La Petite Cuisine

Just a quick update on La Petite Cuisine at Serene Centre. Where it used to be a casual dining offshoot of French restaurant La Cuisine next door, La Cuisine has since closed down, and they’re now operating solely out of La Petite Cuisine.

The menu has expanded slightly, and now includes terrine of foie gras, and duck leg confit, which is what I ordered on Saturday. This was surprisingly good, and one of the best value duck confits around. It may not have been as meltingly tender as the one at Le Bistrot, but at $14, who’s complaining? The gratin that accompanied the dish was rich, creamy and sinfully delicious.

A had the Choucroute Alsacienne, which was essentially a platter of different cuts of pork, with a pile of sauerkraut. Right up A’s alley. While the meats weren’t spectacular individually, the sauerkraut and hot English mustard just pulled everything together.

I feel a little sad that the owners had to downsize by shutting down their main restaurant, but I hope that by doing so, they can concentrate fully on developing La Petite Cuisine as a casual dining outlet. It seems to be doing much better than La Cuisine, so I hope their business continues to improve.
