Every trip to Paris, I have to stop by Bellota-Bellota, the Spanish meat / fish store right near my in-law’s apartment. While there, I stock up on super delicious (and also super expensive) anchovies and tuna.
Since Ken was out to dinner last night and I had nothing to eat (we have a pending renovation/move-out, which means our pantry is empty), I had a good excuse to open up the luxurious anchovies and treat myself to some fine-dining-fish-in-a-can.
40 euros for the tuna? I KNOW, I KNOW, even MORE ridiculous. But the tuna is actually where it is at. It is divine. Problem is, I couldn’t take a picture of it last night because I didn’t want to open up a 50 dollar can and only eat a fraction of it since it was dinner-for-1. But it is incredible. And worth a trip to Paris, to the store, and to travel home with it. Dreaming of it now….
Sorry for such a random post, but trust me, the anchovies and tuna are seriously divine – worth a trip to this store (near the Champs-Élysées) if you are ever in Paris. Truth be told, I am a little overwhelmed with life right now. I tutored 5 hours just YESTERDAY in one day, started to pack up my entire apartment, have the two kids finishing school in 2 weeks, the pending gloom of packing for the summer, (with a trip back to Paris with Cruzzie right beforehand); ALL OF THIS while still attempting to be a good mother and wife and friend and daughter and blog-writer. Fish, be it. Tuna, thank you for the post. Have a good weekend!
