Cuillère : Serendra

Cuillère is a spoon in French lingo and is a brasserie in Serendra. From wiki a brasserie is a café doubling as a restaurant with a relaxed setting, which serves single dishes and other meals.

Cuillère is a small eating place with a bistro like ambiance- has a colorful interiors, dim lighting - which I think is a nice place for dating or small gathering or simply if you want time alone. They offer extensive and well written menu.

Complimentary bread served together with herbed butter was given to set our moods while waiting for our food. Bread is freshly baked and well complimented with the butter filling.

For our appetizer: Moules Frites.P195.00
Mussels steamed in white wine sauce is simply yummy - not fishy.

To warm me up I ordered for Soupe a l'Oigno P225.00.
Kudos for their French onion soup, Gruyère cheese gratin is very chewy and the herbs in these soup are so flavorful.I ordered for Epaule d'Agneau (grilled lamb on top of ratatouille). P595.
Whoa! The grilled lamb was huge, tender and juicy; Ratatouille is a french stewed veggies which key ingredients is tomato, see it is not just a movie ;) Gambas thermidor in risotto.P495
The serving was disappointing - Just one prawn divided in to 2 that was it; but it looks good beside risotto is a bit filling right?
Filet de Bœuf, Sauce Fromage Bleu.P545
(Tenderloin Steak with Blue Cheese Sauce)
Compared to my lamb steak, this is way too small. But Aubrey seems to enjoy every chew of it. It is served with spinach and artichokes

Fish with Potato Swirls.P445
Geesshh we were so full but still tried their dessert...

Carabao's Milk Creme Brulee.P95- was so creamilicious.

also, Gaufres Banana. P195.
Banana nutella waffle topped with arce dairy ice cream.
Honestly, I've got no room for this already, I only ate one sliced of banana and it was indeed a banana...haha! Lookie, Aubrey seemed to be enjoying the dessert;or was it because of Tere..Sweet!

To summarize, a spoonful treat of comfort food can be found in Cuillère; a little expensive though ;-)

Hi! I'm from Switzerland. The pictures are great! The food looks so yummy...just one thing though...for a french restaurant, all menus should be in french. Soupe a l'Oigno is not really french...potage aux oignons or soupe aux ognions is the correct french translation of onion soup.

anyway...great blogs you have here! i enjoy reading your reviews. God bless

@Anonymous- Thanks for the comment and visiting my blog...

I really don't know french but I think they need to have exact translation ;D
