Poulet French Restaurant (Bugis+)

Poulet is a new alfresco French causal dining restaurant opened by Thai Express in Bugis+ (former iluma). The name of this new restaurant, Poulet is a French word, which means chicken when translated. As you may guess from the name of the restaurant, it specialises in Poulet Roti (Roasted Chicken) served with home-made Mushroom Chardonnay Sauce. In addition, it aims to serve affordable French cuisine to the masses. With a open kitchen concept, diners can watch the chefs in action while they indulge in their meals. 
Country Side Mushroom Soup $5.80
The Country Side Mushroom Soup consisted of cream of Wild Mushrooms and Idaho Potato. It was delectable, full of fragrant mushroom flavour with mushrooms bits in creamy sauce. Remind me of Tao's Restaurant's version. 
French Onion Soup $5.80
The French Onion Soup was served with caramelised French Onion and Fond De Veau served with Cheese Croutons. I am not an expert in French Onion Soup, felt that it was a tad too sweet for me. But I certainly like the generous amount of caramelised onion given that ensure each mouthful was accompanied by  caramelised onion.
Escargot de Bourgogne $8.80
Escargot de Bourgogne consisted of half dozen Burgundy Snails served with Tomato Fondue and Almond Garlic Butter. At $8.80, it is quite reasonably priced. I felt that the flavour was not strong enough and as the flavour did not infused into the escargot.
Poulet Roti (Whole) $28.80
Poulet Roti, their signature roasted chicken was well executed. The bird was brined for a day in a traditional recipe before being placed in the rotisserie for a slow roast. It was superbly tender and moist. With the creamy home-made Mushroom Chardonnay Sauce, it was lip smacking! Worth a try.
Tiramisu $7.80
Tiramisu an Italian dessert was made from Mascarpone Cheese, Sponge Finger soaked in Espresso and Rum Syrup. The Tiramisu made freshly on a daily basis was served in a glass container. Thumbs up for the  presentation. This is a must order, nicely executed. 

For a restaurant that has opened for just 1 month, I am won over by the food. During my visit on a weekday lunch hour, the restaurant was full. Service wise, there is room for improvement. It was hard to catch the attention of the staff during the lunch period. As for price, I personally thought that it was quite value for money for food of this quality.

    1. it really depends on individual person. I would say yes, but if you are a small eater, then you might want to share.
