Untours Cafe

Today was a day for packing in earnest, all the clothes were dry ( no dryer but it worked out fine--electricity costs too much to dry clothes with it!)  We walked to the caramel store-Jacques Genin-to purchase more caramels for our house sitters and pet sitters, then strolled around our neighborhood.  My scratchy throat has developed into a real cold, and I am glad it happened late in the trip--I can blow my nose all the way home!

We make our way to Notre Dame and Pont St. Michel, taking in a couple of flower shops along the way to buy some souvenirs and such.  We dropped off our cell phone at Le Navigator for Jane to pick up later, and then went back to our neighborhood to go to the Monoprix one last time.  Here we bought more cheese and grey sea salt from Brittany.  I had seen an idea to package it in the ceramic yogurt containers that we had been saving each morning.  Then I attached a small Tour Eiffel keychain to each one--they made cute gifts for people and very inexpensive compared to buying the salt already packaged in the stores!

We came home and finished packing and got ready for our final night in Paris.  I had booked a place called L'Ange 20 mainly due to it's reviews on TA.  It did not disappoint!  Tiny, but friendly, and some of the best food I've ever eaten.  Here is what we had:

Starter Rhea
Prawns crusted in fresh angel hair pasta sautéed till crispy and served with a lime guacamole
Susan
Packets of goat cheese in filo dough sautéed, served with a fine drizzle of honey and tapenade, along with a salad of mini tomatoes, arugula and pine nuts.

Main Rhea
Duck two ways--filet of breast with a green peppercorn sauce  and braised duck leg finely shredded and rolled in a phyllo crust.  Served with sautéed potatoes, mashed carrot with shallots
Main Susan
Veal crusted with herbs and hazelnuts and a port reduction.  Served with filet beans and potato gratin

Dessert was an almond and apple sauté , served with almond whipped  cream and an almond meringue on top
We had a good bottle of wine.  We are full, happy, and ready to come home!!
