Restaurant: Morbihan et Finistére!

Back to my new regular line of Restaurant post on my family travels around the world. This time is very close to home combining the same restaurant in my dept 56 of Morbihan and the neighboring dept 29 of Finistére in lovely Brittany.

First, we stumbled upon the Au Bureau restaurant while in our walking tours of Brest and it became our favorite to my dear late wife Martine for it fondue camembert dish and the ice cream of nine scoops! However, on subsequent visit we found out it had closed and they had the new restaurant call Au Pub! Needless to say they could not do the fondue camembert dish anymore but did for us the nine scoops of ice cream!

It is at same location Restaurant Au Pub ,10 Rue de Siam,Brest.

Brest

Brest

This brasserie-restaurant is also a bar whose menu of cocktails, beers and whiskeys is ideal to have a good time. Located at the bottom of the Rue de Siam , this friendly restaurant welcomes you for a well-deserved lunch break or a casual dinner with friends. Hearty dishes will be served in the dining room or on the terrace, and you can enjoy the festive atmosphere of this great  pub summer and winter. Indeed worth the stop even with the new name.

They have a page in Facebook here: Facebook page of Resto Au Pub Brest

However, in our road warrior trips in our beloved Morbihan , we end up seeking food for our dog Rex at Maxi Zoo in the town of Séné. And behold, they had just open an Au Bureau there!!! Surprise, well we went in right away. And have come back ever since !!!

The Au Bureau is at 69 Route de Nantes in Séné.

Ending up in this restaurant mixing bar pub brewery atmosphere with screens everywhere after coming to get my dog Rex food in same shopping center!. And now we have the Au Bureau not far from us again!  Meals correct beautiful atmosphere value for money means a little expensive for a menu carte that remains unsurprising. Very good meal and  impeccable team of the restaurant. Thank you to them for the pleasure of coming back again a few more times. A  pub-restaurant where the pleasure is in the plate, but also in the room with its 5 giant screens for sports and various activities offered throughout the year. The place is festive, for all ages …The franchise is own by the former general Manager of the FC Lorient football/soccer team now in the French 2nd Division.

Their official page is here (they refer as Vannes because capital and bigger town but it is in the town of Séné ok) : Official Au Bureau at Séné

And there is the story, what started as one end up being two places to enjoy a good meal with great drinks and wonderful views. The ambiance is guarantee. Enjoy the new Au Pub and the old/new Au Bureau!

Restaurant: Segovia!

Here we go again ,this time is sublime Segovia, Castilla y Léon, of Spain! I have come here since a child first with my mom and later with my wife and boys always wonderful to walk its streets and see the gorgeous sights. We will be back for sure.

For now , let me tell you about a memorable stop I did with my dear late wife Martine and the boys at La Oja Blanca, Plaza Mayor 7, Segovia; tel +34 921 46 08 94. No web.

segovia

We walk a lot here even on its steep cobblestone streets, and as hunger strikes we end up either by the Aqueduct or the Plaza Mayor. The one we enjoy for the service, food, prices, and wonderful view of the square was this one.

Let me tell you a bit more on the La Oja Blanca of Segovia.

Small place in the Plaza Mayor for the morning tapas, coffees or afternoon infusions or drinks from the first hour of the night. The music goes according to the time of day, in such a way that you can hear from Tchaikovsvy to La Polla Records. Occasionally they organize painting and photography exhibitions. Good terrace for the hot months, with great views of the music kiosk.

We had of course our bathful of Mahou beers (of Madrid) , codfish croquettes, chorizo a la cazuela, hot dogs! and omelettes all for about 8€ per person. The services were very generous,  fast and courteous. Good for a beer and a snack. Prices were reasonable and tapas. If you expect cold beer and reasonable prices you will not be disappointed.

Segovia

The good sign is that it has no official webpage simply very local for more than 30 years there. We really enjoyed it and hopefully you will too once stop by in Segovia. The name is La Oja Blanca or the white stream as there was a water source there in ancient times.

And remember, happy travels, good health, and many cheers to all!!!

Restaurant: San Lorenzo de El Escorial!

Ok so one more in my quest to left an imprint of my rounds in restaurants with the family in Europe and elsewhere. I am taking now to a wonder of our world that must be seen and do walk the town too, it is wonderful. I am taking you to San Lorenzo de El Escorial in the Comunidad de Madrid of my beloved Spain.

