L’Huitrade Oyster Bar Own by Guy Savoy, Paris

Love Affair with Food, Yummy Europe

L’Huitrade is the new Oyster bar by the famous Arc de Triomphe in Paris.

It is own by the famous Michelin 3 stars chef Guy Savoy.

I read no country in the world can offer a more complete oyster experience than France…

So…we must eat Oyater when we are in France hahaa  

We booked a lunch reservation…



Nice warm and chic decor in this small bar, it fits about 12 guests.  Love the oyster motif tiles on the floor.

Good touch of messages in the bottles…simple but unique display.

Menu is only in French, but the server speaks perfect English…

Menu on the left are by different kinds of oyster x 8

She was nice enough to allow us to order two kinds of oyster x 4 

On the right are mostly oyster dishes required preparation.


We ordered the oyster 3 ways, it included the famous dish (on the right) from Guy’s Michelin 3 Stars restaurant.  The oyster made with special oyster creme and clear jelly, very yummy and creamy..


Our two kinds of oysters arrived…

Unlike the way we eat oysters in North America, we eat them straight…without adding anything to enhance the taste….

The oysters are so rich in flavor, I think adding anything to it will waste the oyster.

We also ordered two special oysters that are not on the menu…

The server let us pick from the box of speciality oysters…


They are huge…I love the one of the left more, it is much more creamier and meaty.


We both really enjoyed the oysters, the quality is definitely better than what we have tried in North America.  I really miss eating Oysters in France…

Au-Petit-Sud-Ouest, Foie Gras Restaurant in Paris

Love Affair with Food, Yummy Europe

When we were in Paris, we tried to eat Foie Gras whenever we can…

I discovered this restaurant by googling the best foie gras restaurant in Paris…

This place is like a foie gras heaven for me 🙂

The front of the restaurant sales foie gras in cans or jars….


First page dedicated to foie gras….mostly duck foie gras on the menu…


Love the two cute ducks…


Cute ducks on the wine glass 🙂


Each table has its own toaster, because the cold foie gras terrine tasted better with freshly toasted bread.

For our appetizer we ordered foie gras 3 ways (fresh, half cooked and pan fried).

The fresh and half cooked foie gras taste so soft and creamy.


The pan fried foie gras are huge.  They are like a size of a fish and chips dish…

Soooooooooooooo yummy!!!

For main courses, we ordered duck breast, goose leg confit (love the fried skin), and smoked duck salad..

Amazing food, the best duck breast I ever had…

This restaurant is amazing…

Of course we got foie gras in cans to go…..:)

Holts Cafe, Toronto

Love Affair with Food, Yummy North America

Single shopping night…

I love shopping by myself…because I know exactly what I want…no time wasted on waiting for friends to decide on “to buy or not to buy” :p

I was so tired after just two hours of intense shopping…lol

I decided to grab a bit at Holts Cafe…

I ordered the organic juice, Holt Happiness, it was very refreshing…  


I love truffle and chips…so I ordered the truffle chips to start…

I think they just drizzled the trffule oil on the chips…I can so do that at home .. Hahaaaa 

I found the chips little greasy…but I love the smell of the truffle oil, so I finished the entire bowl 🙂


For the main, I ordered the potato crusted halibut, it was so good, the fish was cooked with the right texture and I love anything with a crust on it…..so I really like this dish…even the sautéed kale was tasty.


I was too full after the main…sadly…I had to say no to the dessert menu 😦

Another satisfy meal…actually it was my first time eating dinner in a restaurant by myself…I was texting my girl friend the whole time, so I didn’t feel  lonely at all…
