Honeymoon: L'Angle Cafe/Restaurant

Back to work on a Monday & the start of the new month, yet again. Been feeling a lil under-the-weather recently but still enduring a visit to the doc for I don't really like to take medication. I used to have a phobia on swallowing pills when I was younger thinking that the pills will be stuck in my throat ~ I will dissolve the pills in the water and drink that instead, haha! What a way to torture myself, as the after-taste will stay in my mouth. As I grew up, I've learn how to swallow pills and suddenly, my life became a lot easier. Even so, I still don't like seeing the doc unless absolutely necessary. I guess I'll just need to rest more & let my body recover by itself :)
We were famished after a long day and walked into the first cafe that appeared within our sights for lunch. L'Angle Cafe/Restaurant is situated along the corner of the apartment.
If you're stuck on Champs Elysees and don't want to get "carrot-headed" with crappy tourist restaurant fare, you can head to this cafe for a simple (inexpensive) meal away from the crowd.
Waiting for food to be served :)
We always start with a glass of wine. This time round, we ordered rose wine from Cotes de Provence AOC (€5.20 for 25cl glass). Cotes de Provence AOC is the largest appellation in Provence, accounting for almost 73% of all wine produced, with 88% of the production being rose.
Cotes de Provence roses are typified by a bright pale pink colour. Fresh, exotics fruits dominate, accompanied by floral and spicy notes. They are best served chilled - the one we had wasn't served chilled. Nevertheless, it was well-balanced and smooth.
Soupe à l'oignon also known as french onion soup (€7). OMG, this was absolutely tasty! They placed a bowl of cheese by the side that we can add in. Instead of drinking it directly from the bowl, I prefer to dip the bread into the soup and eat it.
Our mains consisted of Confit de Canard (duck confit, €11.50) and Poulet Roti (roast chicken, €11.50). Duck confit was extremely delicious - the skin was crispy and slightly salty much to the delight of Leecher's tastebud. Chicken was tender and juicy too. Besides the above, you also get to choose from a range of mains like salmon tartar, cod loin, grilled beef steak, hamburgers etc.
Ended the meal with Creme Brulee Vanille (€6). The serving was bigger than I thought, but good enough for sharing :)
