Lolo Dad\'s appetizer sampler 

Some things come in small packages, in this case appetizers. We love sampler plates as our greedy little selves could try out a lot of food in one seating. Our visit to Lolo Dad’s was no exception. We ordered their appetizer samplers which were 8 different dishes and served in quadrant dishes.

Seared Duck Foie Gras and Goose liver Terrine – Cranberry compote, Highland greens and Black vinegar reduction

Romaine Caesar salad – Whole anchovies, crispy Pancetta and six minute boiled Egg

Mesclun salad with Salmon Gravlax – Feta cheese, Kalamata olives and warm Garlic-Bacon vinaigrette

Soft shell crab Parmigiana – Mixed salad leaves and horseradish aioli

Lightly seared Ahi Tuna and smoked Prawns – Grilled watermelon and artichoke salad

Double Espresso soup – Individual presentation of creamed tomatoes and mushrooms with fleuron

Seafood Pot-au-feu – Boiling seafood broth flavoured with saffron baby lobster and steamed fish dumpling

 The double espresso soup is still the best. The last time I had eaten in Lolo Dad’s was years back and the espresso soup was the one which stood out in my memory. Right balance of creaminess and flavors from the tomatoes and mushrooms served in small cups to leave you with the taste but wanting more…. for the next visit. The lobster was perfectly seasoned.

We also had to try out their oysters. They were pricey but the oysters with foie gras was worth it. Fresh, plump oysters matched well the rich butter taste of the foie gras.
