TheFrench Corner

Voulez Vous - 15

October 18, 2006 Update: Formerly Voulez Vous which means "Do you want? ", I just recently went back to Westgate and realized that this place has a new permanent name "The French Corner". Here is my original post on Voulez Vous and I was wondering if only the name changed or is this also something different with the menu and the chef?

Original Post Title: Voulez Vous? Do you Want? (January 17, 2006)

Formerly C'est si Bon (which was registered already to a pastry store) , Voulez Vous offers Mediterranean cuisine -- I crave for this type of food :) This is manned by Billy King's proteges Larry Cruz and Chef Mauro Arjona. Billy King's claim to fame is having worked as the executive chef of Le Souffle which is one of Manila's Best Fine Dining restaurants. This is located in Westgate Filinvest, Alabang and if you look at the building structure, you won't be immediately attracted with its weird shape building facade.

The bar (located at the center) looks serene with its minimalist filipino look with a touch of mediterranean art. It looks elegant -- not too imposing, but just perfect for that evening dinner date.

I had to take this picture because I want to let my readers know that If you are planning to reserve in this place, reserve this side of the restaurant (beside the road entering westgate) which have a nice window living room setting. This would be perfect for that Sunday brunch setting. There is a corner dining area (top left most side of the photo), with the arc entrance which should be perfect for dining with a small group and get the privacy that you need.

Voulez Vous - 3

Fettuccine with Scallops and Prawns in Oriental Sauce (P395) - deliciouso! Although be careful not to eat too much of the parmesan or else your lips would be itchy because of its high salt content.

Voulez Vous - 2

Fresh organic Pasta al Fungi (P295) -- not the usual pasta you can find in an italian resto. If you are looking for that different mushroom taste, then you should try this.

Voulez Vous - 1

Seared Sole Fillet with tomato - onion - potato compote (P395) - boasting to be one of the killer food and it gives the fish a slightly fruity twist.

Voulez Vous - 10

Coffee Crunch Souffle (P150) -- deliciously sinful.
