Duck confit is a timeless French classic that you can’t usually go wrong with if you dine at a French bistro. Confit is essentially curing the meat then cooked it in its own fat. @bistroduvin does a very classic version of duck confit ($38++) that’s served with garlic sautéed potatoes and side salad. It’s been continuously offered on their menu since the opening back in the 2000s.

Upon ordering, the servers will disclaim that the dish will be saltier than other duck confits that you had elsewhere. Indeed it is much saltier because it’s marinated overnight with salt, pepper and a blend of herbs and spices.

Despite its saltiness, you can feel the duck meat just shouts juiciness and tenderness. One can’t deny how crisp the skin is having been roasted in its own fat.

Onto the sautéed potatoes, it’s lightly seasoned with garlic. With the skin still on the baby potatoes, your carbs are filled with nutrients and flavour. Mustard is available upon request.

For its price point, you may wonder if this is value for money. I gotta admit that you have to truly appreciate French food to enjoy Bistro du Vin’s rendition of the duck confit. It’s offered as an option on their weekday set lunch menu which is slightly more value for money.

When dining here, you may feel that you’ve been teleported to a bistro in France and taken away from the crowded streets of Orchard Road.

🐄 This place is perfect for celebrations -- a small authentic french bistro with no gimmicks and an excellent small selection of French classics. The meat here is always done to perfection. Medium rare means medium rare.

I had high hopes and really wanted to love this, but the duck leg confit was unfortunately way too salty for me 😢 The service was good and I really liked the appetizers (french onion soup was really rich and cheesy!! 👍🏼), but the main dish was quite a disappointment. If you like heavier meals or meals that are rich on flavour and salt, then this may be for you? But personally this was a miss for me :(

My fav fav dessert here. The apple tart is a great great pastry that’s not flaky and goes really well with hazelnut chocolate ice cream. Topped this up at 4 bucks cause I didn’t want any desserts on the set lunch menu. What a sweet ending to the meal :)

When I had this, I thanked God for the French's invention of their onion soup. French onion soup is the most delicious soup in the world.

$46 ala carte

This superb rack of welsh lamb is cooked to a perfect medium rare and the flavour of the meat shines. The fat cap is nicely rendered and the meat is very succulent. Overall, lamb that could proudly be served at a Michelin ⭐ restaurant. The roasted garlic, endive and potato gratin on the side are mediocre but we would still strongly recommend meat lovers to try this dish.
