This weekend in Paris, my friend Aurelien got a restaurant recommendation from one of his friends who is a restaurant reviewer in the city. Hence, we ended up going to an incredible yet reasonably affordable restaurant (at about $30/plate). The escargot here is one of the best dishes I have ever tried. The sauce, called Persillade (or beurre d'ail), was simple but unbelievable. The texture of the escargot was like a perfect shrimp with even less crunch. All for a cool 1 euro per snail. Stewed snails here in Gent just don't compare. Chalk one up for the inflated reputation of French food.
