Tomate Et Chocolat, Nevers, France

We spent two nights in Nevers, France, before heading out to the countryside to spend two days driving around the Burgundy region. We chose to spend our last night back in Nevers as we wanted to catch an earlier train to Paris than we had originally planned. We chose a different hotel to where we had stayed the first time. And close to where we were staying was the very quaint looking Tomate Et Chocolat. The owner started off being quite abrupt but once we told him we were from South Africa he became quite pleasant. We chose the Domaine Dupré Bougogne 2008 wine which was very light and slightly acidic with cassis on the nose. Our amuse bouche were crispy toasted baguette with white sardines.

We both had the Moules de bouchet to start. The mussels came from Mont-St.-Michel which we have visited and they were fantastic. I had a very tasty steak done blue for my main course which was served with a vin rouge, and brilliant vegetables. Dave had the same vegetables with his fish main course which was served with a pesto de sésame. I am going to try and make this at home.

Dessert was listed on the menu as le cheesecake au citron vert and both Dave and I commented that they did not use the French for cheesecake. It was very smooth and full of lemon. Dave had the carpacio d’orange which was served with a very minty glace. Dave had an espresso to end which was served with biscuits.

    1. Mussels for breakfast sound like an interesting idea, but I think dessert would be better 😉

    1. Dave always has an espresso but sadly for me, that would mean a night of no sleep.
