Me@OUE’s New French Menu Crafted by Michelin-starred Chef Jérémy Gillon

Apart from being Singapore’s only dining establishment to offer three distinctively different cuisines – Japanese, French, and Chinese – in an open-concept kitchen, Me@OUE is well known for its panoramic views of Singapore’s iconic Marina Bay waterfront, with an adjoining lounge that offers an extensive premium liquor list.

With menus designed by Japanese celebrity chef Chen Kentaro and French Michelin-starred Chef Jérémy Gillon, Me@OUE is an utopia for lovers of good food. Serving up a culinary mix of three cuisines – Chinese, French and Japanese, Me@OUE also constantly consults with international guest chefs to ensure a consistently fresh menu to keep its diners enthralled.

Recently in town to create a new à la carte menu with resident chef, Vincent Ng, Chef Gillon also crafted a different tasting menu for each day, using only the freshest ingredients available in the kitchen– exactly what we love. We had the opportunity to sample his tasting menu, and conclude that Chef Gillon is indeed a culinary talent – there wasn’t a dish we didn’t enjoy. Our only gripe is that the same menu would not be available again.

Our amuse bouche arrived in the form of a perfectly deep fried lobster tempura, served on a bed of seaweed, buckwheat, green apple and lobster jus, topped with radish – a refreshing dish that awakens the tastebuds.

One of our favorites, the foie gras terrine was complemented with a combination of pumpkin and fruit syrup, gently melting in the mouth without overwhelming the tastebuds. A deceivingly simple dish, this classic French dish requires an experienced chef to ensure that the flavors are well-balanced.

Worthy of mention, dessert was a culmination of black olive powder, meringue, sablé and mandarin sorbet. A myriad of flavors, this light and vividly refreshing dessert instantly hits the spot, satisfying our sweet tooth cravings without any guilt.

The à la carte menu features equally promising dishes such as foie gras terrine ($28) and lobster risotto (from $38). What we enjoy about the dining experience at Me@OUE is its impeccable service and stunning view of the Singapore skyline.
