Restaurant Week: Bistro Du Vin

I have taken part in Restaurant week about 3 times and eaten at about 10 different restaurants. 
Bistro Du Vin is hands down my favorite experience and so much so that unless there are any places I really really want to try, I am going to go back to Bistro Du Vin come next restaurant week. 

Bistro Du Vin is warm, cozy and unpretentious, with bright red walls lined with picture frames. 
Now bear in mind that Bistro Du Vin does not have a dining city star (i.e. dinner is $35++ instead of $55++)

started off with warm crusty bread and butter. Simple and good we had 2 baskets!

We were blown away by the quality and quantity of the foie gras. Nicely seared and oh so creamy (and so sinful!). Wolfed it down with the bread.

The cauliflower soup was equally rich. Perfect on a cold night.

Both of us went with the beef cheeks in red wine for our mains. The beef cheek was oh so tender and flavorful, the mash was smooth and fluffy and buttery - basically everything you want in a mash.
Sadly, the portion was too big. The heart was willing but the stomach couldnt take it.

We were apprehensive when desert came, we had been having such a wonderful meal so far it would be horrible to end the meal on a low. Thankfully, desert did not disappoint. The warm chocolate cake was rich and perfectly cooked. The apple tart was flaky, crisp and sweet but not cloyingly so.

The icing on top of this very delicious meal was how great the service was. Our glasses were frequently topped up and everyone was pleasant and friendly even though the restaurant was so packed, a very rare occurrence in Singapore I must say.
This place knows how to make good, satisfying meals and I will definitely be back for more especially to try out the set lunches.
