Last Monday (I mean the 4th of July), we belatedly visited that favourite French restaurant of ours in Shizuoka City for the lunch out of the year.
I’ve already introduced that particular restaurant and his chef, Mr. Arima.
The prices are not only reasonable but the ingredients are simply extravagant.Moreover they are exclusively seasonal, be they from Shizuoka, Japan or abroad. A great emphasis is done on local bio bvegetables and one can expect a feast of colors!
Here what we enjoyed on tha particular day:
The Missus chose that beautiful plate of sauteed mushrooms topped with fresh truffles!
When I eat French food, I tend to a bit rustic. LOL.
Simple but elegant and perfect chicken liver terrine!
A beautiful kabocha cream for both of us before the main dish.
For once, we both opted for fish.
The Missus ordered sauteed “Sawara/Spanish Mackerel” with cassis sauce. Look at those veg!
As for me, I devoured “Inada or young buri/yellowtail” sauteed and served with a dijon mustard cream sauce. Look at those veg again!
And it was time for dessert:
The Missus delved into Panacotta and raspberry sorbet.
As for me, marrons and almonds tart with cassis sorbet.
Alright, alright, you want to know how much we paid for that?
30 US$ per person, bread, butter and coffee included.
We had 3 glasses of wine each. The total bill was 110 US$.
Worth it, wasn’t it?
