It's crepes, crepes and more crepes on the menu at L'Ami Malo, the new French eatery in Artillery Passage, East London.
Making the best of a small space L'Ami Malo is friendly and comfortable with just the right amount of background buzz.
You may think that three courses of crepe sounds a bit like too much crepe.. but with the range on the menu we promise you, it works.
Starters include buckwheat crepes (to keep healthy eaters happy) served in a maki roll style with avocado and tomato salsa. Everything is so visual here - the prettiness you can see below is a starter of Buckwheat Goat’s Cheese Croquettes with heritage beetroot and a pansy adorned sour.
Onto the mains and I went for the confit of Duck which sees braised red cabbage wrapped up in the obligatory crepe and crisped up duck leg done to a T to the side. A caramelised pear tops it all off perfectly though it can be made more perfect with a pairing of Cider.
L'Ami Malo has some really special craft ciders on the menu, try the Cidre Bouché Breton, Brut - so crisp and perfect with a dish like the duck!
L'Ami Malo opens from 5.30 daily and can be found at 14 Artillery Passage, London E1 7LJ.
