Le Chasseur at Eunos

We haven't stopped by Le Chasseur (樂食軒) for the longest time. It's been at its current Eunos location for almost two years now. Situated in a foodcourt within the industrial area, while it's only a 10-minute walk from Eunos MRT station, it's a bit far for us. But we try to go occasionally. Just ignore the name okay, it's kinda got historical meaning for its owner-chef. No air-conditioning, no problem. Dress light and we're all good. We love its chicken claypot rice which uses basmati grains instead of the usual jasmine rice. The eatery declared that it doesn't sprinkle additional MSG into its food.

When L stepped into town, it was the perfect reason to gather up a small table of four for her to have a taste of what zi char is. She didn't have time to do that with us during the last trip. She was kinda done with crabs, prawns and shellfish. So we skipped the seafood zi char stalls and the standard crab items. Le Chasseur totally hit a spot with its other stir-fried dishes. Home-style. Ordered very conservatively as we erm had a first round of nibbles at Amoy Street Food Center, and happy gin cocktails at The Spiffy Dapper.

L was totally into laksa on this trip and aimed to eat as many variations as possible. Not with those blood cockles though. She fell in love with the spices of the otah and was thrilled with the otah omelette, and also sambal kangkong. She could easily find dou miao back at home at a Din Tai Fung, so we had the big pea shoots instead. She has never really done good clear Asian soups except the Thai tom yam variations. She couldn't stop sipping the piquant salted vegetables and duck soup. Her tastebuds were completely charmed by it. Le Chasseur does a lovely one. We love it too. It's probably the only dish we would order as a large portion. Oof.
