My boyfriend booked for us two months in advance. We wanted to go on a Tuesday night, and the earliest they had available was 8:30pm. We arrived right on time, but we had to wait 20 minutes for a table. Normally, this would drive me crazy (why make a reservation then?), but a quick look around the restaurant shows they literally have 40 chairs in the entire place. So we waited, willing the other diners to eat quickly.
My three favorite items were:
1) Pork Belly and Mung Bean Pancake (pictured above). Savory pancake with a splash of pineapple sweetness, the layers of flavors are unexpected and delicious. I wish we had ordered two!
2) Start your meal with the Baked Potato Bing Bread. They had me at ‘bacon.’ This starter is the baked potato version of bread. If you make it to Parachute, you must order the bing bread with bacon and scallion — topped with sour cream butter.
3) For dessert, order the Pavlova. The meringue crust is crispy and melts in your mouth. The coconut cream and blackberry center is delightful with a hint of lime.
Make the jump — make a reservation — and trust Parachute to deliver your taste buds safely to the ground.
