Couscous in Paris yesterday

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I was craving couscous yesterday so we went to Le Petit Bleu in the Montmartre area of Paris. (Near the Sacre Coeur AKA the place featured in Amelie, the film.) I hadn’t been there before but had heard good reviews. Looking around, we were sitting amongst families, hipsters, foreigners (English-speakers), and Algerian businessmen sitting with their luggage and briefcases. Figured we were in the right place.

Photos above are of their fish tagine and couscous royal. It was pretty good. I had hoped for greater earthy-tones, and maybe it’s unorthodox but it seemed to us like the dishes could use a generous sprinkle of fresh, chopped parsley or cilantro to add another dimension. I would give it a 7.5 or 8 out of 10. Hit the spot for us, though I can imagine even better renditions of the same dishes.

Will post about Budapest next!
