over the last 1/2year my RI friends started doing birthdays for the group of us who meet often, now designated as brotherhood in the group chat…back to high school…haha! ^^
our RI default paparazzi photographer is the permanently appointed organiser who organises birthday lunches plus a birthday gift… 🙂
this time our tai tai kor (big boss man) recommended the lunch venue = french table at waterway point.
this my first time to french table.
it has 3 outlets = waterway point, northpoint & west coast plaza.
there is a 4-course set lunch menu.
soup of the day for the set lunch was a clear vegetable soup. i tried. it was nondescript.
S$2 top-up gets you a cream of mushrrom soup. this was good standard, creamy & flavourful.
i decided to go for the key pride of french table ie the duck confit. this one came with linguine. 🙂
duck skin was excellent, very crispy, duck was flavourful. the pasta also very nice & flavourful.
texture though was on the dry side & sinewy, not moist.
there were 4 orders of sirloin steak which came with a supplement of S$3.90 = so total S$16.80!
steak was quite bad la! tough & quite tendonous, basically an inferior cut of meat.
the vongole linguine on the other hand, was simply fabulous!
the 2 pastas were all superbly done al dente. this one of the better vongoles I had taken.
we added 2 ala carte orders of chicken wings. quite ok, nothing to crow about la! ^^
the 4-course set came with a drink = iced ocha or iced lemon tea.
and ice cream for dessert.
overall at S$12.90 for the 4-course set, it was very good value. specially when the vongole dish was quite outstanding.
the steak is to be avoided.
for ala carte (since i really do not need to have the drink or dessert of soup for that matter), i stick to their key pride – the duck confit & it was pretty good.
& maybe can try the clams & mussel soup linguine.
