Xavier Hamon, the owner of this compact épicerie and tapas bar in Quimper's old covered market, had the novel idea of pairing delicacies from Spain and Brittany. An auspicious match, it turns out, as small plates of artisanal cured meats, like Iberico and chorizo, served à la planche with bread and spicy olive oil, go nicely with local specialties such as a velvety langoustine flan. With Spanish or French regional wines by the glass for as little as €3—and
small plates starting at €4—it's a great opportunity to experiment with pairings. Ah, but this is the point, non?
