Rabbit Cuisine, Part 1
I love rabbits, yes, but I'm also not squeamish about eating them. Rabbit doesn't appear often on restaurant menus here in Canada but when it does, I order it. Too often, however, the restaurant is "out" of it on that particular day so I end up eating something else.
However, when we were in Quebec City a couple of months ago, I hit the rabbit cuisine motherlode! In Old Quebec, we descended the long flight of stairs down to Lower Town and found amongst its charming shops and old buildings . . .
. . . a restaurant called Le Lapin Sauté -- The Jumping Rabbit! I suspect its name is also a bit of a double entendre on the cooking term "to sauté." Anyway, I knew we had to have lunch here!
Look at the cute "rabbit crossing" sign on the restaurant's outside wall, along with the carrot bucket full of greenery and a cherry tomato plant!
Tomorrow: the restaurant's interior decor and my delicious lunch!
