Manger au Pollet
On the return journey I wanted to try the fish menu at Le Turbot just 200 yards away, but found it shut, so tucked in for a second serving at Café Jehan Ango. The name relates to the former fief of Dieppe who defeated the King of Spain in battle, and surveyed his fleet from the castle at Varengeville. There is a huge à la carte menu on the wall, old traditional bone breakers like Tripes and Sauerkraut, and novelties such as cassoulet of snails with a cep and morel sauce. I plumped for monkfish livers, having never tried this delicacy, known by gourmets as ‘woodcock of the sea’. Intensely fishy, clean and fresh. Made for the boat after an early evening apéro at Mieux Ici Qu’en Face, always a toothy welcome and an unparalled view of the port as it subsides into a soothing twilight blue.
