Sofitel Singapore City Centre's executive chef Jean-Charles Dubois knows how to do a great roast chicken, so the addition of the French Roast Chicken to the Racines (Tel: 6428-5000) menu is good news. The corn-fed chicken (from $25) is grilled in a rotisserie at low temperature till tender and served with a choice of two speciality sauces. You can add sides, so try the ratatouille or mashed potatoes. Visit sofitelsingaporecitycentre.oddle.me/en_SG for delivery.
