Au Chocolat – Dinner

I’ve wanted to try this place for the longest time and today’s finally the day. I think among all restaurants in Marina Bay Sands, this should be the most wallet friendly, non-chain restaurant. The set up was quite cutesy and I feel that this is more like a girly place than a place to go on a date.

Pan seared foie gras – $5.00++

For Monday to Wednesday they are having a foie gras promotion where a piece of pan seared foie gras costs only $5.00++ if you order any main course. The quality (it should be duck) was alight but the cooking technique could be improved as the doneness was not even, especially if it was a thinner piece.

Steak Frites – $42.00++

I ordered the steak frites which is angus ribeye served with truffle fries, salad and chocolate red wine sauce. They could have advised on the portion because I don’t see how one person can finish this. The beef itself was alright in terms of quality, but for cooking technique they could really improve on that as the doneness was badly executed.

As for the fries, I personally liked it. It is skin on fries and very crispy. The truffle flavour was not tossed evenly but that didn’t really matter to me. At least they got the fries right.

Overall, I would return again but if I do get steak I’ll definitely share it. Perhaps the duck confit would be a better choice.

Ambiance: 7.5/10

Food: 7.5/10

Value: 7.5/10

Overall: not the best French bistro but due to the variety they offer I think I would return.
