Not sure what you would classify this as: it has no fixed cuisine. Pretty much traversed the world in this meal. But, it was alllll awesome!
Started off with Tasmanian Oysters, followed by Croquettes-french contingent (cheese and a chilli kick?). Followed by Seared tuna with little fried bits on it (don't actually know what they were) but this would have been the "Japanese" bit. Then pork bellly in a Korean style (Kim Chi flavour?) the coleslaw side was the best I ever tasted. Vietnam was represented by an amazing fresh roll with deep fried oysters in it with shreds of lettuce-quite sublime. For dessert, was a Thai style marshmellow-YUMMMMMM! And an all-American Ice-cream sandwich-peanut butter and raspberry jelly flavoured. I have an affection for ice-cream sandwiches in nice restaurants because I always think it's a rather ironic thing that a serious restaurant serves one up gourmet-style. Such audacity! Oddly, for an ice-cream sandwich, it was made with a fresh crumbly short-bread. Something a bit heavier and harder than what one would generally expect. Then again, most of the time they come out of a cheap 2-dollar foil wrapper and the biscuit is by then somewhat soft.

Service, charming and very attentive.
The folks at GiGiBaBa (ie. the actual chefs and staff!!) were having a quick drink at the bar for like 10 minutes (a brief respite?!) before taking off. Nice to see camaderie among colleagues in the food world!