While gazing at its marvel Royal Monastery  and walking its historic streets one has to be hungry. We have come here since 1990 with my dear late wife Martine. IN fact, while there with her car we had a flat tire and needed to call for a local garage to come and take the car to fix the tire very nicely and quick. We love to come here ever since!

As to eating well true to making a one day trip from Madrid our numbers of places are not much but one memorable one is the Meson 5 Bellotas, Calle de La Reina Victoria 10, San Lorenzo de El Escorial.  Facing Plaza de la Cruz. No web just their Facebook page here: Facebook page of Meson 5 Bellotas

San Lorenzo de El Escorial

We are lucky to have known  Mesón 5 Bellotas because each time we are very nicely welcome and always a good quality/price ratio.  The management/owner is very nice too. You can always taste delicious tapas that are the specialty here as well as known for its cold beer!

We come for lunch , and tapas galore we have bits and pieces of different ones including the famous grilled toast with all kinds of goodies on top your selection as well as theirs. The views over the square is nice and lots of people seeing going on! This is the Plaza de la Cruz. 

San Lorenzo de El Escorial

You do well to stop by and try the Méson 5 Bellotas at San Lorenzo de El Escorial, not far from the monastery main entrance.

And remember, happy travels, good health, and many cheers to all!!!

Restaurant: Alcalà de Henares!

So back at you with another dandy in my beloved Spain. In continuing with my series on restaurants visited with the family and with photos I take you now to a great memorable find in the Comunidad de Madrid.

While visiting the wonderful Alcalà de Henares we stumble on this nice place right in front of the Cathedral! with a funny name La Gitana Loca or the crazy female gypsy and it caught our attention to go in. It was a very nice encounter with cheap tapas and beers which we have repeated going there.

Alcala de Henares

The prices were one euro for the tapas and we had it going to as much as 70 cents the euro for the glass of beer known as the cana! Enough simple thing to do with a family. It is located at Plaza Santos Ninos 4 directly across from the main entrance to the Cathedral.

Alcala de Henares

A bit of my impression on it.

The truth is that the site does not deceive;  cheap food and drink. The place is normal to go for tapas, the interesting thing is the place where I find it, at the foot of the Cathedral by its main entrance for an excellent location. Bustling site for cheap glass of beer or canas with friends. The atmosphere is for the young but for a family can have great combi tapas and beers and in summer the terrace is elbow to elbow full. The food is not very remarkable as tapas are simple but cheap as well. A good place to cool off, have a drink and admire the architecture of the magisterial Cathedral and its storks from the terrace and continue the path.

Alcala de Henares

An umpretentious place that look more like a bar than a restaurant but the service was very friendly and the food good and cheap, tapas for one euro and beer for 70 centimes attack attack!!!

The official webpage is on the franchise host and not enough info as well as in Spanish : Official La Gitana Loca

Yelp reviews on La Gitana Loca

There you go a wonderful tourist spot with still great Spanish prices. Enjoy your lunch at La Gitana Loca as we did.

And remember, happy travels, good health, and many cheers to all!!!

Port de Suffren and gourmet Paris!

So I am on the foodie mode again ,and getting some souvenirs of my vault to share here first time or expand on bits from previous posts in my blog. One of the best advantage of living in France is the gastronomy and wines etc are the best in the world. Yes often imitated but never surpass ,it was the first region by Unesco on World Heritage Immaterial mention on it.

Anyway , let me tell you about the Port de Suffren very near the Eiffel tower. And more importantly about an event that has mark my hunger and thirst ever since, the Saveurs et vins encounter at the Maxim’s peniche boat now Le Paris.

The port de Suffren at the Quai Branly off the pont Bir Hakeim bridge or just coming from the Eiffel tower and go down on your left to the Seine river. The name Suffren comes from 1905 that was the avenue found next to it . The port is about 600 meters long from the Pont d’Iéna to the Pont de Bir-Hakeim and is mostly filled with housing peniche boats.

paris

There are two other nice eating places here such as the Bar de la Marine, and the Peniche Cercle de la Mer. On the left side of Pont d’Iéna you have the Vedettes de Paris cruise boats and on the right side the Bateaux Parisiens cruise boats. And you should know this so won’t dwell on them.

