My take on the French cuisine at Suzette


Suzette, the first thing that comes to my mind when i hear the name is
Crepe Suzette, the classic french dish made with a nice crepe with reduced orange sauce and orange segments.
It is one of the most famous crepe dishes all around the world if i would to say...

Talking about the restaurant/joint Suzette, the place is located in one of the best and high fi areas of bandra, pali hill.
This place is a very small joint, i guess hardly it can accommodate about about 30 peoples..
Its quite congested and the tables are all squeezed up to get maximum people fitted in the area...
To start with, for me this was one negative point i get there...

The place serving french food, is quite famous among the people from foreign countries as they prefer crepes, and the stuff served there for the meals...also it is quite famous among indians as well, as many like the same food as well.
                                              


I visited the place for a breakfast cum brunch if i would to say...
the moment i reached here...all the tables were full and i had to wait for sometime which was a bit irritating, coz when im hungry, i hate waiting...

As soon as we were seated, we went through the menu and it was a bit confusing on what to order and what not to order as all of the dishes seems quite interesting with the wonderful description given there..
After thinking a lot we ordered a small bowl of the pesto pasta salad with sundried tomatoes, cherry tomatoes..
a citrus juice, banana and yogurt smoozie...in veg v ordered the foret suzette, non veg was the estragon as suggested by the server..
first comes the salad and the smoozie...
the salad..quite nice..pasta was cooked perfectly...the pesto sauce was quite good...not the best but nice...
the smoozie some how let me down...it was warm..not cold...and very thin...and seemed like it was kept and not fresh...


it is said that people eat with their eyes first...it was time to welcome the crepes...the veg foret and the non veg estragon...
looking at the plate...i personally dint feel like eating...there was no garnish..just a plain white plate with the crepe on it...which according to me is not a good sign of a nice restaurant...the plate looked like lifeless...
taste wise the crepes were pretty decent..not the best if i say...honestly i have had better...
the non veg estragon...has a good amount of cheese in the center, but on the edges of the crepes it was empty...and the same goes for the veg...

Both the crepes looked the same on the plate...only the stuffing was different...if u dint know which is which...without digging in...it mite create problems if there is a veg and a non veg person on the same table...


never the less...after some savory crepes...it was time for some sweet crepes...
and we knew what to order..it was nutella and banana...my all time favorite..and the apple compote with walnuts..
along with some whipped cream and vanilla ice cream...

Again..there was no garnish on the plate... but one thing was there...that is the stuffing...the edges has nutella and banana and other one had a generous amount of apples and walnuts...this was one thing that i liked after the salad in the whole meal...
but still..the food was not eye appealing...which i think they need to work on...
                                  


To be honest...i wouldnt pay 350rs for a crepe which doesnt have ample stuffing and was lifeless...
the sweet crepes i would recommend...but not the savory ones..
the place is averagely priced..not very expensive..

Overall...the food is not that great and lifeless...the place is quite congested...there is waiting and the ambiance was nothing great to talk about..

will i go to the place again?? i would think twice or thrice before going..


My take on Suzette - Bandra.
