La Cuisson serves the best French, Western and Japanese classical foods plus many more and a range of fine wines and cider to complement them. A gourmet paradise of irresistible cuisines to satisfy any appetite in this cosy, rustic yet contemporary feel restaurant's interior.
I am so into French food that I am willing to travel, even downtown to Queen Street to try this newly opened stall in a kopitiam. French food in the 80s was Bistro at Marco Polo, Restaurant de France at Meridien, and Maxims at Intercont (now Regent), It has now evolved to a Singapore style "Bistro" or kopitiam style French food. It started with the French Stall at Serangoon Rd, Dozo at Valley point, and then many other understudy chefs opened up their own places. Cuisson is one of them. Thanks to them, they make French food afforable for everyone, and it is slowly becoming everyday food.
Ambience: It used to be my favourite coffee shop for breakfast and lunch as I worked at Bugis Junction. The middle road hokkien mee / pork innards stall is still there. Tables and chairs are now upgraded and are slightly more comfortable. It helped that it was a cool day when we sat down to try low priced French Food.
Food: We were early and had to wait half hour for the Cuisson to open so we ordered a pork innards soup - it is a good starter as we did not order soup from Cuisson. We wanted to try the pumpkin soup but they did not have it that day. We ordered 2 salads, a day's salad with balsamic vinegar and Caesar's salad. Both were fresh and very good tasting dressings. The Caesar's salad had a half boiled egg in it, but I missed the anchovies.
For mains we tried the steak (striploin cut) on mash and they had the red snapper on mushroom risoto. Steak was chewy as expected of the sirloin cut but it was well down. Good steak for $12. Mash was a bit mushy but it served as a nice dip for the steak to add sauce to the meaty flavour. The red snapper was well fried, crispy skin and tender on the flesh. Sliced a bit thin but it matched the musrhoom risoto. Fresh mushrooms cooked with risoto al dente in a thick orange flavoured sauce. Both were good and great value. Vowed to return.
Value: Great value, almost close to the price point where you could eat French food everyday...... but not just yet! $30 for 2 pax.
Service: Order at the counter, order taker could be more helpful, keyed into an iPad and pay cash, no credit etc.
Our family went there on the last weekend of 2014 and was treated with great food and services. For the few who had some bad expereinces on the servies, it could well be they were shorthanded on those days.
We told them we will be using the Entertainer app and there was no fuss at all. We were told that only 4 of the main courses will qualify for using the app which is fine for us.
We had Duck Rillete, Mushroom Pasta,Flat Iron Steak and Lemon Tart and I will give all these dishes a 10/10 for taste and presentation. We also had Catch of the Day, Poached Chicken Profiteroles and Creme Brulee which are also very good but a tad less "exotic" at 9/10.
The service staff were prompt to attend to our needs and very friendly too.
much room for improvement. just witnessed a customer who had to call twice this restaurant from his table to get his bill. And the restaurant was not even full. should train the staff better and have more staff to ensure service coverage. otherwise should not charge for bad or lack of service.
