If you didn’t already know, our beloved Hippopotamus at QT Museum Wellington is taking a break until the 8th February to get some building pampering. Rest up you talented people, we can’t wait to have you back to begin the new adventure that is 2018!
We at QT Museum Wellington didn’t want you to be lost for French eatery inspiration in the interim so we’ve put together a list of where to go when you are desperate for a feast of the ‘cuisine Française’ variety while Hippo is closed.
You may be aware that a lot of other tasty French restaurant options are also closed for an extended break at this time, with many not opening again until February.
Not to worry at all though, there are still plenty of delicious options to allow you to indulge French-style while in Wellington. Let us begin … Bienvenue!
The great thing about La Cloche is that you have three locations to choose from. They offer all day French fare that is refreshingly authentic. The pastries alone, such as the ‘Best Almond Croissants in the World’ are well worth the detox/diet slip.
Where: 134 Old Hutt Road
109 Featherston Street
26 The Terrace
You can’t deny that the French/Vietnamese fusion is a gift to us mere humans, and Apache brings it! A buttery baguette mixed with chilli, herbs and spices, and a splash of tasty meat, mayonnaise and a sneaky salady bit makes for a mean Banh Mi that is quite possibly one of the great tastes of the ages.
On top of just being plain yummy, Apache were the proud winners of the ‘Wellington on a Plate’ award in 2016 in the ‘Burger Welly’ category.
Where: 122 Wakefield Street
La Petite France
If it’s a deli that you what, then look no further than this delectable French infused store, La Petite France, that has the true taste of France on offer. From fromage to escargots, you will feel like you are in Paris. Buy pre-made French dishes or the ingredients to DYI – you won’t regret it.
Where: 4 Blair Street
Crepes a Gogo
Who doesn’t love a traditional French crepe? Most of us just can’t refuse the light, fluffy exterior stuffed with your favourite things. Heaven on a plate/crepe really.
Crepes a Gogo began as a hole in the wall but the delightful smells and amazing crepes have lent a very helping hand in encouraging an expansion into Auckland! Melt in your mouth goodness in Wellington and Auckland. No need for more explanation.
Where: 61 Manners Street
