Shaped like a magnificent three-storey, stately ship that is permanently docked, Boathouse Fullerton looks interesting from the outside and offers diners great views from the inside as well.
Interior-wise, this place offers a quaint and intimate ambience in a beautiful setting of rich browns and elegant chandeliers. Besides the sophisticated decor that gives diners a sense of happiness, the service crew provided rather immaculate service as well. This place prides itself on bringing French dining to a new height.
For lunch, they only have set meals. We chose the three-course sets.
Appetizer was the Crabe - marinated blue crab, smoked tomato coulis and crispy herb tuile. The blue crab paste was very sumptuous, redolent of the sweetness of fresh crab. Eaten with the cheese-like crispy triangles of tuile, this appetiser leaves one longing for more.
Our Main Course was the Roeuf - rib eye, fine mashed potato, heirloom carrots and bordelaise sauce. The beef was rather tender (we asked for medium rare) and slightly chewy, juicy. The mashed potato was so fine and tasty we thought it was some kind of cream initially.
Finally, time for Desserts. We shared the L'Orange - orange and chocolate meringue rock, crumbles and orange granite. As meringue goes, the dessert crumbled into the mouth and dissolved easily, but it was a little too sweet, in my opinion. While the orange flavor was quite promiment, I thought that the white chocolate somewhat obliterated the orange's citrus flavor; I prefer orange desserts made with dark chocolate as the contrast is better.
