The other day, I visited the popular restaurant "Chartier" where locals line up in the gastronomic city of Paris. There, I decided to experience delicious local food and a once-in-a-lifetime experience that transcends national borders.
Chartier is a popular cafeteria that has been open for over 100 years. It seems to be a popular secret that you can eat delicious local food at a reasonable price, which is rare in the city of Paris where fine restaurants are lined up.
The writer arrived at the shop around 19:00. I was prepared for the procession, but there were still vacant seats. By the way, around 21:00, there was a long line outside the shop. The dinner time of the people in Paris seems to be a little later than that of the Japanese.
When I told the waiting staff at the entrance (a lovely uncle, estimated to be around 55 years old) that "there are two people", he immediately grabbed the girl's heart with a fashionable Paris joke, " Is it two people with you and me?" I have done it.
By the way, at the table where the usher's older sister said, "Please go to this seat" ... What a wonderful uncle (estimated to be around 65 years old) are already sitting. Lie, shared seat? There are other empty tables ...? I was confused, but when I sat down , the distance to the next person was very close .
The uncles praised their cheerful smiles and said "Good evening", so I was relieved. Apparently, here in Chartier, it's normal to eat casually in a shared table. If you look closely, there are many other tables that share the same table.
Read the menu while exchanging light greetings in unspeakable English, such as "Are you Japanese?" "Yes" "Where did you come from Japan?" "It's Tokyo". I have often eaten meat dishes since I came to Paris, so I chose fish dishes this time. The other three, including their companion staff, were ordering hamburger plates.
At Chartier, when you place an order, you don't use a slip or handy, but write it directly on the cloth laid on the table . I'm sure it's this style for a long time. It's the first time I've seen it, but it's really cool!
A few minutes after I finished eating the appetizer, the main dish was already delivered!
Oven-baked fish with dill (herb) seeds (according to the direct translation of the menu). The taste is light, or almost unseasoned, so I sprinkled salt and pepper to my liking. The body is hooky, and the taste of the material is lively even though it is light night. I feel relieved at the gentle taste and the fish after a long absence.
By the way, the hamburger steak ordered by the other three is also very seborn (delicious) with soft and juicy minced meat! is what they said.
While eating, I also enjoy chatting with my uncles. They are not locals, they are coming from Switzerland for sightseeing. The next day, he said he was planning to visit the "Katsushika Hokusai Exhibition" being held in Paris.
Friendly and friendly uncles who teach us how to make wine and scotch, share cheese, and feast on coffee after a meal. It must have been seen as a scene where two pairs of fathers and daughters were eating in the eyes of other customers because of the friendliness.
After drinking coffee and pulling his back hair, he said goodbye, "I'm about to go home." He laughed and extended his hand, "I wish I could meet again someday. Is it Japan next?" We. When I squeezed my big hand back, it was warm and my heart was squeezed.
The seniors in life who surrounded the one-night dining table made the memories of our trip even more unforgettable. "Aisen Restaurant" Chartier where you can have such a wonderful experience. Why not visit when you travel to Paris?
