We started with a glass of my favourite (Veuve Cliquot Champagne) which, through the course of the evening turned into a bottle, because we loved the atmosphere of this place and had such a great time.As we were a little late, we omitted the appetizers and went straight for the main course, which wasn't on the menu any more, but the friendly staff said they would be happy to oblige our craving for "Moules Frites" (mussels with French fries).The presentations was really cute - the fries came in a
As we were a little late, we omitted the appetizers and went straight for the main course, which wasn't on the menu any more, but the friendly staff said they would be happy to oblige our craving for "Moules Frites" (mussels with French fries).
The presentations was really cute - the fries came in a little basket that looks just like the frying baskets you see in restaurants in France...
The Moules were just perfect: They served the really small mussels that you usually only get in Europe (very sweet and aromatic flesh; must more intense than the usual fare). The Moules were just right, tender but not overcooked and with a generous juis and pretty little gem-like nuggets of lemon that added the zesty flair to the amazing aroma. I dare say these were the best Moules I've had outside of Europe so far. The French fries were golden and had a nice crunch to them while retaining a fluffy texture on the inside - just how we like them. We were offered second helpings of fries, but instead of giving in to our inner pig we indulged in our inner hog and ordered some delicious desserts.
My chocoholic friend ordered a rather devilish cocolate cake that was filled with hot chocolate "lava" like a fondant and came topped with a very nice icecream and a dollop of praline. It didn't last long on his plate so I think it is safe to say that it was excellent. I went for the Paris-Brest, one of my favourite desserts at La Marmite and while it was very yummy, I was a little disappointed that it came with pistaccios than with the usual almonds that I love so much. Still, it was rather delicious and I didn't leave a morsel. Overall, a successful dinner. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and we really enjoyed the relaxed unpretentious atmosphere and the nice background music. It felt just like dining in Paris. We'll be back for sure!
