After making our way down from Mont Blanc, we decided to stop for lunch somewhere close by. Our friend brought us to this little café-like restaurant in the Chamonix town. The weather was very nice and cooling, so, we opt to dine outside.
Here, they serve the local specialties like Raclettes, Fondues and Braserades. Since our friend made these for dinner last night at his place, we decided to skip ordering these and have something else.
He recommended that we try the frog legs. (Not sure if he was trying to shock us or not when he propose that…but, when we told him we eat frog legs quite often in Malaysia too, he was surprise. Hehehe…) The legs were served in creamy cheese-like sauce on rice. I like the sauce. But, don’t like it goes very well with the legs. (In my opinion, nothing beats steam frog legs in mince garlic ginger on soya sauce)
We also had charcuterie and grill steak. It’s not bad. Normal-I guess. But, the environment and comfort during dining is definitely great. Since it’s so close to the Mont Blanc, I suspect this café would be a frequent joint for many skiers during the winter seasons. And of course, dessert for me.
