Daniel Boulud DB Bistro Moderne MBS
I remembered the day when all the chefs in Marina Bay Sands did a food tasting with the media. I was one of the media flown from Malaysia for this special occasion. They called it: World Class Dining at Marina Bay Sands Singapore Preview: Food Tasting session with Santi Santamaria, Guy Savoy, Tetsuya Wakuda, Daniel Boulud and Justin Quek

After a few years and back in MBS again, I have no doubt to dine at Daniel Boulud’s Bistro, DB Bistro Moderne. I met most of the chefs during that special food tasting and only Daniel Boulud emailed me thanking me personally (or his assistant did it on his behalf). It was a little gesture but I was over the moon.
Even the staffs in DB Bistro Moderne are well trained. We were at MBS to watch a show and we went in like 45 minutes before the show. Their staffs informed us that it will be better for us to dine later as the restaurant was packed. For that, they waited for us until the show was over and we were the last guest to arrive. We were the last customer of the day and everyone was waiting for us to show up.
Since dinner turns supper, we ordered two simple dishes with one cocktail.
Mussels, Clams, Shrimp, Fennel, Saffron Broth
Black mussels are hard to find in Malaysia but not in Singapore. I love the freshness of the mussels, clams and shrimps and also the taste of it. The broth might be quite overwhelming probably because of saffron. However, I truly enjoyed this.
Cachaca, fresh Kiwi, lime juice and sugar cane muddled topped with soda water.
Don’t be fooled by its colour. This is very refreshing with a little kick at the end.
Alsatian Flat Bread, Fromage Blanc, Bacon, Onion.
While I try to pronounce the name of this dish, I will call it a square pizza. This is lovely but the sides are slightly burnt. The taste and everything is good.
Overall, I enjoyed dining in DB Bistro Moderne. I hope to taste more but it was just two of us. The food was definitely good but no surprises. Thus, I might have tasted hints of Daniel Boulud’s works but will definitely come back for more. Please do not be surprised that dining at DB Bistro Moderne is not that dear at all.
