The restaurant l’Ebauchoir opened a new space, a wine bar, across the street: Le siffleur de ballons. It is a place to eat, drink and buy wine (and other goodies such as terrines, vinegars, honey…) The dishes are simple but good (plate of charcuterie, sandwiches, soupes, salades…) and the prices range from as low as 5€ (the croque siffleur: ham, goat cheese, tomato and roquette) to 12€ (a plate of pata negra bellota ham); wines by the glass range from 3,50€ to 6€. Le siffleur de ballons is a great stop for a quick and simple lunch, for an apéro, to buy a sandwich to go or to buy a bottle or two.
Check out the saturday lunch “Apéromatch”: a wine tasting session consisting in comparing wines from either two different regions, countries, grape variety, vinification… For 18€ you try four different wines while eating cheese and charcuterie.
