Dinner this Friday Oct 16th, 5:30PM
Started off with an appetizer of crab. This starter consisted of crab meat sandwiched between two very tasty buttery slices of "dodu du fromentier"'s bread: the crab meat was amazingly fresh (as if it came right from the sea), tender, nicely seasoned, flavorful and very tasty. It was served along fresh mesclun baby leaves that were ideally crunchy on top of complementing perfectly well with the crab meat. Delicious!
I took a 2nd app: The blood sausage tart. It was surrounded by nice fresh green salad, topped by tasty crunchy slices of fresh green apples, a chunk of rich greasy beacon (I could leave without it..but it was irreproachably tasty). The two pieces of blood sausages were nicely concocted, had an awesome inside smoothness and was perfectly flavored. They were sitting on a flat savourish slightly enjoyable sweet biscuit topped by an intense rich and all flavorful oignon fondue. The biscuit was light, had an amazing buttery taste and was litteraly melting mouth crispy!A lot of great work here on this appetizer: various layers of tastes that paired so well between one another. Awesome!
Main course was the veal cheeks. The braised veal cheeks were sitting on top of a nice rich creamy delicious potato purée. The cheeks were undeniably very tender and packed with remarquable flavors. Nicely cooked and delectable mouthfeel on top of being perfectly well seasoned (not too salty, not too greasy, not lacking at all in terms of flavors). In the plate, there was a nice piece of beet (nicely crunchy, lightly sweet) with carrots. I am not a big fan of veal cheeks, but since this is one of their signature dishes, I had to try it and this was definitely lovely.
