French Bistro Gastronomy: Terrines, Savouries and Cakes at Patina in Shizuoka City!

Service: Very friendly and smiling
Facilities: Very clean. Beautiful washroom.
Prices: Reasonable
Strong points: A true cafe where to relax and enjoy a good light meal any time of the day. Interesting reasonable wine and cider list.

Due to various reports, meetings and what else, I visited Patina no less than three times within a single week!
This has become an opportunity to show you what to expect in our good city of Shizuoka City!

The entrance by a very shiny day!
It is large by Shizuoka standards!

they have been actively specializing in terrines and pates recently! The real French comfort food!

They have also increased the number of wines you can drink by the glass!

You must try the Cremant de Bourgogne, so much better than Champagne, yen for yen!

Vegetable terrine and herb cream dressing!

Just love the bacon included with it!

Delicious and elegant herb cream dressing!

And plenty of leaf vegetables for great balance!

Zuwagani/Snow crab terrine!

So fine and light!

Sanma/Pacific saury and potato terrine!

The fish and the potatoes married to perfection!

At Patina they serve French cider in a bowl as it should be!

Marinated mackerel salad!

Another comfort (Norway?) food so nicely presented!

Pork and chicken liver terrine de campagne!
As yummy as back home in Bourgogne, France!

No need of bread! Just fork it together with leafy vegetables!

Quiche Lorraine!

I doubt they make it so elegant even in France!

Their cakes are always tempting!

If you ca read Japanese it says “Figs and Cheese Cream Baked Tart”!

A little beauty!

The tart!

And the home-made ice cram with the custard and caramel sauces!
Another sin! LOL

Far Breton, the elegant way!

Now, what would be bast with it, a strong coffee or glass of Calavados? LOL

To be continued… You bet!

  1. The terrines look fabulous and so inventive! (Especially the potato and fish one… it gives me some ideas… I must write them down, otherwise I will forget). Guess what I am baking today? Far breton! (I have decided 10 seconds ago seeing your photos). Mine is always with prunes though (I love prunes and of course far breton).
    By the way, I have forgotten to tell you that the wasabi I brought home did come from Shizuoka! (I have compared kanji)


      1. By the way, have you seen my attempt to reproduce the skewers I had in Japan? (It was still with my real wasabi… and with myoga I had a chance to find in my Japanese grocery shop The photo is not great, but the taste was unforgettable (although not as good as in Japan of course!)
        PS How long did it take you to learn to write Shizuoka in Kanji 😉 ? It doesn’t look easy…


      2. Dear Sissi!
        Sorry for the delay!
        I visited your blog!
        Extravagant Myoga! Well done!
        Shizuoka kanji? Well it took me only a day as I was living there from the very first day!
