Au Petite Café

Date Visited: September 13 2014
Address: 4851 Main St Vancouver, BC
Type of Restaurant: Vietnamese, Noodle Shop, Sandwiches/ subs
Price Range: $
Ambiance (out of five)/Setting/Design/service: 4/5 – Service was friendly, the ambiance was relaxed and family oriented. This is an old restaurant so the décor is on the out dated side but it’s all about the atmosphere here.
Recommended: Sandwiches
Overall: 8/10
(1-4: will never come back, 5: pass (I’m okay with a tinier morsel), 6: acceptable, 7: okay, 8: good, 9: Wow! Please enlarge my morsel. 10: Perfection. I could eat a morsel of this every day!)
Will come back? Yes
What I ate:
French Bread sub with Homemade ham, liver pate, vegetable
  • 8.5/10
  • It’s all about the bread with the sandwiches at Au petite café
    • It’s crunchy on the outside and light yet chewy on the inside
  • The problem with the sandwich is the amount of filling and the quality of the filling
  • For the price of this sandwich I would hope that they would put more liver pate and ham in the sub so as to balance the amount of vegetables in the sandwich and the ratio to the bread
Curry Beef Stew served with steamed rice
  • 7/10
  • The beef was a bit tough and the curry flavour had not fully penetrated the beef
  • The curry itself lacked curry flavour and was on the watery side (I prefer thicker curries)
  • The carrots were the highlight of the dish
  • It had curry flavour yet still managed to maintain the sweetness of the carrots
Raw sliced beef, cooked sliced beef and rice noddle in soup (small)
  • 7/10
  • The soup was on the sweeter side than most pho’s
  • I could really taste the star anise and the five spice but it lacked the lusciousness and depth of flavour
Things to Improve on:
  • The bread to filling ratio
  • Enhancing the flavour of the curry
Summary: Come for the French Bread subs
