Le Bistrot du Sommelier II – The Yardstick for French Bistros

16 06 2013

I was starting a 10-week internship the next day so I convinced myself that I had to spoil myself with an awesome meal. After all, I didn’t know what the workload was going to be like and when my next indulgent meal would be. The initial plan was to head for lunch at Restaurant Absinthe at Boat Quay but I guess my due diligence fell short as it was closed for Saturday lunch. But seriously, who closes for Saturday lunch?

It might not have been a bad thing though since Le Bistrot du Sommelier was just around the area. It’s one of my favourite French bistros in Singapore with food quality that had been tried and tested. I last visited them a year ago and the menu has been revamped slightly since then to my delight.

Their affordable Pork Rillette ($9.50/100g) can easily feed 3-4 people as an appetizer. It’s has just the right proportion of fats and isn’t overly salty, very much like luncheon meat in paste form.

We also had the Smoked Salmon with Sour Cream, Quinoa, Onions & Dill, which I found enjoyable as well. The Salmon is just mildly salty and blends in nicely with the sour cream.

The Beef Short Rib with Polenta Mash ($40++) was one of their daily specials but it paled in comparison to the Braised Beef Cheeks that we had as our other main, as the accompanying polenta mash was too sweet and didn’t complement the short rib much. I’m not a fan of polenta anyway.

The Braised Beef Cheeks in Red Wine Sauce, served with potatoes ($34++) is possibly my favorite dish on their menu, especially because of the hearty gravy and tender cheeks. The gravy went great with the dish of short ribs too.

As with my previous 2 visits, I had the Profiteroles filled with Vanilla Ice Cream in Warm Chocolate Sauce topped with Sliced Almonds ($14++). Not as good as I remembered but the crisp choux buns encasing the ice cream is still one of the best around in my opinion. 

I often make the mistake of over-ordering here so be warned. Portions are really huge, hence the usual 3-course meal per person does not apply here. A party of 4 can consider just ordering 2-3 starters, 3 mains and 2 desserts to share or there might be wastage and it’s just cruel to watch such awesome food go down the drain.
