmallows were lightly toasted so it was slightly warm which was nice. The chocolate rice bubbles brought me back to my childhood – it was crunchy and chocolaty. The peanut brittle – oh my, who doesn’t like peanut brittle? We were fighting for every single last piece! The banana ice cream was so creamy and so smooth that we could have eaten it straight from the container. The combination of the chocolate, the brittle, the creamy ice cream and the crunch from the bubbles were just astonishing. We were in awe and F kept muttering ‘delicious, my goodness, delicious’! This was also one of the highlights amongst the diners!

We also ordered the “Jam Doughnut” cinnamon doughnut, ice cream and raspberry jelly ($12). The doughnut was deep fried and cut into tiny pieces on a mountain of cream which was served with raspberry jelly and compote with ice cream. I can’t for the life of me remember what flavour it was, but that’s because I only managed to eat a tiny spoon as it was devoured by everyone! It was a very clever way of presenting “Jam Doughnut” – it tasted like jam doughnut, just not in the way that everyone expect doughnuts to be. Ingenious!

We totally and utterly enjoyed every single dish! My favourite would have to be the Mulloway fillet, followed by the fried baby chicken. The “Stoner’s Delight” was definitely the best out of the two desserts, but we did see the “splice” pine-lime granite, lychee sorbet and whipped cream and it looked divine! Parents definitely enjoyed it, they loved the atmosphere, the layout, and most importantly they loved the food! I knew F and O would enjoyed it but was surprised at how much my parents loved it!

We also ordered Ms G’s Famous Yuzu Slushee – limoncello, Russian standard vodka, yuzu juice and Regan’s orange bitters. It was so sour but at the time so refreshing that neither of us could stop drinking it. Dad kept saying how sour it was but before I knew it, it was gone! It went down so nicely, albeit sour-y!

Am I that fickle? Could this be my new love? It is ok to love more than one restaurants right? It’s called sharing the love! Like my last visit, ‘I WILL be back!’

[Asked F if I could borrow his camera, Nikon D90 and MAN! I need to get me a new camera!]

    I only just bought a new camera, a Sony S95 when it came out! Don’t regret buying a new camera 😀 The resolution is much better than my mobile phone’s one.

    Not I am thinking of a DSLR argh… It never stops 😀
