French dining in Onomichi

If you’re living anywhere near Onomichi, Hiroshima, you have no excuses! If you’re nowhere near Onomichi you should be drooling with jealousy! This is Restaurant aux Herbes. 

I blame my previous lack of dining experience on the bank balance that used to truly reflect that of a struggling student. No cash = no travelling = no international tasty treats. Sad face! Also, dining out usually entailed a quick dash to Steers (South African burger place) for a midnight snack during a late night party. Well all that is changing, and I’m loving every bit of it! A group of us went to Restaurant aux Herbes on Sunday afternoon for the lunch set. It includes a starter (I had liver pate - delicious!!), main (mine was roast lamb), dessert (chocolate cake!) and a coffee. Bread baskets arrive in abundance too, and good bread is such a treasure in Japan. Supermarkets usually sell bread so white it couldn’t be considered bread anymore. So get yourself over there (with this map) and order the lunch set. You won’t be sorry!
