Le Loir dans la Théière, Paris
Sunday, September 4, 2011

Around the corner from the famous L’As du Fallafel, is a small, cozy brunch place called Le Loir dans la Théière. It was on the list of places recommended by my last manager. Since the falafel he told me to eat was so good, I had to try another place on the list.

Nelson and I had brunch at Le Loir dans la Théière and we both really enjoyed our selections. It’s too bad we were so full after our savoury dishes because the desserts looked really good. Unlike the dainty, small pastries you find in boutique bakeries, their tarts were rustic, oversized and smelled of home-baked goodness. It’ll be on my list of places for an afternoon tea another time.

Artichoke and parmesan omelette. A good french styled omelette, soft and gooey on the inside. Why can't all omelettes be cooked this way? The artichoke filling was very nice as well.

Eggplant Tart: This was tart packed full of eggplant, a bit of zucchini and some cheese on top. A really good brunch item.

Hot Chocolate. This was a thick, creamy, extra rich hot chocolate, one of the best I've ever had. I haven't had too many good ones in North America. Often, I find it way too sweet and watery but this was was rich without being sweet. I did find it a bit too heavy to finish on my own, and a bit dry in the mouth afterwards. They could've lightened this with more milk and it would still be good.

 

Well? Let me know what you think. Write me a comment below!
