Since 2002, Les Bouchons in Club Street area served the best steaks and fries in town in a typical Parisian bistro décor. The second outlet « Rive Gauche » opened in 2006, offering a beautiful and quiet terrace overlooking the romantic Singapore river.
Best selected meats – French « Normande » race for instance- specially imported French potatoes to produce our trademark home-made French fries and a reasonably priced wine list have build over the years our impeccable reputation.

There were many things about my visit that really pleased me and I want to start off by just saying that I will definitely be visiting this place again, if only just for their fries.
I wasn't able to find them anywhere else - their fries - and then I finally went back to read the description, and then did I realise that they actually used a a different kind of potato to make their food. Guess the French do have a way with their food.
Fries(they were called Frites?) come with any main set and I highly recommend them, because they'll basically be the only form of starch you'll remember for days after your time there.
The place was honestly a little hard to find, nestled in an alley that came alive only at night. My friend and I followed a path of other small restaurants down and found our way there with little difficulty, but there were quite a number of eateries lined along the path which looked interesting!
The branch which I visited was in Chinatown, across the markets and the Temple, with the kind of ambience that felt really homely as they used candles to light the tables and decorated maroon walls with vintage ornaments. We sat by a large window by the corner, and it was quite peaceful until the evening crowd settled in - do remember to call and book by the way, if you intend to eat there for an important event or should you wish to go in a big group.
When we first arrived, we were served bread that was way too hard to be cut by a set of knives and forks, so we ended up using our hands, resulting in an internal accumulation of uncultured guilt. Not to say that the breads weren't delicious, in fact, they were so soft on the inside, it was ridiculous how difficult it'd been for us to tear open the outside previously, and we quickly finished them all.
We ordered a Rib Eye each and looking back, I'm quite glad that I hadn't ordered anything else, because it was delicious and both had been cooked as well as we had requested them, though a quarter of my friend's portion seemed to be slightly undercooked. All Mains come with a salad, and I think they had some form of spice that tasted like Wasabi in them, so take note, all people like me whom are unable to consume spicy food. The waiters were prompt with our orders even though the the entire place ha been filled to the brim with customers and my experience there was generally fantastic.
One last thing - their escargots were another thing I tried and although I find the taste quite gratifying with the seasoning being rather rich in flavour, it may not suit the tastes of others.
Overall, I was very pleased with my trip to Les Bouchons, and will definitely be paying another visit in the future.
