Suggested by B&B owners this Corsican restaurant was a very pleasant experience.
The way they serve food reminds you Spanish tapas - small portions of pretty much whatever.
But let's not "small portion" mislead you, even a such big eater as I am, could manage only 3 "tapas".
A very unusual touch that the owner, a multi language speaking madam, takes a sit at your table, helping you to make a selection from the menu (in French only). In my case it was an unrushed interview of my food likes and dislikes.
- Does madam like seafood? What about cheese? What kind of cheese? What about beef? What is you do NOT like to eat?
How hungry are you? Then she said: "Let me surprise you! You will be pleased!".
And more than pleased I was.
White Corsican wine and water arrived almost instantly. Food did follow pretty fast.
1) Baked chanterelle mushrooms with herbs, cheese and with a smoked bacon strip in between;
2) Baked scallops in mayo based sauce with fresh chives and other herbs - sauce that deserves a dip with a bread crust...
Scallops were cooked JUST right. If you cook, you know how easy it is to overdo scallops and make the texture like a piece of rubber...
3) Last but not least was beef tartar. Just divine!
A note on tartar. In Avignon they are big on beef tartar. It looks like all restaurants have their own version of this dish. So, if you are like me, big meat eater, oh-boy, Avignon is a tartar haven!
I proud of myself to finish all 3 dishes but it took sometime because it was quite a lot of food (madam warned me not to order more than 3 and to TAKE my time).
Finished up with a shot of espresso.
