You know you have those moments when you think to your self I am in absolute food heaven? Well that happened today, it is also only round the corner, and that has made my whole weekend. Today was our first visitation to the newly opened Do.Main Deli & Bistrot, 266 Tanjong Katong. Time to see my mate Stephane, and sample his new wares a this cracking location, you may know him from his other joint Bar Roque?
I would suggest 100% that you book first at Do.Main Deli & Bistrot, 266 Tanjong Katong, as it is absolutely superb grub, and monster busy. So make sure you give them a bell on 6348 1406 to not be disappointed. It is on the small side, but has seating in and out, but seriously do not disappoint yourself – BOOK, because believe you will be sorely pissed if you don’t get chance to eat here.
I have to say that I had some of the very finest food here today that I have ever had. They state it themselves, our artisanal daily goodness, was certainly served up today. More to the food we ate in a second, but just highlight this place is bistro, deli, coffee shop, bakery and patisserie all in one. See what I mean about foodie heaven. I could have sat there all day watching the punters come and go, and the kitchen staff churning out amazing food, loaves, buns, croissants and more. I officially am in love with Do.Main Deli & Bistrot, 266 Tanjong Katong.
Like all new restaurants they are bedding down still, and Stephane himself said they are still refining the menu. But truly do not worry re that, just get yourself down here to sample some wonderful French fair, some rustic in its style, but gourmet in taste. This is now up there as a Kennett Family favourite – it is indeed Die Die Must Try.
See what I mean about that kitchen, tray after tray of breads, buns, croissants and the like. Of course because of Easter there is cinnamon in the air, as they were churning out stunning hot cross buns in the dozens.
And here is the great man himself, Chef Stephane. Great work from you and the crew my friend.
Simply sublime pastries, croissant, hot cross buns, chocolate croissants, all slightly warm still as just from the oven. Could pastries ever get better, I sincerely doubt it.
See what I mean – it is a little small. Do not forget to book!
Up first for our sharing table today, was the tomato soup, which has two melty cheeses within it. I am not bull-shitting here when I say this is one of the very best soups I have ever had, and without doubt the very best tomato soup ever consumed by this mouth. Incredible!
Washed down with a few Coronas, and an absolute must of a Bloody Mary to boot.
UP next some over warmed Camembert with toasted bread and home-made pickles. Oh yes – winner! Get in there and spread the melty cheese on some of that home made, crusty and toasted bread. OMG!
Pause and take a deep breath Brian, it’s time to describe the ham. This is another first. The absolute hand-down winner of any ham ever consumed by this 50 year old. This is just mind-blowingly good. If I remember rightly, I nearly passed out when I had the first bite, it is specially selected French ham, smoked, boiled in brine and then slow roast at something like 66 degrees for 16 hours. It is simply off the fucking charts good – we even brought some home. The salmon I will let Mary & Ollie explain as I, as you know, will not eat the fair from the sea. They said the salmon tasted like fresh salmon but with smokiness too. “It was like Japanese sushi, but smoked. We had the best of both worlds!” We would come back just for more of these too. It’s worth a trip just to get your mouth on some of this ham, it is absolutely 100% DIE DIE MUST TRY. Stephane be proud of this mate, stellar food! I am working our how to buy these too in bulk as the family is driving me hard to get more, and this would be a winner for ChillaxBBQ too.
Up next is another OMG moment. Two holy shit food moments, and one holy f*ck moment all on one platter, the Do.Main Sharing Platter. Rotisserie Roast Chicken (special chickens flown in to Malaysia from France, and grain fed and free range), a medium rare Beef Wellington with home-made puffed pastry and then a HOLY F*CK moment – the pork pie. Jesus this is good. Home-made puff pastry, roasted pork belly sausage meat, with mushroom, and some fresh herbs. This is a pork pie on steroids – well not actually as all Stephane’s ingredients are organic ha ha! It is an amazing piece of food! I loved this, as we all did!
Have a look at my little plate. I tell you that beef Wellington was ACE, like one big hunk of beef butter, so tender and then with a crunch of the pastry. Heavenly.
Macarons on offer for walk-ins
Some of the amazing sweet pastries and desserts on offer, again all freshly baked
Check these bad boys out!
But I could not resist the temptation of the creme brulee, and I am so so glad I had this. It is a cracker. Perfect crunch and snap on the top, and milky creaminess underneath. Match made in heaven. A belter.
So there you have it folks. Our experience today of the incredible new joint from Stephane, Do.Main Deli & Bistrot, 266 Tanjong Katong. Funnily Do is meant to be Dough for the bread, and French for hand is Main. Do the math. You simply must come here. If you like food it is a must. Try what we tried, but also get in to that menu. I am gong duck confit and escargots next time. Stephane, be proud mate, it is QUALITY. Pop down, say hi to Stephane and his crew. If you do, it is 100% that you will – ENJOY!!!
