I’m counting down the 100 best dishes I tasted in 2016…
You wouldn’t expect what looks like a giant charred bone-in rib eye steak to walk through the dining room of vegetarian-focused Nix. It’s actually not a steak but a game-changing dessert cut to resemble a steak. A quartered tandoor-roasted pineapple is crisped and brushed with a tangy tamarind glaze, vegan whipped cream (made from chickpeas), and toasted macadamia nuts. It’s absolutely amazing – and needs to be ordered in advance.
