Where Can I Find a Foie Gras Sandwich in Paris?

Paul Fink

Recommended Posts

On one of our trips to Paris, many years a go, I discovered a foie gras sandwich shop.

On the way to the hotel the taxi went past this small sandwich shop. I could make out "foie gras sandwich" on the sign.

I told my wife we need to go there. We dropped off our bags and tried to reconstruct the path the taxi took.

Found the place and got foie gras & pate sandwiches. We sat in a park had our sandwiches and some wine.

I was in heaven.


I would like to reproduce that experience when we return to Paris this May but I can't find a sandwich shop that has foie gras sandwiches

Comptoir de la Gastronomie?

“Sandwich du bloc de foie gras”

~Martin :)

I just don't want to look back and think "I could have eaten that."

Unsupervised, rebellious, radical agrarian experimenter, minimalist penny-pincher, and adventurous cook. Crotchety, cantankerous, terse curmudgeon, non-conformist, and contrarian who questions everything!

The best thing about a vegetable garden is all the meat you can hunt and trap out of it!

It's not something seen in Paris, really, unless I guess it was some specialty store doing different variations on a product. I know Guy Martin's short-lived sandwich shop Miyou did one. Comptoir de la Gastronomie as well. But not something people usually eat.
