I haven’t been posting so much on my blog these last times as I needed a break and felt more like publishing pictures on instagram but now I’m back with a new restaurant review about Paname in Luxembourg city. Besides their cocktails served in the evening or the cup of coffee on the terrace in summer, you should check out their sunday brunch:
For Luxembourg I must say: eggs benedicts (11,60€) finally available in town 🙂 Even if the quality could be improved by using better quality ham and cripier baguette – the use of organic eggs for all of the egg variations is great though! Another plus: they have so many different poached egg plates – I just love it! Poached eggs is the only thing I don’t often prepare at home so I enjoy eating those when having brunch in a restaurant.
If you aren’t too hungry I would recommend the “Dirty Egg-Burger” with scrambled eggs, truffle and panchetta chips (10,50€), otherwise my favorite is clearly “Los Rancheros” (10,80€) with 2 poached eggs, black beans, tomatoes, guacamole and fresh cilantro – yum! Other egg preparations are “Les Tchatchouka” (11,50€) with poached eggs, eggplant, chickpeas and bell pepper, “Huevos Rotos” (11,80€) with poached eggs, pancetta, ham and potatoes and “Egg Tacos” (11,40€) with tacos, guacamole, poached eggs and spinach. Other savoury dishes served for sunday brunch are different salads, avocado toast with beetroot and rucola & dried tomato toast with artichokes and black olives (12,80€), “Mac & Cheese & Truffe” (13,40€) as well as “Croque Comté” (9,40€) and “Croque Chèvre” (9,20€) with goat cheese.
On the sweet side, you have the choice beetween granola with maple syrup (4,50€), classic pastries (1,50€), toasted brioche with dulce de leche (3,5€) and crisp matcha waffles served with average chocolate but mouth-watering dulce de leche (6,00€).
For their coffee they use Italian Valentino coffee beans – no speciality coffee as I love it but good quality coffee with a delicate caramel flavour and a nice milk foam for the cappuccino (3,00€). Latte macciato with soy milk is available, too. For the sunday brunch, special cocktails are served like “Bloody Panamary” (10,50€) “This Grenade is a Bomb” (11,50€) “French Pim’s” (10,50€) or the brunch classic “Mimosa” (9,00€) with fresh orange juice, grand marnier and prosecco. They also have non-alcoholic fresh orange, lemon or grapefruit juice (4,50€) and homemade lemonades with agave sirup (4,00€).
All in all a modern, hipster-friendly brunch place with a great choice of “à la carte” egg variations as I love them. The quality of the products (except from the organic eggs) as well as the quality of the service could still be improved. The staff wasn’t overly friendly but the plates were served quickly. If you want to have breakfast during the week, you will find some of their best-selling plates on the regular menu: “Les Tchatchouka” and “Los Rancheros” as well as the avocado and tomato toast or sweet treats like brownie with custard (7,00€) or cheese cake (7,00€).
