The Black Sheep Cafe serves Swiss-French cuisine. The head chef is available for hire for cooking at private parties as well. Reservations recommended.
We have just been to this place a 2nd time,after being introduced recently. We had the irresistable baked Brie Cheese(again) to start,mild French brie in nutty crust baked till melting,&the cold citrus relish is perfectly refreshing. Next was the duck confit,it was just as good as the lamb shank we tried on our first trip..unusual pairing of the French classic w Mango,,but it sure works! After having had the souffle before,we asked if we could have the Banana crepes(it was offered on the lunch board), and were really glad the chef obliged!!Super thin Crepe,cramelised banana w vanilla icew cream..sure made our day..simple dessert w lots of oomph! We could not contain our curiosity on finding out more about the chef,& were pleased that the chef,Mr Ratha was able to see us. To our question of how long he had spent in france or europe,he humbly replied that he has NEVER been overseas to train in cookin?! This is simply a place that one must try to believe!

All in all barring some minor quirks Chef Ratha gave us a wonderful dinner with solid taste rating all around and a couple of super delicious gems to boot. Chef Ratha taking the time to have a long chat with us on Christmas Day about the food and beverage industry in Singapore was an unforgettable experience.
We will definitely return to The Black Sheep Cafe to try the Cheeky Pork on Sauteed Greens & Pear, Orange Chilli Glaze as well as their signature Kahlua Souffle with Double Chocolate Ice Cream. These items have rave reviews and the latter actually takes a minimum of 25 minutes to prepare.
Chef Ratha has a wonderful cosy French dining establishment going serving top qualify food at reasonable prices. If you come for lunch their 3-course set with an included drink goes for only S$29.50 nett. If Chef is able to solve some of the restaurant quirks such as the waiting time and food consistency issues during high volume periods, The Black Sheep Cafe will definitely be one of the best French dining establishments in Singapore.
