Nama means “eat” in Japanese; it’s one of the rare restaurants that open on a Sunday night in Bordeaux.
To be honest, it was not our first choice, not even our second choice; However it seems to us it was the best offer in Bordeaux for dinner on a Sunday night. It was a good find, because the cuisine offers a creative cooking with an Asian touch. Patrick Heyrere, our host and sommelier is from Laos and the chef, Paul Couzien – ex-Saint James and disciple of Nicolas Magi's, joined forces to open Nama.
Now let’s us get back to menu and the dishes : we chose the Entrée/Mains Dish/Dessert for 39 Euros.
Our entrée was a perfect poached egg in a Miso soup, very original and delicately tasty. Main dish was a duck magret with seasonal vegetables, that my partner found excellent, but it was a little bit too cooked for my taste. The dessert, mango dices served with a scoop of milk ice cream, was so good and refreshing that our son asked for a second scoop of the ice cream.
As for the wine, our host proposed a blind tasting of one glass of white wine (which turned out to be Voignat) and one red wine (Bordeaux) both biodynamics, both excellent choices.
The only caveat for us is the scenery : the place is a little bit too dark in its Burgundy colors for our taste, it lacks luminosity. Paul Couzien and Patrick Heyrere need to refine their vision and cooking to become one the best gourmet addresses in Bordeaux not only on Sunday but every day.
