Hidden behind the swathes of zigzagging paths that lead towards the top of fort canning hill, @lejardinsingapore is found in Fort Canning Arts Centre (where the bicentennial was hosted) -- a location enveloped in greenery. What adds to the ambience is the Victorian-style interior, which is covered in fresh flowers and wallpaper. This cafe is also by the same people behind @cafedenicolesflower but I preferred this cafe over the other because of its fitting location.

What makes a waffle a croissant? I suppose it's the various layers of flakes in the waffle itself. Quite an interesting creation but it wasn't crispy enough. The scrambled eggs, mushroom ragout and pork tolouse sausage were enjoyable but the rest were quite lacklustre.

This place's redeeming quality is solely its sublime ambience. I didn't even feel compelled to try their fancy overpriced drinks. May be worth a try if your an ambience kind of person but food wise, just grab something else at the city hall or bras basah area.

This pathetic excuse for brunch tasted as bad as it looks. The sunny side egg had absolutely no interesting qualities about it, and the mesclun salad was a sad few strands of greens that felt like residents of the bottom of a salad bag.

I didn't give a 0 rating because the mushroom ragout actually tasted really fresh despite its small size.

3 course and we paid a total of $42 after gst. Seems extra to use Burpple deal as in-store offers 3 course meal deal for $19+, or add on ala set of drink and starter for $5+. Good service, staff were attentative and gave us extra cutlery cuz we were sharing the dessert. nice ambience and will definitely go back to support ywca

We wrapped up our night with a classic pairing of dark chocolate cake & vanilla bean ice cream.. With a slight twist: The cake is flourless. To be honest, when I first ate this from the outside in, I initially found this a little dry on the edges. However, when I got to the center, it was moist & delectable.

The ice cream wasn't too sweet either (yay), & plus points to the drizzle of raspberry coulis on top that gave it nice acidity & Berry Good Flavour.

Ultimately, though, I think my favourite by a narrow margin is the Wagyu Beef Cheeks in Truffle Scented Red Wine Sauce. They were seriously melt-in-your-mouth, & bonus points for the heavenly gratin potato with creamy sauce that came with it.

Execution of all 3 main courses were on point, as the meats were tender & fall off the bone. The pairing of accompaniments were complementary too.

The Braised Lamb Shank in Red Wine & Apricots, Mashed Potato & Seasonal Vegetables was good, & didn't have the gamey taste or small that most find off-putting.

To me, the highlight of a 3-course meal is the main course, & I was baffled by my struggle to choose a favourite out of the 3 options.. Because they were all just excellent.

Loved how the Duck Confit on Apple Roesti & Tangy Mango Relish was Actually Delicious & not overly salty as I tend to find with the others I've had elsewhere.

Having said that, the salad is pretty bomb too. Brie is a palatable cheese - one of my favourites, actually, & the fresh tartness of the fruits go well with the crisp salad leaves. While the presentation could be improved on, I'm glad that I enjoyed this more than I expected.

When asked to choose from the polarizing duo of soup vs. salad, my choice was clear... SOUP ALL THE WAY BABY.

The French Onion Soup with Cheese Crouton was a winner, with the right level of sweetness from the caramelized onions & purity of a good broth. I could drink it on its own, but it was even better topped with oozy cheese & crusty French bread that soaked up the warm & comforting broth. I'd love to have this again.

I cautiously took a first sip of the complimentary San Sirra Mocktail, as I tend to favour cocktails/alcoholic beverages over non-alcoholic ones that tend to overcompensate with saccharine sweetness. This might be the first mocktail that I willingly finish & dare I say, even craved for more.

I loved how this non-alcoholic merlot (U.P. $8++ per glass) didn't have any of that artificial syrupy flavour at all. & packed with sliced fruits, this reminded me somewhat of a sangria - pleasant & fun to drink.

Not much alcohol taste, coffee taste dominant. Unusual to pair tiramisu with a fruity jam
