I recently visited Lee's for my friend's birthday after not visiting it for over 2 years. The place hasn't changed much except it has expanded to take over its sister restaurant "Madeleines" spot catering to a much larger crowd.
The menu was a mix of Susur Lee's take on Asian Dishes ranging from countries such as China, Singapore and India.
Singaporean Slaw with Tuna Tataki
Lee's rendition of the famed Singaporean and Malaysian Yee Sang. Our slaw consisted of tomatoes, fried taro, Alfalfa Sprouts and a lot more ingredients that were mixed together. It was served with Tuna Tataki.
Garlic Tiger Shrimp
The Tiger Shrimp was properly cooked and had a nice plump texture. It went well with the mildy spicy Tomato Jam. I also enjoyed the Potato Chick Pea Croquette.
Chickpea Sweet Onion Fritter
My favorite dish. The Onion Fritters had a nice crunch and had a very nice flavor from the use of Cardamom and other Indian spices.
Slow Braised Beef
The Slow Braised Beef was so-so. It wasn't as tender as I would have liked and was lacking a depth in flavor that is usually associated with Slow Braised Beef.
Caramelized Cod Fish
Another favorite dish. The Fish had a nice sweet and savory flavor from the Miso Mustard Marinade and was really moist and tender.
Sauteed Jerk Chicken
A little too oily to be eaten alone. The Sauteed Jerk Chicken consisted of tender pieces of boneless chicken meat deep fried and tossed in Susur's Jerk Sauce. It would have been better with Rice.
Chocolate Molten Cake
Condense Milk Pannacotta with Strawberry Ravioli
Apple Tart with Vanilla Ice Cream
We were fortunate to have Susur there that night as he walked around talking with diners about the food. Most of the dishes we had were solid especially their Caramelized Cod Fish, Chick Pea Onion Fritter and Singaporean Slaw.
