Found in the centre of Bromley is a splendid slice of French cuisine, known as Papillon.
An enchanting brasserie style restaurant serving sublime French dishes, Papillon is a cosy and quaint eatery that makes for a fantastic location for any occasion, be it a delightful catch up with a friend or a tranquil date night with that special someone.
Diners can treat their loved ones, or just themselves, to all the sumptuous fare at Papillon at a fantastic price when they call in advance with a tastecard. With these savings mind, there’s little reason not indulge in all three delectable courses.
Start with one of the exemplary appetisers, including the rich fragrant mussels, served in an English herb enhanced lobster bisque, the delectable pan fried fois gras, partnered with caramelised apples and brioche toast, and the delightful baked goat’s cheese, complete with figs and lavender honey.
A wealth of vegetable, meat and fish based dishes are presented to diners as a main course, with particularly delicious options like the refreshing oyster mushroom salad, tossed with root vegetables and chestnuts, the tantalising rainbow trout fillet, adorned with asparagus and almond butter, and the succulent Papillon signature steak, cut from rib of beef and accompanied with chunky chips and a creamy peppercorn sauce.
For the grand finale, savour one of the heavenly desserts, such as the divine caramelised pear tart, paired with vanilla ice cream and a toffee sauce, the decadent homemade profiteroles, matched with pistachio nuts and a warm chocolate cream, and zesty lemon and blood orange mousse. Those with more savoury tastes may appreciate the cultural culmination of selected British and French cheeses, which come with a quince jam.
A special spot in Bromley, those looking for a true continental taste of France should consider visiting Papillon.
