Le Comptoir de la Gastronomie

After a shopping day at your local cuisine shops (e.g. Mora, Bovida, Simone and the likes), you can take a break at Le Comptoir de la Gastronomie situated next to Bovida. Before coming to Ferrandi, I had always passed by this restaurant/boutique and often saw many people coming out of the shop with bags filled with gastronomic ingredients including fresh fois gras d’oie (goose foie gras) to boudin noir (blood sausage) even wine as well as others sitting in the restaurant next door. 

The restaurant is rather old (supposedly existed since 1894) with wooden banquets and tables. You have a view of the open-boutique that looks like an antique épicerie with its own side entrance. Whatever you find in the boutique you will find on the menu with a couple of more choices of foie gras, cassoulet and magret de canard (duck breast). 

Soupe à l’oignon – simple, traditional but very tasty with the caramelized onions matching perfectly with the the grated cheese

Royale de Foie gras

Salade de Canard – different parts of the duck including foie gras with a subtle vinaigrette

Foie gras poêlé – seared foie gras – melted in your mouth with the sweetness of the honey, went ery well with the crunchyness of the pain d’épices. 
Magret de Canard – perfectly seared (inside was rosé, just as it should be)
Moelleux au Chocolat – to die for!

Yes, I know it’s a lot of duck to handle but this is their specialty – everything revolving around duck, goose and the likes. If you’re in the mood for duck, definitely come to this place that will satisfy your hunger for foie gras
