Having wandered around the artsy Le Marais region in the 3rd arrondissement, we were needing sustenance and a place to rest our feet for a while (plus, I had to consult our map to figure out how to get back to the hotel).
One thing that I love about France is the plat du jour. You can eat so well on a budget if you pick the dish of the day. Lucky lucky me, today was duck breast with Lyonnaise potatoes. This amazing serve of delicious duck was 11 euros. Gorgeously plump slices of duck breast, smothered in gravy, served with lots of pan-fried potatoes. Miam miam! The dish came with some bread.
We also shared an entree of onion soup. This was pretty good but we've had better for sure. A nice deep savoury broth which was loaded with finely sliced onions and topped with melted cheese on slices of baguette.
Verdict: we liked it a lot
A nice spot for a meal. Friendly and quick service.
