From One La Roche Fortification To Another…Yum!

Following yesterday’s post I’m now back in the centre of the Belgium town of La Roche-en-Ardenne, having spent the entire morning  and the first part of the afternoon walking around the castle.

Now I’m walking through the town  and realising that I haven’t even had lunch yet.

My foot is hurting rather badly now too and I’m realising that I won’t be able to walk back to our accommodation in one go, so a stop for lunch at Restaurant “Le Bronze” is a chance to sit down for a decent amount of time before I try and carry on.

It’s always worth looking at the local specialities on the menu when you are travelling: sometimes there are items there that turn out to be gems.

Such is the case on this occasion, I order “Salade Ardenniase” and receive a refreshing plate of salade with Ardenne bacon, ham, endive, salad, cucumber, tomato, apple and pear.   It’s washed down with a soft drink and afterwards I tell myself that I’ve deserved dessert with all the walking today, so order a wafel with chocolate sauce.  Yum… Just the ticket for steeling myself for the rest of the walk back.
