Le Bistrot

We have heard raving reviews about this French restaurant Le Bistrot from friends, and Michelle and I longed to try it out for ourselves! In fact it is our first French meal together =D

It’s located at 2 Stadium Walk, right beside the Indoor Stadium. Their menu is fixed for lunch and dinner, and it costs $50 for an appetizer and main, or a main and dessert!

Here’s what we ordered.

Poor Man's Caviar - verrine of eggplant and garlic purée, chicken liver mousse and Pernod crème fraîche, served with chargrilled bread

The appetizer was perhaps the nicest of what we had that day. Their bread was a bit burnt and too hard though.

Crumble à la Joue de Bœuf Wagyu, Pommes Sarladaises - crumble of braised Wagyu beef cheek served with duck fat potatoes and mesclun salad

I loved the beef cheek, it has a lot of the tendon/gelatin tastes and the cheese crumble on top is nice. Actually, I think their duck fat potatoes was probably the nicest thing I had that day. Yes, it was really nice. I had to add $8 for this dish though.

Confit de Cuisses de Canard - duck leg confit with honey-mustard vinaigrette and creamy potato purée

I think this is over-rated. Yes, the portion is big with 2 duck legs but it was not as tender as we expected. The one that Michelle had was exceptionally tough and so difficult to chew through she couldn’t finish it.

Crème Brulée - 2 x Earl Grey, and 1 x amaretto-griottine

We wanted to have the vanilla bean, but they were out of that. Again, this wasn’t very nice and I’m not really a fan of crème brulée in the first place.

Nevertheless, we did like the place itself.

We also got to stroll along the river and took some nice photos!

Happy Monthversary ❤
