Pramil – informal dining in Paris
It was a rather warm November night as we strolled down the Parisian streets. We were in high spirits having spent the day walking around Paris (I was in a particularly splendid mood as I had managed to squeeze in pit stops at Pierre Hermé and Laudrée).
After a pre dinner drink we arrived at Pramil and were greeted by our very friendly servant. She led us to our table at the back of the restaurant.
The menu consisted of 5 starters, 5 main courses and 6 desserts. The waitress informed us that there was a “tonight’s special” starter and entree – which I chose.
King crab, white beans and caviar
Tastewise I found the course interesting, but in terms of texture, it was somehow too soft for my liking.
I love sweetbreads, the fatty taste, the gooey texture. These sweetbreads had an after taste that was somewhat bitter. I wasn’t too impressed.
Cheese might just be my favorite over all dessert. I prefer savory over sweet and in the recent years I’ve been trying to sample as much cheese as possible. I only managed to get the names of three of the cheeses down: manchego, comté, and a goats cheese. The cheeses were quite alright, but not mindblowing.
Pramil provided an excellent frame for an informal dinner. The food was fine, the wine (relatively) cheap and the company execellent. A perfect night in Paris.
