Sometimes, life gives you a perfect afternoon to rejuvenate and reconnect with the ones you treasure. Savoury, sweet and subtle sum up the flavours of the week. Last weekend, E and I made a trip to La Petite Cuisine at Serene Centre. If you’re looking for good and affordable French food, you must try the food at this place. It’s an unpretentious and fuss-free bistro which serves value for money (most of them are under the price tag of $20) and French comfort food. Oh there’s no service charge and GST as well.
The place is quite easy to spot. Just lookout for their red checked tables that lined from the corridor to the interiors. For a start, we tasted the Escargots on Croissant. The bread was so awesome. Buttery and soft. For a moment, I felt like I was floating in croissant heaven. I don’t usually eat escargots but when I popped one in my mouth, the first taste was quite shocking. It tasted dark and dirty..I swear I could smell the scent of grass. Probably the patch of grass where this poor snail once roamed. Oops. The magic began when we tasted the Salmon with Rice and Duck Confit w Potato Gratin. Both were pretty good in my opinion. Nothing to rant about. Portions were also quite generous.
Fun fact: If you look around the restaurant, you will surely spot a big guy with dreary eyes and a mustache peering out from the kitchen time to time. Yeah, you’re right. That’s Mr Chef!
