Au Revoir La Petite Camille!!!

Trivia of the Week: La Petite Camille is a sister restaurant of established names Super Bowl of China, Chili's and McDonald's.

How did this happen?  Mama Flor joined forces with Richmond Yang (Super Bowl of China, Chili's) to put up La Petite Camille.  Richmond Yang is the son of George Yang, the man behind fast food giant McDonald's.

I joined other bloggers in tasting the creations from the brain child of Mama Fong.  She started La Petite Camille in California 21 years ago  in the United States and decided to bring it here in the Philippines last month.  The marketing manager told me they are already attracting a lot of customers despite not having a marketing strategy as of now.

It is no secret she tickled the taste buds of Filipinos because the place is always packed even during office hours. 

La Petite Camille is French for "Little Girl Camille".  The Vietnamese Restaurant used French because Vietnam was under the French people before they eventually became independent.

All the members of the kitchen staff were personally trained by Mama Fong so you can be sure you will still get Mama Fong's unique quality creations.

For now, there is no private function room to accommodate special functions so they are on a first come, first serve basis.  You must come there early if you want to celebrate an occasion there since the restaurant can only seat 74 people.

                                                          Beef Look Luck (350)

                                                         Beef Stew Noodle Soup (245)

Out of all the dishes that were served to us, I have to say I enjoyed the Beef Stew Noodle Soup the most.  I almost finished I entire bowl even though it was supposed to be shared with other bloggers.

                                                         Combination Appetizer (385)

                                                             Fried Ice Cream (90)

Out of all the dessert they servied, this one was the best.  It reminded me a lot of mochi because it is basically coated ice cream. 

                                                Green Papaya Salad with Prawns (195)

                                                           Chicken Fried Rice (225)

                                                       Iced Vietnamese Coffee (120)

I understand why this is their specialty drink.  They allow you to be the one to mix the ingredients so you know what makes up this magnificent drink.  I give it 5 stars and I certainly recommend others to give it a try.

                                                  Pan Fried Noodles with Prawns (325)

                                                 Pandan and Yellow Mung Bean (50)

                                                             Pomelo Salad (245)

                                                            Vegetarian Roll (190)

Since I was a little late, I missed out on the appetizers.  That is alright since I rarely order appetizers anyway.  I asked the other bloggers what they thought of the appetizers and they told me they loved the dishes especially the Vegetarian Roll.

                                                           Prawn Fried Rice (255)

                                         Vermicelli Salad with Grilled Pork & Rolls (275)

                                                      Vietnamese BBQ Pork (285)

                                                       Vietnamese Jell-O

I love the fact that this dessert dish has coffee jelly underneath it which is something most people don't know.

Overall, this restaurant is not unlike any Vietnamese Restaurant you have ever tasted because the Mama Fong is very good.  I certainly recommend paying this place a visit when you are near the area.

That's one good trivia about the restaurant ownerships! :) One marketing strategy they can do now is to create a Facebook fan page and update their timeline with many posts about promos, offerings and events.

I've been seeing this restaurant in Greenbelt and at first I thought it was French. Turns out, this is a Vietnamese resto pala. Anyway, I'll try to check this out soon when I'm in the area. I haven't really immersed myself in Vietnamese cuisine yet.

The Beef Stew Noodle Soup and Vietnamese Roll look interesting. But the Vermicelli Salad with Grilled Pork & Rolls and Vietnamese BBQ Pork looked the same. I hope that's not the case when it comes to taste
