Quebec City Je t'aime beaucoup

First evening in Quebec City we ate at the Cafe de Paris

 It is actually an Italian Restaurant with a French name.

Everyone was happy with their meal. I selected the Veal 'Marengo' referring to meat dishes cooked in a combination of onions, tomatoes, wine and mushrooms. Named for the village of Marengo in the Piedmont region of northwestern Italy, this dish treats tender veal with a rich but not overpowering sauce.
I am going to make this dish very soon.
Kara chose le blanc de poulet, a tender Chicken breast with a dark sauce made with wine & sliced mushroom that was something like this recipe.

Our meals were served with a cup of fresh vegetable soup, sliced cabbage, carrots and browned potato wedges, fresh breads and cups of hot coffee.
 When the cake slices arrived we decided it was too pretty not to have images. The atmosphere is intimate, not a really good place to take out a camera and start snapping without making the other patrons feel uncomfortable.
We manage to take a few images to remember the ambiance of our first meal in Old Quebec City.
Good meal wine helped us get acquainted while an accordion player welcomes us with laughter and French songs the group can sing along.

Here a member of our travel tour joins in the fun playing wooden spoons.

Everywhere we went it hard to leave however there was always new things to see just around each corner.

                                            Final look back as we went back down the stairs.

Renewed and ready for an evening of exploring the streets and shops of Old Quebec City.

The ramparts surrounding Old Quebec (Vieux-Québec) are the only remaining fortified city walls that still exist in the Americas north of Mexico, and were declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1985 as the 'Historic District of Old Québec'.
