At 42º La Boheme, we discovered new textures and flavours during our lunch visit. Opened since July, Mathieu Guegan and his wife Huvi have created a French cafe in a heritage house. Coupled with simple decorations and some old collectibles, the ambience is casual. The only visible sign of the cafe in bustling Jalan Sri Bahari, is the small wooden sign, 42º La Boheme, hanging on the front gate.
Mathieu, who also runs the kitchen, learnt to bake since he was 12 and has spent years working in some restaurants. He makes his own bread and desserts and offers lovely pastries, galettes and quiches. Besides the short and fresh menu, a variety of desserts can be found displayed at the counter. The chalkboard showcases a selection of pizzas available only on weekends.
