Maison Fatien is starting to become one of my favourite places to eat French food in Singapore. Very authentic place, run by a Burgundy company who also runs a inn in Beaune, Burgundy - it's just as good and authentic as it gets.
I've blogged about the place before, but with each repeat visit i try different things and thus, as you're only as good as each new dish, you know, definitely the ratings go up or down with each new dish you try.
Here I had the escargots - these were competently done, with loads of garlic and butter. To be fair , I'm not so keen on escargots as i find them pretty tasteless, really. (7/10)
The Coq au Vin, the Cocotte of the day, was excellent excellent stuff, probably the best Coq Au Vin I've had in a long time. Very very authentic tasty traditional dish, Coq Au Vin, i.e. chicken in red wine, was absolutely brilliant. Here there were wild mushrooms and chanterelles, onions, and of course the chicken, all cooked in an earthly, rich and savoury red wine broth which had been mixed with the chicken stock to create that musky, earthly stew that is so delicious. Each mouthful was just rich with umami and with an earthiness that comes from the ground - so Burgundian. Lovely. (9/10).
These two dishes are just excellent. Must try! We downed everything with a lovely Pouilly-Fume, 2010. Just delicious.
