Cafe de Voyageurs – North African Spring

March 15, 2012 @ 6:00 pm

To book for the 15th or 16th call 07712 527113 or tweet @40alfredplace

The lucky first customers of the Cafe des Voyageurs savoured Cuban treats including perfectly made classic daiquiris, succulent ropa vieja, and  rare Pinilla and Santa Cruz rums unobtainable outside the Cuban provinces. The Cafe’s soundtrack included the best of the past and the absolute latest, typified by the New Year underground hit track Suave, donated personally by the young artist who recorded it in Santiago a month earlier, Icaro MC.

The next Cafe des V extends over two nights and takes North Africa as its theme. We’re very delighted and honoured to have Pat Floyd – son of you-know-who – in the kitchen, helped (or is it hindered?) by Hyacinthe.

Menu as follows:

Starters/tapas include briks with different fillings, Moroccan carrot salad, merguez in a quarter baguette, and more, all at £3.50 or £10 for 3. Perroquets and tomates cocktails from the bar, or Gerrouanne rouge from Meknes by the bottle or glass.

Mains: old style Franco-Algerian cous cous with copious veg and three meats, or vegetarian, at £10.

Dessert: patisseries orientales maison, including chocolate merguez (patent pending).

Jukebox almost filled with French chanson, Cuban classics from first Cafe des V, and top of the pops of Algeria, Tunisia and Morocco.

Still a few tables left. Also do drop in for drinks/snacks at bar but better check first as space limited.
