Cavalock and The Les Cocottes Liaison

Reached Paris in the evening and just in time for dinner at Les Cocottes de Christian which just happened to be round the corner from my little hotel, and I do mean 'little'. It's also within walking distance to the Eiffel Tower so it's definitely a nice dinner spot after a tour.

The restaurant doesn't take any reservations so you gotta start Q-ing if you want a seat especially if you got a large party. Anyway it's a pretty casual joint where if you are dining alone, there's a counter seat area not unlike a sushi bar counter. Even the regular tables come with high stools.

The thing bout this place is almost all the food is served in cast iron casseroles. It retains the heat and flavor of the dish. I ordered the day's dinner set. Mackerel and scallop (with a little puff pastry hanging on the side) for starters, followed by liver with caramelized onions and mashed potatoes. There's a better review here by another Singaporean!

Heh, I have more than a couple of Le Creuset pots and pans so I'm really tempted to try my hand at whipping up something. But that's gotta wait till next year, more on that in another post. ;)
