Down a relatively quite street one line behind the bustling Naplavká is Le Petit Bouillon. Everything on the menu I could degust in an entire evening. Escargot, lobster bisque and a variety of saucisson and cheeses. I kick started the evening with the bisque topped with raifort and drizzling of cream and croutons — a common accompaniment in French dining.
The place is super caszh, mainly due to its one room premises with only a couple of tables on the pavement. Thus the venue is inviting for passersby wanting some spontaneity on any given evening stroll. I for one was as much drawn to the food as the location during such a saunter.
The wine, an expensive at 120 a glass, was definitely palatable. We selected the Muscadet from the Loire region of France which rewarded us with fruity, zesty flavours. Perhaps it wasn't the perfect match for our dishes but all in all it worked.
Having whiled away the best part of an hour and a half, felt staying longer was unnecessary. This is definitely a place to stop, sample, rest a while, and move on over sinking into the surroundings which are more classic French than cosy.
