Le Chasseur | Singapore

4 Jul

Le Chasseur means “the hunter” in French. It’s a weird name for a cze char place, which usually involves romanisation of Chinese names. It turns out that the owner used to stay in Mauritius, and took the name from his stay there.

I went to Le Chasseur the day it was featured on ladyironchef’s blog (the advantages of a flexible schedule) and was raring to try its signature dishes.

Ngor Hiang (4.5/5) was crispy, and paired well with sweet-spicy sauce.
BBQ Live Prawn (2.5/5) was just a skewered prawn that may have been live. It was a bit rubbery and tasteless. I think it was overcooked.
Eggplant with Salted Fish (3.25/5) was standard.
Pork Knuckle (4.75/5) was very crispy and tender. The lady boss was teaching us how to eat the pork knuckle. take a piece of crispy pork knuckle, and spoon some cucumber-pineapple-soy-vinegar sauce. A winner
Claypot Rice (3.5/5) tasted average for me, contrary to what most people claim. Some nice charred bits, and nice dark sauce, but most of it was just dark sauce rice with lap cheong and chicken.

Verdict: Go for the pork knuckles and the ngor hiang. Claypot rice isn’t bad, but nothing special.
