Le Papillion: The photograph at the top features one of my current favourite dishes: Curried Lentils with Yoghurt and Eggs. This is a taste-treat to start any day! The spices in the lentils are, of course, the very best from the “Isle Of Spice”. Eggs in Grenada are always more flavourful than those we have at home! Sit in this lovely poolside terrace and you can sample some delightful French Creole Cuisine. The wooded hillside setting, in the Siesta Hotel grounds, looks out over the pretty Morne Rouge Road, St George’s. Beyond lies the mountains and rainforest of Grenada. This cafe is ideal for a tasty breakfast or lunch.
The French-influenced menu features the freshest of Grenadian ingredients. Grenada’s French agricultural history is reflected in the choices on the menu. The local fruit juices at Le Papillion are a delight. Here is a Mango Fruit Juice, which is thick, creamy, cooling and delicious! We loved Poached Eggs with Provision Hash (made with a variety of Grenadian root vegetables, peppers and Thyme – lots of fresh Grenadian thyme!). Another favourite is Le Papillion Croque Madam. This is a lovely sandwich filled with ham and lashings of cooked callaloo (a green leaf similar to spinach). This is all topped with melted cheese and finished off with a fried egg:-
