Came for the lunch set and it was a great experience from the moment I entered the restaurant. The service, food and ambience was really good! Will definitely recommend to friends and even for business lunch.
The restaurant was small and unpretentious hence good for a casual or business meal. The food was by no means casual. Foei gras was a sizeable portion - larger than most other places would offer. Set lunch @ $32.++ was a good deal and the food was of a high standard and aesthetically presented.
Great food as always. It was a bit busy as they were training staff for the new restaurant at MBS. The sambal prawn capellini is heavenly.
For fine French dining with a relaxed atmosphere in Singapore, look no further than Grignoter by Chef Justin Quek in Chinatown. We recommend starting things off with the Japanese Yellowtail Carpaccio, served with fresh grated fennel and lemon vinaigrette. The French duck foie gras confit served on melba toast is also out of this world. For mains at Grignoter by Chef Justin Quek, you simply have to order the Blanquette de Veau-braised veal with white truffle cream sauce or the charcoal grill Steak Frites for a truly French culinary experience. Then, if you have any room for dessert you can go one of two ways – order the cheese board to share, or go full greedy guts with the JQ Floating Island served with caramelised crispy rice, raspberry coulis, praline and vanilla sauce all to yourself! Grignoter by Chef Justin Quek’s concise menu manages to incorporate all that you would want in a French wine bar. And while, Singapore’s Chinatown is a hub of activity, this serene oasis of calm on Teck Lim Road will soon become your new favourite spot!
