1167 Magnolia Avenue, Larkspur, (415) 461-6787
Tucked away in a hidden corner of Larkspur, Tabla is fast becoming my favourite place to eat lunch in Marin county. The ingredients they use are fresh, healthful, local and organic. The food is beautifully prepared and always delicious.
Yesterday I tried one of their specials, the duck confit on a bed of lentils. It was perfect. The soft, savoury lentils were perfectly seasoned and mixed with just enough duck fat to make them tasty. The shredded duck was moist and juicy. The frisee leaves perched on top were fresh, green and crunchy.
Despite being highlighted in the Chronicle's Bargain Bites, Tabla isn't exactly cheap, particularly considering it is a cafe with no waiter service. But for the high quality of the food and the ingredients, it's worth paying a few extra dollars for lunch.
