Antoinette Restaurant – Redefining The French Classic Savoury Fare


Antoinette Restaurant is inspired by the famous last queen of France, Marie Antoinette. Conceived by Chef Pang Kok Keong the restaurant today boasts 3 outlets: its flagship store at 30 Penhas Road opened in June 2011; a second at Mandarin Gallery opened 2 months later; and the third and largest at 3100 square feet, opened in 2012 at Palais Renaissance.

Other than the gorgeously decorated restaurant, Chef Pang’s Antoinette Restaurant features a menu that celebrates the most definitive of French classic savoury fare and the most exquisite of desserts and pastries.

The restaurant has unveiled an expanded a new ‘all-day’ menu featuring French classics that have stood the test of time. “I’m not about being trendy or hipster,” explains Chef Pang. “It’s about a level of comfort a connection, a continuity, with the past.”

This savory list is anchored by some familiar Antoinette crowd-pleasers. We picked a few of our favorites from the newly launched menu, and you can now safely impress your date with these choices.

Editor’s Note: After the dishes above, you may be tempted to skip this, but if you do, you will be stabbing yourself with a blunt fork for not ordering this masterpiece. Try it.

We didn’t have room for desserts, but, I’ve always been a huge fan of Chef Pang’s Strawberry Short Cake. Ever since he left Canele, that place was never the same. No, wait, all the branches have ceased operations. These new dishes is set to impress and tantalize the most discerning tastebuds out there.

Not to be missed!
