The famous chef ‘Mory Sacko’ opened his restaurant Edo at the beginning of August in the very famous ‘Cercle des Nageurs’ ( swimming circle)!  An exclusive place for  tasty cuisine, two set of menus for 21 or 29 euros, Japanese and African dishes  ( we particularly love the salmon tempura and the grilled chicken with mafé sauce) and a great view on the harbour  of Marseille and the ‘Catalans beach’. Hurry up and try it out, it will close its doors on the 10th of October and fly to London…

Gingembre moves to Noailles

This Vietnamese urban bistro located at 39 rue d’Aubagne delighted us for lunch! Tasty dishes cooked by the chef Tony, and a friendly and nicely decorated terrace while waiting for the interior to be finished in September. Gingembre will have everything to please you for your lunch breaks,  your dinners, or even for a little snack during the day because the restaurant serves continuously from noon to early evening from Wednesday to Sunday. We loved the ‘bobun’, a timeless but  very successful dish, the Vietnamese salad of prawns and raw vegetables straight from the market and incredible dessert, a mango sticky rice to be tested absolutely.
