Korean snails and nothing at all to do with vagina

A hearty welcome to you Petite Anglaise devotees who have found my site by way of her completely fictionalised version of Saturday's events.

My previous post contains an image of a man wearing a giant vagina. That's a bit much for first-time visitors, especially those who have already been primed by Petite's lies. To ease your transition and help you settle into the world of Le Blagueur, I wil tell you first about the Restaurant Namsam.

This no-frills Korean joint is arguably the best in Paris, a claim that is supported by the bus-loads of Korean tourists who will eat only here. Don't believe me? There's a kiosk inside the restaurant selling little Eiffel Towers, and the tourists have covered the ceiling in thousands of Korean business cards.

We quite enjoyed our bulots à la sauce Coréenne (yes, snails) and crêpe aux poireaux (with squid). The hands-down winner was the barbecue Coréenne poitrine de porc piquant avec seiche. Whoever thought of pairing bacon with squid is a genius.

We ate and drank very well for around 20 euros a person, and I hear that their lunch specials are even better. Go see them at 87 avenue de Flandre, M° Riquet.

So there you have it - an innocent little restaurant review from a modest and misunderstood blogger. I hope this post goes some way toward dispelling any rumors you may have heard about me.

Now, about that vagina...

Fictionalised version? how dare you? I even glossed over the fact that YOU stole the vodka.

Next time I will show no mercy.

I have been reading your blog as well as petites and enjoy both really well. I want to hear more about the beer and vodka that you got busted with!!!!!

Now, now. Nobody got busted for anything. A beer egg was laid, that much is true. But it was all staged, an elaborate bit of performance art.

Lack of vagina causes worry in Canada, "Has Meg lost her touch?"

Oh and I would have so added my business card to all the Korean ones. Did you?

I love Namsam and being a Korean girl, I will confirm that this place is legit! The squid and bacon dish is one of my favorites, if you're okay with the spicy level of that dish, I suggest you try their Kimchee Chigae or I think they call is ragout de kimchee. Delish and the Korean eat mass quantities of this to clean out their systems.
