Lovely Pre-Christmas Dinner

Having been to Balzac Bar and Brasserie before, enjoying the food, ambience and stumbling upon their Christmas menu, it was not hard to see why this was the chosen venue for dinner on the last night of the Bestie's visit in Singapore.

It was quiet that evening, close to Christmas. They loved the faux grass-walls near the entrance of the restaurant because it was made to feel / look like an outdoors seating area. The usual bread basket was served, with butter and another un-decipherable dip.

For mains, both the men (The Bestie's Hubby and The Beau) had the Beef Cheeks a la Cuillere (SGD$36.00) - 48 hours braised wagyu beef cheeks, bordelaise sauce and mashed potato. The beef cheeks were so tender they nearly wobbled in their form, yes, melt-in-your-mouth tender! The flavor was divine as well - softly saccharine as how red meat goes, with a slight tinge of savoury (the Bordelaise sauce).

I had the Cod Fish Et Bacon (SGD$34.00) - slow cooked black cod with ragout of white beans and French bacon. The black cod was luscious and buttery-smooth the way I love it, and the bacon was crumbly the way I love it too, hence score two points for this dish. The ragout was rather unique, and had a chewy flavor cooked in slightly-sticky sauce, a good accompaniment to the bacon and cod.

Very good lobster bisque to eat w the soft house bread. Duck leg confit was worth the try, served with thick flavorful mashed potato. Must try the escargots & the pan fried foie gras. Angus rib-eyes steak was not the best although acceptable. Friendly staff, but the car park was difficult to locate. Will return & will try their dessert as we were too full.

To begin with, our reservation, which was booked through hungrygowhere.com was neither confirmed nor valid. But the restaurant was empty so we got a table anyway. We were surprised that prices had gone up by 20% and that could explain why the place was quiet. Food was excellent though overpriced and service was commendable despite the lackthereof.  The wine list however, was nothing short of pathetic, especially for a French brasserie - they ran out of champagne, most wine were not available and the wine that they will serve by the glass, they would not sell by the bottle even though it's on the menu. Very disappointing and unlikely to return. Judging by the state of the brasserie, others probably have the same view.
