Inverted wooden cages, topsy turvy red roosters, it’s playful details like these that makes you feel completely relaxed about dining at La Cantine by Bruno Menard — the second restaurant (after &Made on Scotts Road) by first 3 Michelin Star Chef to be permanently based in Singapore.
Chef Bruno’s take on the classic Salad Nicoise, the “Nice” salad is well, nice. Salty, tangy, and the tomatoes are exceptionally sweet!
“Nice” Salad ($22++)
tuna, tomato, potato, bell peppers, egg, anchovies, green bean, tonnato sauce, roasted garlic oil
Scottish Atlantic Salmon Tartare ($18++ as starter, $32++ as main)
Omg the “onion” soup is the best! I say “onion” because in a blind taste test, I’d nail this as mushroom soup. Very rich and creamy, so unlike the traditional French onion soups I’m used to.
Cevennes Onion Soup ($28++)
“foie gras royale” truffle scented chantilly
My favourite, cod! With lots of capers—which I hate, and generous handfuls of almonds—which I love!
Pan Roasted Pacific Cod fish ($32++)
“ratte” mash potato, brown butter, almonds, capers
Roasted Spottail Bass ($34++)
provencal tomato sauce, vanilla oil, green asparagus
Although I did try the “Baba au Rhum”, I’m not posting it because what you see below is the dessert to remember for the night! Combination of chantilly cream (I dug this out haha), vanilla ice cream, crumble, caramel sauce, ladyfinger biscuits, valrhona caramelia crunchy pearls and two shots of Nespresso Crealto, this is akin to an unorthodox tiramisu in a glass. Available till the end of the month, go try it before it’s gone!
Nespresso and Caramel Sundae ($12++)
created with Crealto – a Nespresso limited edition Grand Cru
Big big thank you to Pei Shan and Dixie for inviting and hosting dinner!
