Last stop on this whirlwind vacation and it is fitting we should end in Paris, my second home. It's always so good to come back to visit the old familiar places, discover some new ones and catch up with the family. This time, our favorite Moroccan restaurant was closed and we ended up discovering a great little spot called Le Souk. Delicious lamb tagine and a wonderful atmosphere.
Le Relais de l’Entrecote was another good find. Steak Frites is all they serve and since reservations are not accepted there were lines going around the corner. The standard greeting is “How would you like your steak prepared?” Servers come around with a silver tray to serve sliced steak (4 pieces) and fries. I saw the look of disappointment on Raf’s face as he thought, "Is that all?" To our surprise when we finished what was on our plates, the server reappeared with a second round serving. With that smile reemerging Raf ended up eating my portion as well. So simple and so good.
Luckily, we arrived in Paris just in time for Les Soldes. Since the government regulates sales, there are just two times of year when you can get hot deals and we were there on the first day to experience the mayhem. We also managed to sneak into a fashion show at the Galeries Lafayette.
