From the name I thought the restaurant was French food, but upon scanning the varieties on the menu, it was clear that there was some Japanese flavor to it.Was there on a weekday during lunch so there were lunch sets available. I believe the specials change everyday. Lunch hour was rather busy and the servers were rather flustered.I always like to order Escargot whenever it's offered on the menuEscargot Dish was served hot with the fancy shell holdersClose up of the escargotThe garlic that came
Was there on a weekday during lunch so there were lunch sets available. I believe the specials change everyday. Lunch hour was rather busy and the servers were rather flustered.
I always like to order Escargot whenever it's offered on the menu Escargot Dish was served hot with the fancy shell holders Close up of the escargot
The garlic that came with the escargot was rather crisp. I think I prefer escargots served and baked in the oven with butter as opposed to how it was prepared here. The cheese didn't quite melt in the French Onion soup and I thought that it might have come in the puff pastry. It was rather salty, so the bread was pretty much all gone before I realized that I was on my last bite. It's a pity as i believe the bread would have been a good complement to hte squid ink pasta The tomato soup was slightly disappointing. It felt like it came in a can. I guess I appreciate it when it feels like a lot of effort is put into the dish that you're consuming. At least it wasn't Cream of Tomato (powder)
I think I was more let down by the main courses If I don't recall correctly, the Hamburger Steak was one of their specialty/highlights. The meat was composed of minced beef and I guess I was let down by the quality of the meat and presentation of the dish. The Japanese hardly gets the squid ink wrong as they even sell squid ink pasta in their supermarkets. Mushrooms were a nice addition to the dish, but I felt like there was very little squid pieces.
The fruit tarts look amazing and I saw a lot of people ordering it.
If I go back, I believe that would be on my to order list and I'd probably go there for tea.
