This Saturday, we returned to the restaurant where we had our wedding celebration, Etxe Aundi, to eat a dinner for two on the house. Apparently they were pleased with our 10,000â‚¬ business.
Foie patÃ© to start with… There was more ham, too, but it didn’t survive the time it took me to get out the camera.
Marinated clams, the most expensive starter on the menu (25â‚¬). I will never be able to eat clams without thinking of my great aunt, Betty.
Some creamy fish dish that Marga ordered.
My plate: Sirloin steak stuffed with foie gras, with a side of potato purÃ©. This meat was so good that my eyes involuntarily closed from pleasure with each bite. Unbelievable!
For the dessert, Marga chose more wisely than I. This was her ice cream sampler with raspberry sauce.
Mine was cheesecake ice cream with a side of apples, bananas and kiwis.
We had a nice Rioja with the meal, and a coffee and brandy to finish it off. When it was time to go, we thanked the waitress and walked out the door. That’s a nice experience.
