I’d seen magret de canard on their specials blackboard as we passed Le Saleya earlier in the day. Now as dinner time approached I was tempted. Three of us popped in for a glass of wine first to Resto, Wine, Notes, then went on to La Saleya. I had the duck and though it good, but the unusual thing was the chips – unlike any other I’ve had. They were soft potato inside a crunchy shell. I tried to guess how I would make them, and thought of stiff potato mash rolled in cornmeal then shallow fried. Nice.
One of my companions chose the seafood tagliatelli, which was declared pretty good.
But the star of the evening was the mixed seafood chosen by my other companion. It came with at least half a lobster, as well as crab, langoustines, prawns, mussels, squid and octopus. I tasted some, and agreed that it was very good indeed.
