Eat a Crepe (or Two)
In Paris, crepes are a staple. We found our first crepe destination, Des Crepes et des Cailles, on a charming small street in the La Butte Aux Cailles area (13eme). Translated as "hill of the quails," La Butte Aux Cailles is like a little village unto itself and offers an authentic experience of an older Parisian neighborhood.
The restaurant is small and sweet with little flourish except a maritime theme. Best to keep it simple. We chose:
Complet: Ham, cheese, egg
La Raclette: Raclette cheese, potatoes
Nutella: The delicious hazelnut spread (and nothing else)
Watch the pros compose a crepe:
