Napoleon at Telok Ayer is a dark and cosy place to chill out after work and grab a delicious bite if you don’t mind hanging out at the bar and the occasional raucous celebrations happening in the same space (unfortunately happened the time we were there).
The Mini Parma Ham Mini Croque Monsieur (4 pieces) is a steal at $9. The hot crusty toast coupled with the oozing cheese and savory meat, makes a wonderful treat for the palette. It makes substantial meal for one.
If you like cheese, their cheese platter $26 makes a great sharing platter with a mix of brie, comte, manchego, blue cheese, saint-nectaire.
The Chopped Angus Beef Tenderloin Tartare $28 was fresh and I liked the sashimi-like texture of the meat (similar to tuna). Mixed with light mustard sauce, egg yolk, onions & capers it makes for a rather luxurious dish. It is easy to overpower the dish with too much seasoning, but in this case I thought it the seasonings was a tad timid. Still, a great dish that I would come back for.
