My last meal in Lyon was in this quaint little restaurant along Rue Victor Hugo – Brasserie Le 1900. It wasn’t chosen out of anything extraordinary, I’ve decided to eat there as it was the first decent-looking restaurant that I could find from my hotel and it had a very nice outdoor area with a view of the small park across from it.
I sat on one of their outdoor dining tables and asked the waiter what’s their special for the day, he then gave me a list and explained each meals to me in detail. When he mentioned pork in one of their specials, I told him that that’s what I’m going to have regardless of how it’s cooked or what it comes with. It was my last meal in Lyon, in France, in Europe. Then I will soon land in Dubai where pork is a rare (very expensive) meal. 🙂
The restaurant was busy as it was a lunch time when I went there. Everyone’s enjoying the glorious weather that day and I love how very relaxed the ambiance was. Almost all of the tables were occupied and I was somehow amazed by how quick the service was. In no time, the dish below was served on my table by the very friendly waiter:
It was great! I’m not really sure if I just don’t have much options when it comes to pork dishes in Dubai but the way they cooked the meat in this dish was just different for my taste. The Lyonnaise potatoes I think is now my favorite kind of potato dish. I first had this dish in Le Petit Glouton which is another restaurant in Lyon. It’s basically baked potato with a very creamy, tasty and heavy sauce on top of it. It tasted so sinful and yet oh so good. I’d go back to Lyon just for this dish alone.
I went back to my hotel to grab my suitcase after the meal then walked towards Perache station to catch my train going to Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris. This was the last photo I took of Lyon, the Perache station.
Oh I will miss you Lyon! xxx
