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.
We had the lobster bisque, duck confit, cheeky pork and double chocolate - all were good (i thought the pork was the best of the bunch and a must try for first timers). Service was good but there is a fair amount of waiting with only Chef-owner Ratha and one assistant manning the kitchen.
My family and I visited the restaurant a week ago for my birthday celebration, the staff were very friendly and service was excellent from the moment we stepped into the restaurant.
We ordered half dozen escargots and lobster bisque for starters and had the Cheeky Pork and Duck Confit for mains. To finish, we ordered the Souffle and Double Chocolate Boudini.
The starters were great especially the escargots which were had garlic seasoning and went extremely well with the bread served. The lobster bisque would be recommended for those have a palate for seafood.
The pork cheeks were tender and not too oily and it even had a sweet and sour sauce to give it a tangy taste. As for the duck confit, my family loved it for its crispy skin and tender meat and it is a definite must-try at this restaurant!
The Souffle was an incredible sight when brought to our table and it was soft and flavourful but it might not be suitable for children as it is served with Kahlua coffee liqueur! They can instead try the Double Chocolate Boudini which is a chocolate lava cake which was fantastic! The was melted chocolate within the cake itself and it is paired with a scoop of ice-cream which complements the dish really well!
Enjoyed myself thoroughly in this meal as the ambience is not too serious like most french dining places and suitable for families like mine.
