Here comes some shameless plugging for a little French takeaway close by to where I live. Monsieurs, run by Guy and Anita Jenkinson is Poulton-le-Fylde's best kept secret. The food is freshly prepared using excellent quality local produce.
Typical main courses include beef bourgignon, Moroccan lamb tagine, pork dijon, coq au vin, Basque chicken and a plat du jour. The chicken livers cooked in sherry are well recommended as are the home-made desserts which are to die for.

Don't believe me? Have a look at UKTV's Good Food channel review...
Guy and Anita Jenkinson have run this unique takeaway for 13 years, providing piping hot, homecooked, French-orientated dishes for the lucky denizens of Poulton-le- Fylde. Produce is as local as possible, and you can expect dishes like beef bourguignon, navarin of lamb, pork dijon, chicken à la crème, as well as spaghetti bolgnaise and lasagne. New this year is sloe and apple duck and there's a daily plat du jour. A little gem. Open evenings only, closed Monday.

Tonight I called in and as a Valentine's day special, was treated to a huge profiterole with the best choux pastry, the yummiest filling of whipped fresh vanilla pod infused custard and cream, hot chocolate sauce, toasted almonds and fresh strawberries. Damn sexy food which was so good, I had to go and lie in a darkened room as I was struggling to breathe following the food-fest.

  1. Serously do check it out... I had the chicken curry and damnation it was G-O-O-O-O-O-D! :-D

  2. Hi Debs,
    Thanks for checking in. Ah yes, forgot you had dipped your toe into planet chicken curry with mango chutney. True delish-ness. I thought I'd do a bit of shameless plugging for Anita & Guy's place as they're two of my oldest mates and deserve a bit of business going their way. You coming over soon for a Monsieurs take-out?
