Oh lala! C’est tres joli!
Oh yeah i would know that cos i’m a local here *moves eyebrows*
All over Europe in summer you can spot a dandelion along the roads, paths, streets and when you do…you cant help but to pluck them up and send them away in the wind! Not only are the dandelions way bigger (some to the size of a baseball, i kid you not) they just make me feel like a kid blowing off the candles on their birthday, Happy!!
Many a time, many picture attempts to take me blowing a dandelions have never quite turn out successfully the way i wanted them but i still use it anyway!
This is what they call a Mariee (not sure if i spelt it right) which really means the mayor’s house/office or acting governor office. It kinda looks like a mini palace on its own…cute.
So one of the days i was in Montreuil-Juigné, I tried a nice french restaurant that was recommended by the family there…i suppose its my first time trying authentic fine dining french cuisine 🙂
The appetizer was some rabbit meat in a jelly square and served with Foie gras, incidentally its m first time eating foie gras and its really delicious!! until i learnt how they were tortured to make it…not sure if i’d eat it again
The duck was lightly seared so tender and flavorful, different from the way we eat duck typically in asia (peking duck) and yes i’ve learn to enjoy meat rare-er (not sure if there is an actual word for that) since my time in Europe.
I dont know how much the mean cost but i think it was about $30 euros. Rather affordable, great food and service… yums..i miss that place.
