Wednesday was definitely a multi-cultural day for me in Paris.
These tacos were so good I took a bite before I remembered to take a photo.
Candelaria is a miniscule restaurant in the Marais that has gotten recent attention with an article in the NYTimes T magazine.
House-made tortillas are just the beginning of the authentic, fresh flavors found at Candelaria.
After lunch, I tracked down Izrael, an eclectic grocery store I had read about.
You can find food and flavors from all over the world. I even saw a package of Aunt Jemima pancake mix!
I had lots of fun looking around but my one take-home find is this glass tube filled with a spicy oil and topped with an atomizer to spray the oil on salad, fish, or other food.
Imagine sitting down to a table in a restaurant already set with these small plates of food!
This is how dinner began at our Tunisian couscous restaurant. Lots of great flavors from cumin and dill.
No way did I even get close to finishing this huge bowl filled with couscous, carrots, lamb sausage, beef and chickpeas. I did manage to finish off the feast with mint tea(in one of my favorite Moroccan tea glasses) and some honey-laden treats.
Please do not think that all I did on Wednesday was eat. Mais no!
Rounding out the culturally diverse day, I viewed the special exhibit at the Paris Museum of Jewish Art and History of Marc Chagall's illustrations of the Hebrew Bible. I am a huge fan of Chagall ever since I viewed his amazing stained glass windows in the Marc Chagall Museum in Nice, France.
