Fruits de Mer on Wheels… only in Paris?!


This is my kind of food delivery. I saw another motorcycle just seconds before drive by with two platters of food which I couldn’t quite make out. I missed the photo op while fumbling to get my camera, and just as I turned to continue crossing a street, a second motorcycle came zooming on by… Strapped onto the back seat was a platter filled with cold fruits de mer (or mixed shellfish) on ice, with some sauces as well. WOW! I love platters of cold crab, shrimp, oysters, mussels, etc. but I never knew you could call to have ready to eat platters delivered! It was quite cold out, so I suppose they weren’t concerned about spoilage… :)

  1. MM, do you know what is that on the driver’s lap? I’ve never seen something like that before.

  2. meg, it’s a blanket to keep his legs and jewels warm… :) It was rather cold when I took this photo, and I imagine that zipping around town in a motorcycle can ramp up the wind chill factor…
