We took a day off on Friday and decided to go for a nice lunch and movie at Southbank. After reading many positive reviews about Piaf, we decided to give it a try.
The setting is quant, nicely set tables and comfortable chairs with a back drop of jazz music to soothe the soul.
The Menu is simplicity itself as there are only half-a-dozen choices for each course. The price is quite reasonable too.
For entrees, we ordered Tiger Prawns with Confit Leeks and Pernod Beurre Blanc ($14) and Smoked Ocean Trout with Apple Radish Remoulade and Crisp Rye Bread ($14).
The prawns were well cooked and the beure blanc brought a light buttery taste to the dish without being overpowering.
The smoked ocean trout was a little strong by itself but mixed with the other elements on the plate was quite pleasant.
For mains, I had the Atlantic Salmon with Fennel and Sauce Vierge ($24) and D had the Pork Loin with Gremolata, Fondant Potato and Mustard Sauce ($24).
The salmon had a flavoursome, crispy skin and was served with a zesty tomato that didn’t quite match with the salmon but shone by itself.
The pork loin was wonderfully caramelised with a delicious sauce that complemented the dish well.
We couldn’t quite fit dessert in but promised each other to come hungry on our next visit to Piaf!
