  • French Cuisine - Je vous aime

    Let's discuss French Food. I am keen to explore French cruisine further. Oh yes, am trying to be more sophiscated Ok, I 'fess up. I am interested in the cute French chefs actually

    So far the only French restaurant I had frequent is Cafe Amigo at Specialist Centre. The escargots is to die for

    Any other suggestion on a good French restaurant? And what are your fave French dishes??

    I've been wanting to try Cafe Amigo but never got around it.

    Salut & Petite Salut is alright. Somehow I was not impressed by the food and the prices are :roll: * though i didn't pay*
    Ambience is excellent of course

    I figure I shall not spend my money trying Au Jardin chain of French restuarants.

      Generally I have not yet developed a 'taste' for French food. I find it a bit too rich for my liking. I think my favourite dish is the bouillabaise (sp?) which is a seafood soup with a tomato base. When eaten with hot garlic bread, it's heavenly...

      If you're looking for cheap French food, try the French Stall at Serangoon Road (I think it's no.72). It's a small and cosy French restaurant in a refurbished kopitiam, run by a Frenchman and his S'porean wife. The food is so-so, not too bad, but I really enjoy the atmosphere - very casual, cosy, good for long chit-chat with friends.

        I like french food too, very yummy! i tried the one at serangoon before, the food is ok considering the price, and yes it is a rather cosy friends for friends. i had duck confit while i was there, it was tasty but my friend's was slightly burnt and very rubbery. the deserts there are decent though, especially a very big chocolatey one, though i've forgotten its name.

        one french restaurant that i really like is l'angelus at club street. tried a lot of dishes and so far they are all good! and the atmosphere there is fantatic too! rather posh, but just so. i definitely felt welcomed and relaxed there. i can't bear the idea of eating escargots, so i tried the seasonal mussels the restaurant imported and it was absolutely yummy!

        the owner also has another restaurant, buchon, further down the road. this one mainly sell steaks and red meat, and every dish comes with all-you-can-eat salad and fries. and the fries are very very very nice! it's also a departure from the pathetically small portions notoriously present in french cuisines.

          I love a good Foie Gras! And buttery garlicky Escargots.

          Great French place I like: Grill on Devonshire. Off Killiney Road.

          Haven't been there in a long time though .. all I eat now are cheap hawker center food.

            Try La Cascade at Robertson Walk. Good food and great atmosphere.

              Hey this one is near to us Is La Cascade next to Sketches?

              Oh yes Stella, I still haven't tried Devonshire on The Grill and this one is so near to my place. Must remind SO to book this place soon

              Baobei, I have heard raves about the Au Jardin chain and I think I will try this one day, may be during one of those special occasion

                Directly opposite to Sketches. Good place if you want to avoid the crowd.

                  Give us reviews on the Au Jardin chain, help us decide if its worth shelling out so much $ for them!

                  Or we shall stick to eating at the French stall along Serangoon.

                    Will do, when I spend less on clothes and finally get to visit the Au Jardin chain

                    How's the French Stall along Serangoon? I have never tried and I am curious about this.

                      Another recommendation of a French restaurant. Try Jeremy's Restaurant & Wine Bar at the new annexe Carlton Hotel. The 4-course set dinner is very reasonably priced. Only $48++. The home-made apple strudel and caramel ice-cream at the end are yummy. ** slurp **

                      ps : No cute French chef in this one. Sorry, Meow.

                        was treated to Au Jardin for my birthday last yr.
                        iirc, there are 2 set dinners, one 8-course and the other 10-course??
                        since my companion chose the 8 course I had to choose the 10-course one. ate till I nearly burst. and the food kept coming!

                        food's good but I wont go back again except maybe for the ambience.

                        edited to add: I think my set alone cost $120.

                          HJ, how come you always have the best gift for b-day huh?

                          Linda, so Jeremy is not cute hmmm..but the price is great for a 4-course set French dinner.

                          I am looking at La Cascade now in fact.

                            Last sat, i went to The French Stall at 787 Upper Serangoon Road. I tried the Salmon set and SO ordered Lamb set. Did a minor change to my menu - soup of the day to escargots. Escargots - they will help you to remove the shells so no worries at all. The salmon was quite fresh. I had creme caramel while SO had vanilla ice-cream. Both taste yummy.

                            And i saw a skinny good looking French (i think?) at the open-concept kitchen.

                              skinny is ok as long as he is cute!

                              Dol, is it near Mustafa? And do you need a reservation?
