Some of you may know La Gourmet House from when it was in Ikano Power Center at the LG floor, it moved over to The Curve and now it’s in the prime position on the street on the ground floor. They have also updated their menu along with the move and are bringing some new items.

It’s a Mediterranean style restaurant serving a variety of western influence food.

It’s pretty easy to find, the interior is nice and cosy – quite authentically European.

We started off with the Sicilian seafood bisque with stuffed fish, which was very nice! Not too rich, nice and smooth and a very well balanced taste (sometimes bisque can be too creamy, or too watery).

We also tried out the Andalucian style tiny meatballs in almond sauce with salmon pikelettes along with a stuffed aubergine with rockets, cherry tomatoes and walnuts topped with berries and lemon dressing.

The Salmon Pikelette was good, the meatball was cold though and I don’t really fancy aubergine cooked that way as it tends to be a bit soggy/oily.

If you are there on Friday or Saturday you’ll be sung to by Gani from Freedom whilst you wait for your main to arrive.

After that came the specialty Paella Luzonia with mixed seafood, vegetables and salted fish. The texture was good and there was plenty of seafood (clams, crabs, prawns etc). It wasn’t quite hot enough however.

Along with the Paella came the Shepherd’s Buglidicce, I had no idea what it was to be honest…but it turns out to be some kind of toasted cheese biscuit/pancake and it was very nice.

If you’re lucky the chef might come out and sing you a song!

They have some nice German beer too (Weihenstephan), we finished off with a brownie, which was ok and a coffee which was good.

The price is pretty average, it’s not cheap but it’s not expensive. We’d give it a worth trying We Ate This 5/10 – it’d make 6 if the portions were a little larger and their hot food was hot.

The first rule of any restaurant kitchen is make sure what is supposed to be hot is really hot and what is supposed to be cold is really cold. The rest is less important.

I do want to go back and try their dried duck pasta which is supposed to be quite famous.

  2. The lamb stew is pretty good too. The bad thing is, I suspect they freeze & reheat some of their dishes. At one time, one of their stews was unevenly cold/warm.. signs of being reheated.

  4. their pizza is one of the finest, fresh, soft and cheezy. coffee with cake during tea break is marvelous.

  7. Awww….too bad for such nice food…not hot enough!
    I am particular about the heat of the food served too – unless it’s a cold dish lar! Otherwise, it feels like leftover food…
