Poulet @ Bugis+
To be honest, we didn't want to come here initially. First, they are opened by Thai Express, which serves rather average Thai food. Second, it is the 1st of a series of chain restaurants selling French food. The words "chain restaurant" didn't exactly equate to "good food" in most cases.
But then, we read a few blogs which gave them the thumbs up. And of course, that the main chef here formerly worked in Les Amis and Au Petit Salut.
Free iced water is served here. The place gets rather noisy during meal time, and feels more like a food court than a restaurant with people walking everywhere. Not a very good place for a date.
French Onion Soup (S$5.80). Find this rather ordinary, and watery too.
Salad de Paris (S$9.80) - I ordered this after reading a magazine's recommendation. Unfortunately, they whole think didn't work really well. Can't really describe why it went wrong, but the 2 of us didn't finish the whole serving.
The Mushroom Soup (S$5.80) was slightly better than the onion soup. We can taste that it was made with lot's of real mushroom.
The stat of this restaurant is the Poulét: The Roast Chicken (S$15.80), which came with their unique chardonnay mushroom sauce. I must admit that the roast chicken was rather good. The breast meat was tender and tasty. However, given a choice, I will choose the roast chicken at The Rotisserie (review coming up soon).
Oxtail de Bourgulgnon (S$15.80) - Can't really find much meat here. Won't recommend it.
Caramelised Apple in Puff (S$7.80) - Something sweet to end our dinner.
