Chez Suzette, French-inspired cafe

By Sunday, March 27, 2022 , , , , ,

The trick to having an enjoyable weekend brunch is to go on Sunday instead of Saturday. I think. Especially those in the CBD-ish areas. That or i was really lucky to get a last minute table for early brunch at the popular French-inspired Chez Suzette, which serves classic brunch plates all day long. 
We were thankful to be seated indoors instead of the alfresco area on the ground floor. God bless this weather. I've been meaning to drop by after gym at Tanjong Pagar but it's afterall a 10 mins walk under the hot sun, and my jelly legs do object that. A craving for Croque Monsieur (i heard they do a decent one), led me down this path and it didn't disappoint. 
I'm more a Madame than a Monsieur fan actually since i live for eggs. The Croque Monsieur ($19) here features some lovely French sliced ham with melted Comté cheese and béchamel sauce in between and on top of the crusty and pillowy sourdough, before being grilled. The flavors were classic but i found the overall bite a tad dry, probably from the lack of the béchamel sauce. I'm not sure if i was ravenous after spin class or was it a pregnancy thing but i finished the entire sandwich, which is very rare. The size was quite decent i thought. 
My gf went for the English Breakfast ($29), thinking that we would be able to still have the Crêpes Suzette after. But nope, she struggled to even finish half of the massive platter of scrambled eggs, pork sausage, bacon, mushrooms, baked beans, and bagel and Beurre l'signy. It's a tad pricey for the homemade platter though. 
We should have had the Crêpes Suzette ($15) really. We hear that the chewy flour crepes drenched in the bitter orange sauce is an absolute delight, and even better so with the The Grand Marnier flambé done tableside. 
For heftier mains, there are other French bistro dishes like Duck Confit and Braised Beef Cheek available all day as well. 

Will be back for the crepes!
