Like grand-mère would cook it...

LOCATION: Le Trumilou, 84 quai de L'hôtel de ville, 75004 Paris
CATEGORY: French
FOOD:
1. Frisée salad with lardons and a poached egg
2. Duck with prunes
3. Slow-cooked lamb in garlic
4. Apple sorbet in calvados
5. Chocolate mousse
6. Crème brulée
DRINK: Saint Pourçain red (under the heading "the Boss' wine"), tap water that tasted like chlorine and provided a free disinfection of our internal organs
WE THINK: A great, unassuming joint for basic French grub, its identity perched between a tourist stumble-upon (owing to its location on quai de L'hotel de ville) and a local hang-out for elderly soft-spoken couples from the 'island' (Ile de la Cite). The non-fancy-pantsy food, served in metal dishes which makes it quite unphotogenic (hence the lack of photos), is the kind of French fare you struggle to find outside of France. The canard aux pruneaux made us particularly happy as it reminded us of Christmas at granny's.
