Piaf, 182 Grey St Shop 5, SOUTH BRISBANE QLD 4101

Piaf, a little sparrow.

It is also currently known as one of the best casual dining joints in BrisVegas. 

While taking a relaxing stroll down Grey Street, we spotted this cute French-styled bistro around the corner and surprisingly (not) our bunny taste buds were demanding us to sit and dine.  So we did.

We ordered Confit duck leg w’ parsnip puree, brocolini & jus ($24) and Pan seared white fish w’ roasted peppers, artichokes & salsa verde ($24). The dishes were presented very nicely. The duck leg tasted really yummy, oh which reminds me, **Beginning of a bunny’s gibberish ranting** I’ve noticed that I have this tendency of immediately liking the other travel bunny’s choice of meal and completely disregard the food on my plate. Whether it’s duck leg, beef ribs (as per my previous blog post), or even a McDonald’s burger **End of a bunny’s gibberish ranting**.

Fish of the Day was barramundi, the skin was crispy, the flesh in my opinion however, was slightly overcooked and tasted quite bland. A point to note is that the service at this restaurant is ordinary. My drink arrived at the table long after the mains with several reminders to our waitress (and at the time, there were only three open tables including us).  

At the end of our meals, we decided to ditch Piaf and head to the good old Max Brenner for desserts as their dessert menu only provides a very limited selection as follows:

Crème brulee;

Chocolate mousse w’ pecan praline & cointreau strawberries; and
Profiteroles w’ creme patissiere, caramel sauce & toasted almonds.

Piaf definitely has its uniqueness, e.g. a wall of vertical wooden slats and its simple & casual dinner menu. However, if it’s a true Parisian affair that you are after, alternatives should be considered.
