You know what is round the corner when the halls are decked! Christmas is one of my favourite festive season of the year as it oozes of warm giving spirit and endless feasting! Speaking of which, we were kindly invited by Poulet for a sampling of their festive Ap-pear-licious Menu.
It is just irresistible when they put all my favourite ingredients in the new dishes!
First up, their all-time favourite Poulet Roti (it’s French for “roast chicken” not our local understanding of “roti bread”) with caramelized apple sauce (S$17.90++ for 1/2 and S$30.90++ for whole). If you enjoyed their original Poulet in brown sauce with bacon and mushroom, this will surprise you with a tinge of sweetness. The fresh chickens are still brined for a full day in the Chef’s secret recipe but the sauces caters to different taste buds.
One word – I like all their Poulet Roti dishes I tried thus far; no wonder it’s their speciality. Try this for a change during the festive season! 🙂
If you are going with company and haven’t gotten enough of the cinnamon apple fix, try the Cinnamon Apple Winglets with Homemade Fresh Apple Dip (Top up $5.90++ with purchase of any main course). Most dips I tried before are savoury; the Chef decided to innovate with a sweet apple dip as an interesting twist. These are once again marinated before breaded and fried.
The creamy apple dip was a good accompaniment to the wings which otherwise was too “breaded” for my liking. For those who dislike cinnamon, honestly, the taste is really mild. As a fan of the spice, I would prefer more cinnamon! 😀
Kids would love this dish I am sure!
And of course, every meal has to end with dessert! With us this season is the Rustic French Pear & Apple Tart (S$8.90++). Sandwiched between 2 crispy puff pastry is a generous serving of classic French Vanilla Ice-cream with pear and apple bits. Of all the desserts on the menu, this is actually my favourite! It might be the feel-good Christmas spirit, but anything that has strong contrasting textures always go down well with me. GREAT combination I say! 🙂
Pair the above dishes with a refreshing new drink – Blood Orange & Minty Cucumber Cooler (S$4.90++). This is a thirst-quenching combination and do crush up the vegetables if you prefer a bolder taste (that’s me). 🙂
For families of young children, I think you will definitely be able to find something suitable for your young ones in the menu. When all else fails, don’t worry, remember there is still the all pleasing (French) Fries. 🙂
Have you been to one of Poulet’s latest outlet at The Kallang Wave (next to the Sports Hub)?
It is a cozy place with Parisian ambiance. You won’t miss it with the iconic Paris Tower decked in black and white. 🙂
Hope you will enjoy the festive menu like we did! For a preview of other dishes on their menu, check out our earlier review here. When you dine at Poulet, do remember to join their online contest to win a premium land tour for 2 to the romantic country of France. More details here.
This is early – but an advance greeting: MERRIEST BLESSED CHRISTMAS to all! :O)
