SoufflÃ©s arenâ€™t the best to search out in Singapore, and even then, theyâ€™re largely of the usual chocolate or cheese variants. However one restaurant in Duxton Hill is taking over these difficult French creations in its dedication to the traditional dish, puffing these egg whites up with candy and savory renditions.
Aptly known as SoufflÃ©, the 48-seater eatery opened earlier this 12 months and claims to be the primary and solely one in all its type within the nation. Every of the six candy and 5 savory recipes are made to order, leading to gentle, fluffy, and ethereal bites that you could dig into on the Parisian bistro-inspired area.
To begin, the vary of savory treats incorporates bÃ©chamel into whipped egg whites, with a conventional cheese choice ($18) and extra unconventional ones just like the lobster soufflÃ© ($28), drizzled with lobster bisque and topped with a bit of the crustaceanâ€™s claw.
Plus, influenced by native flavors, the laksa soufflÃ© ($23) is studded and topped with prawns, then drenched within the acquainted sauce that has only a tinge of warmth.
Even the mains are paired with mini soufflÃ©s of their very own, just like the duck confit and mashed potato with truffled mushroom soufflÃ© ($32), or the boeuf bourguinon of slow-cooked beef cheek in crimson wine with a comtÃ© soufflÃ© ($32). To pattern a little bit of every thing, you possibly can even order a tasting flight of three mini ones ($32) from choices like truffled mushroom, roquefort, comtÃ©, laksa, or lobster.
On the candy facet, the kitchen douses its soufflÃ© in Grand Marnier and infuses it with candied oranges ($23), even giving every desk a bottle of the booze to soak the dessert in as a lot alcohol as theyâ€™d like. However for those who want a sober, iced model, attempt the citrusy lime one whichâ€™s encrusted in fellutine ($18) for a refreshing finale.
Oh, and people searching for a pleasant sit-down meal can attempt the brand new two- or three-course set menu, the place you get to customise your plates by selecting from 22 choices off the a la carte line-up. The 2-course one (from $45) will get you a starter and predominant or predominant and dessert, whereas the three-course one (from $58) takes you from appetizer to predominant to dessert.
