For some French-inspired fare, make your way to Café Lilou in Manama. In the morning, try the omelet du Pirée filled with leeks and feta and served with hash browns and a tomato-herb salsa or the tartine sucrée, fresh raisin bread topped with mascarpone and ricotta cheeses and pear, then drizzled with chocolate and honey. Lunch calls for something filling like the Champs-Elysées, an open-faced steak sandwich on rye or the seafood pasta with prawns, smoked salmon, mussels, and asparagus. Save room for one of the house desserts such as the rich moelleux au chocolat or the delicate Swiss roll. Add a milkshake blended with homemade ice cream for extra decadence.
