La Farine

Business Traveller (India) - - TASTE -

The se­lec­tion of eggs at this restau­rant at JW Mar­riott Mar­quis is heart­warm­ing. There are at least four dif­fer­ent va­ri­eties, in ad­di­tion to the reg­u­lar omelette and scram­bled ver­sions. Start with a bread bas­ket that is served fresh out of the oven. In fact, for a full spread that in­cludes most of what’s on the menu, visit on a Fri­day or Satur­day for the Baker’s Break­fast. It is a three-course value meal that al­lows you to sam­ple a large part of La Farine’s of­fer­ings.You start with freshly baked crois­sants, Danish bread and jams, in ad­di­tion to a char­cu­terie plat­ter: cold cuts, cheese and olives. For the next course, you can choose eggs, a crepe or a croque. I opted for the eggs Bene­dict that came with turkey ham. The creami­ness was just right, and the taste of turkey wasn’t over­pow­ered by the hol­landaise sauce. For the sides I or­dered the ly­on­naise pota­toes — with crispy and soft bits. The last bite was chased down with a gen­er­ous serv­ing of a double shot cap­puc­cino. Even my hot cuppa was full of flavour, smoked and strong, just as I like it. It was in­deed a sump­tu­ous break­fast, one that didn’t have me re­gret miss­ing the fruit plat­ter, also part of the spe­cial menu.

Open daily, break­fast tim­ings are 8am-1pm; Baker’s Break­fast per cou­ple is priced at AED 210/ `3,674;
