Today I bring you one of my favourite markets in Auckland, the La Cigale French Market in Parnell.
I feel its been forever since I wrote one of these, but with winter already here It’s harder to find markets or to find the inner strength to crawl out of bed and go to one.
After weeks and weeks of convincing I finally talked Le Boyfriend into taking me for brunch. I don’t really know why I’m so obsessed with it, I hate breakfast, and any other day I try to avoid eating as soon as I wake up, but every weekend I have a crave for brunch, going out, and have some serious food. I became a fanatic and I’ve been asking him for too long.
He finally gave in and this Sunday we went to L’Assiette, located in the Britomart Area. I’ve been wanting to try this place for a long time, it is on every guide I’ve read ad on every “Must see” food places, including several Metro’s 50s Best Cafes in Auckland Awards. L’Assiette is a small french bistro that focuses on giving a French twist to kiwi classic meals, from Sweet patisserie to savory Galetes.
The 14th of July the French celebrate Bastille Day as their national holiday and Remuera was one of Auckland’s suburbs who team up with their french community to participate in their celebration.
Just a few minutes outside central city (just 2 train stations away from Britomart) Remuera Road was filled with all thing french from lovely pastries and wine tastings, to a headless Marie Antoinette parading around with mimes.
