A zona do Vaugueux é uma das mais animadas de Caen no que diz respeito a bares e restaurantes, fica aos pés do Castelo muito perto da Igreja de Saint Pierre e é conhecida pela sua oferta gastronómica onde sem dúvida destacaria o Le Bouchon, cuja tradução seria rolha. Não é muito grande talvez por isso sentimos um ambiente mais intimo e até romântico, a carta na sua maioria com receitas da região divide-se em menus com dois pratos e uma sobremesa.
The area of Vaugueux is one of the liveliest of Caen with regard to bars and restaurants, is at the foot of the Castle very near to the Church of Saint Pierre and is known for its gastronomic offer which undoubtedly I would highlight the Le Bouchon, whose translation would be cork. It’s not very big so maybe feel a more intimate and even romantic atmosphere, the letter mostly with recipes of the region is divided into menu with two dishes and a dessert.
As soon as we sat down came a bread stick cup to the table with butter and we decided to order the cheapest menu costing € 22 with a starter, main course and a dessert. For the starter me and my husband chose the same dish that was the carpaccio which was great, with the correct cut and good company. One of the main courses was a perfectly cooked chicken leg with citrus and rosemary accompanied by what they call “garniture basquaise” which included baked potato and mango mousse (?!?! Yes … mango). The other was a pork tenderloin accompanied by potatoes au gratin that was equally good and again with mango mousse that would be the modern touch (and exotic) in the dishes. There was still room for dessert and thank goodness because they were very good, we liked in particular the white chocolate mousse with peach.It was our favorite restaurant on our trip to Normandy and by sticking to the menus we ended up not paying too much to compare with Madrid prices, the service was friendly and the kitchen without much elaboration makes a bet on the quality of their produce.
