Food Picks: Yummy new menu from Corner House

I've been waiting eagerly to see how chef Jason Tan from Corner House is going to follow up on his impressive debut menu. Is he a one-hit wonder or a rising star who will continue to light up the local food scene?

His sophomore menu for dinner ($248 a person) has just been launched and it is a worthwhile follow-up.

Only one dish from the first menu is repeated, the Cevennes Onion that comes in various forms, such as confit and as a tea.

Others get a new interpretation, such as the New Zealand Cod "Crispy Scales", which is now in a brandade and sits on a poultry essence with soya flavouring instead of the old egg yolk confit sauce.

New dishes such as a Japanese Toriyama A4 Beef Tartare help me keep my faith in the chef. The match of beef and different kinds of beet, finely chopped up like a tartare, is truly excellent.

And the Surf & Turf Rice is lovely, with riso (rice-shaped pasta) topped by Maine lobster, Iberico pork and black truffles.
