Food, Musings

Review: Cafe Rouge


There used to be this French cafe in Haji Lane called Le Parisien Bistro. Then it disappeared. I realised they relocated to Bussorah Street. And then yesterday it was Cafe Rouge in place of the Bistro opposite Kampung Glam Cafe. Where Le Parisien Bistro went, I have no idea.

But anyways, Hani and I decided to eat at Cafe Rouge since Koh Nong Kham was closed because the cooks went back to Krabi for a holiday. No cooks means kitchen closed. SO CAFE ROUGE (I keep digressing), is a small alfresco restaurant by the road, pretty tablecloths (they were just picnic tablecloths but they look to cute) and two servers. I didn’t manage to talk to the owners or the manager because it was pretty busy for a small cafe, and with just two servers, they needed to make sure food was served.

We both ordered the set lunch since we were famished. $15.90 for a lemon soda, salad, onion soup, grilled steak with potatoes and a dessert of creme brulee – a very good deal to me.


A mix salad with feta cheese. The dressing was nice but the portion was way too small. I love my greens, dammit!



French Onion Soup. Not my favorite part of the meal.

Grilled Sirloin Steak with Potato Gratin. Loved the sauce, although the meat was too fatty and it was a bit thin. But hey, $15.90 for all of these?


My favorite part of any meal – dessert. The creme brulee was simply orgasmic.

I would recommend coming here if you’re looking for a really good deal. For a halal restaurant, the place serves good food, is family friendly, and the toilet is super clean AND it has a bidet.
