It was a wondrous food journey at Amelia’s, when she took us on culinary tour from her Tai -tam home to the cuisines of southern Mexico.
We started with a delightfully, and named salad, “50 Shades of Grains and Green”. Although I didn’t count them, it was definitely a wide variety of almost any crisp veggie you can imagine, with a range of colors, textures and flavours, all drizzled in a delicately light dressing with hints of natural sweetness.
The muscle, clams and fish soup featured a rich, creamy textured broth. The freshly caught seafood bounty was cooked just right to bring out the wonderful taste that pops out of their fresh nature juices.
The next surprise was handmade red bean paste with a smooth texture and naturally sweet taste, wrapped in a triangle of corn tortilla. A savory sauce with hints of jalepano salsa, added a twist to the dish, complementing the flavour of the redbeans.
Amelia is passionate about getting the freshest ingredients. Other flavours were from ingredients she hand carried from Mexico. Nothing from a can, nothing from a box, nothing from a jar… every bite featured lovingly Amelia- created special touch.
Overall, it was a memorable experience with the quality ingredients, the freshness of each course, and a delightfully artistic presentation of each and every dish.
This wonderful dining experienced enhanced by her dining room’s spectacular view out over the Tai Tam coast. Southern Mexico was sensational so I’m looking forward to Amelia’s next culinary destination: Chiang Mai
