Spicy Roasted Lamb with Seasonal Vegetables
/ ￥2,400 (Including tax)
The spicy roasted lamb is soft inside, and the pink meat is full of flavor. However, the taste of lamb is not too strong or gamey, but just right. When it is combined with seasonal vegetables, the dish feels even fresher. They use a Bon Bonheur pot which keeps the dish warm well.
Truffled Egg Cocottes
/ ￥1,300 (Including tax)
This dish is served on a cocotte, and the best part about it is that when you break the eggs on top, the egg yolks mix with the other ingredients, and make this dish taste heavenly. The French bread you get with it is also tasty; and when eaten topped with the truffled eggs, it turns into something incredibly delicious.
Truffled French Fries
/ ￥800 (Including tax)
French fries are something you often see in pubs, but the French fries here are a bit different. The thinly cut fries are actually served to you topped with truffle powder, making them taste especially good! They’re not too oily, but make a great companion to some red wine.
Broccoli & Avocado Salad

Avocados, which are also known as alligator pears, have a creamy but delicate taste. But when you add broccoli and sudachi-lime to it, you get a not only healthy salad but also a delicious one.
