Les Bouchons Rive Gauche (Robertson Quay): Sunday Riviera Brunch, That includes its A lot-Raved Grilled Black Angus Rib Eye Steak – The Chosen Glutton

“I went to Les Bouchons for brunch” was greeted with a number of “how was the steak?” and “I have been that means to attempt it”. Tellingly, the repute of Les Bouchons is enviable. We have been on the French restaurant, its flagship in Singapore first established in 2002, for a Sunday brunch at their Robertson Quay outlet. It’s the Group’s maiden try at brunch, which is simply accessible on Sundays from 11.30am – 3.30pm. We went with no expectation, and left with a craving to revisit. In fact, we couldn’t miss out on their signature steak while we have been there – we will get to that finally.

Escargots de Burgundy :: $16++

A quintessential French starter, the Escargots de Burgundy ($16++), was priced surprisingly affordable, with 6 items swimming in house-made garlic butter (that comes with a touch of alcohol). The accompanying bread basket (which deserves an honorary point out – crusty crust with pillowy crumbs) got here in useful when it was time to wipe the skillet clear. The escargots have been, nonetheless, not as plump as we would like. Due to how promising it regarded, we have been left barely discontented. It lacked chunk and chew, each of that are attribute of escargots. For its affordability, although, we will foresee ourselves Even ordering this in our future visits.

Riviera Wellness Bowl :: $18++

An identical story repeated in our heads with the Riviera Wellness Bowl ($18++). Make no mistake, the substances that lined the bowl (granola, honey yogurt, goji berries, banana, strawberries and chia seeds) have been in step with the theme, wholesome and light-weight. Strawberries got a particular therapy, soaked in vanilla, sugar, and just a little little bit of balsamic vinegar. These lent the berries a candy, and barely savory and bitter profile, a welcomed steadiness to the bowl. What was lacking for us, although, was the temperature it was served at. We thought it will have been good to serve chilled, versus the one we had that was nearer to room temperature (acknowledging that it was 5 – 10 minutes after service that we began consuming).

Massive plates adopted the handful of starters. Consciously not having regard to its prior repute, our tasting of the Grilled Black Angus Rib Eye Beef Steak ($39.80++) corroborated the widespread sentiments. For 300g, for the reduce, and that value, we concluded that it will be a worthwhile order. Your usually well-executed, well-seasoned, tender, and juicy rib eye steak – the sort that requires no condiments to enrich. Oh sure, the shoestring fries, that are addictive, by the way in which, are available in limitless servings.

With such a excessive bar to match, its vegetarian counterpart, the Bouchons Hangover Remedy ($24++), paled as compared. Sitting atop the sourdough bread have been scrambled eggs with truffle oil, sautéed porcini mushrooms, roasted cherry tomatoes, asparagus, and Not possible meatballs (ie plant-based “meat”). We thought it was too advanced a dish. There have been one too many substances with strong flavors that they clashed. Having beforehand tried Not possible, we discovered the style right here just a little farther from meat, albeit juicier.

The Bouchons Sunday Roast ($32++) modifications weekly, relying on the produce within the kitchen. This week, we had completely marinated fork-tender roast rooster. The mushroom sauce was commendable. Basically, intense mushroom soup within the consistency of a condiment. We totally loved the dish, however discover it troublesome to justify the reasonably hefty price ticket for rooster.

Chocolate Brownie :: $10++

We’re unable to determine if the Chocolate Brownie ($10++) or the Crème Brûlée ($12++) is our favourite dessert. The previous was legitimately gooey on the within, a uncommon sight, we should say. It was such a star by itself, being made with 66% valrhona chocolate and fewer sugar, that the vanilla ice cream was otiose. The latter was, preliminarily, beneficiant in portion. What makes it stand out from its rivals is the addition of an orange liqueur. That, we thought, added an entire new dimension: a really slight trace of zest and bitterness. So refreshing. Nobody stated we will not have two favorites, proper?

Skip the Crepes ($8++). It is a lot much less memorable with widespread pairings like Nutella, banana, and honey.

All in all, it could possibly safely be stated that hearty brunch might be discovered at Les Bouchons. The dishes are available in gigantic parts, and promise to induce meals coma on the finish of the afternoon. For alcoholics champagne fanatics, it’s possible you’ll be happy to know that the Group holds, completely in Singapore, Champagne Jean Vesselle.
