Hearty French lunch attract ladies who eat much !
I heard that there’s a French foods restaurant that serves hearty meal at lunchtime, especially meat and I wanted to go there for a long time.
Finally, I could go there.
The restaurant is small and we have to reserve in advance even at lunchtime.
La Porte Rouge
Red and white. So cute 🙂
This restaurant accepted guests only two times. 11:30 and 13:30.
We got to there around 1:20 p.m, anyway, we waited in front of the restaurant.
Around 1:25 p.m., much people was gathering in front of the restaurant. Almost all guests were ladies.
There’s so famous ramen shop that is named “Kisso” next to the restaurant. Much people were waiting in front of Kisso that day, too.
People waiting in front of Kisso saw us in wonder.
And we saw them and said “Kisso have much guests today, too !!”
They serve only one lunch set for 1620 yen at lunchtime.
We choice one appetizer, one main course, one dessert and one drink from some foods.
We were two, so we decided to order different foods each other and share.
At first, Appetizer.
Meat terrine and chickens liver putty (自家製！お肉のテリーヌと鶏レバーのパテ)
The putty was smooth and tasty. And lots of vegetables on it. I felt I was going to be full in my stomach only this food … 🙁
Quiche lorraine, French style omelet (キッシュロレーヌ フランス風オムレツ)
It was so soft and like cake 😉
Also the bread was served.
It was hard, and I felt uneasy that I was going to be completely full in my stomach, so I didn’t eat bread so much.
And then, entree was served.
Duck’s leg meat confit (鴨足のコンフィ) (+300 yen)
Wooow !! meat under the meat !! long sausage ! Nevertheless just the duck’s leg was enough big !!! A whole potato was there, too !
The confit was salty and it was hard to eat up if I ate it by myself.
Stewed beef rib with red wine (牛バラ肉の赤ワイン煮込み) (+300 yen)
It had strong color, but it was quite lightly seasoned compared with the confit.
Snowy mountain behind the meat …. that is mashed potato !!!
Tarte au fromage (しっとりチーズケーキ)
It looks heavy, and actually it was heavy…. though it was tasty. It was too big for us after eating entree.
Though I ordered my drink mint tea, but somehow rose hips tea was served by mistake.
Well, to tell the truth, the waitress mistook my appetizer, too. I asked the waitress to change my appetizer.
I was over full and I couldn’t think well. So, it was troublesome for me. I didn’t say anything and I drunk it up.
As a whole, those were great in quantity.
And those were well seasoned, but the quality of meats were not good and the good skill of cook made those meats much better.
It was tasty, so I enjoyed eating while my stomach wasn’t full. But when I felt near full in my stomach, I was irritate the quality of the meats a bit.
They serves hearty meal with inexpensive costs, so it was not good for me who is poor eater.
Well, I left much meat in Hawaii, too. (The guests around us ate up their dishes easily and I felt I’m poor eater….)
I want to eat better quality and smaller quantity meats.
