Paris: Cafe Constant

Address: 139 Rue Saint-Dominique, Paris
Telephone: 09 75 82 08 07
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

On the day that we visited the Eiffel Tower we had lunch at Cafe Constant, which is located on the eatery-lined Rue Saint-Dominique nearby. The ambiance in the brasserie was somewhere in between relaxed and dynamic. Err…actually that didn’t make any sense. Well, let’s just say the volume was moderate and and customers were mostly locals and not attention-drawing in any way. And the seating, like all Parisian brasseries, was squishy.

The food:

Duck Confit:

Super moist, fall off the bone, flavourful meat. Definitely awesome.

Quail:

Stuffed with some foie gras in the middle. Quite hearty and tasty.

Shrimps:

Didn’t try this.

Profiteroles au chocolat:

Pretty simple and elegant dessert consisting of two choux pastry puffs filled with a scoop of vanilla ice cream in the middle and topped with hot chocolate sauce. The mild sweetness of the ice cream balanced out the super sweetness of the chocolate sauce very well.

Ile Flottante:

Meringue and creme anglaise, I think. It was too sweet for my tastes.

The food was good, and the service was pretty friendly. If you’re ever hungry around the Eiffel Tower, definitely give this place a try.
