Been wanting to try this restaurant since the start of 2013 and finally here we are! [actually was because Saveur was closed on New Year’s eve 😦 ]
What is french dining without the french onion soup? I am one who loves my soup served hot, PIPING HOT please! Poulet’s rendition of this onion soup was a watered down version of the french onion soup I had in Paris. Though they were generous with the onions, me thinks that they didn’t simmer / cook it longer enough, some onions were still tough. And missing some salty fatty yellow cheese. But for the price we paid (about $6++?), one cannot expect too much laaaaaaa.
We were craving for some egg benedicts that day, so we ordered this dish. Very interesting pairing but the egg white was a tad overcooked, or maybe the egg just looked plain. The mushrooms reminded me of the mushrooms from Marche, just that Marche ones are usually warmer.
Now this is a real pipping hot dish and both of us burnt our tongue eating it (greedy + hungry us). The escargots were de-shelled, so no messy trying to dig the flesh from the shell. Yay to laziness. Escargots were of a decent size and went well with the seasonings. The oil was a bit overwhelming though.
This was half a chicken. Ok we were expecting a bigger chicken but Poulet uses Spring chicken which are well-known for being puny! The meat was very tender, even the breast meat was moist and tender, which I usually avoid eating. But I didn’t like the sauce, kind of milky and sweet? Sher loved the sauce though.
