  • Maison De Poupee

    I visited this restaurant few weeks ago...



    Located at Armenian street. Its a Bistro and Boutique concept.

    This is the interior of the place.


    They have a side which is the boutique...



    and the other side which is the bistro....


    According to the owner, they have different kinda fondues there. Tiramisu, cheese, chocolate, etc. that just got me SO interested. Most importantly, they're reasonably priced! Only about $14+ per pot. Swiss Culture's one is abt $30+ or $40+ per pot? But also gotta note that for Swiss Culture the pot is much bigger you can have dippers like beef cubes and sausages aside from bread.

    The first pot of fondue that arrived was the cheese fondue....


    Each pot of fondue comes with 8 small dishes of dippers. In our case she gave us 7 dishes of bread cubes and 1 dish of cherry tomatoes. It was YUMMY!! very nice!! much cheaper den Swiss Culture for sure.

    den came the chocolate one..


    The dippers for the chocolate fondue includes strawberry, peach, fruits cocktails and marshmallows. The chocolate was too watery and not hot enough. Overall i wouldnt say its nice.

    Sadly they were out of the tiramisu one.

    Overall i recommend the cheese fondue!

          nope. its beside the big MPH ***'s very near to the former National Library.

          Yes, i can't wait to try their tiramisu and Japanese curry cheese fondue. Wonder how it will taste. The tiramisu and Japanese curry cheese fondue, according to the owner, must be ordered in advance.

                          Went down today with Princess_Lea, Yokie and Cheezecake. Cheezecake ordered their set meal which consisted of soup of the day, grilled fish and ice cream. The rest of us were pretty full so we only shared the fondues.



                          Didn't manage to take a pic of the ice cream coz my fone hanged for awhile and Cheezecake happily finished her ice cream. haha...

                          The soup wasnt very good...



                          I had a mouthful and Cheezecake complained abt the clumps in the soup which were probably a result of insufficient stirring.

                          But the grilled fish was very nice! Very tasty. The sauce went very well with it.

                          Lea and myself ordered drinks... Lea ordered iced honey lemon. I ordered Rambutan Freeze. It was quite nice. I quite like it. Not too sweet.




                          Of coz, we ordered fondue as well. We ordered the chocolate fondue, tiramisu fondue and cheese fondue.




                          The chocolate fondue is much much better den my previous visit. Its much thicker and not as watery.

                          The tiramisu fondue was not hot enough even after we asked for it to be reheated. The taste was alright in my view but Cheezecake and Yokie didnt like it at all. Lea found it ok but after Cheezecake and Yokie 'discriminated' the tiramisu fondue, a negative perception of it developed in all of us. haha...

                          The cheese fondue was already hardened as soon as it arrived. We could barely stir it. We asked for it to be changed and the person changed it for us readily.



                          Now this is better but it did still harden much faster than our previous visit so we had to really rush through to finish the fondue before it hardens. But it was still very tasty. This is the first time Lea, Yokie and Cheezecake were trying fondues and im glad they like it.

                          For the dippers....



                          We had marshmallows, almond nuts, bread, M&Ms chocolates, strawberries, bananas, peaches, kiwis. We requested for the M&Ms to be changed to bread because bread was the one that goes well with all the fondues.

                          This is the sticks we used for the fondue. This time we got the strawberry one.



                          and look at how we're enjoying the fondues...



                          Princess Lea.. ok with this review? lol
