Had a great lunch at le BAT: seabass ceviche with endives in a tarama sauce with Thai basil, lemongrass and coconut milk. All the different tastes clash and get along. Each bite is a surprise that works.
But what I went there for was its great vegetable tempura, with ultra-light panko breading. This veg tempura is the standard garniture for its ceviche lunch dishes. It is one of the best things there. Why isn't it specified on the menu? Looking at the tempura-less menu (which changes all the time) at the door, we nearly left and went to A.noste.
For those who don't eat meat, Le BAT is an excellent option. The ceviche menu has about 8 dishes, and only 2 are meat; the others are all seafood. The plats du jour have one meat dish and one fish dish.
Let me go back to the veg tempura. It is so good, so light, and so attractive-looking that those antichrists, I mean children who swear never to eat veg, eat and love this.
Mine de rien, the lunch that looks and feels so light is quite filling. It is the 3rd time in recent weeks where I went, meaning to have its wonderful desserts, and ended up being too full.
Hubby poo and I had the same seabass ceviche with ginger and (Thai) basil.
Since it was lunch, we only had perrier water, no wine. one coffee with mignardises. 40 euro for the two lunches (both of us had the same seabass ceviche). And no reservation. What not to like.
