Delicious French Haute Cuisine But Pass The Bread Please

Back in 2009, we were contemplating between dining at Joël Robuchon (currently the chef with the most Michelin stars to his name - 25 stars) or Guy Savoy in Paris and ended up choosing the latter. 6 years on, we finally stepped foot into Joël Robuchon's first foray into Singapore, the eponymous Joël Robuchon Restaurant (opened in April 2011), for lunch. Gosh, what a long time coming.

If you enter by the main entrance, turning right after the door will bring you to Joël Robuchon Restaurant (left brings you to L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon, the more casual outfit). The main dining area strikes one as posh and sombre, with a beautiful chandelier as the centerpiece. The adjourning indoor winter garden strikes a stark contrast with a classy yet cheery appeal, sporting a glass roof to allow plenty of natural light in.

There is a smart elegant dress code but I guess it's not strictly enforced (I spotted some guys wearing t shirts and shorts).

Amuse Bouche - A calamansi jelly flavoured with vanilla, topped with anisette cream; a little too tart for my liking.

Complimentary Homemade Bread - All the bread is homemade and pretty good in my humble opinion, especially the viennoiserie; buttery yet light rolls that reminded me of croissant sans the flakiness. The baguette came across as crusty and went very well with the smooth butter. We were so enamoured with the bread that we jumped at the chance for a second helping. And thankfully we did.

Le King Crabe - Seasoned king crab meat, avocado and crunchy vegetables on tomato coulis. A very well thought out dish with the avocado providing a nice smoothness to the crunchy vegetables and the lightly tart tomato coulis and green apple cubes playing counterpoint to the delightful crustacean sweetness of the king crab. Excellent!

Le Thé de Crevette - "Botan" shrimp in fresh coriander and turmeric infusion. I'm usually adverse to turmeric (or any plant in the ginger family for that matter) but this soup was surprisingly light, mildly sweet yet spicy at the same time and accentuated the sweetness of the crunchy botan shrimp chunks.

La Noix de Saint-Jacques - Pan-fried Hokkaido scallop with spelt risotto and coral emulsion. Undoubtedly the pièce de résistance of the afternoon; a lightly spicy, savoury, creamy sauce base coupled with al dente spelt and a huge, perfectly cooked scallop that was oh so sweet. A pity portion sizes were oh so small.

Very Disappointed

Nothing outstanding or wow, dishes were too oriental and taste was repetitive, mains were a huge disappointment where the black pepper was over powering the lamb taste, not fine-dining quality at all, the only redeeming factor was the service.

Interior - This restaurant had very nice interior and I love the ambience - perfect for couples who were dating or to celebrate important occasions with your loved ones. The black tables, chandelier, and dark-colored wallpapers were so posh and elegant. 

Food - I had the degustation menu which I thought truly worth the price. Every piece of dishes was like a piece of art, very well put together (see picture). Not only they looked good but they also tasted exceptionally good. I loved the bread trolley and was impressed with so many types of bread they served (I am a bread lover.) I would strongly recommend the steak with foie gras, the steak was cooked just right (perfect) and the combination with foie gras was truly amazing and unforgettable (see picture).

Service - The service staffs were polite and attentive especially since the restaurant was opened by the Michelin Star Chef Robuchon. I was there to celebrate my friend's birthday and they even presented us a birthday cake and also gave each of us one box of macaroons to take home. I would say that was a very nice and generous gesture which makes diners want to come back because we felt like a valued customer. They also gave us free parking coupon - as the parking at RWS was really expensive.

PS: The macaroons were really nice too, very fresh.
