La Grande Bouffe, Rozelle

EDIT: La Grande Bouffe has closed

We treated ourselves to an indulgent breakfast at La Grande Bouffe, bright and early on a Sunday morning.

With owner David Poirier (ex-Salt) and accomplished Irish chef Colin Fassnidge at the helm, La Grande Bouffe is often mentioned in the SMH's Good Living section, most recently with regards to its use of Bangalow pork.

The emphasis here is French country fare. We were enamoured with our delightfully polite French waiter (such attention to detail, one kept musing) and were pleased with the efficient, courteous and pre-emptive service.

Our meals were all well-executed although with hungry appetites, the corn fritters and rice pudding servings barely scraped the sides of our ravenous bellies. However the food presented was virtually faultless and best of all, the coffee (which is roasted on the premises) was tres bon!

Stomaches lined, we then set off for our self-planned foodie tour of Darling Street.

Omelette with chevre (goats cheese) and rocket $13.50

Zucchini and sweet corn fritters, steamed asparagus with dijon $12.00

Citrus and coconut rice pudding $7.50
