Ô Comptoir | Not Amazing But Kind Of Pleasing

A galette? What’s that, you might ask? Honestly, before I accidentally stumbled across a creperie in Belgium that served this, I had no idea as well. The galette is a type of French crusty cake, but the one more commonly seen in restaurants and such is the Breton galette, a buckwheat flour open faced pancake with savoury fillings. Apparently crêpes refer to the sweet ones … Continue reading Ô Comptoir | Not Amazing But Kind Of Pleasing

Absinthe Restaurant Français, Boat Quay

The brainchild of four friends from Europe, Absinthe is a popular French restaurant which has been in Singapore for already around five years or so. Before moving to its new home along the bright, lively streets of Boat Quay, it first blossomed in the restaurant enclave of Bukit Pasoh, along with the now long standing Oso Ristorante. Before visiting it for dinner a few months ago to celebrate an … Continue reading Absinthe Restaurant Français, Boat Quay

Bistro Du Vin, Zion Road

Bistro Du Vin is a restaurant that I have been meaning to try for the longest time. During restaurant week earlier this year, almost made reservations for lunch but these fell through due to a busy week. I am happy to say that I finally visited this lovely French restaurant for lunch this month with delightful company and had a most wonderful time there. The … Continue reading Bistro Du Vin, Zion Road

La Maison Fatien, Duxton Road

This dimly lit, cosy little French restaurant is one of the newer additions to the charming Duxton area. Once dotted with somewhat dodgy looking pubs and KTVs, this area is increasingly seeing more chill out cafes and nice restaurants mushrooming along its narrow lanes and cobblestone streets. Cafes like Group Therapy, The Plain, and The Pigeonhole (along Craig Road), and restaurants like L’Entrecote, Pasta Brava, BROTH, … Continue reading La Maison Fatien, Duxton Road

I simply can’t resist the strong, rich taste of well seared foie gras and flavourful juicy medium rare steaks. So it’s no surprise that I’ve visited this quaint French restaurant, Le Bon Marche, twice. The first time for a birthday celebration, where I … Continue reading Le Bon Marche, Bukit Timah

Les Bouchons Rive Gauche, Robertson Quay

Arguably one of the best steaks I have had in Singapore So I went to Les Bouchons about 2 months back, after wanting to sample their steak for the longest time. Have heard lots of good (and bad) things about the place, but went there with an open mind. And man, the steak is GOOD. Juicy, succulent and flavourful, it certainly did not disappoint – … Continue reading Les Bouchons Rive Gauche, Robertson Quay

Bistro Petit Salut, Chip Bee Gardens

Bistro Petit Salut, c’est superb! To celebrate my bf’s birthday, I decided to take him to Bistro Petit Salut, a cosy little French restaurant at the Chip Bee stretch behind Holland Village. The sister (or poorer cousin?) of the classier (and more expensive) Au Petit Salut, it was surprisingly good, with prompt, polite and friendly service, and delicious, reasonably-priced food. The starters were a lobster … Continue reading Bistro Petit Salut, Chip Bee Gardens

Le Belvédère, Annecy

A nice quiet restaurant with a Michelin star in a small town in the Rhone-Alps region of France, Le Belvédère is truly a gem – fabulous food at reasonable prices, a cosy ambience perfect for a romantic date or just a nice, long dinner with friends, and with impeccable service. Fantastic view, too. Possibly the best restaurant I have ever been to. And also in … Continue reading Le Belvédère, Annecy
