Papagayo, a real French touch.
Owned by Eric, hailing from France. It started all because he wanted to have a place to invite friends for drinks and food, who would know selling airplane is his real business. He started this little venue in the summer of 2017 in Qingzhiwu, it quickly became the gathering point of the Frenchies, they would come after work, singing French drinking songs while enjoying their champagne and pâté on the baguette, if it's the weekend, it would probably starts from lunch time. After some major changes and decoration during the winter time, now Papagayo is more like restaurant that serves French food and drinks, it has a full menu from entrée to dessert.
You can start with a glass of Ricard (15RMB) and the Foie Gras for 129RMB, or Charcuterie Platter for 189RMB, if you are going with a group of friends for aperitif, then the Cheese & Charcuterie Platter (560RMB) would be a great choice to go with a bottle of champagne.
There is a variety choice of salad, Salmon Salad (108RMB), Tomato Salad and Tuna Potato Salad are both for 39RMB, if you are vegetarian, the Vegetable Salad (28RMB) is for you.
Their seafood is quite famous, The Ice Shrimp with French Mayonnaise (75RMB) provides good protein, sometimes when Eric would put on a special sales for Lobster, less than 100RMB, you can enjoy it cooked simply but nicely in butter and garlic.
Speaking of French, of course the big things got to be the meat. Pork Chop in Creamy Mushroom Sauce (99RMB) is finger licking good.
