Special Saturday

My mum wanted me to get a special hairstyle done at her hairdresser's. As my hair is very straight by nature, I asked for big hair and that's what I got. I realise that from behind my hair is not as blond as I thought it was... It's like auburn or what? 

I didn't see the point of getting the hair done and then go home, put on a tracksuit and lie on the couch. So I suggested that we go out for dinner. 

My parents had never been to Le Sud but knowing them, I knew that they would like it. We had an apéritif at the bar first where we were served hors-d'oeuvres. I only had the soup because I don't eat duck or foie gras. 

We moved downstairs to the restaurant. My parents were interested in the menu de dégustation, which contained a few meat dishes. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that the chef could adapt it for me and serve a pescetarian version. 

Escargots (snails) for my parents. 

Truffles on toast for me. 

Mushroom and truffles cappuccino. 

After the hors-d'oeuvres came the starters: Le bar de ligne, émulsion de topinambours

My second starter was turbot. 

My parents both ate pork and foie gras? Well, it looks like it. 

This was the third starter: noix de Saint Jacques (scallop) with olives and pine nuts. 

My mum and I had the sole petit bateau as a main course...

... while my dad had ordered the pigeonneau en croûte farci au chou, foie gras et truffes (pigeon stuffed with cabbage, foie gras and truffles)... 

... accompanied by mashed potatoes. 

Dessert was a never-ending story! First of all we skipped the cheese tray because we were so full. We went straight to the sweet stuff by having a soft creamy caramel cake...

... strawberry sorbet... 

... and they served us two of these plates with mini opera, macarons and cake. 

My mum and I finished the dinner with a glass of rosé champagne and toasted to the International Women's Day. 

I was really happy that my parents had a good time. As I said in other posts, they are total food snobs and I don't know anyone else who is this picky about what they eat. I once took them to a hamburger place that they absolutely disliked and they still remember it today.

PS: I absolutely don't like foie gras and I really hope that its production will be banned internationally in the near future. 


  1. Wow the food looks amazing. You always take amazing pictures.

  2. Your hair is stunning!

  3. I don't fancy foie gras either... However, your hair looks lovely! It is quite red-ish, as you said, more like an auburn. And by the way, I'm loving your black dress.
    About the food, it looks amazing. Those desserts look absolutely delicious! xx

  4. Happy Women's Day! You look great and I love your hair colour! The food looks really nice. Glad you had a good time and that your parents liked the food!

  5. Your hair looks so pretty and the food in this restaurant looks so good and exquisite. Also I have the same opinion about foie gras! I mean it's just so unnecessary and cruel how they produce it and I think it tastes awful... How can anyone like it? I mean just because it is known as a delicacy?!

  6. Your hair loooks very glamorous and what a lovely restaurant. Some delicious looking dishes and all beautifully presented. Opera is a favourite of mine and macarons of course, so this dessert would have been perfect for me!

  7. Hi Anouka, love your hair in this way, it suits you! Looking enchanting in the third pic! Seems you had a nice time with your parents, I imagine how much you were full then!:) I dont like foie gras too and dont get why people need to eat it. Have a nice evening xo

  8. This looks so delicious :)
    It's nico to hear that you had a great time :)
