Mon Bijou

Mon Bijou, Orchard, Singapore.
It is located at Claymore Connect, the French cafe serves all day breakfast, lunch and desserts. I was tasked to check out what to ate for lunch when both princesses just woke up from their beauty sleep. A quick search from the Internet, sethlui.com recommends this French cafe as it has something great to try. Since, we are nearby, we just walk over and we are greeted with their friendly waiter.

I start with translating the name Mon Bijou to English, it means My Jewel. I quite agreed with it, this place is a hidden gem.

The chef recommendations list on the menu includes this MB Crabby Patty burger serves with mango salsa and fries. Food presentation is good, taste for the crab patty is good too. My friend likes the mango salsa.

The second chef recommendation is the Truffle Scrambled Egg with toasts, hash brown and sausages. I wanted to smell the truffle after seeing a TV programme sometime ago. Just curious how it is actually smell when we cook it with our food. I quite like the two-tone toast (black and white toast), I cannot be sure what is the favour of the black colour, and online search, some says it is squid ink. And, then the hash brown used to be handmade, however, the hash brown that I got that day was those frozen ones.

The third chef recommendation under the same menu is the Spaghetti Carbonara which my friend ordered. She says it is really nice 🙂  Overall, the food here is delicious and worth to try. All food served after waiting for some 15 to 20 minutes, I believe they prepare the food with ‘heart’.

For drinks, we choose three different drink, the healthy green juice consists of the green apple, celery and cucumber, the mango smoothie and mocha.

Poulet

Poulet, Singapore.
Amazing French Roast Chicken.

Dinner time with two lovely girls. They picked this restaurant and it was my first visit. Being the first timer, I let both of the girls to pick the best ones, however, it was a little late when we reached the restaurant and some of the dishes finished.

We ordered the classic lemonade and ginger lemonade. The top view of the drink looks pretty good with the restaurant’s name as the background. I have no idea why the ginger lemonade has a piece of mint on it.

The two girls ordered the countryside mushroom soup, creamy and tasty.

I try something different that what is recommended. The Pissaladière – it is a classic dish from Provence.  I tried the Pissaladière de Poulét,  a puff pastry with its golden crust that was crispy to the bite. It has two types, I chose the chicken and another one is the mushroom. It is something unique to me, light yet filling.

My friend chose the signature dish, Poulet. The chicken or the drumstick looks tenders with the thick sauce on it. I believe it must be a very nice dish and it has a very good review on it.

Next, my another friend ordered the Salad de Canard Fume, a garden salad with smoked duck slices and raspberry dressing. The orange wedges and roasted pine nuts lent it a tangy flavour.

Since it was getting late and we did not spend much time to enjoy the food and drink to the fullnest. However, it is still a good dining experience here. Next time, if I visit the restaurant again, I will make sure I will try the Poulet and be there early to enjoy the signature dish to the fullness.

Miam Miam

Miam Miam – A Japanese French restaurant locates at the Tampines One Shopping Mall. We discovered it by accident on one of the Friday’s afternoon lunch after trying to redeem some freebie for our Puma Night Run 2015. Yea, it was some time ago. I realised that I have not written my reviews on this restaurant.

It did take quite some time for 4 of us to decide what we wanted to eat. It looked very delicious for each of the item in the menu. And, we decided to order our own meal and added on with desserts. It is really a very satisfying lunch session.

While waiting for our food, one of my colleagues eager to learn how to take food pictures to share to his friends. Therefore, we all took out our phones and started to snap all the way. From the plain water to coffee, we tried a few shots.

And I randomly took the interior and crowd in this restaurant. It is pretty okay business for them during the lunch time. The restaurant setting is considered as simple but I do not so like to have too many light bulbs.Below is the group picture of our food for the day including main dishes, drinks and desserts.


Their signature dish, the Miam Miam Spaghetti. The spaghetti cooked al-dente and the ingredients were enough for each bite. The ingredients include the bacon strips, the soft boiled egg, some tomatoes and vegetable. The taste is just alright for myself, it is not too salty because of having the bacons. Do mix the soft boiled egg together before start eating.

After mixing it, my colleague told me, the spaghetti has turned into a plate of Cantonese Fried Noodle. Another spaghetti that you may wish to try is the Riz Noir Squid Ink Pasta.

Next, the Souffle De Nuage. To be honest, I have no idea what is this dish and I have to get the description from the Internet, “Home-style fresh tomato sautéed rice topped with fluffy clouds of egg and cheese.”

The fluffy clouds of egg and cheese on the top makes it very presentable. Lastly, it is our desserts, the Chocolate Souffle. It is really melt in my mouth. Great piece.

French toasts which you cannot get it wrong at any restaurants.
