"A fresh breath of old France" is the motto of this unpretentious, comfortable and hearty French restaurant located at the exquisite boutique Wanderlust Hotel, in Little India area. Cocotte Restaurant encourages interaction as dishes of piping hot homemade French dishes are passed around the tables between family and friends.
Mushroom and Bacon Quiche gave us a headstart on our sumptuous brunch - a huge, tart-like quiche cut into slices, filled with the earthly, robust flavors of sh!take mushroom, bacon and onions. The crust was buttery and crumbly, kind of delicious to eat on its own.
Then it was 2 types of Egg Ramekins (small dished items) for us. The Scrambled Eggs with Corned Veal Tongue and Button Mushrooms - not a fan of scrambled eggs because of its runny texture, but I did enjoy it splattered sweetly around the umami corned veal tongue - meaty, flavorful - making this dish very lovely. I should've taken another one.
Next, Fried Honeycomb Tripe with Pickles and Wholegrain Mustard (SGD$16.00 if ordered ala carte) - simply known as beef stomach - was a delicacy in itself. One of the more memorable dishes here for me. Breaded and dusted with smoked paprika, this dish engaged all the senses, from the pleasant crackling of the exterior to the gentle chewy-ness of the meat, encompassing elements of smokiness, spice and savoury all in one. More, please.
Pot-roast Pork Collar with Pumpkin Puree was quite remarkable, with slices of succulent, melty pork, and I basked in its fragrant, pot-roasted taste. However, the piercing sweetness of the pumpkin puree seemed to be a rather mismatched contrast.
Finally, the Banana Walnut Cake with Salted Caramel and Chantilly was rather lovely - a dessert with a burst of flavors, encompassing the soft fragrance of banana and nutty sweetness of walnut in moistened cake cubes, creamy mounds of chantilly cream and moistened cubes of cake together with savory touch of the salted caramel.

Pork Trotter Parcel
A special style of serving braised pork trotters in wraps with hazelnuts, thyme, brown butter, capers and sauteed kale. Braised Pork Trotters were deboned and served in shredded form like pull pork and mustard was given to pair along with the dish. Though the dish may be special with nuts and vegetables, i still prefer a stronger taste from braised pork and juicier touch.
Whole Grilled Seabass
The whole grilled seabass was something not within my expectation as it was bigger than what I had thought. Meat was fresh and tender, served with vierge and salad of crispy quinoa that literally overwhelmed the entire perimeter of the fish. Capers, mint, radish, shallots, lemon and parsley was part of the mix too.