Paris

The event that took me to find out about this area was the Saveurs et Vins or tastes and wines that was held back in 2008 at the Maxim’s peniche boat own by Pierre Cardin fame. The best houses came here for you to taste. The Maxim’s otherwise official page is here: Maxim’s de Paris

Paris

I was looking forward every year to the event. When I came to the Morbihan breton it was too far to go just for a day so instead had made friendship with many of the participants and contacted them to go direct to their place to taste and purchase. It has become a family tradition.

paris

The event at the  Maxim’s peniche or boat event call saveurs et vins or tastes and wines event on the Seine river  at the port de Suffren just down the left stairs from crossing the tour Eiffel. It goes on every year in March usually around the 18-20. More on it here: Official Saveurs et Vins at Suffren

You can reach in Paris by taking métro Bir Hakeim line 6 or RER C Champ de Mars/Tour Eiffel, you go down the stairs by the carrusel side with your back on the Tour Eiffel its your left, walk along the Seine river at the  Port de Suffren for about 100 meters and the boat peniche Maxim’s is there anchored.

Many wonderful independant producers come here, and the offering is the best in country France. Some of my favorites that still attend this event are

Chocolats de Beussent-Lachelle (pas de Calais  62 ,but 25 stores nationwide: Chocolats Beussent -Lachelle

Champagne Philippe Gonet (Le Mesnil-sur-Oger  51 ,south of Epernay): Champagne Philippe Gonet

Domaine Dutertre (Amboise-Touraine 37 near Amboise ) : Domaine Dutertre wines

Souleilles terre de foie gras , (north east of Agen 47 ): Souleilles foie gras from Agen

paris

Hope you like this gastronomic tour of some of the best of my belle France. You too can come and visit while in Paris and maybe you get hook on some of them as we did and have and still do! The properties above are visit at least once a year and or follow into other fairs like the one in my capital city of Vannes 56.

And remember, happy travels, good health, and many cheers to all!!!

Château de Tronjoly at Gourin!

And of course, a town with a castle is a must for us, so after reading about it, I found a collegue in town who is native of Gourin so he mentioned it again and it had an exposition. Therefore, off we went to see this castle of Tronjoly in Gourin.

gourin

I will cut it short on two posts. One to show you some pictures of the castle properties and other to show you the wonderful exposition there.ok bear with me please.

The Château of the Traon Joliff or the pretty valley or Tronjoly as it is known today is a nice construction of the 18C that we can still see the ruins of the 19C of the castle. On the western wall you see the date 1768 as well as on the west façade on a small niche that housed a clock with the inscription my bell sound at an exact hour. The first lords of the castle were the Kergoët living there from 1426 to 1660; follow by the L’Ollivier , de la Villeneuve Lochrist; which the Tronjoly branch shows its coat of arms as money in the face of blatter mouths , golden grilles accompany the a trio of cinquefoils of the blatter mouths or the meaning could be money in the face of envy. In 1796, Anne-Jacquette L’Ollivier, wife of Jean Baptiste Rouxel, lord of Lescoët, took advantage of the authorization granted to the families of the emigrants (those returning after the French revolution) to buy the lands seized and sold as national property (by the French revolution)  to buy the castle and its domain back and held it until 1900. It is a Rouxel de Lescoët who restores the eastern wing at the end of the 19C, following a fire. Hermine de Lescoët marries Baron Guy de Salvaing of Boissieu, who dies in 1954 and leaves the castle to his daughter Madeleine. The castle once had a private chapel, a park and a dovecote. The estate is bought by the town of Gourin in 1984.

gourin

Its park is now a place of walk for the local Gourinois and the castle houses exhibitions of art and crafts; the theater of greenery is used in the summer for various cultural events and festivals. To wander through the park, visitors can take the many lanes, bridges spanning picturesque streams and multiple trails. The wooded area of the park has majestic trees, many centuries old, whose name and geographical origin are reported.

Canal Saint Martin, Paris of course!

Ok so cannot be too far away from Paris so once in a while will pop in with something of my working city. Even thus my new duties will take me less coming to the city the memories will be memorable from wherever I will be… I like to touch on something that have come several times, and especially with the family for fun times along its banks. It’s just a break from my restaurant series!

