Le Clec (Revisited-Invited)

Le Clec is a cute cafe in Hawthorn, located in the famous Glenferrie Road. Walking distance from Swinburne university, making it perfect for student to take a break and have a nice lunch. They have a charming courtyard at the back, that I love so much. A lil sanctuary.

I found the menu at Le Clec to be unique and not the regular typical cafe food. Their menu is highly influenced by Asian culture, right on trend. Coconut Palm Sugar Beef Rib - charred corn salad, nahm jim dressing ($19) add side fries ($3). Melt in your mouth, fall of the bone beef rib with deep rich sauce, very well marinated. I can eat this meal on daily basis with smoky charred corn on the side.

Next is the Crispy Salmon - broccolini, dutch carrot, king oyster mushroom, lemongrass, chilli broth, tapioca crisp ($22). This is my favourite of the day, fresh salmon cooked to perfection with slight pinkness on the inside. The ingredients combinations are simple, straight forward, finished with fresh chilli broth, close to light tom yum broth.

Mango Pannacotta - toasted rolled oats, goji berries, currant, walnut, pistachio, cashew nut, dry coconut, seasonal fruits, raspberry gel ($15). Sadly, the pannacotta is slightly dense. I would prefer lighter texture and the other ingredients on the plate also making it on the heavier side. Good that the customers will be full but for me, I prefer pannacotta dish to refreshing and light.
