Time To Celebrate The Potato – Paris Style!

My wife Alex and I were in Paris recently, and we enjoyed three of the most amazing potato dishes – so I had to share them.

All three take a potato – always a tasty treat – and elevate it into something magical!

Let’s begin with what was our single favorite dish on our trip!

Welcome To Caviar Kaspia – And Their AMAZING Caviar-Topped Potato!

Yes, you are looking at something almost too delicious to describe!

In the Place de Madeleine, there are great food stores such as Fochon, and an incredible Cavair restaurant as well!

Paris Kaspar Caviar Restaurant

Caviar Kaspia sells caviar and other specialty items to take home, and has a restaurant inside as well. Once inside, you are given a great menu of caviar options, but the specialty of the house is this amazing potato dish!

Talk About A “Stuffed” Potato!

You are brought a potato skin – but the potato inside has clearly been removed, mashed with tons of butter and cream, and then stuffed back in – and topped with an amazing amount of caviar, with 4 different kinds to order…

You are also given a side dish of creme fraiche to add to the dish…and it melts immediately into the hot potato – but the caviar stays ice cold – oh, and if you are thirsty, you can order an ice cold vodka to go with it as well..

As I said, this was the single best dish we had in Paris, and the staff is friendly and helpful, the environment is casual yet upscale, and the food is terrific!

As exotic as this potato dish is, our next favorite is masterful simplicity!

Chez L’Ami Louis Has A Masterful Potato Cake!

This is simplicity, perfectly executed – a layered potato cake that is topped with raw garlic and fresh parsley – the rest is up to you!

Chez L'Ami Louis Paris

The iconic Paris bistro “Chez L’Ami Louis” is known for their flawless bistro food – such as their legendary $125 chicken for two…

But it’s the side dish that rocks – a perfectly formed potato cake with chunks of potato that are soft inside, but nice and crunch on the outside – and a huge pile of fresh garlic and parsley to stir in…

And finally, I found an unexpected place where potatoes were given a chance to shine! Time to head to the home of the pig!

Au Pied De Cochon

There is a restaurant in Paris that celebrates the pig 24 hours a day, 365 days a year!

But forget the swine:

Look At What These Potatoes Are Soaking Up!

What you are looking at is a pig’s trotter that has been de-boned and then stuffed with foie gras!

And it is served over potatoes that drink up every single drop of the pork gravy goodness!

I never thought about the potatoes at Au Pied du Cochon until this trip, when I ordered the de-boned pig trotter and had it arrive on top of perfectly roasted potatoes!

There is plenty of delicious gravy soaking in as well – as tasty a potato dish as I have ever had – and I had to capture our night there by doing a “mirror” version of a selfie:

Au Pied du Cochon is a really fun bistro – if you want to see more of their menu – and more pig’s trotter as well, check out my story:


As you can see, Paris know how to treat a potato right! I also recently posted about our 7 days in Paris, where we ate 10 Michelin stars…food like this:
