No experience whatsoever with French cuisine, we decided to go to somewhere that isn’t too intimidating. Got to know about La Petite Cuisine since I used to pass by Serene Centre quite often. A small and modest French restaurant that places its tables at unbelievably awkward corners, I suppose some people would close an eye because there’s no GST and service charge here :P
Looking through the menu, Escargots on Croissant ($13) seemed like a good choice for our starter. It might sound a little gross but the snails did taste a little raw even though it was marinated with herbs and garlic. Kinda felt as though we were eating snails straight out of their shells. Loved the croissant idea though!
We are not sure how French this is but the Dory with Rice ($12) was quite decent. The fish was pan-fried till its crisp at the sides. Butter rice was very fragrant.
Since it was my first time eating a Confit de Canard ($16.50), I honestly don’t know what to expect. Haha. Ok anyway I found the skin of the duck confit slightly crisp on the outside and it was remarkably tender on the inside. As for the duck meat, some parts were a little too dry. Apart from that, it was fine.
Definitely not an intimidating experience for us. La Petite Cuisine is the place to go to for reasonably priced French cuisine!
