Singapore: L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon

L'Amuse-Bouche - foie gras custard with port wine and parmesan foam

La Langoustine - crispy langoustin fritter with basil pistou

I can't remember the name of this dish

Le Burger - beef and foie gras burger with caramelized bell pepper

L'os A Moelle - bone marrow spiced with a hint of mustard on toast

Pommes Puree - Robuchon's famous mash potatoes, light and creamy.

Le Souffle - hot calvados souffle

Caramel Ice Cream

By far, L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon in Singapore was the most expensive Robuchon outlet I've ever been to. I thought our lunch at Joel Robuchon Monaco burned a hole in my wallet. Nevertheless, we were surely entertained by listening in on the Executive Chef (the only French guy) scolding the all Asian staff. I couldn't help but hold in my laugh when I heard, "Stop, stop! You're burning the foie gras!"

The staff was a little green but that's how it is when you open a new restaurant in another country. But there was a veteran among the staff. The head sommelier from Las Vegas was reassigned here and we got to chat with him for a bit. I actually remembered him from our previous dinners in Las Vegas. Small world!

I had a goal to visit each and every Robuchon restaurant around the world but at this rate, that dream may have ended in Singapore.
