food adventures with @alfred.seng led us to @summerhill.sg. This new restaurant has just been open for a month or so, and serves french food in a bistro (read: cozy but cramped) setting. tried their signature french roast chicken and pork collar. I was surprised at how juicy the chicken breast was, and the pork collar was similarly tender. the pork came with a dijon mustard infused cream sauce. it had a floral aroma that i cannot place, but paired well with the pork and the accompanying sides of baby potatoes and kohlrabi slaw.
at $23 for a half chicken and $25 for the pork without gst or service charge, prices are pretty reasonable for the standard of cooking! I would come back to try their other items on the menu! eyeing their croque monsieur and rib roast 🤤

From Summer Hill, which takes over the former spot of The Tiny Roaster at Sunset Way — the place serves up affordable French cuisine in the neighbourhood with no service charge or GST. The menu here is limited to a few items; seemingly carefully curated, featuring only Croque Monsieur, Poulet Roti and a Pork Collar dish alongside pastries and bakes on the menu.

Really liked the Croque Monsieur which would make a really good brunch item to have; toasted bread that's crusty, yet light and fluffy that's a little garlicky with a hint of cheesiness and mustard, the textures gel well together with how the ham is substantially thick and provides a good bite when had together with the other elements going on in here. While the Croque Monsieur is a commonly available dish that is served in cafes that offer other brunchy and eggy items, this is a version that is certainly not only refined, but seem to carry finesse in its execution with attention to detail.
