Pascal Tepper French Bakery is a modern French bistro and bakery. This branch, one of two in Dubai, is located on the ground floor of the Pfizer Building in Dubai Media City. Its interior looks like a mishmash of More Café and Jones The Grocer…in a good way. The restaurant is dominated by a self-service area for salads, something Pascal has become quite famous for, and which my son (a regular there) quickly ordered.
I took a long look through their interesting menu, came close to ordering an Entrecote steak but ended up with their gigantic Australian Wagyu Burger instead. If it did not have a (sunny side up) fried egg on it, I would have nagged at how uncomfortably tall the burger was…you literally need hinges on your jaw to bite into this sucker. But once the egg yolk started running, all was forgotten and forgiven – I love fried egg. That said, I will try the steak next time (and I recommend you do too).
My son wolfed down his humongous salad in half the time it took me to have my burger, obviously liking it – a lot. Portion sizes are BIG at Pascal.
Service was friendly, smiley and prompt. Prices are reasonable for the quantity, quality and real estate; remember, you’ll be rubbing shoulders with the madmen of Dubai out here. I’d probably visit Pascal’s regularly if I worked around Media City but would I drive out there specifically to have a meal? Probably not. But I wouldn’t for Jones, PQ or Paul either.
