A business trip brought me to the Dordogne region in southern France. Dordogne is the home region for french specialties made from ducks, geese, and brants. What does that mean? YEAH this is the capital region of foie gras. And we definitely went for it.
Bistrot de L’Octroi
Address: 111 Avenue de Selves, Sarlat-La-Caneda
Style: French, Local
What we had:
As said before, we were in the main region of foie gras so we could definitely not miss out having some. Great thing is that the bistrot offers the “Trilogie de Foie”. From lef to right duck foie gras, goose foie gras and slighlty roasted brant foie gras. All served with some duck ham, grapefruit jelly, plum marmelade and crackers. This is definitely a delight for all foie gras lovers.
Second some roasted duck breast with orange sauce. Duck is a specialty why choose anything different. Very tasty, too.
When we got to choose the dessert there were 9 desserts to choose from. So which one should we take? Well.. we came to the conclusion: Why not all? Well the Bistrot de L’Octroi offers a the “Symphonie de Desserts”. 9 delicious French specialties.
Top row: Fruit salad, lemon pie, and strawberries with whipped cream
Middle row: Crème brûlée, vanilla ice-cream, nougat-cream
Low row: Rice pudding, fondant, meringue
Amazing place to be and enjoy classic French cuisine. We recommend to walk to this place. The walk back to the hotel is defnitely needed to help the digestion.
