When Peter Tempelhoff, Ashley Moss and Jennifer Hugé put their heads together and launched Fyn (Afrikaans “Fine”, as in, fine dining) they did so with one objective in mind, to create a stellar feast for the senses and back it with fluid service and a highly knowledgeable floor staff.
They really do tick all the boxes, visually stunning, impeccably delicious and just the right amount of attentiveness for a great experience.
The menu has a distinctively eastern slant with French style table service, it is essentially an extensive tasting menu.
Starters include Daikon maki, fresh, braised, 3 year pickled, salted cherry blossom and smoked mayonnaise. Crispy chewy rice, aged soy sauce, wasabi furikake, white fish and dashi aioli, prawn samosas and spiced chicken.
Amongst the mains you will find delights such as Scallop and egg custard with braised kelp. Also, quail, glazed eel, parsnip, tea aged pear and oyster mushrooms.
For dessert you should try the Madagascan chocolate, salted Japanese plum with fennel, it’s out of this world!
