Casse Croute, Meguro キャス・クルート 目黒

Casse Croute, located in a side street off Meguro Dori in Meguro, is one of my favourite restaurants in Tokyo. I have been here repeatedly over the years and always have a good experience. The dining room is decorated in a bright, mood-lifting Provençal style and serves excellent country-style French cooking . For a Sunday lunch it is just perfect, so please let me describe a recent Sunday lunch I enjoyed there.

For just 2,000 yen you can order a menu which includes an entree, soup, main and dessert. On my most recent visit I ordered the charcuterie for the entree and was served a very substantial piece of terrine as well as a liver pâté. Both these were bursting with flavour and went beautifully with the bread that never stops coming. The soup was a cold corn soup which hardly touched the sides. This was followed by a tasty blanc de volaille - slices of cold chicken served with a tuna mayonnaise. I also thought the main of fish ordered by one of my party looked great so I had a taste and the fish was meaty and served with a delicious sauce with hints of shellfish. Dessert was a delicious blanc manger with prune. The drink of your choice is also included.

I can't think of anywhere else in Tokyo where you can have such a tasty, filling Sunday lunch at such a reasonable price.

キャス・クルート (目黒)

目黒通りから少し奥に入ったところに私のお気に入りのひとつであるレストラン、キャス・クルートがある。これまで何度もこのレストランに足を運んできて一度も満足しなかったことはない。レストランの中は明るく、南仏プロバンスを思い起こさせてくれるデコレーションに囲まれ、美味しいフランスの田舎料理をいただくことが出来る。日曜日のランチが特におすすめで、今日はある日曜日にいただいた食事のことをお話したい。

2000円のランチメニューには、前菜にスープ、メインからデザートまで付いてくる。前菜にシャルキトリーを選んだ私の前には、ボリュームがたっぷりのテリーヌとレバのパテがだされた。風味も最高で休む暇もなく出てくるパンとよく合い食欲をそそられる。前菜のあとに用意された冷コーンスープを美味しくいただいた後、メインへとすすむ。ツナとマヨネーズをベースにスライスされた鶏(ブラン・ド・ヴォライユ)。食事仲間が選んだメインの魚料理をつまみ食いし満足感に浸ったあと、干したプラムのブランモンジェがデザートとして用意されていた。

飲み物もこれについており、これほど金額に見合う価値のある美味しいランチを週末にできるレストランはほかにはない。これが私の正直な意見である。

Casse Croute has always served a consistent quality of food and service. The portions are generous and bread comes without asking for it. I love their choice of desserts too.

Slightly above the average french-cuisine-made-for-japanese kind of restaurant, very popular with japanese obaasans. Portions are rather small, food tastes ok if not really authentic.
But at 2000Y for a lunch on Sundays, I wouldn't call it cheap.
