Antoinette: Parisian Pattiserie & Salon de thé in Singapore
May 11, 2012 § Leave a comment
Furnished like a classic chateau in France, Antoinette in Penhas Road, Singapore offers a chichi high-tea venue with delicious, delicately-concocted sweets and savouries.
Named after the last queen of France, Marie-Antoinette, the restaurant boasts fine French food in the heart of Jalan Besar. Antoinette showcases the luscious dishes that are carefully crafted by Chef Pang Kok Keong.
The moment you enter Antoinette’s door, you will be greeted by enormous meringues and other sweets!
The interior of Antoinette is filled with dainty and chic furniture – it kind of transports you at a different place and time.
The Food at Antoinette in Singapore
We started off the crepe’s thicker counter part, the Blini. The French Thick Pancakes were paired with some smoked salmon and sour cream. It could’ve been better if they were more fluffy.
Next was one of Antoinette’s savoury crepe – Concorde. Light crepe filled with roasted chicken and bacon, served with a creamy morsel mushroom sauce on the side. It has bacon and mushrooms – what’s not to love? 🙂
The Parisian gnocchi in tomato sauce and sauteed mushrooms – Gnocchi Forestiere.
This is definitely the star of the show – Antoinette’s Boeuf Bourguignon. Braised Wagyu brisket in red wine, it’s so tender, all you need is a fork. I loved how flavourful and moist the beef is.
Desserts are definitely one of Antoinette’s strength. Antoinette (photo on top) is a milk chocolate mousse infused with earl grey tea and a raspberry coulis encapsulated with a red and glittery membrane. We also had the Chocolicieux (photo above) which is a 66% dark chocolate cream with hazelnut nougatine.
Reservation is a definite must as it really gets packed especially on weekends.
