Babette Restaurant & Bar: Hipster French-Japanese Cuisine At Tyrwhitt Road
Parc Sovereign Hotel is a newly established mid-tier class hotel along the stretch of Tyrwhitt Road. Value adding to this hotel chain is Babette Restaurant & Bar that features French-Japanese cuisine. This unpretentious yet hipster restaurant is the first of its kind along Tyrwhitt Road. With a capacity of 64 seats, Babette is a perfect spot for lunch, dinner and drinks all day, err day!
I love how Babette has red bricks juxtaposed with plain concrete flooring and wall. Dimly lighted with industrial light bulbs presents a relaxing atmosphere and as a temporary escape from the hectic working world out there.
Main dishes are prepare using classic French techniques with Japanese ingredients as the base.
Salmon & Soba; Thick slices of confit salmon served on a bed of springy soba noodles with tamagoyaki.
Highlight of Babette will be their Babette Chirashi Donburi ($19); Marinated assortment of fresh sashimi, tamago, and tobiko on warm rice. Each mouthful was delightful and refreshing at the same time. Health conscious peeps, this is da bomb! It’s Instagram worthy too! Apologize that my picture doesn’t do justice due to lighting.
Lastly, Lava Macha with Vanilla Ice Cream which sent me straight to heaven!
Being a non-macha fan, I will usually refrain from it. However, it wasn’t the case for this irresistible dessert! Scoop after scoop, I surprised myself that afternoon.
There you go, a review of Babette. Food lovers, this is a place not to miss! Alert to all drinkers, this is another night spot to explore, but remember, don’t drink and drive.
Will love to try their Crackling Pork ($10) which takes 48hr of slow cooking and roasted to perfection.
