Hidden inside the Century City Mall in Makati is one of the prettiest restaurants we have in the city. Le Petit Souffle offers a fusion of the best in French and Japanese cuisines. Not the most common combination we have available, but definitely one that Le Petit Souffle achieves with flying colors.
But before we get to the food, let it be said that the ambiance alone when you step inside the restaurant is already quite a surprise. Located at the third floor of a typical mall, Le Petit Souffle easily transports you to a different place altogether, with hanging plants and its subtle lighting. It gives off an al fresco vibe, fresh and refreshing. This is the perfect place for a quiet date or a relaxed catch-up session between friends. Being so near the CBD of Makati, it can also be a perfect spot for an after-office dinner engagements. The place is Instagram-worthy, and I’m pretty sure you’ll be snapping shots as soon as you settle in.
And now, the food. Le Petit Souffle’s dishes are rich, without overwhelming, and they’re quite fancy but comforting. A Honey Citrus Salad starter is the perfect build up for the sumptuous dishes you’ll have, and for that day, it was carbonara for me. I often get carbonara when I am not sure what to order. I have tried many variations of the dish all over the city, and I can say that Le Petit Souffle’s version is up on my list. With the pasta cooked al dente, a raw egg over to cook to your liking, and generous amounts of crispy bacon and parmesan – just thinking about it now makes me want to go there and order it again. To cap off a lovely meal, I had a serving of matcha soft-serve ice cream, and it was just lovely.
Le Petit Souffle offers a lot of other mouth-watering dishes, like their Foie Gras dishes, and I am sure to go back there to try them. That – and enjoy the overall feel the restaurant evokes over a cup of coffee and their soufflé offerings.
