Chocolate with cannelle crumble
Feeling offal-y brainy (😐) yesterday with an al fresco lunch @leclownbar Paris. This unassuming bistro is high on many foodies’ agendas when visiting Paris, and it didn’t disappoint. Many speak with high regard to the previous chef who has now moved on but this was my first (and definitely not last) visit here so I didn’t have that particular reference point.
At way less than a third of the price of my lunch the day before at L’Ambroisie, this was a very welcome and refreshing change from all that pomp.
Veal brains may not be the first choice of many people to order but one thing they do here very well is offal so I would urge you to dive into these and enjoy the incredible creamy set-custard like texture (indeed I have had these served as a dessert before at restaurant Sacha in Madrid), in a surprisingly light dish with ponzu, chives & ginger.
Then a must is to order the veal sweetbreads, served yesterday with black beans & artichoke.
The desserts were so good that I ordered the strawberries with fromage blanc twice and of course I ordered both available cheese courses.
This is a fantastic way to pass a few hours sat outside in the sun and I would encourage you to visit next time you are in Paris.
