Le Gourmet [Closed]

Le Groumet is a hidden Gem located near Ayer Rajah Market and Food Centre. As we entered the restaurant, we saw their slogan that goes "It's all about good Food". Dining establishment was simple in decor, with white as its theme, giving a spacious and clean environment.

At the door Front

"It's All About Good Food"
Every table comes with a cup of water filled with a little candle, I guess this will be used during dining in the night.

Candle

As soon as we set in, we quickly ordered our beverages.

From left to right:
Cranberry Apple Juice - $4
Passion Fruit with Lychee Cooler - $4.50
 Root Beer - $2.80
Orange Juice - $4 


Beverages
The hot chocolate was foamy and well prepared.

Valrhona hot Chocolate - $5

One of their Signature Mains that comes with tangy grilled premium chicken thigh cooked dressed with hickory and nachos cheese sauce. Skin was cook to slight crisp added a special crunch on its texture with the succulent thigh meat. The nachos and hickory sauce had further enhanced the charred taste from the grill. Awesome! Sides like the spring vegetables were pretty average consisting of a varieties of steamed vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower and carrots blanched in light chicken broth. Whereas their homemade coleslaw was not bad too, these crunchy cabbages were tossed with onions, carrots, and mayonnaise sauce, best is that they were not too milky.

Mexican Grilled Chicken - $16
A simpler version from the former. These thighs were infused with Japanese BBQ sauce then charcoal grilled to obtain its tempting presentation.

Char grilled Teriyaki Chicken - $16
Golden brown breaded pacific dory with the sides as macaroni & cheese and coleslaw. Exterior of the breaded crumbs had a rougher texture than the dory meat.  Macaroni & cheese was oven baked  dressed in rich & lucious English Cheddar cheese sauce.

English Crispy Fish & Chips - $16
Pan-seared Norwegian King Salmon was beautifully done with a creamy lemon Capers sauce added with mashed potato and coleslaw as the sides. Its skin was seared to its perfect crispiness with its meat still packed full of juice. Presentation of the creamy homemade mashed potatoes was in wonderful shape topped with savoury mushroom sauce.

Pan Roasted Capers Norwegian Salmon - $18


Fluffy battered soft shell crab in Alio Olio Style, this dish can be served in spicy or non-spicy form. Pasta was cooked to al-dente perfection. Do note that pasta dishes do not come with sides of choice.

Soft Shell Crab Pasta - $16


Overall, the place was a little quiet but definitely a good spot for some who want to dine as a group. Surprisingly, they are one of the places recommended by trip adviser base on their decal on the entrance. Though the price may be close to those western food chain restaurant, standard of food are said better than some places. For somewhere not crowded and cozy, Le Gourmet is a good alternative. Moreover there is no additional charges like GST or service charge.
