Affordable french food! of course the foodie in me got eggcited! It’s really popular, and they don’t take reservations so be prepared to queue. but it’s totally worth it! Definitely a must-try. I would go back there ten more times just for their angel hair pasta (erm yeah, it’s a French restaurant, but their pasta was the highlight for me! )The awesome angel hair pasta with tiger prawn and lumpfish caviar ($6.90) is what I was raving about!

The awesome angel hair pasta with tiger prawn and lumpfish caviar ($6.90) is what I was raving about! It was cooked in the most interesting manner! The thin strands of angel hair were very unlike the silky version i’m used to – instead they were very al dente, with a firm bite, that was refreshingly delicious! the prawns were cooked really nicely as well. and the caviar OMG. they just explode with a burst of flavour in your mouth! and together with the little green chilis (i think they’re chilis, right? i couldn’t really tell), all the various dimensions were brought together beautifully. i had to keep myself from gobbling the entire thing down because i wanted to savour every bit of it properly.
The duck confit with orange segments and saute shitake ($9.90) was done beautifully as well. i loved how the skin was crispy with just the right amount of fat to make it juicy, while the meat inside was super tender! i wonder how they did it! I’m not really a huge fan of confit, so I wasn’t super crazy over it (unlike the pastaaaa heh) but it was still good! The mushrooms were really juicy and flavourful as well. ohoh! and the mash ^^ nice and buttery. yumms.
The dessert sadly, was a letdown for me but only because i dont like the taste of anything almond-flavoured. Sighhhs. Such a pity! the pistachio panna cotta ($6.90) sounded absolutely delightful. But it was just tainted by the almond taste! > Ddon’t get me wrong, i love almond NUTS, but anything else with the almond flavouring (like almond paste/jelly omg…) is just not my thing. Okay i’m biased But oh well! If you like almond, i’m sure you’ll love this!
Anyway, this place is super awesome. it’s a must try. God forbid even more people crowding up the place, but honestly I dont think it’s gonna make a difference because the queue is so long already! But dont let that deter you, try it! Tell me how the chicken roulade is if you tried it!! That was something else I was interested in. By the way, the portions are slightly smaller than usual, but I quite liked how it let us try a greater variety ;)
