Food & Dining My Kids

Brasserie CiCou

On our way to have my nail enhancement done at a Salon in Greenhills, Ate & I took a slight diversion to have lunch first at BRASSERIE CICOU. School was almost starting for her that I wanted to take her to nice places before she becomes too busy for dates again.

Brasserie CiÇou, located at the ground floor of the OB Montessori building, provides French food with contemporary eastern delicacy. Originally from Paris and after more than 15 years in Manila & being married to a Filipina (Chef Anna), Chef Cyrille Soenen -whose nickname is CiÇou, opened Brasserie CiÇou in Greenhills in 2008.

Ate & I were floored upon seeing the inside! What a wonderful surprise. Looking at the simple white facade, you wouldn’t think you’d walk into something as romantic as this. <3

The lovely interiors brought a happy smile to my beautiful Ate who wasn’t feeling well that day, and yet still came with me so I wouldn’t be alone. <3

An indoor garden! <3 I felt like I was in The Secret Garden. So lovely! <3

The wall mural continues on to the restrooms. Too bad I didn’t get to see what’s inside as we were rushing for my 1 PM appointment next door. :'(

It’s like being transported to the medieval times.

Definitely a date place! <3 I love how not every square inch is greedily set up with a table. This way, diners have room to look around & visit each nook.

And look at the beautiful chandeliers scattered throughout..

Having just had breakfast, we decided to go for a light lunch..

Complimentary bread. They are nice enough to ask if you want more, it just takes a while.. a long while as they bake it fresh.

Egg Cocotte with Tomato, Asparagus, Basil 160 php.

Fresh Oysters 650 php. 6 pcs., lemon wedges, sauce mignonette.

Caesar Salad 300 php (single). Romaine, anchovies, bacon, gruyere, chicken.

Salad with Warm Chevre (new).

Salad with Chevre 320 php. Mesclun salad, fresh goat cheese, French style.

My only disappointment is this Croque Madame 450 php. (White/Wheat bread, gruyere, butter, bacon, egg). See that egg? Or is it supposed to be like that? Uhhmm.. I don’t think so. :'( Possible title: The rise & (immediate) fall of an egg.

But this dessert platter quickly came to its rescue! <3 La Grande Assiette 550 php featuring: creme brulee, Kouing Aman Caramelized laminated sweet dough salted caramel ice cream (THE BEST!!!), Strawberry Macaron with Home-made Vanilla Ice Cream, Rustic Berry Tart, and Chocolate Moelleux. All were good so I strongly suggest you get this platter for dessert even if you’re dining alone. SKIP THE MAIN & GO FOR THIS!!! <3

As we paid our bill, we got this SECRET ENVELOPE! And you know I can’t keep secrets right.. so I opened it after 1 day. Hindi talaga ako mapakali even after Ate hid it from me coz I’m not supposed to open it. Kinalkal ko talaga kwarto niya hahaha! i was thinking it’s probably just something small.. and now she’s super pissed at me coz look at what’s inside! :P

DSC04504

Yup. she’s pissed beyond belief. This degustation menu costs 1.7k hehehe. FML! :P I really MUST learn to be patient!

On a side note, dining at Brasserie CiCour can be quite expensive, as is expected at French restaurants. So be prepared to shell out quite a bit when you intend to dine here.
