Le Méchoui du Prince
It was a cold, blustery day–typical of April in Paris and I yearned for something substantial. I was having lunch with my friend and printer Eric Boulin and he had what turned out to be a better idea-couscous at Le Méchoui du Prince near le Théatre de L’Odéon.
Although a full menu of tagines and grilled meats are available I couldn’t resist the Couscous du Prince (24 euros) but Pasha would be more appropriate–a large ceramic bowl of couscous, a pot of vegetables with broth and large plate of grilled mutton, beef, merghez sausages, chicken and lamb brochettes. If you plan on eating it all allow time to relax between servings and finish with a mint tea to assist digestion or ask for an ersatz doggie bag.
A selection of Moroccan, Algerian and French wines are available.
Whenever eating couscous I apply the Alice Medina (my maternal, Moroccan grandmother) test–it should be fluffy with each grain separate from the others. et grandmère says oui!
Luncheon menus of appetizer, main course and dessert at 11.90 euros are a great value.
Available for receptions and private dining.
Lunch and dinner daily except Sundays
