The Avenue Grammont is one of main streets of Tours and is the location of a number of great restaurants including La Chope. Les Papilles is another one that we had the fortune of discovering. French for 'taste buds' Les Papilles definitely delivered when it came to taste but also hit it out of the park with the super friendly service and chic yet comfortable decor. We knew we were in for a good evening when upon walking into the restaurant we were greeted with big smiles from every server we passed on our way to our table.
Again as it seems in France the price fixe menu for 28€ each for a starter, main course and dessert was the way to go. We began with a house made terrine of poultry and the friccase of girolle mushrooms. The terrine was well prepared with strong herby flavours of parsley and chervil. The mushroom fricasse was essentially sautéed girolle mushrooms with shallots and ham. The mushrooms also called chanterelles are a local variety that were in season. We could tell this not only by their intense flavours but also the quantity that made it onto our plate. This was one of the best tastes we've had in France!
To finish we had the obligatory cheese plate and a molten chocolate cake served with a passion fruit sorbet. Both were a great way to end another excellent meal in Tours!
