Chez Pierre, Metairie, LA Report #4

This is the Clearview Pkwy. location which is the only one I’ve been to.  Even though I’ve only been here for dessert they also have a Vietnamese food menu with pho, vermicelli bowls and other Vietnamese fare.  The French were in Vietnam so long they taught the Vietnamese all their culinary tricks.  Last time I was here I had a creme brulee, which even though it didn’t have the crispy caramelized top, was one of the most delicious custards I’d ever tasted.  The coffee is also great.  The pictures can’t do justice to the beauty of the desserts and yumminess.  And they’re open everyday from 6am-10pm!  Go there.  Eat.

SUPPLEMENTAL REPORT:

I still haven’t made it to this place to try their Vietnamese food menu, but with a dessert selection like this can you blame me?  The Napoleon and Cannoli were delicious, but that chocolate mousse cake was outstanding!  I also had a cup of café au lait and I can honestly say it was the best I ever had.  I didn’t even sweeten it.  Much better than the café au lait the Café Du Monde serves.  I guess at Café Du Monde they mass produce it to cater the throngs of tourist that come through every day.  Anyway, I love this place.

I finally visited their other location which is also in Metairie, but closer to New Orleans. Nice looking place. Since it’s Mardi Gras season I came in for one thing. King Cake. We got a cream cheese filled one. Very good! Fresh and not overloaded with tons of icing, which is the case with a lot of King Cakes. Come in and get one!

SUPPLEMENTAL REPORT:

Stopped in today and saw that little yellow cake with no label in front of it. I asked what it was and they told me a lemon Doberge cake. I LOVE Doberge cake! I said, “GIMME”! And I took it home as fast as I could to dig in.

It wasn’t a Doberge cake. I looked up the definition of Doberge and it says it’s a cake made of, “Multiple thin layers of cake alternating with dessert pudding”.

This was just a three layer cake. Yeah, three is “multiple”, but every one I’ve ever had had many more than three. And these weren’t thin. And they didn’t have pudding between them.

But it was good! Just not Doberge. Don’t let them lie to you like they lied to me. Demand they slice it open before you take it home! They can always glue it back together if you decide you don’t want it.
