L’Avant Comptoir de la Mer (Paris)

Since the first time visiting this bar (in 2014), it has become one of the favourites.  We’ve been here every time we visit Paris as it’s an easy, casual bar with fantastic food.  The guys who work here are never shy about recommending a good wine to go with the food, and believe you me, the wines are brilliant.  Here’s a couple of pics of the yum yum dishes.

Fried soft shell crab…

Lobster in a cream sauce (it’s really good!)…

Octopus on tiny baked potatoes….

Prawns wrapped in potato strings

Cured salmon wrapped in nori...

Cured tuna... which taste like bacon.  Must be the same curing technique.

Prawn gyoza...  super delicious…
