Mouffetard Saigon – Paris – France Visit Review: 13,6

Rue Mouffetard is always a neighborhood where the choice of the restaurant turns out to be a flip-flop, between the tourist traps and the extremely rare establishment that stands out. True to my reputation as a fighter of the impossible, I took my courage with both hands to find a small address at affordable prices.   As fortune favors the brave, I was not [...]

Crabe Royal – Paris – France Visit Review: 11,6

Then I say Bravo !

Then I say Bravo, not so much for the quality of food but especially for a perfectly orchestrated marketing concept.First, you place "Royal" in your name, it immediately pretty rocks! You are settling place Madeleine, you can only be good fellowships. You take a filthy animal (the Kamchatka crab) which is an ecological disaster but with fine flesh and you sell it as the best crab in [...]

La Fine Gueule – Paris – France Visit Review: 10,4

Is sympathy enough ?

This is the question that arises out of this wine cellar that offers some dishes, more in table d'hôte format than real restaurant. We know that we do not come here to enjoy exceptional dishes.The welcome is warm, friendly, we want to be drift.But a vegetable soup is simple, not complicated. And often good. But do not forget simple things like rinsing the leeks (cut the head [...]

H Kitchen – Paris – France Visit Review: 11,4

Not for the setting !

The least we can say is that you don't come here for the setting. Japanese people have generally accustomed us to much better. It's not that it's ugly, it's not that it's extravagant, but there is nothing! It is no longer Japanese sobriety, it is as warm as a Siberian storm swooping on Hokkaido an evening of November. Tables, chairs, a touch of paint to renovate, white and brown, not [...]

Plume – Paris – France Visit Review: 13

Price of author

I am always worried when someone self-proclaims "author". After all, the influence of my literary studies obliges, is it not up to the reader to decide who is an author? And then you have to be careful. Barbara Cartland or Henry Bordeaux are authors. One for the worse, the other completely forgotten.    But the plate of gnocchi with tarragon, watercress, rabbit and [...]

Le Cherche Midi (Dum Dum !) – Paris – France Visit Review: 9,6

Carnage at Colonnata...

  What more can you shout than "Murderers!" when you make a Bacon Colonnata suffer as they do in this establishment? And yet, the College Culinaire de France label could make believe that here they respect such a beautiful product.The photo tickles your brain? Oh yes ! Not only is there a lemon, but the bacon is bathed in this juice. No sooner it has passed the door of [...]

L’Essentiel – Deauville – France Visit Review: 15,4

I've got gut ! That's Essentiel !

Visit that is just prior obtaining the Michelin star. But don't be fooled, I have not changed a line! After the exhaustive list of TripAdvisor, friends are my second selection of restaurants. You, dear reader, you also have my blog, and I thank you for following me! Being the last stop of our stay in Deauville, normal that I take care of the selection. No great originality as [...]

Pavillon Augustine – Trouville – France Visit Review: 14

Face to pavilions

This is exactly the type of disconcerting establishment. Because on the outside appearance, we rather want to escape this modern pavilion with large windows, which looks more like the tourist trap than the honest table. But on the advice of a friend, I pushed the door. Even if Antigone II Gonatas said: "Keep me from my friends, my enemies, I take care of it", sometimes you have to [...]

Le Bréard – Honfleur – France Visit Review: 12,6

Très doux, trop doux.

Who was Charles Bréard? I think I spent more time trying to figure out who this gentleman was than writing this article. And yet I do not think he is small. Writer and historian of the nineteenth century, he left to posterity only a few books on the navy and sailors. As well as his name at a restaurant in Honfleur. Probably his best posterity.The restaurant has a nice atmosphere, [...]

Le petit bouchon – Trouville – France Visit Review: 13,6

All for starters

If at first you could think of a Lyon inhabitant lost in Trouville, the name of little cork is perhaps more reference to the float of fishing rods that we dined with perseverance at the edges of the docks at the time when we had this patience. What we will find in our old age ...Or is it the impressive list of wines and spirits à la carte that gave birth to this appellation? The [...]
