Review: Rice Paper Scissors
This was my birthday "surprise" dinner at another one of Melbourne's modern, fusion Asian restaurants, serving up amazing, reinvented dishes palatable to more taste buds than some of your traditional flavours and ingredients.
|BBQ Lamb Ribs - $12|
These lamb ribs are to die for. That whiskey marinade was so gutsy.
The alcohol burnt off well, leaving no residual bitter taste, but
really nice smokey whiskey flavour. The lamb was also really tender
and just fell off the bone.
|Sticky Pork Belly - $12|
This dish again packs a punch. Succulent pork with crispy skin,
superb glaze, full of flavour. The salad added nice freshness.
|Thai Fried Chicken - $12|
Not the best fried chicken out there, but definitely had great flavours,
The skin was so crispy but unfortunately at the cost of dry meat.
I really enjoyed the mayo dipping sauce, which added moisture
to the meat.
