I make it a habit to return to places that I like and thus, this is not my first visit to Olivia Cassivelaun Fancourt. The restaurant is located on the second floor of one of Singapore’s most historically significant buildings, The Arts House.
The building was a Court House during the colonial years and then used for other official purposes in the years thereafter. It was only in 2004, that the building was transformed into The Arts House.
We started our meal with Le Veloute de Topinambour. Jerusalem artichoke veloute with parmesan emulsion and truffle. The artichoke is a pretty popular ingredient with restaurants at this time of the year as it is harvested from October to March.
Le Poulet Jaune d’Origine Francaise. Corn fed chicken from Landes, served with green peppers, cumin and carrots. The serving size was pretty measly. The chicken thigh and breast while tender, were as small as the mushroom that came with the dish.
