Jingle Bells! Jingle Bells! Jingle Bells Rock! It’s December, it’s that time of the year and it’s nearly Christmas. This only means it is time to go shopping and pick up some presents and where else but the newly opened Westfield Shopping Centre would fulfil all our shopping needs. The largest shopping centre in the city also houses more than 40 dining outlets. Of course, the one I was hellbent on trying was Croque Gascon, opened by Pascal Aussignac and Vincent Labeyrie who also own the 1 Michelin starred Club Gascon.
Croque Gascon is located in the Balcony dining area of Westfield – the ‘foodhall’ area of this shopping centre. The outlet features a 40 sq m open plan kitchen where you can see your meals being prepared. It is hard to meet their outlet despite the dining hall being packed during lunch service – it has an unmistakably French air about it with legs of Bayonne ham, cannelles and some other sample dishes proudly on display.
