Affordable French Restaurant in Singapore | Poulet Singapore

Poulet Chicken French Restaurant SingaporeWith a façade simulating Paris’s iconic Eiffel Tower beckoning you from afar, it is hard not to notice Poulet, a classy, yet contemporary French restaurant that is a gem to have these days amidst the usual French fine dining you will only occasionally indulge, without burning a hole in the pocket. Brought to you by The Minor Food Group, the same people who own Thai Express, Poulet has cleverly positioned itself to be a modern and casual dining place that offers pocket-friendly French classic dishes to the mass in Singapore.

On the Poulet Menu

We like the idea of the menus in longish hardcovers with the Eiffel Tower on it and that the Poulet staff made effort to position all standing upright on every table, so you could see an Eiffel Tower pool across. But we are not the slightest bit disturbed by an Eiffel too many.The menu is pretty much self-explanatory on every leaf, and the range is rather well covered; the entrees, soups, salads, sides, sandwiches, pissaladieres (French pastries), mains, beverages, desserts, etc., are clearly laid out. Don’t worry, the menu is unlike a French storybook some restaurants have as if we needed to learn French before we can eat.

Poulet Rotisserie Chicken: Signature Roast ChickenPoulet Rotisserie Chicken

We ordered their signature Poulet Rotisserie Chicken (Chicken Roti – not the roti bread ok!), for half portion at S$15.90 because, honestly, who wouldn’t want to try traditional mushroom sauce with Chardonnay? The matter of wine sauce with chicken per se cuts you back on wine money to pair with the white meat (cheap thrill, but you’ll thank me later). The roast chicken meat is really tender, to say the least. The sauce is, in our opinion, O-to-the-M-to-the-G. Mushroom-earthiness meets the kind of exquisite white wine sauce usually made for steamed mussels. Even the back of my skull could sense it and agreed with that equation.

Poulet Salad de ParisWe also had Salad de Paris (priced at S$9.90) which is really delicious. The salad was well tossed in french vinaigrette dressing; if the pine nuts were more roasted and the tomatoes were to be sun-dried instead of fresh, it’ll be ridiculously awesome. In our personal spin of this dish, we’d like that charred oakiness from roasted/ toasted nuts and that tangy sweetness from sundried tomatoes to tie in with the dried cranberries so the sweetness from the cranberries wouldn’t be too isolated.

We also highly recommend the Smoked Duck Salad (S$13.90) and to finish off your meal with a nice dessert like the Crème Brulee (S$8.90) for a sweet note in making your day. Poulet Smoked Duck SaladCreme Brulee

Poulet Chicken French Restaurant Interior SettingFrench Bistro Casual Dining

There is really nothing to complain about Poulet. This French Bistro has a setting that is relaxing, yet classy, and a casual, yet neat theme. Romantic street lamps mimicking Parisian sidewalks and reasonably plush seats put you in the French mood, almost.The prices are not overboard and food portions are decent. You don’t need restrictive dress code or to be particularly uptight about keeping your kids’ movements and voices down, because it is that family-friendly.
