Swinging alluringly bet­w­een fin de sie­cle and fashion-forward Paris, Les Parisiennes lies, in contrast, amidst the warren of lanes in Shahpur Jat. Housed in an exquisite hav­eli, the shop’s furniture and food is in tune with its aesthetic synthesis, beckoning all to a different realm.

The enticing delicacies the cafe offers includes the wee­k­end-dinner menu of Zucchini Ricotta quiche and Cro­que Monsieur (Bite Mister), accompanied by refre­shing glasses of French apple and plum juice, and augmented by delicious home-baked hot chocolate fondant and lemon madeleine.

The quiche was tailored as an appetiser and the salad that accompanied it was fresh and juicy, with a variety of lettuce and rocket leaves tossed in a little vinaigrette and salad dressing. The quiche was pleasingly delicate, yet explosive with its creamy texture and decoration of oregano. On the downside, the base of the pastry was a bit overcooked.

The Croque Monsieur was the dish of the day—layered with melted cheese on top of toasted bread with pieces of pork ham in the centre, it had a quintessential seasoning of herbs. However, the Spaghetti Pesto sauce proved disappointing. The final act was scripted by the hot chocolate fondant and lemon mad­eleine, though the latter was marginally overpowered by the former. Apart from being home-baked, these err­ant desserts made my day; the hot chocolate fondant was delightfully sinful!

Les Parisiennes is a pleasant introduction to French cuisine. The moreish goodies are competitively priced too!
