Merci Marcel, Eng Hoon Street


French casual restaurant at Tiong Bahru (56 Eng Hoon Street, tel : +65 6224 0113) run by the people from Ô Batignolles Wine Bar at Club Street. Serving food from locally distributed ingredients where possible (Tiong Bahru Market) and even coffee from a local roast.


That above was their goat cheese tartar with mint. I don't know what's a cheese tartar. This tasted like goat's cheese mixed with a lot of sour cream. With little goat's cheese and barely any mint. Those flatbread were't that flat and had texture like tapioca kueh. Won't be getting these again. 


Their ravioles de Royan was nice. Creamily rich without being overwhelmingly so (ymmv) and cheesy with that delicious Tête de Moine.


Not much good things to say about their Angus beef item. Think it was flank steak which is a pretty lean cut of meat. Wasn't very flavourful. A little chewier than I normally prefer. Creamy mushrooms on top were nice though. Wondered why this didn't come with frites. For some reasons this was making me miss the onglet at Le Bistrot du Sommelier very much.
