Parfait de foie de veloulle – Chicken liver was lighter than duck’s liver. Three big chunks, bread, and a big salad.
Plats Enfants (5€) – Kids Beef dinner was beef, pasta, and some veggies. Good enough to satisfy the kids.
Auh pasti – Antipasti was some a big plate of mostly vegetables with some prosciutto. Massive quantity over quality.
Tajine ole oulle aux Pruneaux – Quail with prunes and cous cous was over cooked but otherwise average.
Joues de porc – Pork cheeks were cooked in a stew like fashion and served with saffron rice. Dish was kind of bland.
Crumble Pommes apricots – Apple crumble dessert was a bit small but otherwise a decent dessert.
Ananas – Pineapple dessert was way too sweet.
L’ Epice and Love had friendly and accommodating service from the owner. The service got really slow when it as full. Prices are low, making this a popular space. Much better food can be had elsewhere but at twice the price. It was nice to experience but the food at La Fourchette and Hiely Lucullus was far better. Email address: [email protected]
