La Cantine @ Asia Square
So it seems that celebrity chef Bruno Menard is so in love with Singapore, that he has opened not one, but 2 different restaurants in Singapore within a year. And the second and latest one is La Cantine, a higher-end restaurant serving some unique items on their menu.
Bold interior design with lots of quirky elements
Ordered a Viognier from Rhone Valley (S$139 for one bottle). Very floral. Slightly sweet.
The design of the menu and it's a really heavy menu.
Cevennes Onion soup (S$24) on "Foie Gras Royale". Truffle scented Chantilly. The depression on the bowl is for your to place your soup spoon.
La Tomate Farcie (S$14). Momotaro tomato filled with zucchini chutney, olive oil, yuzu-kosho tarragon sorbet, Parmesan cheese and arugula
Here they serve iced water to all diners.
One of our favourite fish - Steamed cod fish (S$30). Vegetable "noge" and olive oil emulsion, parsnip and salmon roe. It has a lot of special ingredients that made the dish delicious.
La Bavette. Beef flank (S$42) with Caramelized onion, Mushroom, "Royan" Ravioli Gratin and "&Made" BBQ sauce. Those who prefer a tender cut will not want to order the flank, which is a bit too chewey.
Love their Cheese ravioli : "Royan" Ravioli Gratin, which came with the beef flank.
For desserts, we had the Homemade vanilla ice-cream dulce de leche and almond tuile (S$10)
And also the Traditional baba au rhum, vanilla whipped cream and shot of dark rum (S$14). Reminded us of the one at Beige by Alain Ducasse in Tokyo (with Brandy and Armagnac though)
Worth a visit here for their unique dishes which can't be found in other restaurants.
