“Délifrance was the first French-themed café to introduce authentic French bakery products in Singapore,” said Alain Leduc, Franchise Manager of Délifrance Headquarters in Paris. The bakery has come a long way since it opened in 1983, and recently celebrated its 30th anniversary.
The classic café realised that it’s time for a refresh touch to keep up with the trend, so they did a revamp to all their outlets in Singapore and launched their first Michelin-starred chef created sandwich. This came at the right time as most Singaporeans have registered the “Michelin” word in their gastronomy dictionary.
The sandwich, “Le Paris-Singapore,” is created by 1-star Michelin chefs Jacques and Laurent Pourcel from France. It is a fusion of French and Asian flavours, which consists of French baguette, roasted chicken marinated in Thai chilli sauce, Japanese algae and mayonnaise-oyster spread.
Besides the sandwich, Delifrance has also revamped its “hot meals” menu to go with the new contemporary dining concept – “Joie De Vivre” (Joy of Life). For a limited time, the café will be serving dishes like Magret De Canard Fumé (a smoked duck dish), Provençal Braisé Lamb Shank and two versions of the classic Aglio Olio pasta dish – Scallops & Caviar Aglio e Olio and Sausages Aglio e Olio.
We secretly wish they would convert the old school Roti John with French baguette and Dijon mustard – that would be truly Le Singapore.
The limited edition menu will be available until 31st of August at selected outlets, including Singapore Post Centre, Tampines Mall, Clifford Centre, United Square and Causeway Point – just to name a few.For listing and business hours enquiries, please call +65 68749622.
