Poulet : Amazing French Roast Chicken in Great World City, Singapore

Bonjour!

It's the start of the week and soon we'll be bidding April goodbye and will be say hello to May! 2013 is flying by sooooooo fast! :o

Anyway, let me tell you about our delicious French dinner last night. Normally, it takes me days weeks..okay fine, even months to blog about a restaurant (apologies for that..backlog is Terrible and that's with a capital T), but this one was just too yummy for me to prolong the wait.

Dinner was at Poulet, a casual French restaurant with a couple of branches here in Singapore. I've been hearing about this restaurant and their delicious roast chicken from my equally food-loving flatmates and friends. So there was that excitement and anticipation as we were asked to wait for about 15 minutes for our table to be ready.

Paul and I decided to choose two main dishes to share. Poulet (poo-lay) means chicken in French thus it makes perfect sense to go for the Poulet Roti (Half: S$15.80 / Whole: S$28.80) which is their house specialty. We tried the half serving and my husband Paul was just so sweet that he gave the dark meat portion to me! I don't like chicken breast, you see, as I always find it too dry and bland for my taste. The meat was very tender and what I love was the creamy mushroom chardonnay sauce which contributed to the umami-ness of this dish. It was very good and a visit to Poulet will not be complete without having this. I noticed that they have a new variation though, the Poulet de Cranberry. From the photo it looks like something that would be perfect for Thanksgiving Day but I don't think I'm waiting till November to have this.

We also tried the Iberico Pork Belly with French Mustard (S$15.80). Let me tell you what I love most about this dish -- the mashed potato. If you like creamy, melt-in-your-mouth-and-let-your-heart-flutter-kind of mashed potato, then this one is for you. Sadly though, the serving is just good as a side dish to the pork belly so if you want more, do get one order for better enjoyment (read: potato nirvana). The pork belly was pretty good too but I was somehow turned off with the thick layer of pork fat which I accidentally bit into as the entire thing is covered with think brown sauce. The meat was fork-tender and I highly recommend that you generously spread the french mustard on the pork as it really gives a different dimension to it.

Lastly, we had Tiramisu (S$7.80) fror dessert. Normally, this wouldn't be the first dessert I'd immediately pick from the menu. However, after hearing Oliver's raves about it, then we knew we just have to give it a try. The serving was big enough for the 5 of us to share. With our long spoons, we dug into a wide glass bottle and what I love about it was how fluffy and light the chiffon cake was. I would have preferred for it to have a stronger espresso taste though.

It was such a fun night and I am already planning my next few visits to Poulet soon!

Poulet is located at the 2nd level Great World City, 1 Kim Seng Promenade, Singapore. They also have branches at Bugis+, Chinatown Point, Jurong Point and soon at Vivo City too! Call them at +65-67334395 (Great World City branch).
