You’ll find this and more at Monsieur Chatté, a gourmet shop that exclusively stocks lesser known, high-quality French specialties. A must-get is Monsieur Chatté’s homemade foie gras (HK$250/100g), which has been rated by “Eat & Travel” magazine as the best in town. It’s prepared by Marie Christine Chatté, according to a family recipe developed by Léon Chatté in 1956. Other unique items include a wide selection of jams that are traditionally made in open copper kettles (e.g. Mirabelle plum), cheeses (e.g. Gaslondes Camembert and Bleu D’Auvergine), pate and spreads. Of course, there are also selections of tea and wine from various regions in France (tasting sessions held on weekends at noon).
