Au Petit Salut @ Harding Road

Au Petit Salut is quite an institution in Singapore. It has been around for years, and its current location in Dempsey has attracted quite a group of loyal diners.

We had their special Passion Fruit Cocktail (S$12 per glass)

The bread rolls were fantastic. It was warm and full of the "freshly baked" flavours. They were also very generous in refilling our bread basket.

As it is located in Dempsey, the whole surrounding is very laid back, just like in the countryside.

First up was the starter of Baked Burgundy snails, bone marrow, garlic and parsley butter. A bit too salty, but the saltiness was covered by the fragrance of the garlic.

We selected a special main for our set lunch. Artic Char fish, crushed violet potatoes, bacon and horseradish (add S$12). The fish was tender and juicy.

French duck leg confit, nashi pear, butternut pumpkin and vanilla purée and Verjuice (add S$12). Duck confit was good, however the skin was not crispy enough.
