3 course Christmas menu at Les Bouchons

Les Bouchons, Ann Siang Hill

This happened at the Ann Siang branch of Les Bouchons. Our first time trying their Christmas menu.

Les Bouchons, bread

Their bread has been kinda the same over the years. Much better eating than the one that Ginett serves. At this point I'd like to point out that it would have been great if they used salted butter but since there's that salt mill on the side readily available...

Les Bouchons, foie gras poêlé

Foie gras poêlé was nice - unctuous richness paired perfectly with salt crystals on toast. This was pretty much the same thing as the one we had at Rochester on a different plate.

Les Bouchons, chicken liver mousse fig jam

Very happy with their house made chicken liver mousse. Aside from the livery flavoured velvet texture, I tasted cream, garlic and a sweetness in it - reminded me of the one we had previously at the defunct Lokal. So good with the fig jam on bread.

Les Bouchons, wagyu oyster blade

So one of the mains was a 300g MBS 6/7 wagyu oyster blade. It was nice and impressively tender  - the only thing that kinda marred it was the sliver skin lining in the meat which wasn't trimmed away.  

Les Bouchons, magret de canard

There's also a magret de canard with shallot butter which is normally not on their menu. This one was a little dry and needed much jaw work. I had imagined/hoped that it would be more tender.

Les Bouchons, blue cheese sauce

Good thing we got their blue cheese sauce on the side. This made everything dipped in it so heart clogging-ly delicious.

Les Bouchons, christmas tree

Had a dessert call My Christmas Tree... if I remembered correctly. There's some mousse-y coconut with mint and lime gel thingy within the crimson tree with a chocolate cake base.

Les Bouchons, brie

First time getting their truffled Brie for dessert. I think this would be good with a drizzle of honey.

Les Bouchons, let it snow

Some drink which was basically Milo with Bailey's and marshmallow called Let It Snow. Yeah, we could have made this ourselves at home and made a better one that that. Now we know. Let it go.
