This is a tagline that is worth believing- Amazing french roast chicken.

I seldom go to a same eatery more than once, simply because I like trying a variety of food. So, when I visit a place more than once, it really means something. And I've been here twice in the span of a week or so.

The Mushroom soup ($5.80) has tiny chunks of mushroom and a creamy texture to it. Together with the croutons, it made a slurp-worthy soup.

The Escargot De Bourgogne ($8.80) was seasoned with tomato fondue and almond garlic butter. Wait for it to cool off a little because it's very hot when served. I'm not a fan of escargots but I felt that the combination of the seasoning made it very flavourful.

Here's the star of the show. You can't go to Poulet without ordering their famous Poulet Roti ($15.80). The chicken is brined for a full day and then placed in the rotisserie for a slow roast. The Mushroom Chardonnay Sauce also complemented the chicken perfectly. The chicken has a slightly crisp skin with a sweet glaze over it. The meat tears apart easily and it's juicy. The Mushroom Chardonnay Sauce could be an overkill if you try to mop up all the sauce but as a light accompaniment, it's perfect with the little bits of mushrooms. 

This is the Tiramisu ($7.80) which I raved about to a friend because I haven't tasted decent tiramisu in ages.  Some tiramisus are too hard, some tiramisus have too cheesy a taste, some are too sweet. But this is one of the best tiramisus I have eaten in the last couple of years. It's enough for 2/3 to share. In there, it's a whole glob of mess, unlike some tiramisus which are layered nicely. But everything about this tiramisu is good- the right proportion of cream and sponge fingers, it's not too sweet, the coffee taste comes through nicely as well.

Service here is good as well. If you go in the evenings, try to go early because the queues can get pretty long. We went at 7.30 pm and ended queuing for around 45 minutes.
