Le Galopin – Rennes, France – Good for a short break in the city

If you are going to Mont-Saint-Michel from Paris, you will probably need to transfer in Rennes. There is a nice french restaurant there, also nice for business meetings. It is just located steps from the rail station, and I think it is a good value.

One of the classic meat based dish from their menu is the Calf’s brain. So it a good occasion for me to taste this part of the animal. The meat comes with a special sauce made with Dijon Mustard, helping you forgetting the strong meat taste.

Le Bouchon Et L’Assiette – Paris, FRANCE – Rich cuisine

Nice find, this Basque restaurant is a gem, I really felt like i as in southwest of France.

The Main Dining Room

The Main Dining Room

Basque specialties are well done here, really, I cannot name any wrong detail here. Maybe the waiting time ? But for me since I come for fresh and house made food, I won’t really care. The menu is simple but rotates frequently, and the cooks only use seasonal products. I ordered an appetizer and a main dish from the three or four offered daily.

Appetizer: Herring fillets seasoned and served with butter;

Main dish: Fabulous Veal Brisked and sliced veggies. Continue reading

On a discrete street, this pastry shop with large windows, the place is inviting you to enter and discover their wonders artisanally made every day.

Fine pastries, well prepared. I have been to this place 5 times so far, never been disappointed about what i ordered. I love the chocolate used. Those pieces of sweet are nicely displayed, how to resist to the temptation ? Even the price is “okay”: from 1 to 6 euros. Continue reading

I’ve also been to Coutume Café for their brunch, which costs between 25 and 30 euros. I was seduced by the Detox Veggie Brunch, I really felt tired that day!

It is good to discover new drinks, “Le Cherbet” was totally unknown to me. It is in fact a lemon squash drink mix mixed with milk. Really efficient to make me feel more awake.

The weekend brunch is freshly made by order, despite the food looked so beautiful, colorful and appetizing….. I wasn’t delighted by the food. My mouth didn’t got the same appealing. Veggies are fresh, and well-selected.

Eggs & Co – Paris, FRANCE – Brunch every day !

Salmon Muffins

So far, the only place I know in Paris where you can brunch every day of every week!

The place is cool and the staff is fun. I think this place is really nice for sharing with a group of friends. But if you plan to come with them, book a table in advance for the weekend!

The dining rooms are small, same for the kitchen which I doubt the size is bigger than 20 square feet….!

Sincerely, I am not a fan. In fact their brunch is the only menu item. The restaurant specialize in eggs. They cook eggs any style you want.

I ordered the smoked salmon brunch and it is no surprise than eggs are perfectly cooked. The only thing about the food i can say is that the salmon was too salty.
