Lunch at Jaja, Le Marais, Paris

While my granddaughter was at Creche, we stopped for lunch at Jaja a restaurant in Le Marais described as “a piece of countryside in the heart of Paris.” It’s a small bistro offering creative house-made dishes using regional produce and serving ten grand crus by the glass.

My favorite of the three dishes we shared were the tender scallops, grilled and served with slices of Granny Smith apple and blood sausage topped with crunchy fried Tuscan black cabbage (€15) chips. Also delicious was the thick slice of roasted cauliflower tandoori style, first marinated in yogurt and spices, topped with sliced pear and served with tahini (€19). Along with those, we each had a glass of Sancerre Rouge Belle Dame (€13).

Our least favorite was the steak dish not because of the flavor of the dish, but because the meat was quite tough. The accompanying Jerusalem artichokes puree, pieces of salsify and segments of sweet onions from Cévennes (€21), though, was a wonderful flavor combination.

We didn’t order dessert as we were heading to another place for a special Cafe Gourmand, a cup of coffee with four small desserts!
