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.
We ordered 2 special set lunch (S$36+ per person)
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.
The next appetizer was the Flaked smoked haddock, beetroot, Hibiscus purée and Ko Giku flowers
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.
Dessert was the Soya Cheesecake, vanilla crumble and Jasmine sorbet
and another off-menu item: Raspberry and lychee sabayon with Rose sorbet (add S$4)
Ended our beautiful lunch with coffee and tea.
