Had the pleasure of dining at LP+Tetsu courtesy of Sanofi which hosted a blogger event – an intimate lunch info session with Dr Dr Law Ngai-Moh (Consultant Gastroenterologist and Internal Medicine Physician Raffles Hospital) on how to protect your liver. But I digress..
From their website:
LP+Tetsu is a collaboration between one-Michelin-starred chef, Laurent Peugeot and home grown F&B lifestyle company Food Junction Holdings Limited.
It is a contemporary French-Japanese fine dining restaurant helmed by one-Michelin-star Chef Laurent Peugeot.
The food certainly lived up to its name as the dishes served were specially crafted to tease the palette and satisfy the stomach.
The bread roll presentation was really unique with its clever display of bread on sticks. Taste wise, the croissant was soft, buttery yet flaky on the outside, just how I like it, the bread below it was a tad hard though.
before and after of my appetizer – creamy mushroom mini cake with olives, ham and dried tomatoes
The main courses below:
I had The “Supreme” guinea fowl confit accompanied with shiitake mushrooms and chestnut pearls. Tasted really tender and soft.
Shabu Shabu Salmon with caramelized pork belly – my friend had this, heard that it too tasted really good and the broth was nicely balanced too.
Poached clementine orange flower with salted caramel butter sable
I forgot what they called them but it tasted simply divine. Every mouthful was a dynamite burst of flavor, my favourite was the red one which was raspberry. The brown was chocolate and the white I think was cafe latte or something.
My verdict: I really appreciate the effort in combining the elements of Japanese and French food, the result is a wonderful combination that allows each individual characteristic of asian and western influences to shine. It doesn’t compete but complements each other well.
Will def be back for seconds.
