oh man.. that doesn't sound very impressive, does it? Nevermind.. it's baby steps! Trying to increase my frequency of blogging and that would also mean..
+ more baking
+ more food reviews
less time for exercise
caloric input > energy spent
You get the idea.
Still.. I will try!
Most recent pig-out happened at the suddenly-crowded, got-acquired-by-Capitaland, BugisJunction-linked mall, Bugis+.
Poulet - a French casual dining chain
Located at Bugis+, #04-12
Opened Daily 10am to 10pm
Not to be confused with the common (mis)conception that french food is always expensive and small-portioned, Poulet offers hearty and delicious french cuisine at very affordable pricing. Each of our dishes were smackingly good and even with the large portions, we licked every single plate clean, surely leaving the cleaning of crockery an easy job!
|Poulet Roti (Half Portion $15.80, Full Portion $28.80)|
Poulet basically means Chicken, and therefore the signature dish is also their namesake - Poulet Roti. Brined for a full day then slow-roasted in the rotisserie, it is served with a mushroom chardonnay sauce that added a light creaminess to the tenderness of the meat. Succulent mushrooms accompanied the dish; I just wished there were more baby spinach or couple bread rolls that I can soak in the yummy sauce.
|Iberico Pork Belly $15.80|
|Oxtail de Bourguignon $15.80|
|French Onion Soup $5.80|
|Salad de Paris $9.80|
The salad is a mix of garden greens, cranberries, roasted pine nuts, olives and supposedly avocado though I didn't see any, could be buried amongst the greens. It's not too bad, but forgettable, only necessary if you need some vegetables.
now... for the DESSERTS.
|Banana Bread Pudding $6.80|
|Caramelised Apple in Puffy Tart $7.80|
You would think that 3 of us would be stuffed to the max by now... and indeed we are. We had the croissants take-away for brekkie the next day! It's not on the menu but you can ask for them, to be served plain, $2 each. The menu has 2 dishes with croissant, chicken with fig or egg mayo. We saw many tables ordering those for sharing but we were simply too full.
Overall, great dishes with good service. The staff comes around frequently and the chef mingles with the guests alot. This is almost a very family-styled bistro type of feel. Be prepared to queue though or go very early. They do not take reservations currently, you can stand in queue and drool first.
