Lunch at Bistro Du Vin

Bistro Du Vin, Scotts Road

The last time we had lunch at Bistro Du Vin (#01-14, Shaw Centre, 1 Scotts Road, tel : +65 6733 7763) in town was almost a decade ago. This was from their current set lunch menu.

Bistro Du Vin, french melon bayonne ham salad

French melon and Bayonne ham salad. It's not so much different from having prosciutto di Parma with melon pairing saltiness from the ham with the sweetness in the fruit.

Bistro Du Vin, green pea soup

Green pea soup with bacon oil that didn't taste like it had any bacon oil. I had been imagining that the peas might have been sweeter but that wasn't the case.

Bistro Du Vin, blanquette de veau

That's their blanquette de veau with pilaf and peas - the first part of the name a white stew of veal with flavoured rice. Not bad. Pilaf was nice.  I thought this dish might have been a lot better if it was ox tongue rather than veal but that's just my opinion. The veal was chunky and plentiful though.

Bistro Du Vin, ribeye

There was a ribeye option with blue cheese sauce so we took it. I couldn't tell what cheese it was but for a blue, it wasn't very strong or stinky. Still had a nice pungent creaminess like a very intense Camembert or Reblochon though. Today's fries were good too.

Bistro Du Vin, chocolate mousse

Didn't think much of the chocolate mousse.

Bistro Du Vin, french apricot melba

But their French apricot melba was nice. It was mostly the cream and vanilla ice cream that did the trick rather than those apricots since they didn't have any assertive citrus.
