After spending a lot of time taking pictures and battling the crowd at Trocadéro, we decided to grab dinner at Schwartz’s Deli. The place is decorated as a diner with little booths and red gingham table covers. It was close to 10pm yet the place is still packed with teenagers and twenty somethings.
I was feeling adventurous that day and decided to get beef tartare and fries (tartare de boeuf et pommes frites).
I have had beef tartare in the past as an appetizer, and I remember it being very heavily spiced with pepper and herbs and it came as a total surprise in my mouth, in a good way. This was not, in fact I found it a bit bland for my liking. That being said, it pretty much felt like eating a raw burger patty. It wasn’t that bad really, but the country girl in me just was not used to lack of the aggressive flavors to mask the tartare’s texture.
