Sa Qua Na

Honfleur, France
Sa Qua Na


By Bob & Sue

Alexandre Bourdes is turning out some of the most innovative food in Normandy. His Vert Olive Aime course tasting menu features poached monkfish with coriander leaves in a coconut broth, a perfectly cooked steamed salmon with a ravioli of leeks, ginger, pork juice and roasted bacon, cod in an emulsion of oysters and lettuce with cuttlefish ink, and a special roasted saddle of lamb with Morrocan spices on a white bean paste with orange blossom juice. The desserts were also innovative including a prune crusted flan and a cappuccino pot au glacee with chocolate crunch. This brilliant young chef opened Michel Bras’ restaurant in Japan before returning to France to make his mark in this picture book port.
