Voo La Voo Cafe--france in Fort Lauderdale




The ambiance--2 blocks from 2 major streets--takes you out of the city and puts you in a country atmosphere. It almost feels like you eating in a neighbor's garden outside of Paris.


The food is excellent from the Ratatouille crepe ($11) with a crisp, crunchy crepe filled with eggplant, zucchini, red and green peppers in a tomato stew with basil and Swiss cheese and green salad on the side. I don't remember ever having a crispy crepe but Philippe, from Paris, was with us and said that was the way his grandmother use to make them and that they were buckwheat crepes. He had, I believe, the Chicken Bechamel crepe (($12) while Allen had the smoked ham and cheese omelet ($8) and both finished every bite. We ended splitting a Poire Belle Helene sweet crepe ($10) made with chocolate syrup, pears, toasted almonds and vanilla ice cream which was delicious (though I didn't taste or see the almonds).


This is not an easy street to find and when you do it sort of takes you aback as there are, possibly, 3 restaurants almost melding together, but I really couldn't tell, on a very quiet street in the middle of the city.


I enjoyed this little bit of France in Wilton Manors but--and here is where I will get my head handed to me LOL--I will not go back. Why not?


It has to do with my preferences such as liking full service, not having to go to a counter, order my food and drinks, paying and then having to serve my own drinks and having no idea where straws are or getting a glass of ice for a soda or serving myself with thimble cups of warm water. I don't like not getting receipts when paying cash.


Also I would suggest eating lunch after 2 PM because parking is a mess with numerous 'no parking here' signs during the lunch time and the 'neighbors', such as the yoga business obviously don't cooperate with the restaurants as they had many empty spots and all had the 'for yoga only' signs. I can understand their reasoning but that deters people from coming to the area already having many private parking lots for people living there.


I don't like eating outside but the alternative was sitting inside on tall, small tables. Luckily it wasn't THAT hot today but I can't see sitting outside from May to October.


I don't mind, (and I often do eat,) eating in fast food restaurants, but I know what to expect and what to do whereas with this new 'fad' of part fast food and part full service, I very seldom return to part service restaurants.


 


Let me just end that I thoroughly enjoyed the Voo La Voo food and setting, will recommend it but will not return.
