Mon Petit Throbb is the sister restaurant to the famously popular ‘Throbbing Strawberry’. Situated right next to Montecasino and the hotels of Fourways, it is in an ideal location. This rustic restaurant, which is committed to supporting local trade by using local produce, is French-themed, and serves everything from breakfasts to late night dinners in a vibey yet homely atmosphere.
The menu at Mon Petit Throbb is expansive and interesting. Starters include the likes of the ‘Trecolore’ (layers of avocado, buffalo mozzarella, tomato and basil pesto) and chicken liver bunny chow flambéed in brandy. For mains, you have a choice of meaty options like the excellent Fillet Bordelaise, seafood options such as the Scottish Salmon (served on pesto mash and served with a strawberry, lime, ginger and soft chilli) and chicken options including the Chicken Parmagiano. There is also a selection of gourmet salads, pizzas and pastas.
For dessert – which are all homemade - there are a number of decadent options. The quirky chocolate pizza is topped with strawberries and ice creams and the sophisticated Torte Japonaise – comprised layers of almond meringue wafer pastry with coffee, chocolate and liqueur cream.
The restaurant offers a great selection of wines, including well-known champagnes, MCCs and blends and a huge variety cocktails. Mon Petit also boasts an artisan bakery, and has just signed up to partner with Truth coffee Cape Town, to bring that great artisan coffee flavour to Jozi.
The restaurant has a typical bistro feel, furnished with wooden tables, white wooden chairs and comfy couches to lounge on. The décor is eclectic, with ornaments and wine bottles everywhere and mismatched light shades. The kitchen is open so you can watch the chefs at work. The atmosphere is warm and intimate, making it a great romantic date venue.
