Audace Bar and Restaurant

Audace Bar and Restaurant

Audace (pronounced Aw-daz) is a quaint little casual French restaurant in the heart of Little India. The Mbassadors had the privilege of whetting our palates at their restaurant most recently and we have but only good things to say about our experience.

Chef Jeremy Gillon helms the kitchen and he produces gastronomical creations that leaves diners in awe and wonder (us included). In a brief conversation I had with him, he mentioned that he changes the menu every couple of months to keep things fresh for his diners.

As you enter the restaurant from the get-go, you’ll notice an assortment of herbs (with names I literally cannot pronounce) lined up just above the kitchen service counter. Chef Jeremy actually visits France every now and then to forage for his own herbs! There are herbs that are reminiscent of prawn crackers and seaweed, there are some that taste like oats and there was even one that smelt like chamomile!

The Food

La Reine Des Pres

With Celtuce as the main ingredient in this dish, I did not know what to expect. (I’ve never had Celtuce in my life) Texture wise, it resembles that of an extremely tender asparagus and has a mildly sour after taste. I could eat it on its own for days even and not grow sick of it.

However, Chef Jeremy takes it to the next level with pickled onions, salted seaweed, a sweet syrup extracted from one of his herbs and a parsley garnish. This mash up of flavors produces a well-balanced and meticulously thought of dish that raises the expectations for the other dishes that follow after.

La Matricaire

The initial thoughts I had about this dish were with regards to how fresh the Mackerel was. There’s no denying its freshness. Any fresher and you’ll have to catch it yourself.

Then we delve a little deeper and look past the first layer of taste to find the spinach with its creamy notes and semi-mushy texture. The Matricaire oil at the base has a pleasant chamomile scent. Don’t worry about the green color, it’s just the chlorophyll from the spinach. I feel it adds another dimension of creaminess to the dish. Imagine all these flavors augmented by a dash of horseradish to give this dish an added “oomph” or complexity. Brilliant.


Cote De Veall

I think a moment of silence is necessary for the calf that contributed to this AMAZING main course.


Okay, moment’s over.

You can tell that Chef Jeremy places a lot of emphasis on respecting the dish and its ingredients. The meat was tender and cooked to perfection with each bite just bursting with flavor. Whilst I would once again say I could enjoy the veal just cooked as is, Chef Jeremy utilizes all his experience and expertise to provide a deeper and more meaningful way to appreciate the veal.

This dish is all about texture. There’s the Rutabaga which gives this dish an added crunch due to its raddish-like nature. Then there’s the caperberries that are strategically thrown in so that you get an occasional seedy and fruity bite.

You can be sure that you won’t leave Audace feeling like the portions were lacking because this main course is HUGE! For the price you’re paying, it’s just so much value!

Swing by these places after dinner and set up a good mood for the rest of the night!

1. Café Siêm Rêap by IndoChine

Holland Village is as good a place as any to get some drinks, and one of the best places in Holland Village to get a drink at would definitely be at Café Siêm Rêap by IndoChine.

With 1-for-1 drinks all night long, you’d have a be a little crazy to not want to check this place out.

Draught Beers start at $18 for a full pint, but since it’s 1-for-1, that’s $9 for 1!

The offer is available everyday at their Holland Village and Chijmes outlets, and from Monday to Saturday at their 47 Club Street outlet and Suntec City Sky Garden outlet.

If you’re still feeling a bit peckish from dinner, fret not! They’ve got a pretty decent food menu you can order from. It is after all, an IndoChinese Restaurant.

Cafe Siêm Rêap by IndoChine is at 44 Lorong Mambong, Holland Village, Singapore 277697.

Opening Hours:

Monday to Thursday: 1500 – 0100

Nothing beats kicking back with some great live music, so if you or your significant other are into live music and gigs, Stage is the place for you.

The staff here are so nice, they even obliged to my request to have 2 half pints poured into a full pint glass!

Having live music is one thing, but being able to request your favourite songs, having them done well, and even the chance to go up on stage to jam with the band? That’s something I haven’t found almost anywhere else.

Special shoutouts to Alex, Deborah and Joshua, the incredible musicians who play at Stage!

Stage is at 60 Prinsep Street, Singapore 188664.

Opening Hours:

Monday – Sunday: 1600 onwards

3. Al Capone’s Ristorante & Bar

Cheap, cheap booze. That’s what you’ll get here.

Yeap, straight to the point here. It really doesn’t get much better than that, does it?

Oh, it does?

date night al capone for drinks

Whoa, that’s a really good deal!

Wait, what’s that?

date night al capone for drinks

Okay, I know where I’ll be this weekend.

All jokes aside, there’s a catch. These bottles don’t come with mixers unfortunately, and mixers cost of $5 for a few measly cans.

If good, cheap liquor is your thing, then definitely give Al Capone’s at Scape a visit.

Oh, I almost forgot. The best part? There’s no GST Charge, no Cover Charge, and no Service Charge. so all the prices you see are what you pay.

Sound good to you?

Check them out at 2 Orchard Link, Singapore 237978.

Opening Hours:

Monday – Friday, Sunday: 1730 – 0300

Saturday: 1715 – 0300
