I love these little places. You find one in every neighbourhood and they are always run by the nicest people. And of course …the best selection of cured, dried and fancified meats.
Our french is not the best and we were not adequately prepared to ask about cured meats. I know what your thinking, anyone renting an apartment in Paris should be able to get themselves around a charcuterie with little trouble. This was definitely an over site on our part. So with a bit of work, a bit of time and a helpful stranger from time to time this became our go-to Charcuterie for all our meaty needs.
I wish we had these back home but I just don’t think people are adventurous enough here in N.A.
Every morning we stopped at this bar just down from our apartment for “un Café”. I absolutely love the zinc bars found throughout Paris.
