After driving through the countryside all day and finally navigating our big car back to the hotel through the narrow streets, we usually ate at a restaurant within walking distance of our hotel, La Mirande. Right below the hotel, there was the cutest restaurant called Chez LuLu.
On the evening we were having dinner, a couple from New York was on one side of us and a couple from California on the other. They were both back for the second night just to have the HAMBURGER! They said it was the best hamburger that they had ever had in their life! We however opted for more traditional French food. The salmon tartar was divine and I loved the addition of the peas to the mixture.
But it was the strawberry tiramisu that was the highlight of the evening meal-
They use goose berries to garnish a lot of desserts and I love the little cookie detail.
Gorgeous architecture is everywhere you look in Avignon.
Charming restaurants abound on the streets surrounding the main square.
Just look at how adorable this one is----------------------------------

Avignon is breathtaking- the weather was perfect and the rose bushes were massive and in full bloom!
