The history of Chá (tea) is one that goes hand in hand with the history of the East. A precious leaf with so many invigorating but at the same time intoxicating powers that played an important role (the trading of tea)  on the social & political atmosphere of certain countries. India comes to my mind.

How this product traveled all the way from Asia to the rest of the world is a journey that frankly leaves me speechless. Some special tree leaves that made people, countries go crazy and develop new trading routes by land or sea just to have it (and sell it of course).

This past Wednesday, my friend and classmate C. and I did a short exploration around St. Joseph´s square. It was a fantastic idea (in our minds) but after walking a few streets we were in total dismay thanks to the glorious Roi Soleil who decided to embrace us with all his strength.

bistro saleya

Chances are that when Alexandre Daune created Le Saleya, he never thought this charming casual bistro in Changle Lu would become a classic of Shanghai´s food scene.

A vast menu with the usual suspects as Salade Niçoise (shown above), quiches, salades vertes (grean leaf salads) or composées (whatever salad with something more than just leaves) and an always humble but well executed Daily Specials & Set Menus for lunch at very affordable prices, makes of this Restaurant a must try when craving comfort French fare in the Paris of the Orient.

Come in. Food is fantastic was what a regular customer told me when I first sat my foot on En Aparthé(s); and when a local, especially a french one tells you that; you just can´t skip the recommendation.

That particular day I was on a solo walk tour around Salon de Provence´s centre ville and while I was passing by Victoria Snack, I saw this very inviting and cozy place that completely caught my eye.  Even thought after the nice stranger´s suggestion I was still hesitant of having a light meal or not; after I met and chatted with Laurence; En Aparthé(s) adorable owner, I j knew I had to stay and enjoy the food and the ambiance.
