Walking around Makati, especially in Salcedo, we’re wowed by a lot of good places to eat and drink at, and even more so by the diversity: from restaurants that offer international cuisine, cafes that serve an array of coffee and sandwiches, to drinking places that has a selection of beer and spirits. And for some of us more steady individuals, there’s always La Petite Parisienne.
La Petite Parisienne gets just about everything right: bottles upon bottles of fascinating wines: inexpensive and quality ones, delightful pica plates and meals, and a warm, cozy atmosphere.A spot along Leviste, just at the ground floor of LPL Center, this small quaint space-turned-cellar is the perfect location for having a glass (or bottles) of wine with friends over cheese and cold cuts. It’s great for intimate catch ups but also ideal for grabbing lunch and a glass of your preferred vino. Think of La Petite Parisienne this way: a laidback Instagram-friendly restaurant with a large wine list.
The menu is complete with soup, appetizers, salads, sandwiches, your favorite pizza and pasta and other offerings. They also have a good list of cheeses, cold cuts, and sausages to match. The space is small, the seats are comfortable, and almost every corner is inviting. The food we had is delightful and hearty: Spanish pizza that’s loaded with a medley of toppings, Fettuccine in white sauce, a platter of meat.
There are three things that we loved about La Petit Parisienne.
First, the interiors. Anywhere you sit is easily a good spot to take beautiful photos.
Second, the food. There’s a good amount of options but the best part is the pricing and serving sizes are decent.
And of course, last is the extensive wine list: Red, White, Rose, and Dessert ones priced starting at Php490, and Champagne nothing more than Php2500.
For those who started or having a love affair with wine, this is our heaven.
