For my birthday celebration, Mr.Butter brought me to Marche 27 , a much awaited destination in my wishlist.
Instead of going for the typical tasting menu,we opted for what we really wanted to try because greedy old me thought 50gr for 5 flavors wasn’t enough especially if I have to share it! Soon enough, I realized we ordered more than what our stomach can take!
My first choice was a 100gr fresca scallops. It was actually the least preferred tartare in our order. Not that it wasn’t good, it was good, but it did not stand out as much as the others. I need to note that the dill was rather strong and I could not taste the jalapeno at all. Maybe fresca was more meant for a meat that has a stronger flavor, but then I thought a hint of dill and jalapeno could bring something interesting in the scallops. Sadly, it wasn’t what I thought it would be.
My second choice was a 150gr indian tuna. This has to be the best one. The curry powder was marvelous! It was so unique and unexpected for a tartare. I really felt I was eating indian food in an Indian restaurant.
Mr.Butter first choice was a 100 gr french duck. It was typical way to make tartare. Very good and safe choice.
His second choice was a 150 gr spicy beef. This has to be my second favorite tartare of the evening. I loved how they amped out the spiciness with real chili!
On the sides, Mr.Butter had the normal fries while I had the matchsticks fries. Both equally good.
I had a wonderful diner at Marche 27. Everything was so fresh. I thought I would have enough tartare for 3 months…but the next day, I was craving for more Marche 27! It was that delicious! I would like to note that our order was a bit too much for both of us. It would have been better if we had 200 gr each in total, instead of 250 gr each.
