Cafe du Marche – Paris


1

We stopped at Cafu du Marche by happenstance on a rainy afternoon , and in quintessential rainy-day-in-Paris fashion, I had the best duck confit of my life. Cafe du Marche is known for good food at reasonable prices, and for only about 9Euro, this was the juiciest, most flavorful, just sweet enough, just-caramelized-enough-on-the-outside duck confit ever. The crispy/soft/garlic potato rounds cooked in duck fat were the natural and perfect accompaniment. Even though the lettuce would appear to only get in the way, it was good for an occasional palate cleansing.

The Lamb Tagine with Curry was good enough, with tender lamb, but the curry flavor in the sauce was a little funky to me.
