Le Petit Marché is a restaurant I used to have dinners at quite often back in the days when I was living in Paris. It’s a hidden gem, with a local clientele, great and service-minded staff and delicious food! They serve food from the French country cuisine with an Asian twist and they have lot’s of delicious dishes on their menu which makes it always hard to decide…..
I went there on my latest trip to Paris and was positively surprised they were still having their croustillants de gambas on their menu. Must be one of their signature appetizers because I was having it almost everytime I went there during my years in Paris. With other words, it was an easy choice when ordering my food at Le Petit Marché, and since I wasn’t that hungry I went for two appetizers and started with a delicious, fresh salmon tartlette with avocado and mango. As a main dish I went for my favourite croustillants de gambas with sweet chilli sauce. I totally love them…they are crispy with basil and dangeriously addictive…. For dessert I had a heavenly crème brûlée served with passionfruit. Loved the mix of the sweetness from the vanilla in the crème brûlée together with the sourness of the passionfruit – a delicate combination!
God, this is not easy writing a review on food I’ve been enjoying a while ago and definately mouthwatering when I look on the photos. I need my dose of Le Petit Marché soon and if that means a trip to Paris then be it :-)
Le Petit Marché is situated not far away from the beautiful square Place des Vosges in Le Marais and I would recommend the restaurant if you are looking for a genuine French bistro with great quality food and service minded staff. The atmosphere is cozy, familiar and very typical French and if you’re lucky you might be sitting next to a French actor, like I did last time when Romain Duris was there enjoying his dinner ;-)
