Au Chocolat

Located at level 1 above the skating rink, this place is a French inspired confiserie ( confectionery ) and bistro. The first thing that caught my eyes on this place is the train going around the shop. So cute and every little boys’ dream comes true.

Open concept kitchen
Very noisy and smell, especially when making the truffle fries. The whole place smells of it. My partner is having a headache due to the smell.

Puree of Wild Mushroom
Selection of forest gems, stewed in flavourful mushroom stock and puréed into rich mushroom soup infused with white truffle oil and served with spring herb and golden crouton
Feels that it is not hot enough.

Italian Tomato Salad
Tomatoes, sliced buffalo mozzarella cheese, pickled red shallot rings with shredded basil and white balsamic dressing over a fresh crisp green salad
For dressing, it tastes sweet on the greens.

Duck Confit
A popular classic with an Au Chocolat twist, pan roasted French duck thigh served with potato mash, a whitewine poached pear and topped with tangy chocolate orange sauce.
The duck is ok, abit too dry and tear off easily.

Handmade Pacific Crab Cake
Pacific crab meat mixed with bell pepper, French “esplette” pepper, in-house seasoning, deep fried till golden brown and served with caper lemon butter sauce and mashed Idaho potato with garlic and cream cheese
The dish would be ok if I am not having the salad earlier. Seems to be eating the same dish twice. It’s getting boring.

Au Chocolat Crepe
Velvety French vanilla ice cream lined with our signature Au Chocolat fudge sauce and finished with fresh strawberries topped with almond flakes
The ice cream is just plain flavored, none of vanilla taste. If you are expecting homemade ice cream with vanilla pod, sorry not this.The crepe is abit too thick and does not taste freshly made.

Frozen Hot Chocolate ($12)
Disappointed in finding ice chips in the drink. Does not taste as chocolatey as expected. Just a cup of watered down normal chocolate, with a scoop of ice cream, covered in whipped cream and abit chocolate shavings.

Total damages : $115.35 ( including a glass of white wine $16)
