Le Petit Paradis @ Joo Chiat Road


Alibaba is a new concept kopitiam that marries french, japanese and filipino food with beer. Rather, that is the new way to go for eating houses, rather than have kopi-c and hokkien mee (that option is also available!).


Walls of green.


Loving the cute name!


Once humble grounds for Saveur, now it is home to Le Petit Paradis, another that wants to offer French food at un-French prices. The buzzer is handy and it startled me when it started buzzing after placing my order - just to test, they muse.

The menu is limited but good enough to offer diners variety for more than one visit. There are specials like crumbed escargots with scrambled eggs and fries that appear irregularly to surprise the regulars.

foie gras

Foie Gras ($8.50)

The portion of this was larger than Saveur's, a tad crispy on the exterior but the velvety finishes were amazing. The apple cubes and crumble gave this a lovely bite.

duck confit

Duck Confit ($14.50)

Just one leg served with the usual mash and purple cabbage. While I will not jump on the wagon with how value for money this is, they have done a decent job ensuring the meat is firm, hardly salty and skin is kept crispy.


Bottoms up for a happy unwind. 


Wash the meal down with Naked Apple ($8.50), a fruity cider. 

Very affordable french food in the neighbourhood, let's just hope they keep grounded this way.
