Paris's new Mediterranean restaurant is our favourite rendezvous for artisanal focaccia sandwiches.
Paris offers a plethora of dining establishments, with a new one seemingly opening every week, and this week we discovered Pepita, a wonderful little restaurant in the Saint-Germain neighbourhood. The casual restaurant boasts an outdoor dining area from where you can have a front row seat to some great people watching while enjoying the Mediterranean cuisine on offer. Creamy burrata cheese served with sundried tomatoes and olives, pizza, and big hearty salads are on the menu, though the best thing to order here has to be the house sandwiches. Made with artisanal focaccia bread baked on-site, the sandwiches are filled with yummy fillings such as mortadella, truffle ham and burrata cheese, and homemade olive paste and pesto verde. Make sure you also leave room for the tiramisu made with organic coffee, it is the perfect sweet note to end your meal and has the perfect biscuit to cream ratio. It is our perfect lazy weekend lunch spot.
