La Couscoussière is a lovely couscous restaurant on Place de la Contrescarpe. However, the couscous, as fabulous as it was, is not nearly as good as what I’d had at Les Degrés de Notre Dame.

The restaurant is family-owned and the family showed up for lunch. The granddaughter, a little princess who was maybe 2, charmed me by coming by my table to dance! I felt really at home here and I definitely recommend it if you happen to be in this area.

Favorite Dish: Couscous with merguez (lamb) sausage, vegetables such as carrots & zucchini covered in broth, served with chick peas & a spicy sauce. This was accompanied by red wine & water. All this was followed up by a lovely hot, super-sweet Mint Tea. Perfect!
