    Wikipedia bashfully calls it ‘vaginal flatulence’ but queefs are substantively different from regular ol’ rectal farts. During sex or hot yoga or whatever, air caught in vaginal folds called rugae sometimes comes out. They have all the hilarity of fart sounds with none of the olfactory overshare of what’s new in your GI tract. Handled right, that sound made while fucking can bring two people closer. Queefs aren’t anything to be embarrassed about. Brunch at Cuivre though…

    Cold coffee, slow service and surprisingly unimaginative food. This place has slipped.
    Fantastic and cheap brunch !

    What a fantastic brunch !
    For 188 rmb : 3 courses and a drink ! I recommend the "no stress juice" = just fabulous
    And for french people : the best "croque-monsieur" in town !
    The service is good, don't wait too long and the decor is nice
    try it !
    Seemed like a good deal....

    I tend to not visit restaurants if I can't comfortably pronounce the name, but as some friends were heading there Sunday for lunch I thought I'd give it a shot.

    Overall the experience was pretty positive. Their Sunday brunch set seemed reasonably priced (for the setting) at 188rmb for three dishes and a drink.

    The first course we tried was 3 cannelles of salmon pate with cilantro and lime. It was ok, would have been better if it had been more of a cannelle of salmon tartare with cilantro lime, instead of a salmon-salad kind of deal.

    The second was a scrambled egg dish with spicy meatballs. The eggs were perfect, I don't think I've ever had scrambled eggs that perfectly cooked. The meatballs were probably spicier than they should have been, but that's to my taste, so I was pleased, but the average diner might not be. It really overpowered the taste of the meat and any other flavors in there.

    The last for me was a croque monsiuer, I know it's just a hot ham and cheese sandwich, I get that. but it's supposed to be a FANCY hot ham and cheese sandwich for the price that's being charged. I couldn't distinguish between it and what I make at home at 3am after a stint at Rhumerie.

    My girlfriend got the eggs Benedict as her egg dish, there was just too much hollandaise sauce. The sauce was nice, with a lovely hint of lemon, but it was running off all over the plate. They could have also torn instead of sliced their english muffin to get that craggy rustic texture.

    The food was ok considering setting and service, had those been the only notes, I would have considered it a pretty fair value. However two major mistakes dropped it down into the "not worth it" category:

    First, my GF found a full pin-bone in her salmon pate. Unacceptable, bush-league, and downright dangerous.

    Second, out of the four people at the table who got the eggs Benedict, every single egg was over-poached. Stiff, solid, waxy yolks. Every single one of them. Why not send them back? 2 people didn't mind, one was too hungover to make a fuss, and the other didn't want to wait for anything else. It wasn't my meal so I didn't presume. Plus if you're going to charge that much for eggs, get them right, and don't send them out if they aren't.

    I am more than prepared to pay nearly 200rmb sans booze at a brunch if it's of a sufficient quality, this just wasn't it.
