Another chapter in the story that is Enigma - Palazzo Versace Hotel, Dubai
The first dish is served. Ahtapot or Octopus is place din front of us. The 78˚c - 8 cooked octopus is tender beyond words. You know how you have come to associate this protein with a rubbery texture? Well, you will not find it here. My first bite has that 'dissolve in your mouth' feel to it - you know the cliché. But as I am marvelling at the texture, there is a burst of citrus that bewitches. Also, the avocado that now reaches my palate does not escape the citrus taste as it too has an infusion of citrus, but not the point that it overpowers the avocado. I have another bite - I make sure to combine all three principle ingredients. What a stellar start to the evening. Truly.
