Good Food and Shopping for Antiques...

{photo from here}

We spent Sunday in Bordeaux as it was the last day of the Antiques fair and also the marche aux puces/flea market.

On of my favourite places to find treasure is the Passage du St Michel which is home to a range of different antique dealers.

On the ground floor is a fabulous restaurant where both the food and the decor are "vraiment super".

We ordered the plat du jour which was 1/2 a roast chicken with mashed potato and it was the best that I have eaten.

So if you are ever in Bordeaux and you want to hunt for treasure and afterwards eat at a restaurant amongst the treasures, you know where to go but do not tell anyone that I told you....

A demain mes amies, Leeann x
