We were looking for a light lunch, just somwhere close- like Chatswood but got bored at the thought of the usual places like New Shanghai or Ozeki. As much as I love those places, sometimes, you just feel like new things, right? So we decided to try out the new brasserie- Carré Noir at the new Concourse for lunch. When it first opened, I had a quick peek at their menu and was surprised that a cafe would serve both European and Japanese cuisine- not a fusion but it was like literally having two separate menus for the two cuisines. But now, it appears they've changed that and focus solely on the European counterpart and I think that's a good thing as it matches better with their ambience. What I loved most about it was probably the ever so relaxed outdoor atmosphere. The food was overall good too, with nice presentation and reasonable, if not satisfying portions. And the chips.... oh boy, they were to die for. Crunchiest chips ever- hands down. I could eat them all day- no soggy bits!
So here are some of the things we ordered:
