CBD lunches: Roule Galette

I was recently joined by PHo and YP for a Friday lunch at one of my favourite Friday lunch venues, Roule Galette. Roule Galette serves galettes (savoury buckwheat crepes) and crêpes in tiny café on Scott Alley off Flinders Lane.

Some of the perks of food blogging include creative direction in venue choices and tasting rights. On this Friday we agreed to order three galettes and divide them so we all got to taste all three. We began our meal with a Perry from Henry of Harcourt ($11 for 500ml), a traditional accompaniment to galettes, and a nicely dressed side salad.


Our first galette was the Monsieur K ($14) that was filled with creamy melted raclette and topped with salty prosciutto.

Next came the Forestière ($9.50) filled with a decadent mixture of béchamel, bacon, mushrooms and cheese.

Our final galette was the Saint Jacques ($18) filled with flavourful sautéed leek and topped with seared scallops (a tiny bit more done than PHo and I would prefer).

Time constraints meant we skipped the crêpes. However PHo and a dropped into Breadwell to pick up some Macarons by Josephine ($2.50).
