The suave and debonair Travelling Gourmet finds affordable French food in a…
MOST remote part of the one horse town that is Bedok…Bedok North to be exact. Quiet, tranquil and peaceful, far from the hustle and bustle of the Financial District and the tourist attractions of glitzy Orchard Road…Triple V serves up French food by a French trained Chef. No, bespectacled and Cheerful Chef Paul Lee did not train in France but his mentor was a well known French Chef whose restaurant lasted 10 long years before closing. Do not expect Michelin Star standard fine dining or haute cuisine but you get good wholesome food with a French flair but of course tweaked to Asian tastes. This is the Heartlands after all n’est pas! I have tried his specialities and for what you pay for, it is good. It is like what you would get in a small brasserie in a provincial town in France…think a remote part of La Val de la Loire…Ice cream fans rejoice. There is also a wide selection of Italian style Gelati or Ice Cream at $3.80 a scoop. I love Gelati especially Frutti di Bosco!
When you hanker for unpretentious French cuisine that does not cost an arm and a leg come here…no need to pawn your gold Piaget watch to dine here Wahahahah!
Bon appetit et a votre sante! 🙂
