The Find

We found happiness from the recipes of The Find. If you are looking to find The Find, it is found nestled in Rochester Mall, in between The Star Vista and Rochester Park. The Find offers Italian-French cuisine at an affordable pocket friendly pricing, and also boasts a great wine selection.

We started off with the Pan Fried Foie Gras with Arugula Salad, drizzled with honey balsamic dressing and served with homemade country bread. The foie gras was seared to perfection, along with the sweet and citrusy salad dressing. The pairing was perfect, we only wished they were a little more generous with the foie gras portion. We also think the nicely seasoned Mushroom Soup with chunky bits of mushrooms within, topped with golden crispy garlic croutons deserves a mention.

As for the mains, we were served an amazing Braised Beef Cheeks with mashed potato, drenched in morel sauce. The beef was sous-vide for 12 hours to the extent the meat was fork-tender; there is no need for a knife - it literally melts in your mouth. The creamy mashed potato and savoury morel sauce also blended in so well with the tender beef cheeks. It might be a game-changer for someone who does not fancy beef.

Another main from the menu which is a must-have is the Lobster Risotto, served with watercress and sundried tomatoes. The lobster was poached to perfection and served de-shelled making it convenient to indulge in. The risotto, a dish of rice cooked with broth and flavored with grated cheese was flavorful with bits of the lobster in it.

A meal is not a meal without sweet desserts. For desserts, we had the Duo Panna Cotta with Honey Lemon Sauce and Pistachio. The panna cotta had two layers - the top layer made out of cocoa and the bottom layer was cream. The pairing was refreshing and we found ourselves enjoying the light and creamy texture from it.

Overall, we feel that Chef Andre had done a really good job with his dishes. He balanced the flavors of the dishes well and chose simple ingredients and executed each dish with so much finesse. I guess we found a (worthy) find, indeed.