Let me tell you a bit about the Canal Saint Martin! And to start let me tell you , recommend you , to take a cruise on Canauxrama on the canal sublime!  They propose several times and tours, the official webpage is here: Official Canauxrama cruises on the Canal Saint Martin

Paris

We went always early to walk its banks and basins and even the Rotunda, we park just south of the Bastille tower underground. Precisely 53 bd de la Bastille webpage here: Bastille Indigo parking underground

From here we simply walk all over and had an easy out as well. Once in the city walk all over with the convenient of entering or leaving at any time.  Going over the Arsenal and the Rotunda Ledoux or Point Ephémére or Rotunda Stalingrand ,and the basin de la Villette! You will love the walk along this wonderful canal St Martin! And now a bit more history info I like a lot!

paris

The creation of the Canal Saint-Martin is decided along with that of the Canals Saint-Denis and Ourcq. The construction of the canals was delayed by the situation in France between 1809 and 1815. Then king Louis XVIII re launched the project. Funding must be found: the prefect proposes to use private capital. In 1818, the Compagnie des Canals de Paris was created. It won the auction opened by the City of Paris in November 1821 for the construction of the Canal Saint-Martin in private concession, The prefect of the Seine laid the foundation first stone on May 3, 1822. The new canal was inaugurated by king Charles X on November 4, 1825.

paris

In 1860, Georges Eugene Haussmann, prefect of the Seine, included the Canal Saint-Martin in his plans to modernize and expand the city. The canal is then covered in part by vaults including Boulevard Richard-Lenoir. In 1908, the recovery was extended to create the current Bd Jules-Ferry. The Canal Saint-Martin is mainly used to transport passengers for tourist cruises and little for the transport of goods. It is open 363 days a year. Its banks are also popular with Parisians for strolling and even picnicking !

The Canal Saint-Martin is a 4.6 km long canal located mainly in the 10éme and 11éme arrondissements of Paris. It connects the Villette basin and beyond the Ourcq canal to the port of Arsenal (the marina of Paris) ; which communicates with the Seine river. It is a small-scale canal originally intended to provide drinking water in the capital. Opened in 1825, it has nine locks and two rotating bridges for a total drop of 25 meters. In the network of Parisian canals, 130 km long, which belongs to the City of Paris includes this canal. This canal along its extension is reach by the following Metro stations Bastille, Bréguet – Sabin, Richard-Lenoir, Oberkampf, République, Goncourt, Jacques Bonsergent, Gare de l’Est, Château-Landon, Colonel Fabien, Louis Blanc and Jaurès.

paris

The entrance to the canal consists of the double lock of the Villette located in the Place de la Bataille-de-Stalingrad, near the Rotunda Stalingrad. In its open-air section, it is bordered by the docks of Valmy and Jemmapes. The Louis Blanc basin is supported by a masonry bed that rests on stilts. When it was decided to bury the canal, the bed had to be lowered, the basement being of gypsum there. Pillars 16 meters deep had to be sunk, about every 10 meters. But the water has gradually dissolved in the ground and the canal now rests on a void.

 

The Canal Saint-Martin is then covered from Bd Jules-Ferry (Temple vault built in 1907). It then passes under the Bd Richard-Lenoir (Richard Lenoir vault built between 1860 and 1862), and finally under the Place de la Bastille (the Bastille vault made in 1862) to open onto the port of the Arsenal. The vaults Richard Lenoir and Temple are pierced with ventilation vents.They also allow the natural lighting of the tunnel.

Paris

The canal Saint Martin has several basins, these are the basin des Morts; Combat Basin; Louis Blanc Basin; Recollets basins; and the Marais Basin. They are separated by five locks, four of which are double such as La Villette lock (No. 1 and 2); Lock des Morts (No. 3 and 4); Recollets lock (No. 5 and 6); Temple Lock (No. 7 and 8); and the Arsenal Lock (No. 9). The crossing of the canal Saint Martin is made by two revolving bridges, two fixed bridges for cars and by pedestrian walkways: they are the footbridge of the locks of the Villette (passarelle) ; Rue Louis Blanc Bridge; Eugéne-Varlin Bridge; Bichat Bridge; Grange-aux-Belles turning bridge; Grange-aux-Belles bridge; Richerand Bridge; rue Dieu revolving bridge; Alibert bridge (passarelle) ; and the Passarelle des Douanes bridge (or pont des Douanes bridge 1860).

Restaurant: Trier!

Here we go again, another memorable simple new world spot we love anywhere. We have come to Trier several times over the years, becoming our favorite city in Germany. Even going overnight from our old home in Versailles.

