It’s a beautiful day today! It’s Sunday and I’m still on my summer break 😉 It feels elating to wake up on a Sunday knowing that you don’t have papers to write or exams to study for. Like, seriously. It felt like a commercial, waking up with the summer breeze brushing your hair. Just kidding. It was the aircon.
(You should see my face later it’s really different from the pre-summer break one I used to sport)
After going to mass with my best bud Reena, we decided to head to Century City Mall for a Sunday stroll (and lunch, of course).
We’ve been hearing talks about the newly opened Le Petit Soufflé – the Franco-Japanese brainchild of pastry chefs Miko Aspiras and Kristine Lotilla.
For someone who loves both French and Japanese cuisine, I was greatly intrigued by this idiosyncratic concept. It also so happened that Reena and I were famished and we thought, why not? Hence, our feet brought us to LE PETIT SOUFFLÉ!
The Interior. Just one of the many cozy nooks. Can I stay here forever?
When we got in we were mesmerized by the ambience, the interior, and twinkling lights that ultimately won us over.
One of the Dining Areas
We chose to be seated at a table surrounded by these stunning walled foliages (which made us feel like we were at Ina Garten’s outdoor dining area).
Reena and I happily browsing through the menu
For this blog, I have decided to rate the dishes I try with what I call ‘Des Points’. Yay!
Here’s the legend:
Pancetta Carbonara (P350.00). I’d give this:
Squid-Ink Rice (P395.00). I’d give this:
Valrhona Guanaja 70% Dark Chocolate Soufflé with Vanilla Crème Anglaise (P350.00). I’d give this:
The pasta was so-so as what you can derive from my rating. However, props to the cook for its presentation! Its plating is really beautiful. Reena actually wanted to try the Crispy Ramen Chicken, but they only had the Squid-Ink Rice, so that’s what she ordered. WELL IT CERTAINLY WAS A GOOD DECISION. The rice itself is absolutely delicious, all the more with the variety of seafood added! Warning: your lips will turn black from devouring this dish, so better have your powder and lipstick prepared 😉
Now, let’s talk about THE SOUFFLÉ. Unfortunately, I only have 5 Des Points to give for this one. If I could, I would give this dessert a million Des Points. MY GOSH. This dessert is hands down, the best soufflé I’ve ever had. Its moistness will leave you paralyzed in a food coma. I almost forgot who I was at that moment. If I wasn’t full from the main dishes, I would have ordered this a dozen times. PERFECT is the word that best encapsulates what this dessert is about.
Happy and satisfied ladies!
Overall, we had a wonderful dining experience and we would surely be back! I highly recommend this place, especially to those who love to wind down in cozy places.
