Tips from Paris: Le Roi du Pot au Feu

During my visit to Paris we had dinner at 'Le roi dupot au feu'. A very authentique tiny restaurant in the 8th arrondissement.

Although they had several dishes on the menu, the only one that was available was the Pot au feu. No problem, cause you really have to go for the signature dish anyway. So Pot au feu it was.

We watched how two other French diners where eating their meal. How they ate the marrow with coarse salt, and the pot au feu with mustard.
The meat was really juicy and tender and the vegetables - as you can expect - cooked for ages.

Pot au feu is an authentic French dish. A stew with chunky bits of vegetables (potato, carrot, leek) and beef. And of course the bone of marrow. A real peasant's dish.

The address is: 
34 Rue Vignon,  75008 Paris
