Restaurant La Cuisine Au Beurre Beside TukCom

Recommended Posts

La Cuisine Au Beurre is a French restaurant on the west side of TukCom, on the same street as  La Pettite Planete.  LCAB is larger and its interior design is a bit fancier, but both restaurants serve traditional French cuisine and feature three-course fixed menus.

A friend and I choose the fixed menu at 360 baht including coffee or tea.   He took the mixed salad as his starter ...

while I had what the menu called "pastry with mushroom."

He had no complaints about his salad, but the pastry I got was badly overcooked, even burned on the bottom.  I should have sent it back, but in my experience, that's not a good idea if there is no farang manager or owner on site. The mushroom sauce was good, although canned mushrooms had been used.

He picked the pork stew with fried potatoes and boiled vegetables as his main course. He liked the stew a lot; he said he wouldn't hesitate to order it again.

I went with the shrimp Provencal as my main dish. I was surprised it came with the same boiled vegetables and choice of potato (French fries or pan-fried) as my friend had with the pork stew.  I asked if I could substitute rice for potato, but that wasn't possible. I just skipped the potato and ate the shrimp Provencal with a couple of slices of bread from the complimentary basket.

I wasn't overly enthusiastic about the sauce used on the shrimp.  It was too heavily tomato and not acid or garlicky enough to be Provencal. The shrimp were good, though.

My friend had the creme caramel for dessert and thought it delicious.

I had the peach Melba which was OK but not great.  Peach Melba should be served with raspberry sauce, not a drizzle of commercial chocolate sauce.

My friend and I had very different opinions about our meal at LCAB.  He thought all three of his courses were excellent, while I considered my starter to be a flop and the other two courses mediocre. I should add that both of us regarded the service as fast and friendly.  I thought it a bit odd I couldn't switch out potato for rice with a dish like shrimp Provencal, but a lot of restaurants have strict policies about substitutions on fixed menus.

Bottom line:  I won't be rushing back, but I will give La Cuisine Au Beurre another chance.
