Paris Day One: L’Européen City of Love

My first time in Paris was quite an experience. From Lyon, all it takes is a two-hour train ride to get to the famous city of love. A couple of weeks ago, we made the trip and arrived before noon raring to get things started. But before the imminent sightseeing (and all else), lunch was the first stop.

There are plenty of tourists during summer, and for first timers, all you have to do is to follow the crowd to find something. In this case, what we were searching for was a good place for nomz. The crowd led us across the street from Gare de Lyon (our train stop in Paris) to a blockful of restaurants that seemed popular with both tourists and locals alike. Eventually, we parked our hungry selves on a table in a nearby restaurant that was the right mix of busy and laid back.

It seemed that we made an excellent choice. Pictured above is my perfectly cooked steak that was so good, I kept making gross moaning sounds with each bite. It came with a huge side of fries that went perfectly with the gorgeous slab of beef. It was steak done right.

For the non steak fans (that’s sad), baked tilapia is a good option. It’s light and tasty and doesn’t have to sit in your intestines for three days. These two entrees come with appetizers, both pictured below, its names I’ve already forgotten but its strong flavors, my tongue will surely take a while to forget  There was bread too of course, it’s a staple in good French restaurants.

The meal that comes with an appetizer and an entree costs 22 euros per head which isn’t bad, considering the snazzy place, the hospitable servers (who could speak some English), and the ‘magnifique’ nomz. After lunch at L’Européen, we were all set to paint the love town red.
