Aux P'tits Crocs

Cheese plate at Aux P'tits Crocs. The big slab is tomme d'Alsace. From there, clockwise, is the munster, chèvre cendré (goat's cheese with ash), a salad, and cumin seeds for the munster.

Our last decent meal after several days in Alsace was a late lunch at Aux P'tits Crocs, steps away from Strasbourg's fantastic Gothic cathedral. I skipped starters and main dishes to go straight to the cheese plate. The munster, pleasantly-but-not-overpoweringly strong, was served with cumin seeds that added another dimension to the taste and texture while serving to cut some of the strength. The tomme d'Alsace was delicious. I have a particular weakness for semi-hard cheeses and this one, made from cow's milk, had a lovely mellow flavor, simple and cheesy. The chèvre cendré, lightly coated in ash, was mild and boring.
