Déjeuner

I know, I've blogged about Brasserie Blanc before


Although, this time I'm giving a glimpse of the main menu instead of the lunch deal, so maybe you can let me off this time.

As I was home for reading week, I headed off to the Beaconsfield branch with my family for a spot of lunch.





The world's smallest diet coke.



Chez and I were the only ones to order starters. For her, the cheese soufflé:


It was (apparently) light, fluffy and delicious. It would have been especially good with the cheese sauce poured over the top, but Chez isn't one for mixing wet and dry. (odd)

I wasn't feeling particularly enticed by any of the starters so opted for the bread basket which, as it goes, was pretty fancy in itself.

It came with a dipping trio of garlic aioli, olive tapenade and olive oil with balsamic vinegar.





Now for the mains:


A big, steaming bowl of moles frites for Chez.

I have to admit, I do love the pot they came in and was tempted to take it home. (Similar, equally lovely one here.)



Mum and dad both propped for the giant burgers with the sweetest, shiniest brioche buns.





And, surprise surprise, I chose the steak with béarnaise and fries.

(And a tomato which was, of course, left on the plate.)





Then along came pudding...


I don't know why this amused me so much, but it really did. ^

Chez chose the chocolate soufflé with a teeny tiny ball of ice cream (two soufflés in one meal?! and they were both incredible according to the lady herself.)




And for me, a nice big slab of apple tart with vanilla ice cream...



...which I polished off nicely.


I really like Brasserie Blanc.

It's the kind of place where you could go back time and time again and have something different but equally delicious each time. 

I'd recommend the steak or the salmon, which I had on another occasion. The scallops are pretty good to start, too.
