No more nuggets from nowhere, La Pépite restaurant has decided to create the French, sustainable and transparent version coming in many fashions! In this little corner set in Paris 9th arrondissement, nuggets are homemade with French free-range and GMO-free chicken. Coming in boxes of 4, 6, 9 or 20 nuggets, nugget sandwiches, vegan nuggets and sweet nuggets, this is a genuine golden mine to enjoy on site or out!
Of course, there is the Pépite Classique with ground chicken coated in corn-flakes, a must! But the house also comes in with even more scrumptious alternatives or spicier ones! The Mamma is the Italian nugget with grana Padano, basil and pine nuts, while the Ninja comes with a more Asian version with soy sauce and ginger. As for the Lance Flamme, the name is evocative and not for sensitive taste buds, based on several chili peppers and paprika! Here, even vegans can enjoy nuggets thanks to the Brigitte Bardot coming in plant-based version.
To change from the box of 6, the restaurant prepares sandwiches based on nuggets and brioche bread! Spreads are homemade, lemonade as well, and one can enjoy fries and seasonal vegetables as sides. As for dessert, you can choose between chocolate croustites – the sweet version of nuggets – or panna cotta.
We tried the vegan version based on chickpea, very complete and spicy enough to prevent this too plant-based taste. Very crunchy thanks to corn-flakes, this is the perfect alternative to those who would rather avoid chicken! The Mamma is certainly the fluffiest one, with a nice Italian-inspired taste, and the Classique holds its promise, flavorful, with a side of quality fries. We had to cheat a bit and give a go to the three chocolate croustites that were just a dream! As for the homemade lemonade, it is the perfect drink to pair this healthier and sustainable made in France meal.
Shall we discover this nugget, then?
