Filet of salmon from Les Bouchons

Les Bouchons, Ann Siang Road

It's been about 15 years since the first time I was here at the Ann Siang branch of Les Bouchons till today.

Les Bouchons, salad

That had also been the only time that I've actually taken a picture of their salad.  Things have changed a little. The pictures are better now. 

Les Bouchons, sauces

Grain mustard, dijon mustard, mayo and Béarnaise. Not exactly the best selection for seafood which we were having tonight.

Les Bouchons, salmon

Tried their salmon for the first time today. The passionfruit butter that accompanied it sounded intriguing. There was option for medium doneness for the fish so I was willing to give it a go. There restaurant added that since it wasn't sashimi grade fish, they wouldn't go for any doneness less than medium. Hmmm...

The kitchen came through with medium doneness. I would have loved a little more char flavouring on the surface but I am not complaining. The passionfruit butter was unfortunately little to talk about. It was neither passionfruit-y nor buttery. But thankfully the salmon held its own with just salt and pepper and a squeeze of lemon.

Les Bouchons, affogato

Affogato's not bad here with their creamy vanilla ice cream and bitter espresso.
