One of the best French fare!

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!

Signature roasted chicken

Affordable French food

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.

Poulet - passably good

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.   For more detailed information and photos, please visit: http://thearcticstar.blogspot.sg/2014/01/lunch-at-poulet-restaurant.html

Rowdy staff

The food was alright.. just want to comment on one of the staff there. I understand it is their lunch break but I was right beside them, having my late lunch with my friend. I think it was one of their kitchen staff, she was making a lot of noise shouting across the shop and all. There were customers there you know.

CTP outlet is a no no. Prefer Jurong point.

Poulet - The French Roasted Chicken Flew To Chinatown Point

To read the full review with photos, please visit http://www.aspirantsg.com/poulet-the-french-roasted-chicken-flew-to-chinatown-point/

After a short wait of 20 minutes, our famous French roasted chicken Poulet Roti ($15.80 for half, $28.80 for whole) was served after the announcement of all the good newsHere's how the story for this supposedly amazing poultry goes - the entire chicken was brined for a full day in a traditional recipe before being placed in the rotisserie for a slow roast till the skin turns to a golden brown. We have to give it to the french when it comes to presentation. The sight of the beautifully roasted chicken was enough to whet our appetite and get us all hungry. On its own, the chicken was tender and succulent but not amazing yet. It only manages to hit home run with its home made mushroom Chardonnay sauce, that's what gave it the X factor. Mediterranean Stew Lamb Shank ($15.80) consisted of baby lamb shank stewed with root vegetables and rosymary in its own jus infused with orange. The lamb meat was nice and soft but diners who are not comfortable with the distinctive smell of lamb should steer away from this dish. I am afraid I could not sense traces of orange infusion at all. Braise De Canard ($15.80) was braised duck leg in sweet wine sauce on baby spinach topped with cranberry and glazed shallot. I came to the conclusion that the chefs here are pretty good with their meat. The dulcet wine sauce was truly an additional bonus! Iberico Pork Belly ($15.80) consisted of braised Spanish iberico pork belly served with mashed potato, leek confit and double mustard. I am not sure if I am personally biased towards pork belly in general but it is just impossible to go wrong with this delectable part of the pig. Ladies need not be overly concerned. Despite the word belly, the meat was still pretty lean overall with mild hints of fats in every bite. This is definitely my favourite dish for the evening! To sum it up, Poulet offers casual French dining that's decent and won't hurt your pocket.
