The bar and drinks corner!

The great thing about a good restaurant/cafe is the regular, even if partly, change of menu!
This is why I’m always having difficulties keeping away from BLUE BOOKS cafe in Aoi Ku, Shizuoka City!

The kitchen!

Actually, I had planned only a light snack that day, that is before I saw the menu!

I soon realized it was a lost cause when I saw “”Sandwich in Pate de Champagne”!
Being French, I knew they meant “Terrine de Campagne Sandwich”!
Just reading this reminded me of the many such sandwiches back home!

For a closer look!

SN3O5035

Enormous sandwich!
I knew I had to use fork, knife and all the fingers of both hands!

SN3O5039

A very generous portion of terrine!
Note that the bread was lightly seasoned and toasted, although a bit soft by French standards, but making it easier to eat!

SN3O5037

The bread!
Actually I ate the bread separately in between mouthful of vegetables and terrine!

SN3O5036

Plenty of lettuce, sliced onions and pickles!

SN3O5038

From another angle to show you the good balance, both in design and ingredients!

SN3O5034

And of course plenty of French (Belgian) fries!

SN3O5032

Always a local vegetable salad included!

SN3O5031

And plenty of tea to wash it down!

What is it to be next, I wonder?
