Awarded with more Michelin stars than any other chefs alive, Joël Robuchon is a bona fide legend of the culinary world. All fans of haute cuisine owe it to themselves to find out what the fuss is about. The new, accessibly priced lunch menus at his two restaurants here at Resort World Sentosa present a delicious opportunity to do so.
The softly-lit red and black interior provides a welcome respite from the crowds at the Resort. Counter seats offer excellent views of the kitchen, where chefs weave about among gleaming chrome shelves, busy preparing your food, with a practised efficiency that is fascinating to watch.
Lunch is available in 3, 4 or 5 courses ($48, $68 and $108 respectively*). You pick the courses from a menu that changes periodically, according to availability and seasonality.
Bread (baked fresh on the premises), an amuse-bouche (a pre-selected, bite-sized hors d’œuvre), a side of the legendary mashed potatoes with your main, plus coffee or tea, are all complimentary.
Elegantly-plated, contemporary French fare with intense flavours and masterfully contrasted textures (the succulent and smooth is often played against the crispy and crunchy). Here are some samples of what’s on the menu:
For food of this quality, and the little gastronomic journey the menu takes you on, Sunday lunch at L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon is seriously value-for-money. While the portions are French, the richness of the cooking will more than satiate hunger pangs.
All the items on the menu sound so good you may be tempted to order everything – but why not save some for your next visit, which you will probably be making plans for halfway through the meal.
L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon lunch menu is only available on Sunday, 12 to 2.30pm.
