le bois

Yesterday I had an errand to run so I was in the Kitahama area. I stopped into Le Bois for lunch.

It had been nearly a year since my last visit.

I really like this cafe, super quiet. (well, until a group of chatty women came in...)

I ordered their pâté lunch...1080 yen (tax included).

This came with a piece of their cake salé (savory cake) with olives, hazelnuts and a little ham.

The plate came filled with a tiny cup of their cream soup, some pickles, their potato salad, three large slices of sourdough bread and two slabs of their pâté.

I was quite full after the first slab of pâté, so I asked the waitress if I could take the rest home. She wrapped up my leftover pâté, a slice of bread and the potato salad.

To end the meal they gave me a hazelnut cookie with my espresso.

I froze the pâté and will use it in bánh mì another day.

This place definitely doesn't disappoint.

I've been lurking your blog for a while and I just wanted to say THANK YOU for your recipes!
I moved to Japan last year as a poor student, and I was a bit at loss at what to cook: I know how to cook my country's food, but most of the ingredients are too expensive here, and I also have some dietary restriction that limit what I can eat outside, and there was a lot of food that I never saw before and didn't know how to cook.
I love your recipes because you cook delicious with affordable ingredients :) so, thank you again for your inspiration!
