our first meal in *paris*

8 January 2012

It was quite surprising how easy our first meal was given the amount of favourable press our chosen bistro receives in the gastronomy scene. After checking into our hotel we walked only a couple of blocks to the renowned Yves Camdeborde’s Le Comptoir. We were seated among the mostly local diners within just two minutes of arriving. We did notice other tourists who were not so lucky and were told to wait while another couple who had arrived after them were seated first.

Seated outside with a beautiful red scooter in my view, it felt like we had truly arrived in Paris with a whopping great bang into a culture we knew we’d fall in love with. Food, architecture, cafes, lots of pedestrians and dogs, just awesome. Oh did our taste buds rejoice at our arrival! The softest cheese, foie gras sandwiches, tea and juice, and we had begun the French taste adventure.
