Who would have thought that French cuisine can adapt the style of sharing through tapas sizes.


The restaurant is run by three brothers: Maxime, Yannis and Malik.

The partnership of this restaurant with Salt Yard Group has really shine through. The food comes in small portions and categorised into nibbles, charcuterie, fish, meat and vegetables.

To start I order bread and butter (£2.50)

This was amazing. Bread is soft, slightly chewy and have a nice crunchy crust. The butter is creamy rich and well salted. Must order.

For the vegetables I got green bean salad with foie gras, shallots and walnut dressing (£6.75). The beans were crunchy and fresh, the dressing was zingy and refreshing but the foie gras somehow was lost. Still it was a good start to the meal.

The meat section was also super tempting but today I guess I want something abit more light like warm confit of salmon with duck, puy lentils and herbs (£6.50). The salmon was nice and tender and screams of salmon flavour. The lentils was earthy yet retains a bite in texture and the addition of pulled duck adds a savoury hint to the dish. Went down rather well.

Blanchette is a really good place to grab quick and well organised french cuisine in a relaxing atmosphere. A great addition to the already diverse dining scene of Soho.

Price: ££ (£17 per head, dishes varies from £3 to £8 per dish)
