Secret Menu – Dedicated to our beloved foodies.

We in the South Bay don’t get the respect we deserve in terms of food appreciation. When we started Little Chef Counter, we wanted to change that. We wanted to bring great food and culinary passion to your south bay door-steps. Throw out the white cloth tables, the 5-star service, and all you have is a kitchen and a counter. A passionate kitchen dedicated on serving great dishes and a counter to welcome you into our Little Chef family.

Last night, we had the pleasure of serving a dish any passionate foodie would appreciate: a Fras Gras Poutine. It was our first off-menu item and we were pleased to see that it was well received by everyone. The dish sold out in a matter of a few hours!



The Fras Gras Poutine was only a precursor and peak to what’s to come in the near future. From now on, Little Chef Counter will dedicate an on-going secret menu to our beloved South Bay foodies (we know you’re out there.)

Be sure to sign up for our newsletter to see what we’ll have next week as we’ll no longer announce it via twitter or FB. Of course we’ll still have our occasional Little Chef Spotlight dishes, but our secret menu item will certainly have your mouth watering for days. 

What’s next? More Foie?

Menu Update – 3/2/12

We can’t believe that it’s already been 2 months since we’ve open! We appreciate all the support and fanfare we’ve been receiving since the Grand Opening. We’re always striving to improve, and we can honestly say, without all of your input and feedback, we wouldn’t be doing what we love everyday.

As a seasonal bistro, we would like to announce that we will be changing our menu bi-weekly based on what’s in season and what is readily available to us. We strive to keep our prices competitive without compromising our quality and presentation.

To start, let’s talk about what we’re taking off…

We got word a week ago from our seafood purveyor that fresh cod will be a little scarce for the next month or so… Our beloved fish&chips will unfortunately have to be put on hold. We apologize! We could always purchase the frozen stuff… but we wouldn’t be Little Chef Counter if we did. So we’re taking if off the menu. But we’re replacing it with some delicious –

Duck Fried: Chicken Sandwich/ Chicken Strips (not pictured)/ and Crispy Chicken Salad –

Crispy Chicken Salad (All Day)

Chicken Sandwich (Lunch only)

Another fan favorite that’s going off the menu is our Crispy Duck Risotto and our Duck Confit Sandwich. But I’m sure all our duck confit lovers will appreciate what we’re replacing the risotto with. I’ll let the picture explain –

Duck Confit (Dinner only)

Please be sure to stop by soon before our next menu change!

As always, we will be uploading our latest menu on our website.

Valentines Day Special!
