I hold very fond memories of Cafe Rouge. The first time I visited the restaurant was when I started my job with LOCOG in 2012. It was a team lunch for us to get to know each other. Since then, I have become a regular thanks to Tesco Clubcard! The Cafe Rouge Children’s Menu has had a revamp and I was invited along with other yummy mummies for a trial. You all know my love for food so of course I said yes!
CeCe is exactly like me. A complete and utter foodie. She was so eager to eat that day it was funny. She ordered the Poulet Ohh La La along with a glass of lemonade. For Amelia, I ordered the Poulet Goujon which came with chips -and a glass of pineapple juice.
Before their mains arrived, the kids were giv, en their starters which was bread with tomato sauce and some veggies. Like the polar opposites that they are Cece enjoyed the bread whilst Amelia enjoyed the veggies!
I liked the fact that the kids meal came with some sort of vegetable either as part of their starters or the main meal. I find it hard to get my kids to eat a range of vegetables but whenever we visit a restaurant, they manage to.
To celebrate my sister in law’s birthday which was the week before, I asked her to tag along. For starters, we ordered Fougasse A ’L’ail aka tear and share garlic bread with warm garlic butter. Before I continue let me just use a few words to pay homage to this bread. Pizza Express watch out! Your garlic dough balls have some fierce competition!
I am that person that regularly visits the same restaurant, orders the same thing even though I’ve browsed the menu for ages! This time, I wanted to try something different. I’m trying to be unpredictable and spontaneous so I ordered Loup De Mer for my mains.The meal was everything and then some! Each ingredient worked together to create party in my mouth. The seabass fillet was well seasoned inside and out.
The kids menu is really affordable and filling for little tummies. For a mere £6.95, they get starters, mains, dessert and a drink. Our visit was absolutely pleasant and I look forward to the next time I visit. To find out more about the new children’s menu at Cafe Rouge please visit their website.
