Limited time lamb menu and beef short rib at Huber's Bistro

Huber's Bistro, Dempsey

We were at Huber's for their lamb menu - a limited time menu that would have been over by the time this post first basks in the light of day. Speaking of light - if one could move faster than light, one would theoretically be able to travel back in time and see what we've had here before. (十一十二十三十四十五) No? 😬

Huber's Bistro, cheese soup

Finally tried their cheese soup. Creamy, salty and cheesy...just like I imagined and hoped. Gotta come back for more of these next time.

Huber's Bistro, pumpkin potato soup coconut cream, lamb filet dried mango parma ham, rosemary croutons

From their lamb menu was a pumpkin and potato soup with coconut cream. The orange hued soup had a texture like pureed potato and the flavour of pumpkin. Where's the lamb you might wonder? Those rolls that look like sausages in the middle - they were lamb filet with dried mangoes wrapped in prosciutto di Parma. Nice.

Huber's Bistro, butterflied leg of lamb

The other item we had from the lamb menu was their roasted butterflied leg of lamb that's been marinated with some anchovy paste. Delicious savoury saltiness that was tempered with sweetness from that red wine jus. Like.

Huber's Bistro, beef short rib

Finally also tried their braised beef short rib. Looked a little smaller than what I remember seeing on other table in the past. Not bad. Creamy mash was deliciously buttery.

Huber's Bistro, lamb cutlet ratatouille

Dessert was their lamb cutlets from the lamb menu. Also with the red wine jus. These seemed to be meatier than what I remember of their lamb. Which was a good thing in case anyone was wondering. Great salting on the meat, especially on the caramelized fat that was so punchy with its natural aroma.

One thing I found myself liking was also their ratatouille which was served with both the leg of lamb and those cutlets. Have never been big on those but I kinda like the ones they do here. Maybe the red wine jus and rendered lamb fat had something to do with that.

Huber's Bistro, coffee
