On The Road A Stop in #Biarritz

Back on the road and heading to Spain, we decide to stop in Biarritz for lunch. The weather is beautiful, and the waves are pumping, makes me think of Hawaii.

Biarritz is located on the Bay of Biscay, on the Atlantic coast, in the Pyrenees', southwestern France. It made its fortune from the sea, as a whaling settlement from the 12th Century onwards. In the 18th Century doctors in Europe recommended that the ocean at Biarritz had therapeutic properties, inspiring patients to make pilgrimages to the beach for alleged cures for their ailments.

I could buy that….

We had also been here 10 years ago.

 

We ate at Caritz, Bar Hotel Restaurant, right over the water, watching lifeguards train in the big waves. Last time we were here we caught a great surf contest.

Crazy shrimp with home-made mayo.

This was a delicious veal Ragu with what looks like toast is actually pasta baked with cheese and basil and a little sauce, crispy on top. The construction was the key, the crunchy baked pasta sits on top of the Ragu.
