On days when I have French, I try to eat lunch at places that serve French food or give a French atmosphere. I figure at least for one day, I have a day to "immerse myself" in French.
I also listen to my French language CD while getting ready for class.
The pronunciation is still hard for me and I get confused at times, but at least the lessons are beginning to get more interesting.
So, Tuesday I had lunch at Palet d'Or. I've written about them before, mainly to have dessert or their chocolates, but I recently discovered that they started serving lunch.
They only have an assortment of panini. I chose the Normandy (proscuitto and camembert). The sandwich comes with a cup of soup and a salad.
Tuesday was rainy and dreary, so the warm potato soup really hit the spot.
After lunch, your meal comes with either chocolat chaud (hot chocolate), coffee, tea or herb tea. I chose the chocolat chaud. If you chose coffee, tea or herb tea it came with 2 chocolate bon-bons.
After eating the meal, I was actually quite full so I was happy that the chocolat chaud was just a demi-tasse. It was rich, creamy and a nice way to end the meal.
The best part of this was that it was only 1000 yen (about US$10)...I'll be back.
