Wifey left office rather late today and met me at Upper Thomson in the hope of having more food options in the late hours. We found that La Petite was rather quiet and empty tonight and since we had a pretty good experience the first time we tried it, we decided to give it another go!
La Petite Cuisine has 2 branches with the other one being at Serene Centre (strangely we walked past the Serene Centre branch twice last year and it looked like it’s closed down). They served quite affordable French cuisine and do not charge service charge and GST. Decor and ambiance is homely with red-white checkered table cloth, French paintings on the walls, and free-flow of self-service water. Menu is a simple piece of paper and you need to order and pay at the counter before food is served to you. There are indoor seats (6 tables) and alfresco seats along the walkway just outside the restaurant.
We ordered a Salmon Salad, Sirloin Steak with French Fries & Salad, and the Confit de Canard with Gratin. Two hot buns and butter were served immediately after we ordered while we waited for the salad and mains.
The Salmon Salad had 3 slices of salmon placed on a bed of green garden salad, and topped with some kind of sauce or dressing. The salmon was seared lightly and was juicy while the garden salad gave the crunch to the dish.
The Sirloin Steak was done medium-rare and still maintained the bloody interior which I liked. I preferred to have a bigger piece though, haha. The duck skin in the Duck Confit with Potato Gratin which wifey ordered was still crispy and delicious, but somehow the flavour did not seem to blend together as well as the previous time…
