Salted Corn Flan, Caramel Ice Cream, Vanilla Milk Foam @ Root
A typically complex dish from the hand of Chef Philip Lopez, this is not made to puzzle you with its unique ensemble of ingredients, but to use each ingredient to heighten the flavors of the others. Homemade “cracker jacks” complete the sensation with a fascinating mouthfeel and flavors that come from other ingredients as well.
