French cuisine is always so petite and nicely presented. But this is a little bit too dry and salty. #frenchcuisine

The Short Review

Price Range: $50-$70

Nearest MRT: Botanic Gardens

Instagrammability: High -
Fine dining in the Dempsey forest.

Food:
1) Pan-Seared Foie Gras [$32.00++]
Essentially $19 per thick slab of foie, each piece is seared nicely & not overdone, though I'd prefer it to be slightly creamier. Still, foie's my weakness & this tastes good.
The poached white peach & pomegranate seeds added a nice touch of sweetness.

2) Seared Black Cod Filet [$42.00++]
Excellent sear on the cod, but the sautéed artichoke, with an almost pickled taste, kept sitting in the Beurre Meunière sauce & diffused an overpowering sourness to the rest of the components such as the cherry tomato confit.

3) Oven-Roasted Quail stuffed with Wild Mushrooms & Foie Gras [$42.00++]
Wasn't kidding when I said foie is my weakness.
The quail was almost perfectly handled, spilling its contents of diced, earthy mushrooms & a small slab of foie like a piñata upon gentle knife-probing. The pommes mousseline was good & cheesier than expected, but it's edged out by the one I tried at L'Atelier. All in all, superior to the cod.

Even The Entertainer can't save you from taking a financial beating, but Au Petit Salut's fare makes it quite worth the damage. Do note the enforced smart casual dress code; it's Dempsey, not Sunset Way.

Come Here: Again.

Au Petit Salut is a long-standing establishment nestled in the verdant Dempsey Hill that serves contemporary French cuisine. Other than a reliable date spot, their value-for-money set lunches are a draw: you get to enjoy a three-course menu with coffee or tea from $38. The Baked Burgundy Snails are a real treat to start your meal with – baked escargots bathed in herbed garlic butter, stuffed in a bone marrow. If you like foie gras, they are pretty generous with their portion and sear it till an impeccable crust is achieved, but still melts in your mouth. For the mains, go for the 150 days grain-fed Bavette for some perfectly cooked, flavourful and succulent steak. For a sweet finale, the beautifully balanced Homemade Lemon Tart is bound to please.

The biggest and thickest Foie Gras ive ever eaten. Its perfection and it goes well with chocolate! Perfect starter!
