31 Bar & Kitchen at 31 Keong Saik Road S(089138) - The Signature Dessert Crème Brûlée S$8.00 per serving

This is the Signature dessert Crème Brûlée priced at S$8.00 & is served at 31 Bar & Kitchen, a French Gastrobar newly opened at 31 Keong Saik Road since April 2014, & co-founded by Frenchman Andre Rannaud & 3 other partners.  

31 Bar & Kitchen is a French Gastrobar co-founded by Frenchman André Rannaud, 45, from Lyon, France. An F&B veteran with 27 years' experience, André Rannaud has been active in the F&B industry, having stayed in Singapore for the past 15 years. Together with Franck Herbaux [MD of Estima Consulting (S) Pte Ltd], Daphane Wang & Fabien Giordano, André Rannaud started 31 Bar & Kitchen in April 2014 after closure of Provence Le Restaurant. Estima Gourmet Pte Ltd is the current holding company of 31 Bar & Kitchen - a French Gastrobar with Singapore influence & serves mainly Modern International Cuisine with Asian spices. The kitchen is helmed by Executive Chef Tan Chee Leong who brings with him more than 23 years' culinary experience.

The Crème Brûlée is made using Core Ingredients - Egg, Vanilla bean, sugar, cream. 

How it is prepared - The egg & sugar are first blended in a mixer. The cream is then slowly simmered then added slowly to the egg mix. Lastly add the Vanilla bean to the egg & cream mix. 

Finally pour the mixture into ramekins & place them into baking pans with boiling water & bake for 35 to 40 minutes till the custards are set. Remove them & cool to room temperature, then chill them in chiller until firm. 

To serve, simply drizzle thin layer of sugar on top of the ramekin & torch with kitchen blowtorch till the sugar caramelises. Allow the caramelised sugar to set at room temperature before serving. 

Tasting Notes - Crème Brûlée happens to be one of my must have desserts whenever I check out new cafes, bars & restaurants. In my humble opinion, if an F&B outfit goes to great length to produce an incredibly tasty Crème Brûlée then all its other products would definitely be of an equally remarkable standard. 

Here at 31 Bar & Kitchen Executive Chef Tan Chee Leong makes a darn tasty Crème Brûlée, the custard is silky smooth soft melt in your mouth texture & consistency, sweet in flavor, but not overly sweet though. The caramelised top is torched just about the correct color not burnt nor charred. Chef Tan even bothered to lift up the bar a little higher by incorporating a dainty strawberry on top to garnish. The portion is just about right for a delightful bite.
