Lunch was at Le Petit Triskel where Karly and I greeted Kirsty with a cheery "bonjour" and a continental kiss on the cheek. This little place is charming and our waiter was a friendly Frenchman. We used our smattering of schoolgirl French and giggled lots at it and the Frenchman seemed quite amused.
The crepes were very thin. I thought they would completely package up the filling but it was more a case of the edges folded in leaving an open square in the middle. Each crepe came with two small pieces of French baguette avec a dollop of beurre and there was a bowl of salad with a lemony olive oily dressing. Murmurs of appreciation all round and a definitely warm interest in returning for baguettes next time. The table next door all ordered baguette sandwiches which looked great.
Kirsty left promptly to return to work and Karly and I got distracted by the beautiful display case at La Belle Miette as we walked past. Just couldn't resist popping in a buying a couple. The vibrant colours are so enticing. We went for:
- Earl Grey and chocolate (new flavour)
- Pimms and pomegranate
- Caramel et la fleur de sel
A lovely French themed afternoon on a Wednesday. Not much more to say but vive la France for introducing good crepes and macarons!
