Poulet is serves French cuisine with a refreshing twist to their signature Poulét Roti, the Amazing French Roast Chicken is served in freshly home-made Cranberry Sauce and Double Mustard, creating yet another perfect symphony. The French-themed casual dining chain offers affordable French classics to the masses in a comfortable setting.
We have heard about this French restaurant in Chinatown Point and planned to have lunch there with my family on Sun, Dec 7. It has other outlets in Vivo city, Raffles City, Bugis, etc. We must say that the food definitely didn't disappoint. For starters, we had the Escargot, French Onion and Mushroom Soup followed by our main course of Chicken with Creamy Chardonnay Sauce, Pissa Duck (Crust Pizza), Lamb Shank and Braised Pork Belly. For dessert, we had the Tiramisu and the Creme Brulé. Everything was very delicious as with the presentation and serving portion of the dishes. As my wife and I had recently visited Paris, we thought this French fare is as good or in some instance, better than the real McCoy. We then asked if the chef was French but to our surprise, we were introduced to a young and local lady chef whose meticulous culinary skills are on par with some of the Parisian restaurants we've eaten. The serving staff were also conscientious and polite, always ensuring that our every needs are met. Well, finally, for the icing on the cake, the bill came out to be very reasonable, definitely a fraction of what will cost us even at the most inconspicuous corner restaurant in Paris!
Poulet is a good option if one does not feel like eating Asian food in Chinatown. What I like about their main dishes are their sauces. The signature chicken dish was very quite tasty with its sauce. The oxtail was tender. My favourite was the pork belly with its sauce but the meat was too lean for me. I prefer the pork belly has more fats in it. I couldn't finish the mushroom soup as it was too creamy and buttery for me. The onion soup was wonderful. The price was very affordable for such variety of simple french food.
Heard of the rather new Poulet opening in Singapore, and heard mixed reviews, so Edison*, Katherine and I decided to scout it out for our dining pleasure over lunch one day. They have many outlets, we chose the one that was closer to our workplaces in general - 133 New Bridge Road, Level 2, Chinatown Point, Singapore 059413. The number is 6538 3595. There was no queue, so we snagged a comfortable booth seat. The interior of Poulet is relaxing, done in light hues and cushy seats, setting the perfect ambience for casual comfort dining of classic French cooking techniques. The contemporary concept of wooden tables and modern classic chairs made the place ideal for friends, family, colleagues and dating couples alike. After some escargots and soups, we had the Poulet Roti - their signature roasted chicken in homemade Chardonnay Mushroom sauce. The golden brown skin was crispy, and the inside was tender and tasty. Infused with the very delicious gravy, we all understood why this dish tasted divine enough to be the restaurant's signature dish. Served alongside the Poulet Roti was the Pressure-cooked Oxtail in Red Wine Sauce with Carrot and Onion. The oxtail was very buttery tender it floated into the mouth and just disintegrated smoothly, we were surprised. The taste was heightened by the impossibly delicious red-wine based gravy.
