SIN: Poulèt

Frankly speaking, that was my virgin experience with oxtails!

Closely related to the previous post, Poulèt is a casual French eatery managed by Minor Food Group. It's an irony though that despite its name which means 'chicken' in English, I didn't actually try any of their chicken dishes.

Poulèt has set its first debut at Bugis+. At the point of writing, there are six branches across the island. Two more are coming soon.

French Onion Soup S$5.80
Taste: 8/10

For a start, I had a heart-warming French onion soup which had adequate amount of caramelised onion slices. There was nothing to complain about it which also came with a bit of cheese croutons, though it'd be better if it were thicker.

Braise de Canard S$15.80
Taste: 8/10

Tender would be the appropriate adjective to describe the braised duck leg. The somewhat sweet sauce was made of red wine, accompanied by carrot, baby spinach, glazed shallots and cranberries. Well, I know I'm comparing an apple with an orange, but I still prefer the duck confit from Saveur.

Oxtail de Burguignon S$15.80
Taste: 8/10

I'd say my very first experience with oxtails wasn't bad at all. Those pressure-cooked back parts of the beef were fatty and gelatinous, which made the sauce thicker. They were good, really, but not extraordinary.

Banana Bread Pudding S$4.90
Taste: 8.5/10

The banana bread pudding came to the table piping hot, probably just came out of the oven, sitting in contrast to the vanilla ice cream which melted pretty quickly as a result. I'd rather have one that had been aired for a short period of time though. Having said that, the banana aroma wafting through the air was truly heady. It was pretty much a good ending to the meal.

Melon's Rating
Taste: 8/10
Ambience: 7.5/10
Service: 7/10
Overall: 7.5/10

The food was decent, but there was nothing much to shout about. Perhaps I should really try the chicken. Pika's advice: I've heard that their tiramisu is good. You may want to give it a try!
