A spicy new menu blending contrasting culinary techniques with unique flavours and textures has become the perfect mix at the new Fusion Restaurant at L’Horizon Beach Hotel & Spa.
The stylish restaurant at the AA Four Red Star beachside hotel in St Brelade trialled the ‘Fusion’ concept during the spring and it proved to be such a hit amongst its discerning diners that it is has now become a permanent fixture.
Executive Head Chef Andrew Soddy created the menu which draws on his extensive travels, to create a distinctive mix of modern British cuisine with subtle Asian influences.
The menu features starters that include pan seared scallops with coconut braised red lentils – a firm favourite according to initial feedback; butternut squash and lentil dhal soup served with a soft poached egg and shredded naan bread crisp.
Spices feature in the mains, from turmeric and cumin coated sea bass fillet served with Jersey potato chaat masala and fennel ceviche to sticky glazed chilli pork belly; pan roasted pork fillet, butternut squash, soya glazed bok choy with toasted sesame seeds.
Meanwhile there’s a fusion of new cocktails to choose from including a refreshing Blueberry and Ginger Mojito made from Bacardi, muddled blueberries, fresh ginger, lime juice and soda water.
Commenting on the menu, Shaun McGachan, Hotel Manager said: “We’re delighted with the feedback from the ‘Fusion’ pop-up experience. Andrew has created a fabulous feast with six starters, six mains and six desserts and I’m sure our diners will be excited that ‘Fusion’ has become a firm fixture at the hotel.”
‘Fusion’ is open Tuesday to Saturday from 6.30pm until 9pm.
