Media Tasting at Coucou Swiss Restaurant and Bar
Who would have thought that there is an authentic Swiss restaurant and bar on the tiny island of Singapore? At Coucou, you can expect gastronomical fine recipes specially brought over from Switzerland. Not forgetting exquisite wines imported from Switzerland.
Coucou is helmed by Executive Chef Sebastian Donati.
His impressive culinary is recognised by the GaultMillau Swiss Guide and was also listed in the Michelin Guide. Get ready for traditional iconic Swiss dishes not commonly found in Singapore. Some of the Swiss dishes which include Rösti with Sour Cream & toasty Cheese Raclette, Tartare de Boeuf and Meringues & Double Crème de la
Spotted Fondue Moitié-Moitié (S$35 per person) on almost every table and we can’t wait to order too! Happy to know that this addictive stretchy, gooey cheese dip is made from the original Swiss recipe. There are two types of cheese here – Gruyère AOP & Vacherin Fribourgeois AOP from Producer Michael Mathier.
I can recollect the finesse of this cheese fondue while typing this article. The nice salinity and earthy of the cheese complements with bread and potato. It leaves a distinctive but not an overpowering flavour.
Exceptional Swiss wines exclusive to Coucou enhance the enjoyment of dining in a Swiss restaurant.
Crispy outside with gooey cheese oozing out is definitely a dream come true for cheese lovers. Malakoff et Salade Coucou (S$14) is a perfect hot appetiser to kick off a meal. We feel it’s brilliant that they served it with cool and crisp bites of curly salad so you don’t feel “jelak”.
Being a rosti fan, I’m a big fan of this Rösti & Saucisse de Saint-Gall (S$24). Most of the rosti dishes are made with coarsely grated potato, the slightly finer grated potato has taken a shine to it! The flavour and light crunch is so good for you to devour it instantly. Topped with this veal sausage served up tender and mild flavoured and goes really well with onion confit.
Filet Mignon de Porc aux Morilles (S$38), an elegant variation of juicy pork tenderloin with a slight pink in the middle served with morel mushroom sauce and a side of your choice. We have picked soft and chewy Swiss dumpling. These Swiss dumplings brought back the good days I enjoyed in Europe.
If you haven’t try Coupe Suisse (S$14), then you’re missing out! This is one of the best dessert combinations! Cold vanilla ice cream topped with hot Swiss chocolate and a layer of chantilly cream that is light and fluffy like the clouds with perfectly melt-in-your-mouth luscious!
The Swiss restaurant features an intricate “Chinese Baroque” architectural design in a 3-storey conservation shophouse. Outdoor seatings in the courtyard are available too! Your partner will be amazing with this dining experience at Coucou Swiss Restaurant and Bar.
