LARTIZAN Serendra: Boulangerie Française & Mariage Frères Tea Time!

LARTIZAN - Our Awesome Planet-61.jpg

LARTIZAN is the artisanal French Bakery, Restaurant, and Tea Salon of the French Baker founder, Johnlu Koa.

It started as a boulangerie in partnership with Mickey’s Delicatessen along Jupiter Street. Now, it has transformed into a French Cafe, with authentic French pastries and baked products, and a European cafe ambiance.

I love their signature teas from Mariage Frères in Paris.

We had the pleasure of dining with Johnlu recently and coming up with recommendations on having an awesome dining or tea time experience at Lartizan…

Lartizan’s ambiance is a bit intimidating at first, but it warms up as the people make you feel at home.

LARTIZAN - Our Awesome Planet-77.jpg
For something different, order the Red Wine Baguette.

LARTIZAN - Our Awesome Planet-39.jpg
Shaved “Jamon Iberico de Belotta”  (P795 +10% service charge – good for 2-3 persons) with Basket of breads and dips.

The Jamon Iberico is a good starter with bread or if you just want to hang out for tapas

LARTIZAN - Our Awesome Planet-37.jpg
Iced Passion Fruit Green Tea (P110 +10% service charge).

The iced teas are really good! They got their blends from their sister company Chatime and serve them in this double wall insulated glass so that the ice does not melt easily.

LARTIZAN - Our Awesome Planet-36.jpg
✮ Iced Black Forrest Fruit Tea (P110 +10% service charge).

Our personal favorite is the refreshing Black Forrest Fruit tea. You can taste real tea in this. 🙂

LARTIZAN - Our Awesome Planet-40.jpg
✮ Roasted Tomato Cappuccino (P265 +10% service charge).

I would recommend this unique tomato soup with roasted flavors and a froth on top, just like on a cappucino.

LARTIZAN - Our Awesome Planet-41.jpg
French Onion Soup (P255 +10% service charge)

You can also go for the classic French Onion soup, which was just OK.

LARTIZAN - Our Awesome Planet-43.jpg
Salad Maison (P295 +10% service charge). Poached organic egg, bacon, vinaigrette.

The salad is nice and good to share.

LARTIZAN - Our Awesome Planet-57.jpg
✮ Shrimp Linguini, Gambas-Style (P415 +10% service charge – good for 2 persons)

Love this because the pasta has a garlicy shrimp flavor. Good value and enough for 2-3 persons. 

LARTIZAN - Our Awesome Planet-51.jpgRoasted Half Chicken with French Butter & Herbs  (P475 +10% service charge) baked in a deck oven.

Order this if you are craving for a roasted buttery herbed chicken done the French way.

LARTIZAN - Our Awesome Planet-53.jpg
✮ Chicken Vol-Au-Vent with mix Wild Mushroom Sauce (P395 +10% service charge).

A surprising favorite was this chicken with mushroom sauce, served overflowing in a small round pastry.

LARTIZAN - Our Awesome Planet-54.jpg
Lartizan ensures an authentic European cafe experience by importing the plates, cutleries, and most of the items in the restaurant.

LARTIZAN - Our Awesome Planet-32.jpg
After your meal, I suggest you try the different Mariage Frères teas.

LARTIZAN - Our Awesome Planet-35.jpg
You can smell the teas and have a private tea education session with the Lartizan staff.

LARTIZAN - Our Awesome Planet-42.jpg
Jasmin Imperial (P185 Pot for one 400ml +10% service charge). The King of Jasmine Teas. This is made with very rare green tea. A wonderful combination of the most refined Jasmine flowers.

If you want something light and digestive, go for the green tea. Order the jasmine for its aroma.

LARTIZAN - Our Awesome Planet-45.jpg
Rumor has it that TWG was inspired by the original Mariage Frères in Paris.

LARTIZAN - Our Awesome Planet-47.jpg
You can order your own tea to take home. 

LARTIZAN - Our Awesome Planet-44.jpg
✮ Marco Polo (400ml Pot for one – P185 +10% service charge). Mariage Frères’ most famous secret is this mysterious blend that take you to distant lands and strange countries. The aroma of Chinese and Tibetan flowers and fruit lend it a uniquely velvety taste. Its extraordinatry bouquet makes Marco Polo the most legendary of flavored teas.

Make sure to try Mariage Frères’ signature Marco Polo black tea.  Best to order during tea time.

LARTIZAN - Our Awesome Planet-67.jpg

LARTIZAN - Our Awesome Planet-66.jpg
✮ Le Grande (Large – P850 +10% service charge). Three English scones with clotted fresh cream and jam.

Order Le Grande if you are dining with a couple of people (3-5) during tea time. The set comes with 3 scones…

LARTIZAN - Our Awesome Planet-64.jpg
+ 6 Savory Pastries (Tuna-Filled Tomato Quarter, Roasted Chicken Salad Sandwich Roll, Mushroom Mini Puff, Fresh Mango Cocktail Shrimp Boat).

…very tasty merienda bites… 

LARTIZAN - Our Awesome Planet-63.jpg
+ 6 Sweet Pastries (Mini Chocolate Eclair, Mini Fruit-Filled Pate-a-Choux, Parisian Macaron, Mini Fruit Tartlet).

…and sweet endings. 

LARTIZAN - Our Awesome Planet-60.jpg
Pistachio Sansrival (P180 +10% service charge).

We tried the sansrival for dessert. It was really good except they used too much butter.

LARTIZAN - Our Awesome Planet-59.jpg
Cappucino “Italian Slow Roast” (P145 +10% service charge).

You can also have coffee, but the teas are what makes Lartizan special.

Thank you to Johnlu Koa for the great tips on having an awesome dining experience at Lartizan!

LARTIZAN - Our Awesome Planet-1.jpg

Lartizan is the best place for a nice breakfast or tea time with friends in the Serendra area. The restaurant is very conducive for meetings, especially if you reserve the private room.

Service is homey. I love the idea of French ambiance with Filipino hospitality. The look of the place can be a bit intimidating though so you may want to dress up a bit for it.

We would recommend the Roasted Tomato Cappuccino, Shrimp Linguini, Gambas-Style, and Chicken Vol-Au-Vent with mix Wild Mushroom Sauce. Order the Iced Black Forrest Fruit Tea, and the Mariage Frères Marco Polo Tea for your drinks.

For tea time, order the Le Grande Tea Set with 3 scones + 6 savory bites + 6 mini-desserts, good to share for 3-5 persons.

Budget about P500-P700/head, depending on what time you’re dining.

Congratulations to Johnlu for this latest French cafe and restaurant concept in Serendra!
