I don’t know what the hell we ate the last time we were here, but the food we’ve had the last few days in Paris has been nothing short of almost perfect. You can easily get food this good in San Francisco, but it’s significantly more expensive, too Californian (would you like avocado with that?), and not quite as good. The secret ingredients are butter and cream.
Addendum: This afternoon for lunch, we stopped at a little cafe not unlike every other cafe in Paris. Poulet et scalloped potatoes for 11 € (VAT + service included)…best chicken I’ve had in awhile. I hardly needed a beverage it was so juicy.
