$$ | Seddon | Modern Australian | Breakfast/Brunch | Outdoor Dining
My friend J and I ended up at Le Chien after our intentions to dine at Footscray Milking Station and Cornershop were shattered by the former being closed and the latter being impossible to find a park anywhere near the place (due to the flock of people choosing to spend their holidays in Yarraville)
So you could say we were more than relieved to finally get in somewhere, even if we did have to wait 10 minutes for a table.
The first thing that pops out at you as you enter Le Chien is the colourful artwork on the left side wall. I’m not entirely sure what they are trying to represent here as the painting is of a woman on all fours with the words “une femme, un chien” (a woman, a dog). I don’t think I’ll speculate, I’ll leave the interpretation up to you…
J’s chai tea was a generous portion and thankfully came with honey as it was otherwise quite bland. I opted for a much needed latte which was pleasant but certainly nothing out of the ordinary.
By this point J and I were both starving (it must have been nearly 1pm and we still hadn’t had anything to eat!) so it didn’t take long to decide on what to order. We both chose Le Chien’s corn fritters.
Despite the friendly customer service from our waitress, our fritters took ages to come out. I’m not sure if it was because we were starving or not but when they finally arrived we both were disappointed with the lack of food on the plate. At $17 you would expect an extra fritter or some other accompaniment. Nonetheless they were very tasty and cooked perfectly.
All in all would I travel to Seddon just to dine at Le Chien? Probably not. But if the opportunity arose and I was out of other options I would definitely come back and see what else they have on offer.
