After my flirtations with Greece and Persia, it seems like I’m turning back to French cuisine. Visiting Casse- Croute makes you feel like you’re dining in a French village. It may not be the cheapest, but it’s not ridiculously overpriced either.
Casse- Croute, simply put, is fab. Situated in the thriving area of Bermondsey, it is small, and authentic. The chalkboard menu (changed daily) only has nine things on it, everything is in French and it feels like you’re being invited into someone’s dining room.
It was a hot summer’s night when we visited and the place was crowded, despite it being a Monday (it was also my 31st birthday).
The starter was a glorious Oeuf with salmon, which was a pleasant surprise.
I could swear I had the duck for my main course but the picture doesn’t look like duck:
And the dessert, a gateaux, was absolutely delicious.
When people say they know a great French place in Bermondsey, this is that place.
