Description by the editorial board

Lillo & Ella welcome you every week-end between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. in their big open patio. It is the perfect place for weekend brunch. Its brunch menu is clever, bending traditional Asian elements into interesting dishes.

The menu is divided into three parts. First come the small shared plates including pastry basket, sprouts, noodles, crab rice, thai coconut-lemongrass soup or the local dashi soup. Then come the brunch entrees with noodle salad, thai muu noodles, miso salmon banh mi, Korean steak, lychee and Asian French toast or Chinese porridge. Finally, for sweet lovers three dishes are proposed, rice pudding, ella’s affogato or Nutella pie.

There's a smart cocktail list to go with the menu. There are takes on mimosas that incorporate Asian ingredients, like lychee and cherry yuzu, as well as options such as Le Caffeine, a White Russian variant with coffee liqueur, Añejo rum and a float of heavy cream.
