living up to the hype

Has it been 3 years? Or 4? Still living up to the hype of being one of the best french bistros. Albeit pricey but good quality nosh. 
Drivers park at public car park besideperanakan museum or SMU. 
Place only has 1 washroom on main dining hall. Another washroom on level 2. 
Housed in old prewar building, you can feel walls vibraye ever so slightly when trains and cars move below and outside. All the charm eh?
I sat near the door and warm humid air hits like an unwanted sales man when someone enters and leaves. 
Service is personal and fab. They know the food. we wanted 3 appetizers and they said better not. Too rich. We listened and they were right. 
But you MUST order thier duck rilette. This is shredded duck meat spread thick or thin on toast. OmG the flavour profile is complex and ootw. interestingly it's cheaper for takwaway than dine in. Rilettes I mean. 
we also had mont d'or which is molten cheese to dip your bread in. This is rich but not that jelak. However its a huge tub so must share. 5 of us shared this. 
the chefs special ribeye is not on menu but on wall. Usually available. Done medium rare and served with caramalised onions and softened garlic. this was rustic french at its finest. 
We also had welsh lamb and oven baked crispy turbot. The lamd was ok. Nothing is better than the beef. The turbot came with a side of piquant mini cheese ravioli in ratatouille like stew. It came very close to knocking the beef off its throne. And it complimented the beef tres well. 
We had dessert as well but nothing spectacular.

My $30 salad came with a side of oversized dead moth with no apology

 Disclaimer: this review is only focused on service and food hygiene.
 I went back here for the 2nd time for lunch because I really enjoyed the food on my first visit for dinner. Unfortunately this second visit was so disappointing. We found a giant dead moth snuggled in nicely underneath amidst our $30 salad, which we then pointed out to the male staff. His lack of response was the surprising factor here, not a word of apology what so ever. He just proceeded to take the bowl away, not a word, came back with a new bowl and acted like nothing happened.
 
 For the price I'm paying, I'm expecting good restaurant service and to not have my salad with a side of oversized moth. This is superbly disappointing to the point I'm not sure I'm going back no matter how great the food is. The least they could have done was apologize for ruining my lunch.

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
