Set among shops with Hindu temples, houses of ill repute and bars where many a sailor has spent a night lies a French Stall. It had its roots in Victoria Food Court with an enterprising Frenchman who decided to start a French restaurant in the heart of Serangoon Road.
Food was decent, desserts ok. Go for the novelty and the quirkiness.
That is some good pry-of-the-bone grilled pork ribs with housemade barbecue sauce ($22.80), The French Stall! It's a massive portion for one (we shared between two) with robust savory notes. The lentils were a little overcooked, but a good base as its flavours didn't overpower the ribs. As part of a deal at the Stall, we also received a free giant baked Alaska ($11.80) with our meal.
I first try this restaurant years back when I was still a student and they are just a stall inside the foodcourt beside allson hotel. Its good that business grew and they have a nice shop of their own. But it has now become a restaurant that I will not visit. Not for the lack of good food but for the simple lack of decent service. This round we visited at 7.30pm with a restaurant half full. 4 of us was sitted down without a reservation(yes we r groupon users). Shortly after we are told the restaurant is fully booked and we have to leave. The reason being they only accept a few groupon customers a day and for groupon users their r fully booked till 9.30 pm Sunday night. After which the groupon is expired( they closed for renovations till 18 march n we r unable to come till last nite). was told we r free to stay n dine if we dun use groupon. Would you stay and eat? I won't and probably never again
didn't expect to find a french restaurant in serangoon rd. reached at night and manage to get the last order. felt the athmosphere of a restaurant that has been around for quite some time. Noticed some regular customers. Food was nice and typical french options available. Escargot and creme caramel something I would recomend trying.
The food wasn't terrible, but it was sub par across the board. The chocolate souffle was particularly awful. Considering the price it was an immense let down.
I think you can much better food at this price point. What a pity
I chanced upon TFS after surfing around for new steak places to try and I have to say – it does serve one of the best steaks I have ever had in Singapore!
I went for the three-course meal, which comprised the famous French onion soup, the steak and the yummilicious tiramisu, and all three food items certainly did not disappoint.
The soup was hot and comforting and I really enjoyed the two pieces of cheese on toast floating in the soup. They tasted great after they have soaked up the soup. The steak was tender and done the way how I liked it. The tiramisu was divine.
So yes, I will definitely return to TFS. Thumbs up!
