Classic French goodness
Casse Croute is a little French brasserie on Bermondsey Street, it has gained a reputation of serving some very classical French cooking at a very affordable price. It really depends on how you view the matter, the reception answers your phone call in French, so is the menu. So you either think Paris (the stuffy part) has come to London or it has added a little authentication to the place.
I was in love with the decor as soon as I stepped inside, classic brasserie setting with vintage posters. I went for the smoked duck salad and it was simplicity at its best. The duck was finely sliced and the dressing of the salad was just perfect with a lovely nutty texture from the pine nut. My main of pork with lentils was also very pleasant. The pork was moist and the seasoning of the sweet and sour lentils went extremely well with the peppercorn to round off a well balanced dish.

I really enjoyed my dinner at Casse Croute, the cooking was nothing fancy but really delivered when it came to classical French flavours. Service was also impressive, even though we were over 40 minutes late, we weren't rushed at all as all on a busy Thursday night, I was charged less than £30 per person with a glass of wine which represents amazing value. Casse Croute is well worth a visit if you want a taste of France without willing to travel, what a special place.
