Mm-hmm, yes, you read that right – the not so humble burger croissant has landed in Adelaide, and they’re being served up from a new French bistro and bar on Hindmarsh Square.
Le Pas Sage are the creators behind such Godly things. Having opened their doors at the beginning of March, they’re still a well-kept secret of the city, but just wait until the burg-lovers hear about this.
“Imagine sinking your teeth into a juicy beef patty, topped with melted cheese and fresh salad, all sandwiched between a freshly baked, flaky croissant bun,” is what Le Pas Sage is having us envision.
“Every bite is an explosion of flavors and textures that will leave you wanting more. It’s a savory masterpiece that’s sure to satisfy all your cravings.”
Owners Vlad and Charlotte are passionate about bringing a slice of France to Adelaide’s city centre, with Charlotte’s drive hailing from her food van businesses located across the European city.
“We wanted to create a true French Bistro – a place where people can come and have a glass of wine with some cheese or a full-course dinner at any time of day.”
But it ain’t all about the big bites; Le Pas Sage are also offering: ham and cheese crepes; leek fondu croissants with raclette cheese, cornichon and mortadelle; croque monsieur, and savoury tartines for breakfast and lunch. Voted as one of the best breakfast spots in Adelaide, mind you.
As for dinner, think: duck with mashed potato and berry-honey sauce; barramundi with sweet potato and sauce vierge; chicken soup, as well as plenty of share plates and charcutterie.
And what’s a French joint without a cheeky crème brulée.
While you’re completely and utterly indulging in your savoury and sweet sensations, sip on a fine French wine or spirit, or perhaps a cognac or calvado.
Adorned with vintage posters and contemporary artwork, the bistro is your step into a lowkey hideout in Gay Paree.
“It might not be the Louvre, but our wall is still worth having a look at.”
Le Pas Sage is open for your croissant burger needs on Mondays through to Fridays from 8am until 12am, on Saturdays from 9am until 12am, and on Sundays between 9am and 3pm.
