I'm just home from the dentist and so no lunch for me just a walk down memory lane to a lunch I had last October at L'Estaminet, rue Oberkampf, 11th Paris
It's a cute little neighborhood restaraurant with really small tables. I went with a friend, she had the special of the day, shrimp and lotte and I had the steak tartare with fries.
This is the steak tartare. It was already prepared, which is not my preference. I like it better when the meat and the fixings are seperate and I can mix myself. A steak tartare is very fresh raw ground beef with shallots, parsley, capers, worcestershire, tobasco, and an egg yolk all mixed together. Of course there are variations, the weirdest I ever had involved diced peanuts and wasabi...
This was the daily special, shrimps and lotte in a delicious sauce. Kind of messy with the shells still on.
This picture is not from the same meal. It is from one of my trips to Etretat. I just thought the pink religiouse looked so delicious that I'm adding it as desert.
And in an effort to improve my photos I found picasa2 from google (check it out if you can't afford photoshop). It does some nice things for free!
