Last day in Paris

Pin It

Our last day in Paris on this trip, with more stops on the food tour.

We had a sudden craving for saucisson, especially blood sausage, so we went around looking for it in the cold weather.  I was taken to Le Bœuf sur le Toit on my very first day in Paris a few years back, and went back for lunch.  I saw the words "andouillette" in the window and the explanation that it's a "saucisson", and decided to go in.

We ordered the andouillette, and turns out it's a sausage stuffed with intestines.  This tasted great but kinda smelled a little, especially when you cut it open.

In the afternoon, we took a break from shopping to have hot chocolate at Angelina.  This was amazing... thick like a pitcher of lava, with a ton of whipped cream which we ended up wasting.  Not something you want to be drinking just a couple of hours before dinner...

Dinner was at L'Ambroisie, a three-star restaurant where Chirac dined with Clinton recently.  Very secluded setting around the Place des Vosges, and the ambiance was great.

We had some Louis Roederer Champagne, which was excellent and the best I've ever had.

I had a very nice turbot with black truffles.  It was delicious but the "wow" factor wasn't there.

A very good meal in a classy setting, befitting a restaurant with 3 Michelin stars.

I can imagine how thick and rich that beverage must have been. Like it warm, not hot.
