Restaurant Week: La Brasserie @ Fullerton Bay Hotel

It’s the time for restaurant week yet again and this time we chose to dine at La Brasserie, located at Fullerton Bay hotel. I patronised other F&B establishments at Fullerton Bay, but have never really tried La Brasserie before so it was a good opportunity. There was no crowd cos we took the earliest booking but it was soon filled up by all the lunch crowd in the CBD. This year’s theme for restaurant week was ‘Feasts of The Ocean’ so we would have expect the food to be rather seafood related

Complimentary sour dough and french baguette

We like the sour dough with the crispy texture and really soft bread on the inside. The baguette was a little too hard but it was still chewable. And the best part, the bread basket was refillable. We were so shocked when the waitress served us another basket after we were done with ours

Traditional fish and seafood broth, served with garlic croutons

I spy the seafood but not the croutons. There was one prawn and bits of fish meat. The soup is a little on the light side. It felt like drinking fish soup (like the chinese style), with the addition of tomato sauce. The friend commented it was a little fishy, and I thought I had much better fish soup in Sweden. ha but we thought the honest opinion might hurt the staffs so I decided to take it to writing

Pepper and herb-crusted barramundi, served with chargrilled courgettes and saffron sauce

The meat was smooth, moist and very easy to eat but the crust was a little flavourless. I felt like you have to eat the whole thing together if not, there is just no contrast in balance

Signature duck confit, served with lentils gremolata and field greens

Perhaps we should have just stick with their signatures. I like the duck for its really crispy skin and tender meat, even though it was a little red

Strawberry short cake roll, served with yuzu caviar and pistachio icecream

Dessert was a surprise and probably the best out of the meal. The cake was smooth and deliciously soft with delectable pistachio crumbs and icecream though we spent some time trying to figure where did the yuzu come in place

Petit four

It was complimentary and they were bad. Latte tasted like nespresso but I had no complains for it just cos it was part of the meal

The whole meal was really filling and for a starred restaurant, I thought it was pretty reasonable with this amount of food. The quality is a little below average but from the gauge of this restaurant week, I think a visit once will just be enough
