Yesterday we went to L’auberge Chez Francois to have lunch as to say goodbye to my Dad who left on this morning.
It’s a traditional french cuisine restaurant with nice ambiance, good service and delicious food. Star found it and I must say he was a great find.
while we go through the extensive menu, warm onion baguette and bread were served
We decided to try the lunch menu that they offer, starting with a pre-appetizer: mini quiche
as appetizer mom chose: Fresh mussels with garlic butter as in Provence
dad and Star both opted for the lobster bisque
I had A crêpe with chives, stuffed with a duxelle of mushrooms, tomato concassé, Madeira sauce
after appetizer, house salad for everyone
as entree: mom had Pinot Noir boneless braised beef short ribs with seasonal vegetables
I helped her with one piece, it was scrumptious!!!!! I don’t usually like beef, but I do like this kind, A LOT!
Dad had Fresh trout sautéed with seasonal vegetables and toasted almonds
Star tried the Fresh calf’s liver sautéed with bacon, caramelized onions and vegetables
and I picked Beef Bourguignon, spaëtzles and seasonal vegetables
I had a little over half of the portion, which is a lot of meat! It was so good that I’m now determined to find a recipe for this and recreate it at home!!!!
As dessert, mom had plum tart with cinnamon ice cream
Dad’s: assorted house ice cream and sorbet in tulip
Star had cheesecake
and I picked grandma’s bread pudding
Overall, we’re really impressed by the cuisine, specially that crepe dish and meat dishes! We’re definitely going back for more!!!
my lovely parents who has been here helping me out with the house work and cooking for the last 3 months. I’m glad that mom is staying for two more months!
the decor of this place is very hommy!
Q: What’s your favorite french dish? Mine is definitely the meat dishes!
