Bistro Pastis: Duck Confit
Back in 2013, we first visited Bistro Pastis during their Dine Out Vancouver event and I’ve been meaning to come back for a revisit ever since.
We finally got our chance back in December when we stopped by for lunch. First on the table was some complimentary, freshly baked, crusty bread.
Now, you can’t go to a French bistro without ordering the French Onion Soup ($10.50). Their French Onion Soup Gratinée was a good rendition and had plenty of onions in the broth underneath the melted cheese.
Normally, Boeuf Bourguignon ($23) is something that I would highly recommend but I was rather disappointed with this plate. Served with pomme purée, honey glazed baby carrots & beets, and red wine jus, the beef in this dish was super dry.
On the other hand, I was very pleased with Le Cassoulet du Sud Ouest ($23). The duck confit had a nice crisp skin and was both moist and flavourful. It was accompanied with braised white beans and house-made Toulouse sausage.
We added an order of Mac and Cheese ($8) to our meal. I thought it turned out rather well as it was quite cheesy.
Other than the dry boeuf bourguignon, the other dishes seemed pretty good. Take a look at our last visit here.
