This is sort of an open forum but not really. What would be your last meal if you could choose it?
For me I am torn between the two things I live on in Paris. I pick a fairly nice hotel and am pretty cheap on the food budget. It’s a bit sad to be in a fancy Parisian restaurant alone. I think I did fondue for one one time but that was the only time I ever felt like it was “date food” and felt a bit uncomfortable. But the regular bistro on the street has tons of people eating alone and I love it.
My go to order is croque monsieur. It’s a basically a ham a cheese sandwich. But it’s more like a grilled cheese (Gruyere) with ham (fancypants kind). It’s incredible and cheap and different at every cafe you stop at. It probably my first choice. Because fat chicks from Georgia love a good ham and cheese.
A very, very, very close runner up would also be from Paris. In Libya, we called it schwarma. In the US we call it a Gyro. I find it kind of sweet that the Jewish quarter is where the Marais is, aka the gay neighborhood. It’s also where you get the best schwarma at L’As du Falafel. Arabs, Jews, and gays living in harmony is just the best. And just like in Philly where two sites fight for who has the best cheesesteak, there is such a fight over schwarma, I mean gyros. I’ve never tried the competition. I only eat at L’As du Falafel.
I Love Paris
I can get there by heart no matter where you drop me off in the city. I know my way around the 7th arrondissement of Paris better than Atlanta. When ever I am down my good friend suggests I go there. I don’t know the street. I just know the metro stop for the gyro place. It’s in the fourth arrondissement. I had a hot NYE date who took me to gay bars one year. There may or may not be a good story about that here somewhere. The metro shut down for NYE and the hot skinny gay guy had to pedal my fat drunk ass on one bicycle long after the sidewalks closed up. It was the best/worst NYE of my life.
Anyway. What is your final meal if you could choose it?
