La Parisienne Pâtés is a beautiful French gourmet deli and charcuterie on Lygon Street in Carlton.
I stepped in for lunch today. They really do have all things French. First and foremost they have an impressive deli filled with all kinds of animals I've never before tasted (including duck, rabbit and venison).
Up the back, they have a small eating area, overlooking their macaroons.
I played it safe and had a goats cheese tart for $7.50. If I'm honest, I didn't love the pastry edging after it had been microwaved for 30 seconds, but the goats cheese filling was probably the nicest I've ever had. I'm keen to return and try their Caramelised Onion Tart, maybe with a side salad next time.
As well as jams, pates and cured meats, La Parisienne Pâtés also sell imported French cheeses, condiments, wines and chocolates.
I think this'd be a great place to stop by to stock up for a French themed party or event.
