The Dirty Stall

Odette

Posted on: November 28, 2016

Housed in one of the coolest places for a restaurant – the National Gallery Singapore, Odette is the new restaurant opened by Julien Royer in late 2015 after leaving Jaan.

And not too long after opening, Odette was also awarded 2 Michelin stars in 2016!

The spacious interior of Odette is swathed in pastel hues, making the place look even more light and airy.

In general the food was executed well, the flavours were very clean and light.

Bread service was interesting, with different kinds of butter and whipped lard.

4 small bites as the amuse bouche.

A familiar dish from Jaan – the mushroom tea with ceps sabayon – but updated with a delectable porcini brioche on the side.

There’s a hint of Japanese influences on his modern French cuisine, like this octopus dish which used a dashi broth base.

The heirloom beetroot variation was basically beetroot being turned into all sorts of things like a sorbet, a jelly, etc. It was good though just heavy on the beetrootness.

This is his signature dish carried over from Jaan – (pine-smoked) 55º slow-cooked organic egg, overflowing with dry ice smoke.

With the browned chorizo bits inside, this became a rather atas breakfast dish.

French poulet – very tender chicken breast meat with a creamy Albufera sauce.

Palate cleanser of matcha espuma with a small cucumber flower, beside an earl grey sorbet on a base of apricot granita. Delicate but refreshing still!

Dessert – a lemon tart as a cute little work of art! Meyer lemon curd built upon sable breton, with basil and yogurt. Almost like an edible UFO hahaha

Petit fours  – torched marshmallows, canelé, choux with pistachio cream and fresh raspberry, and salted caramels. I found them a bit too rich and cloying after such a light meal, but then again I’m not a fan of sweet stuff.

Would I go again? Yes, but more to confirm the quality again.
