Our World Tuesday
As part of my RWS Invite Membership, I chose the dining option as hubby did not want the tickets to Universal Studios. -_-
I celebrated my birthday at L'Atelier Singapour de Joël Robuchon, a casual dining French restaurant opened in Singapore by well known French chef Joël Robuchon. He was the youngest chef ever at 38 years old to receive three Michelin stars for his first restaurant Jamin and being crowned Chef of the Century by the prestigious Guide Gault Millau. He has collected 26 Michelin stars worldwide for all his restaurants with 21 restaurants spanning 10 countries globally.
The restaurant is stylishly decorated in funky black and red. The service staff seated us at the counter table facing the kitchen so we could witness the chefs create, prepare and cook innovative dishes right before us.
Foie gras custard with red Porto wine and Parmesan foam
Veal carpaccio topped with a tuna sauce and served with crispy hearts of romaine
This is an elegant course with a savoury tuna sauce. The pretty pinkish meat was so tender. I cleaned up the plate spreading the yummy tuna sauce on crispy hard rolls. :P
Sauteed John Dory, cilantro, green curry sauce
This green curry was not spicy at all. It was too diluted for my taste. The amazing sushi rice cubes gave me an idea, it would be fun to serve to my party guests.
French-style skirt steak with shallots confit
Although the food portions were small, I was beginning to feel full at this stage. The Angus steak was great. As hubby doesn't eat beef, the chef cooked a special dish of codfish for him.
L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon's fabulously yummy mashed potato
I absolutely fell in love with L'Atelier Singapour de Joël Robuchon's signature mashed potato! It is rich and silky, easily the finest I have ever eaten. I could eat this on its own, it's pure bliss on the tongue. My dear friend PY, who is looking for the most delicious mashed potato in Singapore, would love this. :)
Dessert was a creamy Araguani chocolate with cacao sorbert and oreo cookie, followed by our preferred hot beverage.
It was a fantastic meal that held many surprises for us. I would recommend this place to friends who do not mind paying for tasty innovative dishes. :)
