Ooh la la, tapas-so-tasty (take 2)

Bulots (sea snails) with garlic mayo
Rabbit and farro
Rillettes of pork with radishes and cornichons
Pasta with sardines and capers
LOCATION: Aux Deux Amis, 45, rue Oberkampf 75011 Paris
CATEGORY: French, tapas 
DRINK: Champagne and white Puzelat by the glass and some more delicious wine. Like last time, we got excited and forgot to take detailed notes.
WE THINK: Just because we already made a post on this place doesn't mean we can't do it again. Our love affair with Aux Deux Amis continues. Why? Because the food is light and delicious. Because the menu changes daily, is basic yet interesting and written in near illegible handwriting on the blackboard and on the greasy scrap of paper slapped on your table when you arrive. Because the space is unstuffy, comfortable, is the right degree of dingy and is small but not too cramped. Because the staff are young, unpretentious, friendly and knowledgeable. Because one of Paris' best coffees is served here. Because the wine selection is elegant, interesting, forward-thinking and reasonably priced. Because we like this neighbourhood and sitting at Aux Deux Amis' outdoor tables, basking in the Paris spring sun, is one of the best ways to enjoy it.
