went back to les amis for lunch on 22.7.2014.
the 4-course set lunch was excellent the last time i came on 1.4.2014. 🙂 & today again it did not disappoint. 🙂
wife ordered 1/2 bottle white pinot noir.
the bread basket was good. baguette, brioche & sour dough were all good. the roll wife said not good. i did not try.
#1 the crispy langoustine was excellent packed with meat tasted just like very tender lobster, & it was such a large helping.
#2 the foie gras was kind of monstrous. & it was very good too. so was the smoked eel (super!) & cherries.
#3 the 2 main course options were wild scottish salmon confit & tartare OR beef tartare. beef tartare is 1 of my favourites for appetiser. this one though was a main & it was quite tasty. this preparation had quite a bit of herb. it was very good but i would prefer to have less herb & a more dominant sweet tasting beef.
the salmon confit & tartare was very good as well. a poached or baked salmon tends to be more chunky. this confit was medium rare & had a bit of the texture of cured salmon or sashimi. very nice. 🙂
beef tartare came with a good french fries.
#4 the dessert of the day was very good too. 🙂
I really like the quality set lunch here, and it offered good value at S$45++pax, similarly to their sister outlet au jardin which had regrettably ceased operations.
