Mid-morning and we had already had two meals since 5pm the day before… but we were HUNGRY. :) So this is the meal we cobbled together from the Raspail market purchases. First up, a fantastic salad of heirloom tomatoes (how do they get them this ripe in November?! in a hothouse?) with mixed olives and two kinds of anchovies (plain and spicy). Splashed with a simple bottled vinaigrette, this salad was utterly delicious.
The tomatoes that were just brilliantly ripe for late November… I had to wonder if they were imported from warmer climates.
The mixed olives in a “small container” that we barely managed to consume half of in 4 days of munching on them.
A large whole roast chicken with tomatoes and onions, which cost just Euro6.50 and we only managed to eat half of the chicken at this meal, I ate the rest of it early the next morning shredded on salad greens.
For dessert, some sweet clementines from Spain. These kinds of meals were so satisfying, and yet, cost no more than Euro5-6 per person or roughly PHP300-350! Now that we were fortified and adjusted to the local setting, we set off to conquer Paris with our long list of to-do’s and must-eats!
