Salmon Nights at Corniche is their new Friday night salmon bonanza using high quality Norwegian salmon. Imagine a whole buffet spread that is composed almost wholly of salmon dishes from appetizers to main dishes, you’ll have a plethora of choices to fulfill your salmon cravings. Since my trip to Canada, I have been craving for salmon, non stop, so this was the perfect antidote.
I was so enamored by the fresh salmon sashimi and sushi, I forgot to snap a picture of them, instead snapping them straight to my mouth. The big revelation was that plate of sliced salmon called Sake Jime, which was recommended to me by the chef at the Japanese station. He said they marinate the raw salmon in lemon and a little togarashi spice. One bite and I forgot all about the sashimi, this one takes it to a whole different planet.
The other dish I busied my self with was the Salmon Gravlax with Vodka and Dill. It’s the western version of the Sake Jime. I had a bit of east and west thing going on in my plate, each dish covering half my plate.
The Salmon Kinilaw was a different take on the Filipino classic, with acidity from the vinegar at a minimum, just enough to give it flavor.
The Salmon and Lobster soup tasted like a bisque to me, not bad but I found it lacking a certain something. I’d still prefer the pure crustacean bisque for stronger umami flavor.
I found a curious looking machine and upon further examination, found out it was a Sous vide machine. Corniche is the only restaurant that has a live sous vide station in its buffet.
