France may be the realm of the baguette, but us Belgium related people know one thing for sure: there’s more to bread than that.
I have now been in Paris for a whole year, and I will confess I miss some of my typical belgian foods. Where are the fritkots? I can’t seem to find one single fricadelle in this city!
Jokes aside, Paris has so much other treasures to discover; nevertheless, when I heard about L’Improbable and their pistolets my heart skipped a beat. I’ve always loved to little, round, light breads that marked my childhood – if you still don’t know what I’m talking about well it’s time you plan a visit to Pistolet.
I was totally, and pleasantly, surprised by the look of the place. Undeniably different.
L’Improbable definetely isn’t your usual coffee place or snack bar. It’s like an Alibaba cave. A cosy, discreet nook. High stools. A truck. Hanging chairs. Plants. Newspapers on the walls. A lot of light bulbs. And, Pistolets.
As a Belgian, I have to be 100% fair about this. L’Improbable is a lovely place and the pistolets were delicious, with surprising recipes. However, they are slightly different from the pistolets I know.
Nevermind that though, Nico & I ate all of it and enjoyed it. This is definetely a place to add to your bucket list for your next visit in Paris.
