Cafe de l’Orangerie – Japanese Italian Fusion

Cafe de l’Orangerie has been on my list of places to try for quite some time… especially since I enjoy both Japanese and Italian food.

This little cafe in Marpole is in the same tiny mini mall as Penang Delight and gets fairly busy. Due to the tight quarters, the din from neighbouring tables can get quite loud. The lighting in the back isn’t great so, if you’re lucky, try grabbing a spot by the window.

We started out with their Crispy Fried Prawns ($5.50) which was basically prawn tempura with a crispy panko coating and served with a creamy tartar sauce.

The Curry with Pork Cutlet ($11.95) is a winner. The crispy exterior of the fried pork cutlet keeps the pork inside moist and tender. Perhaps not as good as Tonkatsu Ginza Bairin in Hawaii… but the curry was on point.

The Masago de Creamy Spaghetti ($9.80) is the dish that I had my eye on. It’s super creamy and rich and served with squid, mushroom, asparagus, roe, and cream.

As stated above, the restaurant and the mini mall are quite small so come here early to find a parking spot and avoid the rush.
