There is something about the French that I like. My favourite movie is the cute French film Amelie; I always wanted to travel to Paris; In my trip to Australia, I discovered this lovely book written by a French lady Mireille Guillano : French Women Don’t Get Fat. But one thing I haven’t tried yet are their food….
In Singapore, there a lot of choices for French restaurants. I was looking for a casual-dining French restaurant without causing a big tear on your wallet. Poulet offers just that. My Singaporean doctor-friends tried out this restaurant in one of our midweek de-stressing sessions. And I took my hubby there a few months after to try it too. French cuisine are know for its rich tastes and thick creamy sauces. Poulet in French means chicken. So Poulet’s signature dish is their amazing roasted chicken.
SAUTEED WILD MUSHROOMS
This simple dish is surprisingly good. It has this intriguing yummy sauce that is just right. This is an appetiser but my friend prefer to take it as his main dish for the evening.
This is Poulet’s signature dish. It comes in Half ($15.80) or Whole (28.80). But the half chicken can easily be shared by two. It is in good portion size.The chicken is brined in full day and placed in rotisserie for a slow roast. It comes with a thick flavourful mushroom chardonnay sauce. I wouldn’t wonder why this is Poulet’s star dish because it is definitely a hit to our tastebuds. My hubby and I, being a true-blooded Pinoys, wish they have a rice for side dish for use to fully enjoy this dish.
IBERICO PORK BELLY
This is a braised Spanish pork belly ($15.80). It comes with mashed potato, leek confit and double mustard. The pork was amazingly soft and tender. It almost melts in our mouths. The mustard sauce’s tanginess blends perfectly with the pork. Again, my hubby & I would say, ‘pls bring in the rice. burp!’
We wanted something sweet after the satisfying heavy meal. We ordered the chocolate mousse ($7.80). It comes in a cute glass container. This is velvety smooth rich dessert with real chocolate chips inside and whip cream on top. It is perfect ending to our perfect dinner.
We will definitely come back here if we would be craving for some French cuisine that is pocket-friendly and tummy-filling.
