Dinner @ Au Jardin // CLOSED

January 22, 2009 in French by thywhaleliciousfay

Normally, if I dont update my list of ‘Where next to try out’, my friend and I would spend at least 15 minutes trying to think of a place to have our dinner while driving aimlessly (Though my friend always drives in the direction of town. Haha). But this time round, he was quick in thinking of heading back to Botanic Gardens to try the other restaurant there! And so we went to Au Jardin. =)

And from the menu, we ordered:-


Complimentary Starter


His Hors D’oeuvre: Alaskan King Crab (A la plancha with pickled radish, avocado mousse)


My Hors D’oeuvre: Duck Liver (Pan seared, mission figs, vanilla & palm sugar)


Our Entree: Hokkaido Scallops (Free range egg cooked at 62′ C, truffle cream)


His Viande: Blackmore Wagyu Brisket (Braised, truffled onions)


My Viande: Pigeon (Smoked, seared foie gras, black turnip cream)


His Dessert: Chocolate Mousse (Citrus fruits)


My Dessert: Pear (Carpaccio, pear sorbet)


Complimentary Dessert

And this time, I remembered to bring my camera. Yeah! Haha. And I like the place alot! A colonial house tucked behind greenery on a small hill. They even provide those golf taxi to fetch/bring you from/to the main gate, but we chose to walk. =)

Food:
Everything was pleasantly nice except for my pigeon. I opted for medium well, but it came too raw. I guess pigeons are better taken well done
Service:
First class. One of the best standards that I’ve received!
Ambience:

Must Try: Hokkaido Scallops
