Apparently the restaurant was the first seafood restaurant that ipenee in Krakow. In 1993. Fir lunch I had a Belgian restaurant. Fish soup and a piece of beef - onglet - à l'échalote. Correct. Please no more restaurant for the moment ...
On our last restaurants dinners we had white asparagus both times. The area where we live has the best white asparagus and since the season is so short (end of April till end of June), we eat them whenever we can. Also at home, by the way.
Went out with friends last night to a country pub/restaurant. I rarely have steak because it often disappoints being either chewy or tasteless or both but the food here is good and on the menu they had onglet steak which I had never heard of but guessed it was a French cut. I was not disappointed. Beautifully cooked and full of flAvour I shall certainly have that again.
I was very disappointed at the coast that there were no green asparagus at the market. Asparagus is one of the few things that grows in that area, along with strawberries and kiwis, but all those I saw were white.
I much prefer the green ones so have been buying lots now that we are back in Toulouse and there are many small growers selling them at the market.
We are my wife and I both allergic to wild asparagus. The short green I es. Last we ate them I was mildly affected but my wife had to rush to a pharmacy to get some cortisone I think so she could breathe !
I had a delicious ceviche mixto last night with fish and large prawns topped with roasted corn nuts. It was accompanied by a huge slice of avocado, roasted corn meal wrapped in a corn husk and some homemade tortilla chips. Anyway, it was so huge that I could not finish it, but somebody else took care of it as it would have been a terrible shame to waste any.
a. is spending the night elsewhere (at my dad's, but my dad isn't there, so with my dad's wife and my brother), so we used the opportunity to go to a restaurant without her. ended up chosing a wine shop with a small restaurant that is right across the street from the school i'd like to send her to and from the house my dad lives in ... so we sat outside at a table on the side walk with a view of the school building ... both mr. r. and i chose the boeuf bourguignon, and for dessert i had creme brulee and he had some kind of apple cake with caramalized almonds. can't tell you exactly what wines we had, i tend to forget that ...
The trick for the mussels like in Belgium is to drink beer ;-). Yesterday I had some beef and vegetables. Picture 9 of the menu - 2 blocks from my hotel one block from the lady massage. Very good. Very cheap dead in center of Shanghai.
That sounds lovely! Though being a cat, my favourite is salmon tartare. I'm glad you seem to be having a pleasant time in Paris. I love going there (sometimes on my way to other places) because I have good friends there. Like all large cities, Paris can be harsh.
I had a wonderful, wonderful lunch at one of Surrey, British Colombia's famously good Indian places. I don't particularly like Indian food, but this was so good its excellence simply could not be denied.
Today was a lovely, lovely plate of beef tartare, roquette salad, and crisp fries. Happy.
I'm a tad taken aback at this as I thought that you shunned eating raw beef Bixa(I say this because I posted having dined on the same in a French restaurant in Brigehampton and recall you recoiling. I'm pleased that you braved it and seemingly enjoyed it).
That wasn't me who recoiled! I've loved raw beef my entire life, although gave up eating it for a long time because of a really bad stomach thing that was suspected to have come from raw ground beef. But having it in a restaurant that routinely serves the dish gave me no qualms.

We've had lots of family get togethers over the last few days, celebrating various family birthdays including our son's 40th. For some reason the my family seem confuse 'restaurant' with 'Gastro Pub' .
Some pubs serve excellent food, but they are few and far between...consequently I've eaten a lot of awful pub food over the past few days...how anyone can mess up a Sunday roast is beyond me...and the steak I had last week (medium rare) was tough as old boots. We have another meal out today and then nothing for a couple of weeks giving my constitution time to recover
Trying to explain to my family that inexpensive should not be the ONLY criteria for choosing where to eat. Mind you...the company is good and the beer palatable...
The day before yesterday was seafood at ´le bar a huitres' close to saint germain. Very good. For lunch I took my daughter to our Thai next door. Good. Tonight we sleep at dijon. Seems a nice hotel and has a restaurant. So my wife says make a reservation for a table. I obeyed. And realised the restaurant of the hotel is a 2 stars Michelin. Will be exp.. err good.
So hostellerie du chapeau rouge- it was in center of Dijon. 4 meals + zakouskis. Zucchini with foam of zucchini etc. Hummm. Sometimes I find vegetables recipes more interesting than traditional ones with meat or fish - this was the case) Fish (maigre ?) with vegetables foam crispy things and some sauce. Lamb same as above I think sauce with honey and ... Lemon sorbet. All of this with a glass of wine chosen by the sommelier. Fabulous. We then walked around as it was the ´fete de la musiqué (musical party'). .
So I tried Malian food today. My first time. Close to gare de l est in paris. Quite good actually and some nice people. With some fruit juice since they probably have no licence to sell alcohol or don't bother or are former alkies or muslims. Don't care it was good and the juice excellent. We had a Leffe just in front of the station afterwards.
