I found my another favourite bistro!
I’m sure most of you, tourists or not tourists have heard about Marina Bay Sands. Up till today, it is claimed as the most spectacular hotel with its infinity pool and and breathtaking views. The Shoppes is homes for high-end brands and good food.
Just at one end of the Shoppes building, you can find this Singapore French-inspired concept bistro called Au Chocolat. It is divided into 2 sections, the retail store with its wide selection of sweets, chocolates and candy and the dining bistro. Since the concept is French-inspired, the whole store is decorated in a French-ambience interior.
I’ve been to this bistro more than once, but only recently had the idea to put it up here. What is unique here is that most of their dishes is infused with chocolate.
Their Truffle Fries is a must to order. It is actually one of the best truffle fries in Singapore. (PS Cafe finally found a strong competitor). Served with mayonnaise and BBQ dips, the fries seasoned with truffle sea salts and drizzled with white truffle oil. Love its generous serving too 🙂
Their Benedict is pretty different. It is still perfectly poached eggs atop bacon, spinach, tomatoes, but served on top of English muffin. Then hollandaise sauce infused with red wine and dark chocolate is poured on top of it. Yummy!
In their menu, the Homemade Garlic Herb Pesto Pasta with Prawns is one of the Chef’s recommendation. I should be disagree on this. Despite of the presentation looks appetising, the pasta was bland. But I appreciated their generous serving of fat and crunchy prawns.
Their Au Chocolate Mocha Pork Ribs are served with coleslaw and fries. The ribs are perfectly roasted and coated with the combination of dark chocolate and coffee sauce! It gives a distinctive taste compared to regular ribs which normally marinated in BBQ sauce. Au Chocolate’s one is sweeter with a hint of coffee.
Another menu that I think worth to try is the Duck Confit. The duck thigh is pan-roasted and served with potato mash, vegetables and top with a tangy chocolate orange sauce. What I love the most is the juicy and soft duck meat inside, but crispy outside. The potato mash is also not too creamy, moist, perfectly mashed.
