this is a hidden gem.
under the point block #7 at Tanjong Pagar Road, you wouldn't expect to find a cafe like this here.
we went there for our Father's Day Dinner and this cafe didn't disappoint!
At first look, it may not seem anything like a french cafe but it's quirky cos despite advertising heavily to have french cuisine, they do have some local offerings too! For one, their coffee is called Changi and Temasek, a specially concocted brew and it is a really fragrant and tasty cuppa! For only $1++, it's definitely worth it!
Their dinner set had various offers - ala carte, a 3 course (~$38) and a 4 course (~$48). For a top up of $7, you could get wine to go along with your meal.
For starters, we had a very delicious mushroom soup along with some buns. Though the buns were hot, the tasty soup more than made up for it.
we settled for a few different main courses and what stood out was the duck leg confit (excellently done!) and the salmon. If you're into lamb, you could also try out the lamb shank which i had, and it was beautifully cos the meat wasn't tough, melting in your mouth and the scent of lamb wasn't too strong. it also came with a mash potato which really tasted very good.
For dessert, a specialty of theirs is the warm lava cake with chocolate and lavender sauce! the lavender sauce has a really unique taste and it's worth trying it if you're getting the set meal.
All in all, i really enjoyed my dinner there and it's a nice after work place to explore.
