February 10: Yvette in Japan?

Maybe you’re like me: I think January is a lousy month. It drags on forever. It’s gray and cold. Can’t do anything somehow. February, on the other hand, always comes along a bit more light-footed; sometimes it even has a faint breeze of hope for spring in it. And in the youthfully fresh steps of the year, it simply skips by, the nice short one. A lot of flowery words for a simple fact:

Yvette is ticked off!

In fact, Yvette and I have just under a week left in Trouville. That feels strange, but somehow strangely good. In any case, Astrid Holmes has now found out where Yvette actually comes from: She works as a waitress (but just with the famous black skirt and the white frilly pinafore over it) in the BBC-Britcom `Allo `Allo! from the 80s. She is as well known in England as she is in France. It’s only in Germany that the hit series, which is definitely in the Monty Python tradition, hasn’t really been well received – although it’s not just about stupid Germans in the time of World War II: here, in a small French village under German occupation, all nationalities are dressed up in the usual cliché costumes. All are crooks and idiots at the same time. In short: Résistance and running gags. Well, and my namesake? I’ll just take that as a compliment. Besides, I like Yvette.

And because there is absolutely no transition to the next topic, I’ll just spare it and tell you directly about our nice evening yesterday:

Kristina and Thomas (the nice ones from 2, who now get names after all) invited Carlo, Oliver and me to the Japanese in Trouville. Sounds kind of weird, right! But it was a really great experience. Because: A wonderful place. Modern and stylish, with moderate Asian touches as well as with wonderfully wild patterned wallpaper. And because: Quite a surprise for me as a non-fish lover. Because this was simply fantastic food – most appetizingly presented on great china (I could hold back my twitching long fingers once again only with difficulty) and really good. Kristina and Thomas know Japanese cuisine and had chosen a wonderful assortment of delicacies (I think there were more than seven) for us: For your generosity and company, I want to thank you again very much!

Yes – and because I get all the “trouvillains” for my blog, I got to have a quick chat with patron Tony. He’s a handsome, super-sympathetic gastro guy through and through, has looked at restaurants and cuisines all over the world, assembled a great team, and just opened <a href=”https://xaka.fr”>Xaka</a> in the summer of 2021 – under the most difficult Corona conditions – across from the casino, so in a prime location. Originally all the way from the south, from Bayonne, Tony also fell in love with Trouville and teamed up with the son of one of the big fishmongers from the market. A good idea and a good alliance. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for many happy guests who will appreciate your food as we do! Nice one:
