Bistro La Ciboulette (ラ・シブレット@浅草橋)

Cozy bistro with only 2 tables and counter seats. Location is obscure but apparently very popular - always a queue at lunch time, and reservation a must for dinner.

Went with a friend and sat at the counter. The delicious egg tarts are teasers, one with prawn and the other with salmon roe. Two for one person so no fighting.

フレッシュフォワグラのポワレ イチジクの甘酸っぱいソース、1890円。
Seems like there is no set course. For appetizer I had Pan-fried fresh foie gras in fig sauce. Absolutely heaven! And such a big piece! Maybe it is meant to be a main?
For main course, I had Roasted venison thigh. Lean and tender meat, incredibly generous portion. The sauce is kyohou(Japanese grape), very sweet very yummy! After I devoured the meat, I joked that I wish I had a spoon to drink the leftover sauce. The next second the madam gave us a spoon each...I swear I wasn't loud(^^;;).

Two of us shared the pear compote with vanilla ice-cream. So good! Not too sweet, very refreshing, especially after the meat feast. While having coffee, we were *quietly* talking about the Canelé displayed on the counter and my friend said you get those at lunch time. The next second the madam gave us a plate for free...she does have good ears. I have to say, this Canelé is the best I have ever tasted!! Never a big fan of this French sweet, but instantly hooked.
Two drinks, a massive appetizer, a main dish, half the dessert, and coffee, I paid only 6800yen. Very good value!
Menu(Japanese only): 1, 2.

The service is great from the madam for sure, only that my friend and I were talking about restaurants and food blogs and stuff like the whole time...stuff you get paranoid being heard by the restaurant staff. ^^;;

Such a tiny place (no wonder the madam can hear everything you say), it looks adorable from the outside. That foie gras looks like steak god!

It also seems like a good sign how thoughtful and considerate the madam was~~ She cares! With that can imagine how serious they would take their food = must be GOOD!

The pear...I craved it so much~ Canele looks like bolts toy in your picture ^^;;;

I love Wikipedia, here is the explanation of Canelé.(^^;;) It is quite popular in Japan. As many other French food, I learn the katakana before I learn the French name...
