1. Merci Marcel
Next time you’re in Orchard, take the time to chill out at Merci Marcel’s latest multi-concept store at Palais Renaissance. The beautiful space embodying “France in the Tropics” is divided into a concept store, café and bar, lounge and a patio with calming greenery as backdrop.
You won’t leave hungry too, as French consultant Nicolas Nguyen Van Hai has dreamed up an extensive menu of French staples with his own delicious twist. He has updated the popular salmon gravlax by using fresh trout from Norway, which is marinated and served with beetroot carpaccio and showered with honey and vodka marinade.
Yet another option on the menu that's worth ordering is the Merci Marcel classic: ravioles de royans. But of course, this has been updated with the addition of chunks of foie gras, foie gras emulsion to complement the sharp taste of the tête de moine cheese.
