Pizzeria Pepone (Paris, France)
After visiting the love lock bridge and leaving our share of memento we slowly strolled along the River Seine moving towards Notre Dame. Having walked the path several times we decided why not explore the inner streets and see what Paris can offer. Several hundred metres after the bridge we turned right to Rue Dauphine and discovered a lot of small boutique shops every women would definitely love. As we walked further the number of people get denser as well which means there is something further ahead, getting excited what to see we walked faster and discover an alley just when the street intersects with four others.
Rue Grégoire de Tours was full of chairs and tables where people dine in Al Fresco, you can barely walk in the middle and as you passed by each table you can easily smell and see what they eat. Since we were there we decided to join the people dining and we chose Pizzeria Pepone, which if I can remember it was the first or second restaurant from Rue de Buci.
Waiters attended quickly to our needs and we were able to order immediately. What we got are two pizza, a pasta and some salad. Let’s start with the salad, it was the smoked salmon salad, it comes deconstructed and loaded with loads of smoked salmon I wished I had a bagel on me that time.
Then the Seafood Pasta, at first it tasteless but trust me this is loaded with flavours, well-seasoned and delicious. Looks don’t justify this plate of pasta.
Then we had the two pizza, definitely the Hawaiian for my daughter and the Ham and Mushroom Pizza to share. They looked nearly the same apart from the mushroom and pineapple differences between the two, we loved the crust and again like any other pizzas in Europe we tried they were great.
Overall dining there was amazing, eating in the street with people walking nearly beside you added to the whole experience.
