Surprise Birthday Menu at Nicolas Le Restaurant

It was my birthday and wife made a reservation at Nicolas Le Restaurant located at the Bukit Pasoh conservation area.

The French owner and Chef Nicolas Joanny cooked here from the late 1990s until 2004, at the L'aigle d'Or, Intermezzo and Les Saisons restaurants before leaving to be executive chef of The Four Seasons Bangkok in 2004. He later opened a restaurant called Le Vendome in the Sukhumvit area in the Thai capital with a partner. In 2007, he returned to Singapore and opened this eponymous restaurant in Keong Saik Road.

We opted for the 8-course "Surprise Menu" and were impressed by the taste and presentation of the food. Nicolas has a strong penchant for using Asian ingredients and the result - fine french cooking with an Asian twist.

Here is the menu for the night but you might not get the chance to taste it as Nicolas changes his menu regularly.
