MY PUPPY and new dishes @MasQue, St Leonards

We’ve been to MasQue in St Leonard’s before, and we lucky to be invited back to try the new winter menu options. They’ve kept some of their original items such as the awesome Wagyu Tataki and Soba and the duck wrap, but have added some items perfect for winter.

Their Congee is a superb one. It is absolutely stunning in appearance and delicious in taste. It is a thick congee made with dried seafood, cordycepsmilitians, split mung beans, shallot and topped with a salted duck yolk golden crisp. This makes the top crunch and means the crunchy soft shell crab remains crunchy and protected. A lot of thought has gone into the production of this one and they aren’t copying other styles.

We tried some Taiwanese chicken bites too. They are nice and tender inside, coated with a sweet potato flour.

Another new addition is the Flaming bowl with truffle Kombu sauce. This is a decent sized rice bowl, topped with your choice of salmon or wagyu. We chose the pan seared marble graded Wagyu graded sirloin. It comes served atop the rice and staff sear the meat infront of you. The meat certainly is high quality and it works well with the accompanying sides. These include Japanese ginger and pickle, a soft boiled egg, crunchy salted egg duck crumb coated tofu and a handmade truffle and soya sauce. This dish is perfect for winter / it is warm and filling.

 

They have a range of drinks like “emoji” bags, full of bubble tea and soda. I chose to try the black tea latte, which the taste was a nice mix between a chai and a latte. I chose this because it comes with flavours and tools to produce your own latte art.

 And not to mention MY PUPPY! This is what you have got to try. My video has been going mental on instagram. It is a puppy, theft is made from Nutella mousse and it legitimately looks like a little puppy, cut it open if you dare! But you must – filled with honey orange sponge cake, garnished with biscuit crumb and fruits. It’s so good to eat! But get in early, they’re limited.

The cafe is open for lunch and dinner late on the weekends. It is quaint, spacious and open and decorated with bright masks. Lots of character. Staff are extremely friendly and hospitable and it’s an enjoyable.
