Rouen – best address for foodies

Living here for almost 2 years now, I think I need to share you my favorite places to eat in Rouen, all the places mentioned below were tested personally:

Poppy’s Fish & Chips 21 Rue Cauchoise, 76000 Rouen

This takeaway restaurant just opened in 2017, and they serve authentic english fish & chips with mashy peas and tartare sauce. Apparently the owner had spent couple years in England and worked at the English pub, I think that’s the reason why they know how to cook a proper fish & chips. If you don’t really like fishes, they also have fried chicken & chips, and it tastes amazing.

Le Comptoir des Halles – Place du Vieux Marché, 76000 Rouen

This place is one of my favorite place to eat fresh oyster without going to a fancy restaurant. We also call the place “bar a huitres”, which literally means “oyster bar”. It is located inside the Vieux Marché, so it is very easy to find. I used to come here after rush hour, so the place was less busy and I can enjoy my oyster and a glass of white wine quitely.

Hot dog Corner Rouen – 8 rue Croix Verte, 76000 Rouen

Funny things, I found this hot dog shop by mistake when I was at Kebab shop nearby. My favorite menu is the classic American with mustard and fried shallots. What make the hot dog tastes amazing is because the owner makes the bun by herself. Not only the hot dog, you need to taste their milkshakes.  You can decide whether to eat your hot dog on the spot, in the restaurant, or take your menu home with you.

Ho Lamian – 243 Rue Eau de Robec, 76000 Rouen

If you want to eat homemade hand-drown chinesse noodles, this is the best place in town. Price is affordable for a good quality.

Le Pied de Poule – 16 Rue Victor Hugo, 76000 Rouen

It is not very well located but finally I found not very fancy french restaurant in Rouen. Don’t be surprise if it looks pretty quite from the outside, I think it is simply because it is not located in popular area in Rouen. Yet, the food was delicious, the price was affordable, the decoration is also fine. I ordered the foie gras for starter, then mussels and chips for maincourse.

Summer fresh juice

IMG_7247Summer is coming, so it’s a perfect time to make your own fresh juice and keep it on your fridge. There’s no rule of mixing various fruits or vegetables, but this one is my suggestion:

  • half of melon
  • 1 glass of pure carrot juice
  • half glass of fresh orange juice
  • juice of half lime

No need extra sugar.

Before you blend everything, make sure to keep all the ingredients in the fridge for couple hours. 🙂

Roast chicken recipes: click here

Roast potatoes: cut 4 medium potatoes into medium square. 20 minutes after you put the chicken in the oven,  you can start to boil the potatoes for 15 minutes. Drain the water and put boiled potatoes into a tray, sprinkle some duck fat and put on to the oven for 45 minutes. Normally, it’s gonna be ready at the same time with your roast chicken.

Gravy: put 4 heaped teaspoons of Bisto granules into sauce pan, add 280 ml of boiling water, and some juice from the roast chicken. Stir vigorously and continually until you get smooth gravy.
