French Toast is one of those things you feel awkward in Paris ordering. It's like asking for French Fries or going to England and asking for an English Muffin. It just feels wrong. If it's in France, wouldn't it just be toast? Anyway, that's neither here nor there. What we're here to talk about is the best God-damned french toast in the Paris. There is no doubt about it. I'm not calling myself a French Toast connoisseur, but let's just say I've been around a slice or two and seen good and bad varieties of the sweet dish. However, this is the first time I've seen french toast served as a dessert.
At Schmuck in Paris, where I lunched with some of my favourite bloggers and Next last week, the french toast isn't the main event, but it sure as hell should be. After we finished our steak frites, we were offered the dessert menu and each and every one of us seemed to gravitate immediately towards the terrific toast. It was described as being made with brioche, served with a scoop of fresh vanilla ice cream and covered with salted caramel. Are you drooling yet? You should be!
Just in case you aren't a sweet person, here's a look at the complete meal from decor to dessert, including the steak frites and a look at the one person that didn't order French Toast.