We have come back and still the same from the Morbihan breton! Althought we have eaten at different places there the most memorable have been the Pizza Hut.!!!

Yes difficult for many to imagine our like for Pizza Hut, but we grew up with it in Florida USA where my boys were born, and was our favorite place to eat out when not doing something from my or mom’s roots. When we first came to Trier , we did as we always do, walk the beat and see as much as possible on foot. Passing by it we saw the Pizza Hut there and now each time we make an effort to eat there while in town.

Let me tell you a bit more on the Pizza Hut , at street  Brotstrasse 40, in Trier or Trèves (French).

Well I told you of our trek to Luxembourg just to have our all time favorite pepperoni lovers pizza at Pizza Hut from our home in Versailles. We continue the tradition there for many years and we pick up Trier in Germany as well!!! We go way back with Pizza Hut !

trier

Just during our last visit to Trier, we made a stop again at Pizza Hut and I must say that I was surprised by the quality of the welcome and the service. The meal was served quickly and warm. We see that the place is well maintained. Staff very pleasant and who speaks French!. Prices are for everyone ! We will be back!!!

Restaurant: Perth Amboy, NJ!

So let met take you way back in time to a period of renew hopes and challenges facing a new family arriving from Madrid in English speaking New Jersey USA!  Adaptation period, language, customs and then enjoyment! All positive experiences that enrich my intetelect and keep fond memories of the place.

I like to go back way back in time and take you to a place rich in US history as still keeps a copy of Liberty Bell and the bust of Gen George T Washington as well as the oldest in activity city hall in the USA! Yes many more monuments I have spoken before in my blog. However, today let me bring back my souvenirs of this entry city into the United States for me and my parents. Of course, the food is mistakingly think that is bad but America is a world melting pot and we have the very best from everywhere, this is the case of my beloved Perth Amboy, Middlesex County, New Jersey USA!

Let me tell you about my fav restaurants of my parents who took me there first and then me, of course so far back pictures are so much missed. Bear with me.

One old reliable that I even went after football./soccer matches was the Portuguese Manor,. This at the time was an almost daily routine; and keep coming back as late as 2007.  You will be in Portugal or Europe here ,great food. Lately the reviews have not been that great so check it out it is at 310 Elm St, halfway between Fayette st and Smith st, and walking distance from the train station direct to NYC.

Open since 1989, the Portuguese Manor  has a pleasantly old-fashioned atmosphere. The menu at this family-owned restaurant has changed little since it opened. Fortunately, the same goes for the budget-friendly prices. The menu offers a fine select of traditional Portuguese meat and seafood dishes, along with appetizers. Live bands and DJs are often featured on weekends. The webpage was not working lately so here is the Yelp reviews page.

Yelp reviews on the Portuguese Manor

The Armory is another jewel of historic significance as class reunions and graduation parties are held here, as well as a restaurant. We had held the 30th Class reunion in 2007 here but last minute cancellation took me elsewhere when I visit from France.

Official Armory restaurant

Located on Perth Amboy’s historic waterfront, at 200 Front St, the Seabra’s Armory specializes in Portuguese cuisine, as well as seafood and steaks. The restaurant is set in a renovated naval ammunition building dating back to WWI. Its elegant interior offers lovely views of Raritan Bay and Staten Island, NYC.

Yelp reviews on the Armory restaurant

Another old favorite is the The Barge, by the waterfront, just wonderful seafood while overlooking the Arthur Kill bay to New York City, its an institution in the city where my father took his business partners and us and eventually I came alone to meet his ours friends.  THE meeting point in the town.

Official The Barge restaurant

perth amboy

The Barge has been family-owned and operated since 1925. The restaurant overlooks the city’s historic waterfront, offering an intimate bar and dining area, as well as an upper floor dining room that can be rented for private parties. Live music performances often take place on the scenic outdoor patio during the warmer months. The restaurant offers a wide selection of meat and seafood entrées for dinner. There is also lighter fare such as sandwiches and wraps for lunch. Try one of the charcoal-grilled steaks or the broiled lobster, which is delivered fresh daily from Maine. The ultimate dining experience in Perth Amboy.

Yelp reviews on The Barge restaurant

One of our favorite things to do in Perth Amboy that has caught up with us wherever we are now, good and drinks is all part of a great visit anywhere. Hope you enjoy it and do come over when visiting the area, easy transport from New York City. 

And remember, happy travels, good health, and many cheers to all!!!
