7/23 Brasserie Cicou

By She Said

My daughter and I get giddy with excitement whenever we have family visiting from abroad because it's the best excuse to eat out! My aunt and cousin were recently in town from Canada and we had the pleasure of dining out with them on several occasions.

I made a special request that we try out one of the restaurants on our summer list, and my aunt most willingly obliged. Thank you so much for treating us to a delicious French lunch at Brasserie Cicou. Until your next visit!

Brasserie Cicou by Chef Cyrille Soenen features a very relaxed, casual setting.

 We love the personal little details- colorful shawls for when you're feeling a bit chilly and reading glasses with different grades if you need help reading the menu.

A cozy lounge where you can choose to have your coffee and dessert or just to hang out after your meal.

What we had for lunch... 

Leeks and Goat Cheese Quiche

Coquilletes- bacon, mushroom & parmesan pasta

Pork Chop "a la Charcutiere"- served with mashed potatoes, romaine salad, shallots, pickles, white wine, beef jus, mustard, tomatoes

Seafood Bouillabaisse- fish, prawns, squid, clams, baby potatoes served with croutons, aioli, rouille sauce

Paillard de Boeuf- grilled, flattened US beef with homemade fries, mesclun salad

Croque Madame- white bread, gruyere, butter, bacon, egg

Kouign Amann- caramelized laminated sweet dough, salted caramel ice cream. Definitely one of Manila's best desserts! 

Chocolat Moelluex- fondant, vanilla ice cream, macaron, chocolate sauce

Banana Souffle- light, airy dessert with bananas, nuts and chocolate syrup

We went for a late Saturday lunch so, we practically had the whole place to ourselves. Although service was a bit slow, the food, most especially the Kouign Amann more than made up for it :) Enjoy your weekend!
