Au Petit Salut Restaurant Review

: You can't miss the sign in flowing script as you drive along Holland Road, but accessing the building in which Au Petit Salut is housed can be a bit complicated, requiring a turn into Singapore's former army barracks. The main dining room looks smart with a dark parquet floor, floor-to-ceiling glass windows and an exposed brick wall adorned with artwork. A casual meal, executive lunch or romantic dinner can all be accommodated thanks to the menu of traditional bistro favorites: baked Burgundy snails doused with heaps of pungent garlic in a butter and diced tomato base; and lightly pan-seared duck foie gras that will take diners straight to Périgord, creatively presented with strawberries, green apple and balsamic syrup. Among main courses, opt for the bountiful cassoulet, a white bean stew of duck leg confit, pork sausage, bacon and lamb shoulder, or for something lighter, try the baked black cod served on a bed of quinoa, with mussels and spicy chorizo in a fragrant saffron aïoli and crustacean froth. Desserts include fluffy buns filled with vanilla ice cream, with chocolate sauce and sliced almonds, or warm Valrhona chocolate cake topped with dark chocolate sorbet, red currant jam and pistachios. The French-centric wine list comprises around 100 labels.
