We arrived at the old town of Strasbourg, Petite France, in the early afternoon of Sunday, May 6, after a 2-hour drive from Metz. The rain was still following us. We decided to have lunch first and we wanted a typical Alsace meal. Here is a Choucroute with six different meats, that was for me.
Here is the famous local Alsace dish, tart flambé. It is almost like a pizza but uses fresh cream and onion as base instead of tomato.
This is the restaurant that we had our lunch.
It is a very old building, it seems that not a bone in this house is straight!
The restaurant sits right on the river and you can see the name of the restaurant, Restaurant Marco Polo. A very typical touristic restaurant, it was just what we wanted.
After lunch, the rain stopped, we walked around the Petite France area a bit before heading south on A35 to our next destination Colmar. The area is very beautiful but with a lot of tourists. With much skill and patience, we managed to avoid most of them in our pictures.
