Bistro Taberoya / ビストロ タベロヤ


Who says two guys can't go to a French restaurant.  Yep, after having a few beers and a bunch of deep-fried morsels, my friend and I went in search of another restaurant for a regular dinner.  First we checked out this Italian place but it was reserved for the evening.  Then we thought about going to this izakaya but bagged that idea.  Then we found ourselves walking along one of those back-alley type roads and came upon this little French bistro called "Taberoya".  It looked kind of homey so we decided to have our meal there.

男二人でフランス料理店へ?別に良いんじゃない。串揚げ屋から普通のレストランに行こうということになって、三軒茶屋を歩き回った。最初は気になるイタリアンを発見。でもその日は貸切でした。次は宮崎県の地鶏の店。でも先の串揚げも居酒屋の感じでそこも一旦却下。また三茶の裏道を通ったら小さなフランスビストロを発見。雰囲気も良さそうだったので、そこに決定。店の名前は「タベロヤ」。




Oh my, it's been a while since I had myself any French cuisine.  It might have been at my friend's wedding who I was dining with. We had a bit of everything it seems and it was all delicious! 

どのくらいぶりにフランス料理を食べたのかな。もしかして一緒に行った友達の結婚式かも。いろいろ頼んで全ての料理は美味しかった!



First, an appetizer of shrimp and ham.

最初に出てきたのは海老と生ハム。




Crab & crab miso mousse that you spread on the bread.  Yummy!!

カニ肉とカニみそのムース、トスと和え。 美味しい!




While eating at a French restaurant, one must order the standard escargot!

フランス料理の定番、エスルゴのブルゴーニュ風!




France is also known for its cheese so we had to have a cheese dish as well.  These are cheese canapes.

フランスと言えばチーズも有名なので焼きチーズのカナーペを食べました。




For our entree, beef with a red wine sauce.

メインは牛肉の赤ワイン煮込み。




We did not forget our veggies as we ordered a salad with our meal.

野菜も忘れてませんよ、ちゃんとサラダも食べました。




Ooh, these were awesome!  Scallops with a garlic butter sauce!

おう、これは絶品でした。帆立貝のニンニクバター焼き!




And a beef steak with the chef's special sauce.

そして、牛ロース・ステーキ チェフのおすすめソース。



Lets see, am I forgetting something?  French restaurant.  Something to drink with our meal.  Beer?  Of course not.  Its a wine night.  First we started off with a red.  A Garriottine Malbec (I'm not a wine connoisseur so don't ask me how to describe the taste).

僕は何か忘れてますかね?フランス料理店と言えば。料理の共に飲むのは?ビール?違うでしょう。やっぱりワインですね。最初に飲んでみたのは赤。ガリオッタン マルベック (私はワインには詳しいくありませんので、味の説明は勘弁して下さい)。



Next, we had to try a white so we went with a Riesling Trocken 2010 from Reichsrat von Buhl.

次は白。選んだのはライヒスラート・フォン・ブールのリースリング トロッケン。




Oh, no we did not order bottles.  We only had a glass each.  And finally, we had a Sauvignon by Louis Eschenauer.

あっ、ボトルで頼んだわけではない。最後飲んでみたのはルイ・エシェンアウワーのソーヴィニョン。





A very nice place.  I think I might have to come back here with Mikako some time.

素敵なお店でした。今度美香子を連れてあげたいと思います。




A fair selection of wines if you're into that kind of thing. 

ワインの種類も豊富です。


Bon Appetit!

いただきます!

Butter, garlic, red wine in the sauce and in the glass ... bliss. Man cannot live on rice and green tea alone. :D
