Dinner chez Pramil

We first dined at Pramil restaurant in December 2009. The meal was excellent but the experience was muted by the fact that none of the staff spoke English and I was only half a day into refreshing my schoolboy French.

Last year, a colleague of Maggie’s dined there on our recommendation, twice!

When we arrived for dinner, it was clear that we were in for a happy time. The menu was tantalisingly beyond our experience and my Frenglish was not out of place.

Here is a summary of our meals.

Maggie chose:

  • Pan-fried suckling lamb livers with baby courgette flesh and flowers, mushrooms and jus
  • Scallops in a cream and white wine sauce with morels, potato slices and wilted spinach
  • Frozen nougat

I chose:

  • Creamed white asparagus with foie gras ice cream
  • Grilled Iberico pork chop with braised beetroot, carrot and a whole small onion
  • Strawberries with cucumber sorbet and olive oil

Our waiter guided us to a red wine from Rully AOC in the Côte d’Or. It was light and its flavours worked with all of the savoury dishes.

This was one of the great meals of our lives, all for 122 euros ($190).

Alas, I have only one photo of the food to share with you – taken outside the restaurant a few hours before our meal. We switched to taking indoor photos with the iPad after we viewed the disappointing results from using our camera at Pramil. We’ll get some more food pics next time we are in Paris and dine at Pramil! (Well, we can dream can’t we?)

About rmgtravelsandfood

Maggie and I are both in our early 60s and live in Melbourne, Australia. This blog is devoted to our shared passions for travel and fine dining at home. As cooks, we are skilful and adventurous within a framework of mainly traditional ingredients and techniques, and we aim to prepare nutritious food that looks good and tastes delicious. Our evolving repertoire is influenced by both our travels and Melbourne's vibrant food culture. While we are young enough, our priority travel destinations are overseas, although we do spend a few weekends each year exploring south-eastern Australia. As travellers, we are most comfortable with a combination of organised and independent touring. Our first overseas journey together was to Italy in the northern autumn of 2008. We later travelled in France (2009), Spain (2011), Singapore and Cambodia (2012/13). All trips from 2014 onwards are documented in this blog.
