Review: Cafe Les Parisiennes

I really like Les Parisiennes a vintage French fashion and Interior Design store located at Shahpur Jat. A fact you would know from my constant coverage of it in StyleCity. Hence, I decided my review of their gorgeous French Café will be a bit biased and requested Suhasini Mehta, an upcoming chef and Food writer to try it out and give in her opinions. Here is what she has to say about the French Café at Les Parissienes.

Along one of the narrow lanes of Shahpur Jat, amidst the quaint colourful shops, there lies the elegantly furbished Les Parisiennes – the concept store which strives to give you the homely French experience. With its white brick walls, aesthetic styling and mellifluous music that fills its air it succeeds in providing just that. At Les Parisiennes you can purchase a variety of locally sourced goods such as clothes for women and children, candles and furniture all of which mirror the feel of the store. But your French experience is incomplete if you leave without trying out the delectable treats that the café has to offer. Keeping in touch with its homely feel, the café offers a different menu each day, so it never gets boring, and its laid back environment lets you relax as it coddles you in its home like warmth.

I was looking for a complete French experience and that’s exactly what I got from their mid-week lunch menu of Zucchini and Goat cheese quiche and Tomato and Mozzarella salad, which was accompanied by a refreshing glass of ice tea and finally encored by delicious homemade mango ice cream and Madeleines. The quiche, with its typically French taste, made for a filling meal without being heavy and the salad that accompanied it held its own. It wasn’t just greenery to fill up the plate, with a variety of lettuce and rocket leaves tossed in a light vinaigrette; it packed a subtle punch lined with sesame flavour. The quiche was delightfully delicate but packed with taste with its creamy texture and a flourish of oregano, on the downside the base of the pastry was a tad plastic and chewy, but no complaints other than that.  The Tomato and Mozzarella salad was fresh and juicy and with a kick of chopped parsley it’s just the dish for summers. The encore was sung by the mango ice cream and Madeleine, apart from just being typically French, this refreshing and delicious combo can make Indian summers feel good! The sheer authenticity of the ice cream had us smacking our lips, it was pure mango! The Madeleine beautifully accompanied the ice cream and is a must try French treat.
Visiting Les Parisiennes was a delightful experience for me and I hope it will be the same for you.

Style and the City- Shahpur Jat

So at the previous evening in Lado Sarai I had met some store owners of stores at Shahpur Jat, who then invited me to visit their stores for Day 2 of India Design and also invite me for Shahpur Jat Open day which is on March 10th, for which I will provide you more information as and when I know. Since I have not visited Shahpur Jat in really long and heard about it a lot (apparently it is like a rural sister of Hauz Khas village which I love) I wanted to go have a look and see what it has to offer. As I went during the day I did manage to visit more stores than I had on the previous day, some I had never been to before and some were brand new,so here they are Les Parisiennes, Lila, Second Floor Studio and Olivia Dar.
