RAC Bar, brought to us by the same team behind RAC Coffee, opened a few weeks ago in a courtyard on Anfu Road and immediately became one of the hottest spots in Shanghai.

RAC Bar開在安福路上的一個庭院裏,和巷口的RAC Coffee由同一個團隊打造。雖然不是街邊的位置,但這家開幕才兩周的小餐廳已經成爲附近食客們的最愛。

It’s a simple space of cement grey and warm wood, punctuated with a beautiful dark green. Large windows, lots of natural light.

先看一下餐廳設計。RAC Bar簡潔的空間由水泥灰和木頭色爲主,其中穿插著漂亮的深綠色,大片的玻璃窗讓店內通透感十足。

A nice cup of latte (35 RMB) first, straight from RAC coffee.

在窗邊的位子坐下來,點一杯拿鐵 (35 RMB)。咖啡由RAC Coffee窗口送過來,味道很好。

Breizh Café

Add: 109 rue Vieille du Temple 75003 Paris
Tel: +33 (0)1 42 72 13 77
Hours: (closed on Mon & Tue)
Website: www.breizhcafe.com
Price: €4.50~11.80/galette, €3.80~6.80/crêpe
Visited on: 2010-08

Lodged on one of the street corners in La Marais is Breizh Café, a small restaurant specializing in galettes de blé noir, also known as buckwheat crêpes. The ingredients used here are all top-notch and very French – Bordier butter, the finest black flour, homemade jams, artisinal hams, bacon, freerange eggs and cheese. Wash it down with a jug of exceptional cider, and you’ve got the perfect lunch.

Open kitchen.

Seasonal menu on the blackboard.

For the savory, I chose Terre-Neuve (€11.80), a seafood galette with cod brandade, andouille chitterling sausage, green salad and herb butter. Brandade is a fluffy emulsion of salt cod and olive oil commonly eaten with bread, but also goes well with buckwheat crêpe. And what are chitterlings? Pork intestines, my friends, so don’t order this if animal innards is not your things.

[Shanghai] La Crêperie

with 9 comments

La Crêperie

Add: 1 Taojiang Lu, near Fenyang Lu 桃江路1, 近汾阳路
Tel: 5465 9055
Hours: 11am onward
Price: 60~105 RMB/savory crêpe, 35~60 RMB/dessert crêpe
Website: www.lacreperie.com.cn
Visited: May 2011

La Crêperie is a busy little crepe shop in the French Concession. Equipped with wooden benches, waiters/waitresses in stripey uniforms, and an open kitchen that fills the space with tantalizing aroma of freshly made crepes, this place is one of the most popular brunch spots in Shanghai. Reservations highly recommended.

Though I’ve visited La Creperie quite a few times before, I haven’t had a chance to try any of their seafood crepes until this time. La Marin (108 RMB), a recommended item on the menu, is a freshly-made buckwheat crepe topped with seared scallops, garlic, parsley, cream, mixed mushrooms, sliced bacon, and white wine. It’s a bit too salty, but otherwise absolutely scrumptious. Will order again for sure.
