Taratata Brasserie is more than a dining option, it is a place where time stands still and memories are made. Amidst the ever-changing gastronomic landscape in Singapore, Taratata Brasserie stays true to its culturally rich, centuries old allure with great fervour reflected both on and off the menu, captivating diners from near and afar.
Located along the enclave of Keong Saik Road in Singapore, this French restaurant is born out of one man’s dream to ‘make people happy’. Bertrand Raguin, Chef and Owner of Taratata Brasserie was driven by his dream of opening a restaurant since high school.
In 2011, his dream came true with Taratata Brasserie, reminiscent of a typical Parisian estaminet where crimson burgundy banquettes adorn the interior, and black and white photo embellished walls tell stories of the romanticism so often associated with France.
At Taratata Brasserie, the Chef takes you on a journey of discovery using his vast knowledge and experience gained from his apprenticeship and culinary training at the Académie d’Orléans-Tours and subsequently at various French restaurants all over the world. Raguin prides himself on his strong commitment to responsible sourcing, serving up dishes prepared with fresh ingredients and mostly imported produce from France.
He shares “At 15, I started my apprenticeship while in culinary school. I was intrigued by how simple ingredients can be combined to result in an explosion of flavours, and how each dish carries the heart and spirit of the person who made it. Food always makes me happy, and I wanted to be able to make other people happy too with my food – there’s no other words to describe the joy of tasting passion on a plate.”
A Multi-sensory Expedition To France At Taratata Brasserie This Autumn Winter Season
Taratata Brasserie welcomes the Autumn Winter Season with the launch of its Lunch and Dinner Set Menus, carefully curated to please even the most discerning palates.
Lunch presents the option of either the 2-course ($38++) or 3-course menu ($45++). You can choose an entrée from a selection of familiar favourites such as the Baked Escargots, Cream of Mushroom Soup or the Duck Liver Mousse infused with Port Wine, while Mains feature hearty French classics such as Duck Confit, Steamed French River Trout and Steak Frites. Desserts are an integral part of a traditional French meal, and an all home-made Chocolate Mousse, Chocolate Lava Cake or Crème Brulee is guaranteed to end the meal on a sweet note.
The 4-Course Dinner Set Menu (at a very modest $78++ per person, two to dine) starts with the classic Lobster Bisque, followed by a choice of Salmon Tartare or Pan-Seared Foie Gras, Kurobuta Pork Casserole, Wagyu Beef Skewers or Coquilles St. Jacques are the featured mains. You can choose from either a dessert or cheese platter.
All dishes served here are prepared à La Minute and never in advance, a rarity at a day and age where establishments prefer to serve at a fast pace so as to encourage high table turnovers.
Opening Hours: Tuesday – Sunday (closed every Monday). Lunch: 12pm – 2.30pm. Dinner: 6pm – 10pm (till midnight on Fridays and Saturdays)
