LES AMIS, CLAYMORE ROAD, SINGAPORE

LES AMSI RESTAURANT,  CLAYMORE ROAD, SNGAPORE.

My daughter invited us for a set luncheon menu for her mom’s birthday. S90 per person ++  for a five-course meal, plus coffee/tea, was considered reasonable by Singapore standards. It would be unreasonable for me to convert it into Malaysian ringgit, with its falling rate, for we were mere beneficiaries for this expensive luncheon. This was my second visit here; the first was few years ago.

The décor of the restaurant could not match its image of fine dinning, except its cold room storage for wine. However it’s cosy and comfortable enough. Service here was excellent, at par with Michelin stars. I would not rate the food here at par with the best in Singapore, except the bread and Le Ponclet butter(only restaurant in Asia serving it);butter was slightly salted, excellent. Daikon radish soup was smooth and licking good. The main course, French chicken, was a disappointment, for it was coarse; the Aussie wagyu steak, tenderloin grade 5, medium rare, was right, but not short of excellence.

    Pan seared Scallops look very tempting, large and fried pefectly, is the Shiso Periila a dipping sauce ?
    Great culinary pictures as usual Wonkywizard.

      Once there were a lot of Scots living in the city, such as Tanglin Mall, Napier, Scotts in the vicinity. Claymore was a scot sea master who once lived near there.

        Thank you for that informative advice my friend, the perilla sounds a bit like the minty dipping sauce, we are served with when having Vietnamese spring rolls.
        I like your version of the background of the name Claymore, to me I first heard that name in Vietnam, Claymore Mine.
        Kindest regards and thanks again for the clarification.
