Banana souffle, fresh strawberries, and rich vanilla ice cream.
This is the only Michelin restaurant at Sarlat-la-Caneda.
It is across from SNCF, the train station in the outskirt of the town.
It is the first Michelin restaurant that we went to on this trip.
Salmon sashimi with spinach on top and basmati rice ice cream.
Basmati rice ice cream is actually quite good. You can taste the
unique flavor of Indian Basmati rice.
Not surprisingly, there is a Japanese chef in the kitchen.
You can tell by the Asian influence. I found out about this by
accident. I handed the French and Chinese translation of
food allergy list to the hostess. She thought it is written in Japanese.
She told me that they have a Japanese chef who probably can read this.
Well she not only took my original and made a copy of it to post in the kitchen to
make sure that my daughter’s food contain no item that she
would be allergic to. I called that “full" attention.
Chicken rolls with beet sauce.
It was declicious. The French know how to cook their chicken.
I can tell it was a free-range chicken by the texture.
Steak with carrot and spinach puree. I think they had
overdone the foamed puree. It is a little bit out of proportion.
Fish on top of zuchinni with carrot puree.
Same as this foamed puree, a little bit too much.
On the way to Le Pont de L’Ouysee. We saw Geese at a foie
gras farm. This restaurant is about 40-minute drive from
Sarlat-la-Caneda. The drive was lovely and rural.
A castle on top of a hill next to Le Pont de l’Ouysee
restaurant. How I wish I were the owner of this castle. It sits
on a cliff by the river. The view is spectacular.
Part of the garden at Le Pont de L’Ouysee restaurant.
We ate under these walnut trees with chef’s dog resting
underneath our table. It is so quiet and peaceful. The
restaurant is in the middle of nowhere. Yet it is a Michelin
one-star restaurant. We are used to this because we have
been to so many Michelin restaurants in the same kind of
environment. You always wonder if you are driving at the
right direction or not.
Fish fillet on top of a hearty tomato sauce.
My family loves this dish. My daughter kept talking about it
when we came back. It may look simple but the tomato sauce
was done right and the fish was cooked just right. It was a
spicy tomato sauce that my family always loves. They love
tomato sauce more than buttery or cream sauce.
The dessert was an apple pie that was cooked to perfection.
My family objected my photo-taking because they wanted
to eat first. We ate it so fast that I forgot to take a photo.
