La Mère Poulard, a world-renowned French restaurant, has brought its unintimidating, comforting, and delicious flavors of Mont Saint-Michel to the Philippines.
Its first Manila branch opened in January 2018 at SM Aura Premier and we got a taste of their incredible dishes!
The experience of having these puff omelettes cooked right before our eyes as we listened to the beat created by the whisking of eggs is something that has always been part of La Mère Poulard’s identity.
Chef Clement Marc Pierre Damotte, the head chef of La Mère Poulard – Philippines, was also present to share more stories about the restaurant, its dishes, and its history.
In 1988, Annette Poulard opened her first inn in the heart of Mont Saint-Michel, France. It didn’t take long for her to become famous in France and became “La Mère Poulard,” an honorary title awarded during that era to the country’s finest female cooks.
Upon trying La Mère Poulard’s different dishes, we realized why they were special. Besides being made from the best locally sourced ingredients, they serve their dishes in beautiful copper cocottes and pans like how it was served in Normandy, France.
Check out the images below to appreciate their wide array of French and Filipino meals with some dishes exclusively made in their Philippine branch!
