Miss G. invited me to this bright and beautiful bakery in Pinecrest, close to where she lives. Little Chicken had to tag along because I did not want to leave her home alone. This Boulangerie Boul’Mich is the 4th and newest location; the others are in Key Biscayne, Aventura and Coral Way.
The menu was vast, with breakfast and lunch items, including sandwiches, pasta, and a soup of the day. All breakfast dishes came with a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice and a cup of American coffee, which was marvelous.
We started out with Smoked Salmon Tartare – diced smoked salmon, avocado, scallions, coriander and citrus dressing. This dish was charming, with lots of personality and character. The avocado added creaminess and depth of flavor. It came with a big salad on the side, with a dash of balsamic vinegar.
The Key West Omelette was surprising – it was not a regular omelet even though it looked like one from the outside. It was made with Norwegian salmon, sautéed onions, and capers. Most omelets are mostly egg with some filling, this one was mostly salmon, with some egg. We are talking tons of pretty and fresh salmon stuffed in a thin layer of egg. It was magical.
Little Chicken had the French Toast “Pain Perdu” with strawberries and bananas. I barely got to taste this as she latched on to this dish with a passion. I got a tiny bite, and it was fluffy and delicious.
La Boulangerie Boul’Mich also offers a variety of pastries and desserts that are prominently on display in order to tempt you. Boul’Mich, by the way, is a nickname given to Boulevard St. Michel in Paris, and even though I did not get a French vibe here, it definitely had an aura of simple elegance, an energetic atmosphere, and contemporary décor. The service was also outstanding – our waitress always approached the table with a massive smile.
