To celebrate Valentine's Day, we had dinner at The French Kitchen for dinner.
The restaurant does not serve ala carte menu, but only has 3 set dinner menus for you to choose from. We ordered the Traditional Dubois ($78++/pax) and TFK Degustation ($88++).Read more here
Our appetizer is a very unique dish. In the small cup, there was Poached Egg in Cauliflower Emulsion
, together with parmesan cheese chips and capsicum bruschetta. I thought it was rather unique to have an egg in the cauliflower emulsion, but I guess adding some truffle powder would enhance the flavour more. Traditional Lobster Bisque with Tiger Prawn Beignet and Leek Custard
was good. I was still worried that my tempura tiger prawns would be too drenched but it came with two dry prawns in the plate and a pot of lobster bisque by the side, so you can add as and when you like it.
I enjoyed my Wagyu Beef Cheek with Asparagus and Eggplant Caviar
. The beef cheek is slowly braised for 48hours, it melts perfectly in the mouth. Champagne Sabayon with Pear Marmalade and Strawberry
was well executed. The pale golden dessert had a burst of flavours in the mouth.
The waitress in the restaurant was very jovial and friendly. However, as we were seated at a narrow passageway, we have seen the manager dropped utensils and bowls so many times that night, so much so that we were afraid that they would drop something on us too. They have to be more careful when handling the utensils.
