J'adore la bouffe. I love food. 10 points pour le service. 10 points pour la bouffe. That's it that's all folks.

Café Vasco da Gama
Basically, you go up to the counter, you pick what you want and then you sit and wait for your meal. People that work there are friendly, quick and efficient. They have to be because there are lots and lots of people eating there and getting food to go. The choices: there weren't as many salads as I'd wanted and the paninis were really overpriced. I will NOT pay 13$ for a panini, even if it has duck in it.
I ended up having three salads: beet salad, lentil salad and somekind of niçoise salad. All quite tasty I'd say. Tastier than they looked anyway. This was served in a long plate with 2 pieces of bread with some olive oil. A nice addition to the plate, I found. I didn't write down all the little details about the three salads. I just know that the beets were a tad undercooked (I HATE that!). The niçoise: lots of green beans, not much tuna. The lentils were actually very tasty, with somewhat of a citrus sauce. Quite tasty indeed! It was a very nice mix of flavors: the earthy-ish taste of the lentils and the punch of the citrus sauce.
I have nothing to say about the service. It was good and it was quick. They're used to the table turnover, you can tell. I also took the rest of my lunch in a doggy bag and the waitress came back with it in 2.5 seconds (I swear!).
And now, the scores.
Food: 7/10 I mean, we're talking salads here
A good place to go for a quick lunch or if you want to take something to go.
ps: They also cater small and big parties!

Great place. I go there every week for brunch. Try the duck confit sandwich with a beet salad.
a tad above my lunch price but I'll sure try it once! Thanks!
