Le Cuisson : Affordable French Food III

The 3rd part of the affordable french food series is none other than Le Cuisson, a hawker stall in Holland Drive near Buona Vista MRT, selling French food at a really good deal. The chef used to be work under DB Bistro at MBS and you know that the quality of the food here will not go too wrong.

Even though I was aware of the limited menu, I forgot that many ingredients like fish were not available immediately after the CNY holiday. Hence the disappointment upon hearing that the Australian Barramundi Fillet was not available. Nonetheless, we started with a refreshing Smoked Duck Salad $5 that was simple but done well with the right amount of cheese.

I added $1 for the additional Truffled Oil for the $8 Mushroom Cream Pasta. It was one of the best pasta ever had in Singapore, no joke. The portion is generous and not too dry. We poked the runny egg and mixed everything up like Rojak. The taste was so good that it even convinced those who don't really like western food. Highly recommend this dish..plus the oil :)
The beef ragout with ravioli was not available and thus we went for the Angus Hampshire Beef with Crushed Potatoes, Confit Shallots and Garlic ($18) . The chef shared with us that it was medium rare but we felt that perhaps the fire was inconsistent as half was  overdoned and tough while the remaining meat was still pinkish. The mash potato was undeniably as good as DB bistro, Saveur and many other places:)

Meanwhile, the Sous Vide Pork Neck with crushed corn & mash $15 was lightly seasoned and slightly chewy. I appreciate that the Pork Neck was done Sous Vide because it is healthier and retains some juicyness.  That said, while the meat mains are fairly decent, as a "fishy" person, I will still pick fish if I return. There is also no chicken on the menu.
Although the main courses here around the same price as Saveur and cheaper than Poulet, it was a pity that there was no desserts were on the menu (guess it will add on to the preparation time) Nonetheless, I think this place is really ideal for the French fix and the chef here deserves our support. Do note that the menu changes.
