Erm, kinda difficult to appreciate this dish. Incredibly jelat from the thick tasteless cream(it's not even a cream sauce anymore, it's straight up thickened cream)

The small portion is more than enough for sharing. I doubt most of us not accustomed to French cuisine can take more than a few spoonfuls of this. The ravioles? was thin and filled with chives and cheese, the moistness is balanced but the taste is super mild due to the ratio of filling to skin.

The florets of Tete de Moine were delicious though, very savoury with a slight funk. I don't think it's bad, but I can't appreciate this dish much

Nothing surprising in terms of flavours but it's really not very good when it's cold. The crispy parts turn hard and it's not as flavourful. Should be much better when it's fresh out of the oven

Such a rich and deep beefy flavour from the beef cheeks. Goes so well with the Al dente pasta and although the eggs add a layer of creaminess as well as amplifies the parmesan, I actually prefer the pasta without the egg since the flavour of the beef cheeks shine through more. A must try when you're here

Eggs were done perfectly and steak was medium(u don't get a choice). Luckily it was passably tender and incredibly juicy. How did they get so much juice in the steak?? Again served with the nice buttered toasts

Note that even when only the brunch menu is available(meaning you can't order from all day dining), the soups are still available

Buttery and filled with seafood umami, the soup is on the lighter side in terms of flavour but the seafood was quite fresh, esp the well seasoned baby octopus. Buttered toasts were also really nice to soak up with soup with. Personally I prefer a bouillabaisse with deeper flavours but this satisfied nonetheless.

Sauce was unique but not really life changing. The steak was a leaner cut so it might not be as tender as what people are used to. But for such a meaty cut it's still acceptably tender

Skin wasn't very crispy esp since it was drizzled with the chicken jus. The chicken was also lightly seasoned but all was well because of the incredible chicken jus. Chicken bones are low cooked over 2 days with roasted garlic before being reduced, resulting in a superbly umami jus that makes any chicken palatable. The gratin was also q lovely, being rather creamy and well seasoned on top but it could get heavy. While the salad is slightly bitter, the celery leaves were a nice touch

They even ask u if u want another serving once you're done with the first lol. Very crunchy crust!

Also, for the set the sauce is served by the side, instead of the chicken resting on the sauce. Which is obviously better since u get the chicken is all its glory and can decide how much sauce goes on it

For 6++ more u get nicely roasted veggies and fries.

Makes sense that garlic bread is available as an add-on to the onion soup. Doesn't really soak up much soup but that's cos it's rather crispy!
