Chicken liver salad
Mutton and Couscous
Lamb chops and couscous
5 Euros for a pitcher of wine
The second night in Grenoble, we originally planned to visit the Creperie. Unfortunately both Creperies were closed (lots of shops/restaurants are usually closed on Mondays), so we went into the first restaurant we found open and here we found Restaurant Le Couscous.
Now I’ve had couscous before and have been disappointed many times. But in this restaurant, I found out that to eat good couscous, it needed to be cooked by those in the know. And the lovely gentleman, who ran the place, certainly knew how to do that.
The couscous melted in your mouth like butter. The mutton I had with it was very tender and tasty, the portion size was very generous. They served stew in a seperate pot, the broth of which you would pour over your couscous. I can’t say I licked my plate clean, but did my best with the encouragement of the chef. In his opinion, I needed more meat in my bones.
This is also where I discovered 5 Euros for a pitcher of wine. That cheap? My mind first screamed, “Vinegar!”. I was happy to find out that wine here is really affordable and really that good. I don’t think any restaurant would dare serve bad wine here.
I left feeling full and satisfied. Looking back I would have to describe this night as one of the best during the time I spent in Grenoble. You never know what’s around the corner, so enjoy the unexpected.
