Besides yesterday’s post on La Sirène (number 1 post of the week on #FrenchRestaurant) and this one below (number 2), I have a couple more French restaurant posts lined up for this week. Stay tuned. 🙂
I have been to Les Halles many times but have never had their brunch special. Les Halles offers consistent quality #FrenchBistro style food and great French press coffee. The restaurant is always crowded and somewhat loud. This time is no exception.
Good French baguette and butter. French press coffee. Bloody Mary. This is a great way to start any meal or morning. Sometimes I wish I were more French. I loved the country living in France – the first thing to do in the morning is to head to the bakery to get a loaf of baguette; break it down and eat it with butter for breakfast. Or get a flaky croissant and dip it in a cup of dark-roast coffee. Mmm. I love this kind of breakfast.
Eggs Boudin Noir: Poached egg with blood sausage and red wine-shallots sauce. This was fine. The blood sausage broke apart very easily. Did not quite get the taste for it unfortunately but my friend appeared to be satisfied with the dish.
Overall, the brunch was fine and decent. However, my experience at Les Halles were better when I ordered Escargots, Terrine Maison, Steak Frites, Onglet à l’Échalote, or Moules Marinière ou Portugaise.
