La Fourchette Restaurant @ Saigon

Saigon, the city that was influenced by French during their colonial occupation in Vietnam.

La Fourchetta was the place to be really, a traditional French style table settings enhanced by artworks from the mother country. There is also a old French bar with great selection (of unfamiliar looking) of French labeled liquor and wine.

France being the top wine production country, it's a shame that I haven't really tasted a great glass of French Red. Merlot is the most commonly grown grape variety in France, so, I took a shot. And also a glass of rosé which is originated in Bordeaux, France.

Some Carbo to start with,

La Fourchetta specialises in simple, traditional French fare and most importantly in a pretty 'hearty' portions. Our Entrees..
?Soupe De Poireaux & P De Terre?
Leeks and Potato Soup

Garlic Sausage in a Pastry with Dutch Sauce
Next, Plats Du Jour...

I could still drool over this dish whenever I stare at it for a little longer. The duck fat melts with every tender bite of meat.

Duck Magret cooked with Honey & Lemon
Another excellent serve,

Pork Stew with Red Wine, Onions, Bacon & Mushrooms

The dessert,
Creme Brulee

I thought I could never over-order in a French restaurant, La Fourchetta proves me wrong. I left the restaurant with a baloon-ish tummy and a big smile of satisfaction...
