Believe us, canned sardines in oil is the latest food trend. Undeniable proof: all the hip and trendy restaurants are slipping them into their menus, from Café Charlot to Le Lazare, the divine gastronomic house opened by Eric Fréchon.
This very chic small fish, ultimate snobbism to nibble on at home on a toast, is now sold by leading gourmet houses, such as « la Belle-iloise », the ultimate seller for all sardines lovers.
So good news, for upscale Parisian girls and food lovers in general: Belle-iloise has created a sardine box and other pleasures from the sea next to Odéon. And of course we fell in love with this charming venue that is going to boost this adorable little French fish (filled with omega 3, poor in calories, ideal for those who want to keep an healthy diet going).
On the shelves? All their great products, famed sardines, of course, as well as their smooth soup of the sea, their terrific tuna to enhance a tomato sauce in two minutes flat, and let’s not forget their mackerels with mustard. Bonus? They are in cans. So if anyone shows up unannounced at your doot step, and your fridge is empty, you are pretty much all set to present a nice 'apero'.
We love: their deluxe spreads of tuna, green asparagus, mimolette cheese. Perfect for a nice happy hour or a chic club sandwich in front of the TV !
