Jaan, finally

Finally, I got the chance to eat at Jaan. The day that we were due to fly off to Kyoto, E and I went there for lunch. The view is amazing, and the whole decor and feel of the restaurant oddly reminiscent of Le Normandie in Bangkok (minus the dessert trolley). We had the winter set lunch at $38 per pax:
(A) Spicy Caramelized Sashimi Salmon with Passionfruit of pearl tapioca and Green Apple Salad
(A) Tiger Prawn Capellini a la Provencal with Parma ham and Parmesan Cheese
(M) Pan-fried Red Snapper with braised Lemongrass parsnip in Vermouth sauce
(M) Braised Wagyu Beef Cheeks with Mousselline potato, Watermelon, Pear and Apple Herbs Salad, Pomegranate Jus
(D) Fruit Salad of Redberries with Passionfruit Sorbet
(D) Yuzu Parfait with Gianduja Ganache, Lingonberry compote, Pomegranate Jus
I liked Jaan very much. The food is very good and the price a real attraction for the quality and wonderful view. However, I think the service can be improved, it was a bit rough around the edges which I thought rather strange for a fine-dining restaurant.
