Eating out in France is miles better than in the UK because can take our dog. Except for stupid McDos of course who are rubbish.
If it's a small dog you can sneak them in or you can sit outside. Spotty gets tied up :lol:

I am a great fan of dogs in a French restaurant.

When you have ordered something you really don't want to eat, you give it to someone dog when no one is looking.

Then there is no embarrassment when the waiter collects your plate.

Hmmm...that was lovely.

L'addition SVP :lol:

Where to start.....

Soufflés - all puff and no substance
Pissaladière - mushy onion on mushy base with, granted, tasty anchovies +0.5
Cassoulet - beans with fat - can't believe it made the list!
Bouillabaisse - overcooked fish in dishwater
Brandade - beaten up fish pie (including lots of peasant filler)
Hollandaise sauce - not bad actually - I'll give you that one +1
Vichyssoise - yep - done properly it can be delicious but not a life saver +0.5
Lentils with salt pork - yep without the lentils +0.5
Flageolet - beyond words, lots of actions
Endives au beurre - the single most overrated leaf in the world +0.5 for the butter
Globe artichokes - mouth shredders
Potato (gratin) dauphinoise - another heavy peasant filler from the Tartiflette stable but pretty tasty +1

Total score 4.0 / 12 (must do better :D :D :D)

Will never forget our first meal with French family. We had just bought our house from them and they invited us to dinner. A huge bowl of pasta (no sauce), fried pork chops and salad (salad as in lettuce). That was it apart from the wine!

We frequent Spain in the Autumn and always find the supermarkets there have a much better selection of food and better prices.

Absolutely SP1DER! I'm a border raider and often pop over to stock up - a whole new, cheaper, world with amazing, international choice! :good:
