Le Petit Soufflé had us all intrigued by featuring a fusion of Japanese and French cuisines. Along with its fascinating indoor tree interiors, their dessert specialties have attracted a lot of foodie explorers to go to Poblacion, Makati and experience what they have to offer. As one of the foodie "explorers", I brought my boyfriend there on his birthday.

We arrived in Makati at around 6pm, which is hella traffic btw. The restaurant just had a few customers because it wasn't dinner time yet, plus it's a weekday. The place was spacious and the tables were carefully divided which gave its customers somewhat a private dining experience. The waitress let us pick where to sit and we chose to sit in the middle wherein you can view the restaurant's beautiful interiors. Slim trees with rolling pins dangling against them lit up the place and gave it a warm and outdoorsy vibe. Also brightening the area are yellow and white window panes up against the walls. And of course, the French experience wouldn't be complete without French Café Music.
I was hesitant to order a rice meal, however, I was really hungry that time so I did. Lol. For our mains, we ordered the Pork Bourguignon (PHP 425) and the Squid-ink Rice (PHP 395). The Pork Bourguignon is described as red wine-stewed pork leg served with fragrant garlic Japanese rice and Furikake sunny side up egg. The Squid-ink Rice is described as fresh seafood, shimeji mushroom and soft scrambled egg on delicious squid-ink rice. I liked the seafood plate better than the pork dish. The squid-inked rice is a complete standout and unique in its own way, compared to the rice of the pork leg. The mushrooms and eggs definitely add flavor and variety to the dishes. I must say, these are huge servings! My boyfriend and I did not finish them in one seating, we were so full!
For dessert, we had the Matcha Valrhona Ivoire 35% White Chocolate Soufflé (PHP 350). This is unsurprisingly perfect! Matcha and White chocolate just complement each other so well, plus, they're both my favorites. Dessert was that night's highlight. The soufflé is definitely a must try.
