Daniel Boulud’s db Bistro Moderne, Singapore

When we first visited Daniel Boulud’s db Bistro Moderne at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore we were treated to a VIP feast by the talented and gracious Chef Stephane Istel (see here). 

On this visit, I intended to pop in for one of Daniel Boulud’s legendary burgers whilst my wife explored the surrounding Marina Bay Sands.

Stephane caught wind of my visit and sent out a complementary speciality from his hometown of Alsace, a perfect Tarte Flambée.  

The Original db Burger made with deep meaty sirloin steak patty filled with braised short ribs and foie gras, served on a Parmesan bun is amongst the best burgers I’ve tasted. At $38 Singaporean dollars, it does not come cheap – there certainly seems to be an element of paying for ‘the label’. 

To follow I had the French Toast À L'Alsacienne *Kougelhopf – I have a weakness for French toast and this one with caramelised apples and a tart and silky fromage blanc was exceptional. (*Kugelhopf is the Alsatian equivalent of brioche.)

A final treat came in the form of some of Chef Istel’s dinky madeleines.
