That is to say, it’s not just open for breakfast, also thursday to saturday its doors are open for dinner, starting from 5pm until 10pm at night.

After that, I have tried three dishes here. Hence, in my first time I got the Confit Duck Leg with Sweet Potato Waffle and for sure a latte. So then, and my second visit at the breakfast restaurant, I got the Nduja on toast and the Grilled Snapper brioche sandwich, and the rest is story.
Now let’s go to the details with Samurai Gourmet
Confit Duck Leg with Sweet Potato Waffle
In fact, I love duck and knowing that with sweet and citrus goes amazing well. Therefore, when I saw it on the menu with ingredients such as potato waffle, blackberry and sherry sauce. Above all, I had to ordered, to realize how delicious it is. In short, it was so good, with the perfect balance of duck’s fatty flavors plus the sweetness of potato waffle and citrus sauce.
Nduja on toast
Secondly, the other dish that I tried at Higher Ground was the Nduja on toast with salsa verde, fried egg, salted ricotta and shallots. Not to mention that food without chili on my diet, is almost not allowed. In other words, I love spicy food. So, the Nduja gave me, all what I needed it this toast plus the ingredients beside it. As a result, a spicy delicious toasties.
Grilled Snapper Brioche Sandwich
Thirdly, I got the grilled snapper because is one of my favorite fish. Besides, adding the jalapenos slaw and yuzu mayo something beautiful has to come. But it was bit less of flavors compared to other two dishes before. On the other hand , the sandwich plays its roll, due to, the fish is slightly flat in flavors. In short, the grilled snapper is recommended for those seafood lovers.
