GreenHill Fish Bar, a Fish & Chips in Shakespeare’s birthplace

31 May

When I went to Stratford-Upon-Avon (which is a wonderful small city, with a great atmosphere coming from the streets and loads of shops, cafés, restaurants you want to get in), I decided to try a Fish & Chips, just to be in a full British mood.

Hello everyone!

Just a small post to say that I have booked a weekend in Bangkok from August, 3rd to 5th.

Tonight or tomorrow (depending on where you are around the globe), I will post something about a great Fish & Chips in Stratford-Upon-Avon, the birth city of Shakespeare.

See you soon !

Le Jardin, French restaurant in Saigon

21 May

Today I will speak about Le Jardin, a French restaurant in the Q1 of Saigon.

Me and my friends were missing French food, so we decided to try this restaurant, where a lot of expats are used to go.

It is located in the gardens of the French cultural centre: IDECAF, on Thai Van Lung (31).

In this restaurant, you have a large range of choice: you can take a meat or fish in a specific way (like magret de canard with mango) and choose the side with it (mashed potatoes, salad, fried potatoes…), or you can also choose a specific type of meat (example: beef tournedos) and then choose the sauce (pepper, tartare…) and the side.

So I decided to take a classic Beef tartare (this time, not the sauce but tartare is the raw minced beef meat prepared with capers, worcestershire sauce, oignons, pickles, an egg yolk, mustard, tabasco, parsley)  with mashed potatoes.

Vietnamese snacks: dâu tây

16 May

Those candies are some kind of fruit confits (candied fruits) from Vietnam.

Here it is strawberry.

Due to the climate, strawberries can only be seen in a few places in Vietnam, for instance: Da Lat. Those candied fruits are a specialty from Da Lat and Vietnamese people are always asking their friends, colleagues or family to bring them some from their trips there.

Bale Well

13 May

Last week it was national holidays in Vietnam (April, 30th and May, 1st are day off), so we took another day off on Friday to go to the centre of Vietnam: Hue, Da Nang and Hoi An.
In Hoi An, we decided to have dinner in a restaurant indicated by my French touristic guide (Le Routard): Bale Well.
They were saying that it was a no-menu restaurant where everyone ate the same thing, and the restaurant specialised in Hue’s food (Hue used to be the capital city of the last emperors).
