Heartwood Provisions

On a Sunday night, we celebrated a girlfriend’s birthday at the chef’s table in Heartwood Provisions, to experience first hand, their chef’s tasting menu.

A view of the kitchen

It was a quiet night, and it made this already big restaurant seemed even more cavernous.

My friend really loved one of their unique cocktail drinks made with whiskey and a slice of prosciutto in it, she said it was one of the best cocktail she had for a while.

The meal started off with the ends of some nice, fatty, cured ham.

Followed by their famous Wagyu beef jerky, and they were excellent!

L: Wagyu beef jerky, R: prosciutto, oysters and anchovies

Nicely salted, sweet soy, garlicky flavor in semi-dry beef, reminded me of the beef jerky we used to get at home in Hong Kong.

Second plate was a small appetizers mixer with sweet, crunchy oysters, which was a contrast with the chewy fatty ham; and anchovies that were pickled and lean.

Beet salad was a mix of fresh, sweet beets, with gingery pickled beets.

With a buttery, whipped Chevre, a little gamey, a little spice and sweetness, this dish was a burst of flavors.

There was pistachio in it, and something minty as well — it was like a little treasure pot, there was more when you kept digging!

Top: beet salad, Bottom: tomato salad

Sweet heirloom tomato salad was served with Burrata cheese, paired classically with balsamic vinegar, some microgreens and some small fried nuts for texture and nutty flavor, very tasty.

We did not have room for entrée, and resorted to having a bite of each and taking the rest home.

Although the trout with succotash looked a little messy, it was exceptionally delicious.

Perfectly fried, fresh, tender trout with the bright flavours predominantly of corn and red onions.

The succotash was spicy with smoky ham bits.

Second entrée was beef.

Lean, grass-fed, and full of flavours, it came with crisp, small potatoes, and delightful thin-sliced, pickled mushrooms.

The beef texture was nice, with a light cilantro garlic dressing.

My friend had requested the dessert to be their smoked panna cotta.

We devoured it without taking a picture =(, and it really was quite special.

Smoky creaminess, with a perfect sweetness caramel and nuts, simple elegance but with a smoky twist that elevated an already wonderful dessert.

Paired with toffee ice cream, it was a pot of milky sweet goodness.

We even received some fun cocktails on the house!

The 5-course meal was $140 for 2 people, it was a great find!
