when i found out that the French Kitchen at Central Mall closed down, i was so devastated! okay i’ve never tried it before, but i’ve heard that it was really good! luckily the good news is that the chef has moved to another restaurant, Balzac Brasserie in the newly renovated Rendezvous Grand food floor
so glad that i still get to try his cooking after all!

we decided to try something different this time instead of ordering the typical french onion soup etc. we ordered the charcuterie platter ($22) which was an assortment of various cured meats such as hand carved vintage saucisson sec, parma ham, smoked duck breast, rillittes de canard and salami served on a beautiful stone platter. i loved the bread speckled with nuts that came together on the platter. it provided a nice contrast that muted the saltiness of the meat.

the beef cheeks a la cuillere ($26) was deliciously soft – wagyu beef cheek braised for 48hours, the meat was so tender it practically melted in our mouth. and the taste was au naturale, with the flavours of the beef erupting in our mouths with every bite. we absolutely LOVED the buttery creamy mashed potato that came with it as well!

the roasted scallops ($25) were plump, juicy and seasoned with garlic and parsley, made for a tasty dish. and i loved the fat tomatoes that came with it ;)

i thoroughly (and very surprisingly) enjoyed the duck confit ($26)! somehow i havent had very good experiences with duck confit, but this was REALLY GOOD! it has changed my mindset about this popular french dish completely. barely a hint of oiliness, the skin was crisp, while the duck meat was tender, juicy, and oh-so-flavourful. definitely a must-try


we decided to try this super interesting dessert – the riz au lait ($9) was a traditional rice pudding that tasted really like bubor hitam!!! haha i think it was cos of the sweet glutinous rice texture. this was a really SWEET dish to satisfy any sweet tooth, and it came with a caramel sauce that just added on even more! haha. i liked the roasted pistachios that gave it some crunch as well
it was a pretty good! until….

…the valrhona chocolate moelleux ($12) arrived. and we all abandoned the poor rice pudding to attack this. it was soooo awesome!!!! a poufy souffle-like cover encasing a moist interior with warm molten gooey chocolate. we were all in seventh heaven after one mouth. paired with the cold tahitian vanilla ice cream, this was the PERFECT way to end the meal
