There’s a new triumvirate presiding over the new Mordus, located in the rather residential Saint-Agne neighborhood. In this small Toulousian house that opens out onto a pretty garden acting as a terrace when the sun is out, young chef Marie Dupuy cooks up fresh and local fare, backed up by sommelier Gaëtan Chauvet (ex-Place Mage) and baker-pastry chef Didier Le Meur. Inspired by the constant arrivals from nearby artisans and producers, the cuisine is creative and instinctive, highlighting the quality of the ingredients. The day we went for lunch, on a plump waffle, we had some very indulgent shredded pork slow-cooked in carrot ketchup; followed by cuttlefish and firm asparagus heads sautéed in wild garlic, with asparagus cream and mashed potatoes; before a fresh Soumaintrain cheese with lightly whipped cream infused with mustard. A trio that knows what they’re doing and are worth the trip! // Auguste Marie
