Summerlicious Review - 1055
Walked in to 1055 last night and was surprised at their Summerlicious Menu. Having got used to a choice of salmon or chicken in many places, 1055 really ups the ante. Mains are Duck, Ribs, Sole or Jerk Chicken. Portions were huge and the meat very tender. I thought the sauce on the Duck and Ribs was very similar, but each dish came with different vegetables (again unlike many restaurants who have the same veg on every plate) and each was a selection of three or 4 different veggies.
The appetizers were even more tasty. Best was the smoked salmon with jicama on a rosti potato base. But the squid were also pretty good and again a huge portion (the appetizer portions here were as large as some mains at other places). And the bread basket was also excellent, featuring several different breads, including chapati.
Service was rushed presumably an attempt to increase turnover but, all in all, a bargain.
