Café Parti – International twist on European dishes

On the menu at Café Parti you can expect to find some typical European dishes, but with some slightly less expected international ingredients. I always struggle to choose between the Thai-style zingy lime carpaccio and the tuna tartare that comes with seaweed salad (no boring lettuce and tomatoes here!). The signature dish at Café Parti is an Asian-style bouillabaisse (fish broth) which I never manage to finish – it’s a huge bowl (pictured) with soft fish and crunchy bean sprouts, plus a pile of fresh coriander and spring onions on top.

The location of Café Parti is another reason I end up there so often. You’ll be able to see it as soon as you step out of St Pieters train station. Unlike some of the other standard bistro/snack bars on the square outside the station, Café Parti is a smarter, more relaxed place I like to take friends when they’ve just arrived. And my favourite time of the year to go is in summer when everyone dines on the huge terrace out the back. All the plants and shelter from the noise out the front makes it a little oasis after your journey.

Café Parti is also really popular for its Sunday brunch buffet (11am – 3pm) so be sure to book a table for this. And don’t expect to feel hungry for the rest of the day…
