L’Auberge du Bonheur is a former farm transformed into a hotel that you must visit this summer. Located in Paris Bois de Boulogne, very close to the Hippodrome de Longchamp and Yann Artus-Bertrand’s new Fondation GoodPlanet, behind the restaurant La Grande Cascade (a starred hotel belonging to the same group), L’Auberge du Bonheur can boast about being a green address where tranquility and happiness are the watchwords.
Here and there, families here for relaxing on a Sunday, friends here for a birthday, people laugh, people talk loud, people sing, it is so simple… L’Auberge green setting makes us forget the stress of Paris and enjoy life. At L’Auberge du Bonheur, the female Thai chef, Benjawan Guérin, works hard to offer you a menu inspired by Asian cuisine.
The chef worked at La Grande Cascade and at Le Bellagio. She tried a lot of cuisines and managed to combine the cheeky atmosphere of L’Auberge with her culture of spices and sauces.
As a result, whether they are traditional or exotic, dishes will please your taste buds: crawfish and avocado have never got along so well, cod loin is served with orange sauce, thin slices of poultry are flavored with lemongrass, shrimps are seared with green curry and fresh meat lovers will enjoy the beef carpaccio and its French fries!
By the way, you MUST try the desserts! If you are not hungry anymore, make a digestive break: strawberry pavlova, raspberry shortbread biscuit, cheesecake-inspired rum baba and cream are delights you should not let go.
At L’Auberge, you do not see how quick time flies: children heartily, run in the gardens under the staff’s benevolence, friends stand up to sing “Happy Birthday” whilst some patrons ask for the necessary parasols once the sun comes out and shines too hard. The afternoon has already been on the go so much that you do not see why you should go and walk in the neighborhood forst…
