The Delicious French Cuisine

Published by Manoj Pradeep

Hello friends, hope you all are doing well. Today I'm here to share with you all a perfect place to have some delicious French cuisine in Tbilisi. The story by which I discovered this restaurant is really funny and I would share it with you as well. It was another normal day in Tbilisi and I was listening to lectures in my university. The lecture got over early and there was a gap of two hours after which I had another class to attend. Me and my friend was sitting in a bench in the university garden. We were discussing what to do with the left over time. We really didn't want to go to the library at that time. It was around 12 in the noon and studying at this time will definitely make a person sleepy. Even if I manage to study without sleeping in the library I will definitely doze off when I attend my next class. My friend suggested that we would go back home and come again after two hours but I was not interested of traveling all the way back home and coming back again to university.

Finally we both made a decision to go to Pekini avenue and have a scoop of ice cream at Luca polarae. Then if we had time, we thought of having a little shopping there. Having a plan we crossed the street opposite to the university and walked to the parallel road which is called as Kazbegi avenue and reached the bus stand. We were waiting for a bus to Pekini street. After a couple of minutes the bus numbered 150 from State university h/b came to the bus stand. We boarded the bus as we knew it would take us to Pekini for sure. It was just a few minutes travel from our university to Pekini street where we got down at a bus stop opposite to Luca polarae. We crossed the road and went to the entrance of Luca Polarae and we were shocked! Our plan collapsed because Luca Polarae had a tag on the door which stated "Closed". We were really disappointed and we didn't know what to do now. We were actually hungry and we needed something to eat. My friend suggested of going to Texas or McDonalds which were at a walking distance from the place where we were standing. After a short discussion and an argument we both came to a conclusion to eat in a restaurant that we had never eaten before. We were walking down the lane of pekini street and right next to the stairs that takes you to the metro station we saw this restaurant called as "Entree". By looking at the board we were able to recognize it was a French cuisine and according to our decision we entered the restaurant to try something new. We had never been to the restaurant before.

After settling down we took the menu card that was kept on the table and having a look at all the dishes available in the restaurant. Actually it was our first visit to a French restaurant and we couldn't really understand some of the dishes in the menu card. There we met a cool woman who was working in the restaurant and she helped us to pick the kind of dish we wanted to taste. After this first time experience we came here every once in a while and during our travel to different parts of the city we saw the branches of this restaurant located in different areas. Entree can be seen in Pekini street which was the first one we visited and apart from that there are branches in Taktakishivili Street, Abashidze street, Chavchavadze avenue and Agmashenebeli Avenue. The food available in this restaurant has a classic taste and a wonderful aroma, especially the coffees. The restaurant is open everyday from morning 8'O clock to 10'O clock in the night.

So, here comes some of the important questions which everyone will want to know about a restaurant.

What are the items available in Entree?

Among the rolls and buns there are different types such pie with apple, bun with raisin, bun with chocolate, roll with apricot, bun with chocolate or almond, bun with chocolate or raisin, croissant, pommes, mini croissant, mini bun with chocolate, mini bun with raisin, palmier and Danish ananas or pineapples.
