La Cuisson is a local success story.
First started in a coffee shop as Le Cuisson at Queen Street in 2011 (I was there in 2012!), the humble food stall then progressed to Holland Drive, and finally established itself as a bistro and wine bar. Taking over the space previously occupied by Creperie des Arts (I’m surprised it has closed!), La Cuisson has definitely stood the test of time and finicky palates of Singaporeans.
Serving a range of classic French and modern European cuisine, the menu is predominantly meat-based. I was happy with the crab salad and pan-seared salmon but those were obviously not what you’d come here for! Think pork, beef, lamb and meat meat meat instead. Everyone at the table had their own favourites (K’s was the lamb duo) so it’s best to come with a group of friends to try as many dishes as you can!
