The menu showcases a fusion of traditional fare with a modern twist, meticulously crafted using the freshest ingredients available.

One of the standout dishes on the menu is the signature Amadai with Crispy Skin, Romanesco, and Beurre Meuniere. Amadai, also known as tilefish, is prepared using the meticulous oil bath method, resulting in an impeccably crispy skin that enhances the overall dining experience. This technique elevates the texture and flavour of the fish, creating a harmonious blend of tenderness and crunch in every delectable bite.

Complementing the Amadai is the visually stunning Romanesco, a cruciferous vegetable with a delicate taste that adds a delightful contrast to the rich flavours of the fish. The dish is further elevated with the addition of Beurre Meuniere, a classic French brown butter sauce infused with subtle hints of lemon and herbs, enhancing the natural flavours of the dish and creating a truly memorable culinary journey. This exquisite dish exemplifies Seed by Whitegrass’ commitment to using the finest ingredients and innovative cooking techniques to craft an extraordinary dining experience.
