Chez Petit Salut (Marina Bay Financial Centre) – Food Review

1612-1

I never knew about this restaurant that is situated right below my office on the first floor (lift lobby). It’s located along the same row as dr. CAFE COFFEE, somewhere in the middle. The signboard is small and reflective, as you can see. If not for my colleagues, I never would have known that this restaurant even exists!

1612-2

We were seated right at the back of the restaurant. The staff promptly cleared the 4th set of cutley (it was just 3 of us) and set the decoration pieces nicely in front of me ๐Ÿ™‚ how’s that for ensuring the most perfect ambience?

1612-3

Their set lunch menu – there are plenty of choices (half of which you need to top up an extra amount of money). 3 courses for $39++ – quite an expensive set lunch!

1612-4

It’s a very small restaurant, but coz it has a high ceiling, the noise level wasn’t too bad. Can u see me? ๐Ÿ˜‰

1612-5

LINES.

1612-6

Their warm water (which was really very warm – GOOD) – I used to make lattes with this kind of glasses!

1612-7

This was my appetiser – sauteed wild mushrooms with spinach – very good – loved the crunchy spinach leaves and pine nuts ๐Ÿ™‚

1612-8

Hui Mee’s half-dozen escargots in garlic butter. Every bit of the garlic butter gravy was gone, coz Hui Mee dipped her bread roll in it. I did it when i was at Les Bouchons (Club Street) as well – sinful but unforgettable!

1612-9

Their bread roll, piping hot from the oven – which i obediently avoided.

1612-10

My main course – chicken breast with french beans – i tell u, the chicken breast tasted so magically un-breast! So tender and juicy and melt-in-mouth soft!

1612-11

Which filter do u like? haha. Their french beans are also very good leh – very fresh, tender and crunchy. YUM.

The main course portion isn’t fantastic, but every bite was awesome. Well done Petit Salut!

1612-12

Hui Mee’s dessert – chocolate cake with coffee ice cream. Looks good eh?

1612-13

My manager and I had this same dessert – fruit salad with passionfruit sorbet. Dunno how they make this simple dessert – it was another winner. Absolutely best ending to the lunch.

It was a great lunch – althoughย I wasn’t really stuffed to the brim, the quality and taste of the food plus fantastic service was sufficient to warrant a high rating from us. Their servers were polite, professional and spoke very well. When the bread rolls were out late, the server came to us right away to inform us that we had to wait a while. And our warm water was topped up very promptly twice.

Bibigo Marina Bay Financial Centre (Part.. XXX hahaha) – Food Review

it was a last minute lunch arrangement with another 3 colleagues yesterdayย – or rather, they have arranged earlier but i joined in at the last minute ๐Ÿ˜›

Managed to get a table for 4 very easily at about 1250pm – probably coz it wasn’t raining and people ventured out to Asia Square or even Shenton Way for cheaper lunches ๐Ÿ™‚

I ordered Spicy Chicken Stew – never tried it before. I usually order pork belly tofu stew with rice in the past but now i don’t eat grains.

1112-1

We all had warm water as it was a bit cold in the restaurant.

1112-2

Maria’s Grilled Chicken Salad arrived first! $11 – I thought it’s a bit expensive forย a chicken salad? I can get the same thing at Subway (and i get to choose all my vegetables)ย for about $8 and I already think it’s expensive..

1112-3

Tofu Stew with seafood – Hui Mee who had this said it was diluted than the previous times she had it and the tofu tasted slightly sourish?! She left the pot half untouched, rice also half untouched! Price – $14, comes with sides.

Did they change chef? Or slack in their standards? They are usually quite consistent, in my opinion..

1112-5

Jolie’s Kimchi Fried Rice – the portion was huge man! Price – $16, comes with sides and soup.

1112-6

When my Spicy Chicken Stew came, i suddenly felt very embarassed. It came looking very grand in a wooden stove. LOL.

1112-4

Doesn’t it look perfect? Sizzling, bubbling, chilli-red piping hot?! woohoo!

and I finished the entire pot! But I did not eat the potatoes, which made up maybe 1/3 of the pot and probably 1/2 the calories! They were quite generous with the chicken parts – love it ๐Ÿ™‚ But it’s quite spicy – but i was pretty comfortable with it (plus a bit of perspiration la haha).

It’s now my favourite Bibigo dish ๐Ÿ™‚ and it costs only $15!
