It Just Has To Be Delicious

Citron Modern Asian Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

Citron is in a nice location just off Kedron Park Road, elevated with balcony seats as well as tables inside. The wine list is just right and we had a glass of sauvignon blanc to start.

Everything on the menu sounded appetising, so it was difficult to choose a dish – this is always a good sign.

For the starter we chose a small plate of mixed hors d’oeuvres consisting of a betel leaf with sandcrab, coconut, chilli and coriander, a mahor (minced prawn and pork with peanuts on pineapple) and a heavenly beef bite with nahm jim jaew. All were delicious and set the scene for a very nice meal.

For main my companion chose the caramelised beef cheek with flavours of pho, pickled bean sprouts, vietnamese herbs, fresh rice noodles and lemon. This was tender but the caramel was a bit thick and sticky in the mouth.

I chose the seared scallops, crisp pork belly, asian mushroom salad & sesame soy dressing – a very nice plate of food, and all the flavours matched nicely. The scallops were cooked perfectly.

For dessert I chose the yuzu curd, crunchy cinnamon filo, raspberry ripple meringue and candied ginger – a nice array of flavours but I am not sure that they were flavours which went well together. The ginger was quite hot and although I love ginger, I can imagine that it would be too overpowering for some diners.

My companion chose the roast banana pudding, salted peanut ice cream and palm sugar caramel. This was delicious and every flavour had a place on the plate. The banana in the pudding was tasty without being too sweet, the salt in the ice cream was perfect and the caramel was just right.

So would we go back to Citron ? I think yes because I would like to try other items on the menu. however I think it is a bit overpriced. The food is beautifully presented, but the dishes are probably overpriced by around 15% – to charge the prices that Citron charge, every dish and flavour needs to be perfect.
