Yeah, London was warm too - t-shirt weather (wanted to make the most of it)...but apparently it will be rainy and colder from tomorrow.Tonight me and Doris ate out ,.We are in Amboise , france, and had a meal on the outside of a restaurant called "la Reserve"
we had the set menu , 18€ each plus the wine, which was lovely,
I started with pate of chicken liver she had what looked one the same thing , but made with fish
we both had tenderloin of pork and frites( and what superb frites they were, not tasted the likes since the late 60s just before I joined up...cooked I believe in real grease, probably goose fat, seriously, they were excellent)
And floating islands for pudd
Worth every penny. If there was one thing wrong, the table was not even and the cutlery slid, we could have sat inside , on the level, but it was still 27°C at 8pm...inside was like an oven
Should've asked for Royale with cheese...I had to have a maccy ds double quarter pounder with cheese before they stop doing them on Tuesday.
Only thing is I paid forty pence to add bacon and when I got it home and opened it there was no bacon.
Not impressed to be honest.
It is - had to pop into Canary Wharf for a meeting and on the way back got hit by hail - so nipped for some food and shelter.Don't know but it's on a Wetherspoons plate
