French-Japanese Cuisine @Far East Square + Vouchers Giveaway!

Sponsored Post

Our first makan adventure at Far East Square started 2 months ago and since then, we have found ourselves going back numerous times whenever the weekend rolls along. 

Why? Besides being home to almost 30 food and dining outlets - authentic Min cuisine from Fuzhou, Cantonese delights as well as specialities from Thailand, Japan, Korea, India, local Singapore flavours to coffee and tea cafes, as well as sandwich, cake and pastry shops - Far East Square is so much less crowded compared to other parts of town come weekends. Plus, parking is only $3 (before GST) per entry!

So after gorging on Japanese cuisine, we decided to try something totally different during our next visit to Far East Square and things do not get as novel as what Cocotto dishes up!

Cocotto serves Japanese cuisine adapted from the French... in pot style.

Sounds a tad gimmicky? A little, but it works. Or at least the monkies thought that dining from a pot is quite cool. Each dish is served in its own individual pot, and we could take our pick from a variety of cocottos - ranging from beef to chicken, and gratin to spaghetti.

The wifey went for the Basil Beef Cocotto ($15.90), which was beef baked in oven with garlic oil and mushroom herb.

And it was yummy! The gravy was flavourful and complemented the beef very well. As for Ayd the pasta lover, there was only always going to be one choice.

The Meat Sauce Spaghetti Cocotto ($11) came with generous servings of ground beef and in the end, both Ayd and Ale were practically fighting over it!

Somewhat disappointing was the Pork Cocotto ($15) that I ordered, which was baked together with broccoli and onions.

The meat was rather dry, and the overall flavour of the dish was bland and uninspiring. Luckily, Ash's choice fared much better.

His Souffle Meat Omelette Cocotto ($9.90) is essentially egg, ground meat and cheese baked together in a pot. And it was delicious, with the egg tasting ever so fluffy! Or at least that was what I savoured from the miserable one mouthful that Ash bestowed upon me... as he promptly polished off the rest of it.

Cocotto is perhaps the only place in town to grab some no-frills French-Japanese food, so I have to say this causal eatery does a great job in blending the two cuisines and serving up affordable fusion food at the same time.
