As we sit in our French hideaway, a little bit of France in Milford on Sea hit our e-mailbox.

Milford on Sea's very own French Bistro, La Perle, have changed their tasty Lunch Prix Fixe menu (If you don't speak French fluently, that is a fixed price menu!), and they have now introduced some more great value creative dishes. Their deal includes a hearty classic French main course with a glass of wine or drink for just £13.50 of your British pounds.
(Did you know, in France a 'Bistro' is a 'Bistrot', the 't' was dropped in good ol'Blighly as the 't' was not considered pretty.)
The menu choices look similar to here in Deauville, however we cannot find the Le Perle lunch price here!
- Duck leg confit, braised red cabbage, sauteed potatoes
- Classic Bouillabaisse, Provencal style fish soup, rouille, croutons
- Bavette steak, rosti potato, pepper & green bean salad
- Fillet of Seabass, ratatouille, saffron turned potatoes
- Chicken Créole, spicy stew with sultanas & mixed vegetables served with pilaf rice
- Moules Marinière & frites, Cornish mussels served marinière style with fries
- Omelette available on request *
On Wednesday & Thursday evenings, Le Perle are also offering a special price on A La Carte at 2 courses at £20.95 or 3 courses for £26.95.
|Lionel Sene | Chef//Patron|
Also being French, mon ami Lionel is very much a kindred spirit, and we often chat relentlessly in our own versions of French, not having a clue what the other one is saying. He loves it when I ask if he has 'frogs legs', and then explains his trousers just make his legs look funny. Another classic is to ask the same question, and then ask if he will hop over the bar to get a drink. He loves British humour, give it a try!
