Brasserie = Brewery no? Those aren't beers I like but sounds like I will be having a lot of kir. Look what I found!

not really into shopping. gonna spend all my money in chamonix i think.


.

It has 2 meanings - one being brewery, the other being restaurant. You're way more likely to see it refer to the latter though. I have yet to see a proper beer brewery.

Yeah Kir is not bad, in general french food I would say - a bit like 'fine dining' style + the coldness of the waiter. Just don't expect much in terms of customer service unless you speak a bit of French then they're suddenly nicer to you.

Yeah that's Paul Bocuse's 3 Michelin Starred Restaurant ! He opened 4 brasseries also which I mentioned in one of my posts - the North, South, East, West Didn't try that restaurant though, but his brasseries are not bad they have a 'menu' (french) = lunch set in English. So you can choose select few dishes for fixed price

The menu as we know it in English = la carte in French

Oh yeah Lyon mainly will be those sights for you then the park is not bad too quite huge

looks like i'll be giving lyon a miss. traveling Chamonix - St Gervais - Lyon takes 4hr+ and just the St Gervais - Lyon return train costs 130SGD. a bit too much for a 2d1n trip.

Chamonix has one of the most challenging ski terrain in the alps.
Be real careful if you do this

I ended up only ordering kir once and doing a lot of genepi instead. that's my nickname now.

huge pity that i didn't get to visit Paul Bocuse's restaurant now that he isn't around any more.

contrary to your experience, i had great service in chamonix! probably the best i've had anywhere. the trick is banter with them. probably helped that i became a regular in some of the restaurants...
