Fine cuisine in a suburban shopping area Dec 14, 2009
If James I of Aragon(Jaume el Conqueridor in Catalan),the King of Aragon,Count of Barcelona,Lord of Montpellier,first King of Majorca(1262) came alive again,he would surely enjoy the fine cuisine of the restaurant of the Mas des Arcades hotel run by a local Toque Blanche.

After a light mise en bouche,my wife and me had both as starter a fine beetroot carpaccio and gambas lightly flavoured with turmeric,then Danielle had filets of Emperor Angelfish(correct cooking) with a vegetable pastilla flavoured with Raz el Hanout in an emulsion of a local sparkling wine.I had an oxtail hachis with blood sausage salpicon flavoured with tonka,a plant from Northern South America banned by the FDA!

My marquise(black chocolate mousse cake) was delightful as the mandarin orange gratin.

We had a 50 cl bottle of local muscat white wine for 10 euro,the menu was 26 euro.

On the way to our second home,this restaurant is really a good eaterie(not much in Perpignan area) and we'll come back!
