HENRI is right at the intersection of Telok Ayer Street and Pekin Street.

The dining room is spacious and bright, the decor is elegant in its simplicity, the furnishings are comfortable, the ambiance is casual and relaxed. It is a nice place to hangout and meet up.

Planche des Rois $50++

We nibbled at 
Parma ham, saucisson d’Auvergne sausage
, rosette de Lyon sausage, duck rillette spread, tomme des croquant de Noix cheese, curé nantais cheese and bleu d’Auvergne cheese with fresh sourdough bread while waiting for the rest to arrive. Eating the sausages, ham and cheeses neat, the savoury umami flavours were not overly pungent but well balanced, smooth and just nice for me.

I love their coffee brewed with house roasted El Salvador and Columbian Arabica. The medium roasted blend had smooth round body and tasted richly nutty chocolaty with subtle citrusy notes.

Velouté Aux Champignons $16++

The rich cream of mushroom soup was made with mushroom, butter, garlic, onion, fresh cream, milk and dressed with parsley.

The freshly made creamy rich soup was smooth with soft bits of mushroom and tasted savoury sweet. Homely yet delicious.

Parmentier de Confit de Canard $35++

Love this duck confit - the pulled baked duck meat was covered in mashed potato. The slivers of duck meat were soft-tender, juicy with a savoury flavour and subtle duck gaminess. The savoury sweet mashed potato infused flavours from the duck and complemented it with its own savoury sweet taste and creamy soft texture.

Maybe not eye candy but it was mind blowing delicious.

Duck lovers (I am one) got to order this.

Filet de Bar $30++

Another beautifully executed dish.

The skin of the sea bass fillet was perfectly seared to a delicate crisp with a nice smokey savoury taste. The white meat below was soft-tender and juicy. It tasted sweet with the characteristic subtle earthly tone of sea bass fish.

The sea bass was complemented by a sweet savoury sauce du chef and smooth mash parsnip with a bundle of crunchy sautéed green bean.

Carré D'agneau Avec Gratin Dauphinois $36++

I cut a piece off that medium rare lamb rack to taste - it was wonderfully savoury sweet with the subtle taste of lamb and a bit of smokiness from the slight sear at the fringe.

Dribble in the sweet savoury port wine sauce.

HENRI_French_Wine_Bistro_Bakery_Peking_Street

Such a delicious indulgence - tender juicy lamb complemented by port wine sauce.

Sliced potato baked in cream and milk.

HENRI's set lunch menu looks interesting and reasonably priced. Can consider for a nice lunch meet up, catch up in the Central Business District.

The dinner menu which we tried three dishes today. That chef's burger looks interesting to try for my next visit.

Shall be back to savour more of their excellent fresh artisan breads and pastries with gourmet coffee soon.
