Lyon was around for many many years but I’m not sure why I never got around to trying it. Looking back at my food album I realised I didn’t blog about it when I went there last christmas which was also my first time trying out French cuisine.

Prior to the visit I had this perception of Lyon as a upscale – very expensive – restaurant ‘cos something about the word ‘French’ indirectly suggests so (is it just me?).

But it was to my surprise to find the place so cozy and comfortable. It was like having a home cooked meal in a very nice homely atmosphere.

I know there are many ‘unique’ and strange dishes in French cuisine but I decided to stay safe and go with my usual fish. Never knew almonds go so well together!

Oh this is Crepe Suzette, their signature dessert, in the making! I personally don’t like ice cream and desserts with anything orange or citrusy flavour but I had to try just to see them make it.

This is half of the portion. They won’t mind if you order one and just ask them to serve it in two.

Lyon is one of those rare places that are suitable for both very romantic dinners as well as family gatherings.

It was indeed a very pleasant dining experience – one that is satisfying without hurting your wallet too much! Staffs were very professional and attentive as well. I think I might be going back more often from now on.
