Eat: The Kitchen at Bacchanalia (1 Michelin Star) Singapore

Kitchen at Bacchanalia, awarded 1 Michelin Star serves contemporary French cuisine at 39, Hong Kong Street, Singapore.

They serves 2 or 3 courses working lunch menu. Prices are reasonable compared to other Michelin Star Restaurant.

Best of all, still/sparkling water and unlimited bread supply is complimentary....

On top of that, OCBC card members get free upgrade from 2 to 3 courses meal when pay using OCBC credit card. 

Parking can be an issue as there are limited parking space nearby. However, the restaurant do offer valet parking for its customer. Otherwise, take a cab here to save the trouble for parking.

We arrived at 12.30pm , just nice for our appointment. The restaurant has an open kitchen concept so you could watch while the chef prepare our food. 

Once we sat down, we were asked if we would like still or sparkling water. We choose still water and was served promptly. For the kids, I asked for warm water and that was being served as well.

Table plating was nice and unique. Even the side plate for bread is very pretty.

Kids love to observe what is going on in the kitchen
We were then served bread and this is practically the highlight of the meal. The bread is very very good and freshly baked on the spot. Butter is very good as well. They are very observant and keep refilling our bread once we are finished, so we had a good supply of bread.

We were then served two complimentary starters. First up was beef. The waiter was very nice and asked if the kids would like to have the starter as well.

Even though we only ordered 2 set of 3 courses meals to share between 2 adults and 2 kids, the kids also get their share of complimentary appetiser :)

To be honest, I have to comment that their complimentary appetiser is much much better than the starter that we ordered.

The beef is very fresh and goes very well with the radish and some creamy sauce that was topped on it.
Complimentary appetizer- raw beef
Garlic soup sounded ewww but it is surprisingly very good!
Another complimentary appetiser-garlic soup with olive oil
Our starter on the other hand, was a bit of a disappointment.
Appetizer- White peach- french bean, almond and fois gras snow
Now for the main course, I had short rib which is ok, nothing fantastic but not bad either.
Main course- Braised short rib -beef
Mum ordered fish and its much better than my beef. She enjoyed it and shared it with the kids.

For dessert, it is the kids' favourite strawberries dessert and they practically finish the dessert themselves. I did manage to ate a mouthful. Not amazing, but tasted ok...

Overall, the dining experience is pleasant but I was not wow-ed by its food... bread and complimentary appetiser is definitely my favourite during the meal. 

Still, if one is looking to try a Michelin Star Restaurant and wanted a reasonable priced Michelin Star Restaurant, I will still recommend Kitchen at Bacchanalia for its excellent service and dining experience.

* Reservation is recommanded.
