Le Bistrot de la Galette in the 18th is but a quick ride up the Mont on the charming little Montmarartrobus, a vehicle that serves the old folks in our quartier who cannot or do not want to schlep their groceries or selves up the hill; it's electric, small and inintrusive. So Colette and I found ourselves on it going back to this bistrot where we'd been last Sunday after it had been broken into, but today all was fixed and in order.
We went with one of our oldest friends in town, although, she, married to a French diplomat, has served in farflung places for many years. I ordered the same pigs' ear and yuge salad I had a month ago and our friend had the du Barry (cauliflower and cream) soup.
One of the problems taking pictures of their main courses is that they all look the same - a wonderful galette filled with wonderful food - in the ladies' case the fish of the day (merlan) and mine sweetbreads. As with my prior experience both were superb.
For dessert, we had the puits d'amour ("round flaky pastry") filled with mixed fruit; a chocolate fondant and Gilles Marchals version of a baba au rhum.
Our bill, with 2 bottles of wine, no bottled water but 3 coffees, was 164.50 E or 109.26 E a couple.
