After all the wonderful Chinese food, we decided one afternoon to take a change of pace and visit the Agnès b. le pain grillé at the IFC mall.
Gary had recommended this and when we arrived, we faced some confusion. It turns out there is both a café as well as a restaurant and in our confusion we wound up in the restaurant. The slightly more expensive than the café restaurant.
Nonetheless, it was lunch, the food and atmosphere were wonderful, so it worked out as a nice treat. Note to anyone who goes to Hong Kong and decides to stop by Agnès b. le pain grillé: the café is the one outside the doors.
Lovely interior reminds me a bit of our home, except with a nicer bar. I like to wood flooring.
Attempting to not feel out of place after we looked at the prices! Nah, I’m kidding, it wasn’t that bad. The three-course fixed price menu was HK$288, about US$38. Pricier than my normal lunch but not the most expensive lunch I’ve ever had.
Elegant place settings.
Iced lemon tea.
Truly amazing bread. Oh, I wish Bangkok had good bread. I wish I had an oven that could produce bread like this.
Penne pasta with a seven-hour slow-cooked lamb. It was really tasty.
Tawn had a seared tuna salad. It was really tasty, too. So all in all, while it was a little pricey it was a really enjoyable, elegant lunch.
Cute little “garden” outside the restaurant. I really like the tile.
