Poulet (pronounced as poo-lay) is a new French casual dining restaurant tucked away at Bugis +. Besides their speciality dish, the restaurant is also known for its braised duck, escargots and oxtail de Bourguignon. If you are looking for affordable (under $20) and reasonable French cuisine, look no further and try Poulet.


Poulet Roti, which simply means grilled chicken, is the speciality dish that we have to try at this up and rising French bistro. Tearing the flesh away from the bone may not be as easy as compared to the braised duck, but it is definitely easier then usual. At first bite, I could easily taste the savoury marinade of the meat which is surprisingly tender to chew. Not forgetting the restaurant’s home-made mushroom chardonnay sauce. This was what made the dish so interesting and addictive. Maybe because I have a thing for mushroom, but this dish got me wanting for more. In my opinion, the chicken meat and the special sauce had a seamless partnership to satisfy my taste buds and tummy.


Most would know that duck is not the speciality dish at Poulet. But this dish, Braise de Canard, struck me the most. The duck is so soft and tender, a few gentle swipes of your knife will de-bone the duck leg, making it easier for you to enjoy the meat with the sweet wine sauce. Accompanied with cranberry and glazed shallot, the sauce brings out the best in the duck meat. I may not know much about French cuisine, but this dish is winning me over.

PouletDo not be deceived by its sweet and innocent appearance. This Soy Bean Panna Cotta is just almond jelly with longan in disguise. I was pretty disappointed with the dessert. I’m sure I can make something like this, or even better.
