La Petite Soupe, New York

Wednesday, October 4th, 2006


La Petite Soupe is a charming and unassuming family run French bistro. They serve omelettes, croque monsieurs, but the main drawcard is the great value menu prix fixe.  For just US$22.95 (dinner), I had a French onion soup, an amazing rosemary and garlic infused tender pork (which reminded me of Christmas!) that came with a cress salad and the crunchiest French fried potatoes which would put the golden arches to shame! To finish, creme caramel, or chocolate mousse. The creme caramel had the right firmness in texture and bathed in sticky syrup, rounding off a great meal.  With the unlimited crusty bread, and well priced cocktails, it really is a haven for the traveller looking for an unpretentious, friendly and authentic meal.  The bonus – it’s only four streets away from broadway and Times Square – just the right distance to get your disgestion started!
