The other night, we had dinner at Pinxo, a modern little restaurant near the Louvre. They serve everything tapas style or in individual little portions for each dish. They usually come in threes, but there were 4 of us, so they upped it.
The soup, which I initially resisted ordering as sounding boring, was delightful. Very fragrant and chock full of vegetables and tender large prawns.
The pumpkin cappuccinos were rich with the local pumpkin carrying the rich taste of chestnuts, topped with a delicious foam.
Notable entrées: The irresistable shrimp with coconut milk rice and meaty tuna with Belgian endive, which was cooked soft and twisted around the base of the fish.
The portions were large (especially for Paris) so we split 2 desserts, which was way more than enough.
The crépes were not what I was expecting but they were refreshing, while managing to pack a calorie laden punch.
The Tiramisu were beautiful and delicious - a real winner.
