I’ve tried both Joël Robuchon restaurants in Singapore and L’Atelier failed to impress. However, I believed that the one in Paris would be much better and decided to try it here. L’Atelier Saint-Germain de Joël Robuchon was awarded with 2 Michelin Stars and is ranked 24 in the World’s 50 Best Restaurants list.
I made my reservation online and it was pretty fuss free. Not many Parisian restaurants allows online reservations.
For the meal at L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon in Singapore, I had the degustation menu and it turned out less than satisfactory. For this meal, I decided to go ala carte.
L’AUBERGINE – 24 €
This was egg plant stacked with mozerella and it was recommended by the staff.
Sea Bream Carpaccio
This isn’t in the menu and is a seasonal special. It was better than most seafood carparccios I’ve tried and it tastes as good as it looks.
L’OEUF – 23 €
Egg cocotte topped with light wild mushroom cream
This was also recommended to me by the staff and I liked this because it was something new.
Chilled Tomato Soup
L’OS A MOELLE – 26 €
This was bone marrow on toast. The bone marrow squishy, soft and creamy. However, it can get overly oily and a bit too much to handle after a while (aka jelat). Bone marrow is a good alternative to foie gras in my opinion.
LE BLACK ANGUS – 44 €
No faults could be found with this steak (not that faults should be expected from an award winning restaurant like this).
The meal here was good and nothing short of expectations, comparable to the other Michelin starred restaurants I had in London. However, Paris is full of good food and you can probably get a comparably interesting meal for less.\
