I haven’t been updating my food blog mainly due to laziness. I still do eat out a lot but I don’t want to be bothered with taking photos of what I’m eating. There are and will be exceptions, like this post.
I’ve dined at Madison’s Bistro Moderne several times and although most of their food isn’t spectacular, there is one exception for me and that is their Speck and Goat Cheese Mousse (P550), an appetizer made of goat cheese mousse, truffle scent, apple mustard chutney and walnuts.
As you can see from the photo, it is just 7 pieces of speck which you might think is too expensive for its price. Well you are right but if you want to indulge yourself, I highly recommend you try this. The goat cheese isn’t pungent nor malansa, the speck is bacon-y, and the chutney with walnut gives it a good texture and taste. Paired with good red wine, this appetizer is a real winner.
Unfortunately, you wouldn’t have your fill from just this and I’m sorry to say that I didn’t enjoy Madison’s main course offerings.
