L'etoile Café: Back, Revamped & Better


L'etoile Café...

No fairy tale. No inspiring story. At L’etoile Café, they just want to serve their best to the customers. Under the new management team, L'etoile is totally revamped and is way different from the one back in 2013. From renovating to introducing new food items in the menu, the new management team has put in a great deal of effort to create a brand new L'etoile where customers can comfortably called it their 'second home'.

Taking over an existing café that has been long forgotten by the public is definitely not easy, but with the new owner's strong passion and knowledge about the F&B industry, business at L’etoile Café has finally picked up and they now have a huge pool of regulars. Also, they recently opened another outlet situated at Changi Village.

Decked in a quiet corner at Farrer Park, L’etoile Café is a modern, cosy and down-to-earth café that serves an extensive range of affordable Western staples. Their current in-house promotion of 1 for 1 for mains is also very wallet-friendly. Besides their mains, L'etoile is also known for their home-baked cakes and coffee. So be it the weekdays or weekends, L’etoile Café is a good place to unwind after work and hang out with families and friends.

In frame, Chicken Cutlet with Cheesy Mushroom, Creamy Salted Egg, Ribena Soda and Latte.

Creamy Salted Egg // $18

L'etoile's rendition of this salted egg pasta is a tad spicy as compared to the ones that we can find in other places. I wouldn't say that it is too spicy but at least for me, it is tolerable. If you are still worried, perhaps you could notify the staff not to make it too spicy for you or you could just skip the chilli padi in the pasta.

The salted egg sauce was rich and creamy, but not very jelat. The spaghetti was not too bad, quite springy but it would be good if they could add some salt into the spaghetti when it is boiling to give it more flavour. They were also very generous in the amount of prawns they give. Four prawns is really alot - I mean where can you find places that give you so many prawns that are also big and fresh. Overall, I was quite impressed with this dish.

Chicken Cutlet with Cheesy Mushroom Sauce // $18

I know some of you might say this is a pretty ordinary dish (I did also when it was served onto my table), but the sauce blew me away. This cheesy mushroom is rich, creamy and very addictive. You really need to dip the chicken and the fries into the sauce to know why I said that. The chicken was crispy and tender but without the sauce, the chicken would just be tasteless. Also, you are able to choose three different types of sauces (Cheesy Mushroom, Nachos Cheese, Brown Stock and Cream). If I were you, I would ask the staff nicely if I can try all the sauces. Before I forget, the portion is huge as well. 

Latte // $5.50

Besides the cute latte art at L'etoile, they also ensure that their coffee beans and milk are fresh. They also have 3D latte art which I think you can request the barista to do. Definitely will cheer you up if you are feeling down on that day.

Matcha Azuki Cake // $9.80

They also have a fair range of home-baked cakes for you to choose from. A tad expensive but good and tasty cakes are totally worth the money. The most popular would be the Matcha Azuki Cake and Ondeh Ondeh Cake, while stocks last.

Very modern and European feel, about 10 minutes walk from Farrer Park Mrt Station.

The interior is really very cosy and comfortable. Many customers stayed there to do their work or even watched videos on their laptop.
