La Fromagerie by Edith & Julien
Th EU has started running a seven month art and culture promotion in Singapore, with the French Gastronomy Festival portion having just started the other day. As part of this, multiple restaurants across the island have been offering S$30 (US$20) meals, including La Fromagerie (5 Mohamed Sultan Road #01-01, 6732-6269), a cheese shop from the team behind Le Saint Julien. We had seen this place a long time ago, but it looked like now they had seating and some small menus. We grabbed their S$30 Voilah! special, which was a 150 gm board of cheese with a glass of wine.
I am by no means a pro when it comes to cheese, but I certainly do like it...in the right amounts, that is. We were provided with six different types tonight, ranging from some mild Parmesan and goat cheese on one end to a stanky blue cheese and runny cumin-flavored one on the other. I liked them all - particularly the pungent ones at the end. But after all of that cheese and bread, I admittedly got a bit sick of of it (and ready to pass out), especially since we also grabbed some macaroni & cheese and a bowl of onion soup. Well, they are moving to Holland Village soon, which seems like a fitting place to cater to the hanging-out-on-the-weekend crowd.
