The new restaurant The Tastings Room at Marina Squares seek to make food and beverage pairing a painless experience with suggestions within the menu. Every food item listed has 3 or 4 recommended wines to go along, which also saves any embarrassment from ordering ‘wrongly’. The main concept behind such pairings is that the ‘marriage’ of food and wine will get both their flavours enhanced and make the entire dining experience more enjoyable.
The Tastings Room recommended a lighter Shiraz or Riesling to go along with duck meat. Served with smooth potato mash, grilled pear and tangy orange sauce, the confit of french duck leg ($22.90) is so tender and soft that the meat comes off the bones very easily.
