France Trip Food & Wine

2014-04-22 16.52.19

Planche Mixte at a wine bar near the Place de la Republique that we stumbled upon looking for our first food in Paris. When our lovely, charming waiter brought this out, our eyes nearly jumped out of our heads. Then he came back with a different basket of bread and told us to eat one of the cheeses with butter and that bread.

It might have tasted good because we were starving and in Paris and eating charcuterie at a café, or it might’ve just been delicious anyway.
