Brasserie Léon de Lyon

Dining here was like visiting an art gallery. Every wall I see, hangs a framed art or
 portraits of Chef Jean Paul Lacombe and his distinguish guest that once dine here.

In a typical French table setting, I began my dinner with a Rosee Champagne aperitif. The bread with tapenade and choux pastry swiftly arrived soon after. Studying the menu was a like a tug of war. For heaven's sake, I was salivating reading rows after rows of intricately descriptive dishes.

It was my first time to Lyon, I made my decision to stick to proper Lyon old fashioned food.
Salads of veal's foot, spicy mustard dressing potatoes and lamb's lettuce and Terrine of sweet bread, foie gras, chicken breast, pistachio covered in pastry and small salad  were both impeccably fresh
 The star of the night were the two main course, the Quenelle was light and fluffy. I must say not all fish balls are created equal. The trophy winning dish was unbeatable. Sometimes made me wonder, why we can't have good affordable French food in Singapore/Asia.

The Andouillette (Patty Awfuls) had some gamey scent, easily masked by the mustard, as how it should be. 

The French toast, Chef Jean Paul Lacombe's attempt to recreate his childhood memories in this dish. Its a simple desserts that hugs your soul.

 Highly Recommended. I would swing by everyday to try all the menu if I was given the opportunity.
