La Petite Cuisine

When we think of affordable French Cuisine without burning a hole in our pockets, La Petite Cuisine has always been in our mind. Our last visit was many years back and then it had left us a good impression of enjoying French Cuisine without splurging too much. This little hidden Gem is conveniently located at Botanic Garden MRT and takes about less than 5 minutes to walk if you know the direction to Serene Centre.

La Petite French Bistro

The environment was simple and down to earth, a kind of cosy place that I will want to have for a meal.

Mushroom Soup & Prawn Bisque with additional Bread Basket - $6, $8.50 & $4

Four Piece Bread Rolls with 2 Pieces Butter - $4

The two-course weekend set at $35 is available for Lunch and Dinner, from Friday to Sunday. The Entree comes with 2 choices, Ravioli of Prawns and Foie Gras in light Lemon Creme Sauce or Escargots Bourgogne (6 pieces) served with Salad mix with French dressing. 

2 Course Weekend Set @ $35

I wasn't quite game for Escargots for that evening, thus I chose Ravioli instead. On an ala carte order, the dish alone will cost $19.50. The dish comes with 3 big Ravioli, stuffed with prawns and Foie Gras, cooked in light lemon creme sauce drizzled with a handful of chopped parsley.

Ravioli of Prawns and Foie Gras in light Lemon Creme Sauce

This Entree is surprisingly good and appetizing in the sweet light cream sauce. The entire piece of prawn and Foie Gras can be obviously seen in the pocket of the Ravioli, great!

Prawn and Foie Gras

While the Mains you can choose to have Confit De Canard (French Duck Leg) with Gratin Potatoes, Yellowfin Tuna Steak Loin with Sweet Paprika & Olive Oil served with Petit French Beans and Buttered Rice or Air flown Sirloin Steak served with Salad & Gratin Potatoes.

Air Flown Sirloin Steak served with Salad & Gratin Potato

The plate looked quite empty as they served the bubbling hot gratin potatoes in a separate dish. The portion was small, no complains as the business name already told us that its "Petite". Striploin steak weighs an average of 125 to 130g and is served with mesclun salad and potatoes gratin. My steak was done medium-well as requested and sat in the middle of brown sauce accompanied by the greens and mustard sauce. Although the portion is small, I was kind of full halfway through this meal. I'm happy and satisfied with the beef taste and the meat was not too gamey. On a separate note, an ala carte dish cost about $19.50

Medium Well Striploin Steak

Be careful not to touch the side of the Potato Gratin dish as they are scalding hot. The edges are slightly charred with potatoes slices overlapping each other with compliments of sour cream.

Potato Gratin

While the guy has a bigger appetite, he has twice the amount of Beef from Airflown Australian Beef Tenderloin which weighs about 250g. 

Airflown Australian Beef Tenderloin 250g - $34.50

Medium doneness was served perfectly on the serving board accompanied by mesclun greens as well as sweet mustard tasting sauce and of course not forgetting the potatoes gratin that was separated out too.

Beef Tenderloin

Black Forest Cake tasted somehow similar to the one cake we bought off the shelves. The cake was spongy and come with chocolate shavings and a dollop of fresh cream both on top of the cake as well as by the side of the cake. The significant part of black forest cake comes with hints of wine taste and this has it.

Black Forest Cake - $8

The standard of food is still pretty good as compared to the last visit. Do visit if you are looking for some simple and affordable authentic French Food.
