Dinner @ Paris Go

For our pre-Easter dinner with Elle and Al, they've suggested we try a taste of France at Paris Go.

We begin as is our want with a bubbly, in this case a bottle of NV Pol Roger and as Paalo spies a Châteauneuf-du-Pape on the menu, we decide on a bottle of it as well.

For starters:

tart
Tart aux poireaux [$11]

Al chose the Leek Tart

pate
Pate de foies de volailles [$10]

and Elle opts for the Chicken Liver Pate.

platter
Assiette Froide [$15]

Paalo has the platter that consists of chicken liver pate, home made duck terrine and freshly cured ocean trout

soup
Soupe a l'oignon gratinee [$12]

while I have the French onion soup.

For mains:

Both Elle and I choose one of the specials:

ballontine

Chicken Ballontine - it's a maryland that has been boned and then stuffed with a mix of pork and chicken, served with a morel sauce and mashed potatoes.


Al choose one of the fish specials:

kingfish

Kingfish fillet served with scallops in a pernod sauce.


couscous

Paalo also has a special: Couscous Royale
It's a mixed grill on couscous with a roasted vegetable sauce. Grilled chicken, lamb chops, and sausages are just a few of items resting across the couscous. A small dollop of harissa sits nearby.

We manage to find room for desserts by having Paalo order the item that takes 20 minutes to make!

pear tart
Pear Tart Tartin [$12]

Al has another special of the day - Pear Tart Tartin

apple tart
Tart aux pommes feuilletes chaud [$11]

Paalo has the apple tart

brulee
Crème Brulée [$11]

Elle has the Crème Brulée

meringue
Oeufs a la neige [$11]

and I order the breasts, well that's what they look like.
