We planned to pay another visit to Jardin de Tuilleries, then it was off to St Denis again where we stopped and had a quick light bite to eat. This is perhaps the most authentic of french vegetarian food there is: Oeuf mayonnaise.
We also shared a generous slicing of gateau fromage blanc. It looked heavy like cheesecake, but it was really light and melted in your mouth beautifully.
Then we wandered over to St Martin and a little place called passage Brady. It is a narrow street decked with maharajah style chairs and tables by the various Indian and Pakistani restaurant owners all vying for your custom. St Martin is also a location buzzing with student activity.
We stumbled upon a school/community garden. There was so much already growing, the broad beans and potatoes already flowering, lettuces and various herbs. If you look closer you will see a person sleeping on the bench, serene.
I was astonished to come across this patch of sage, the size of my palm!
Then we took a casual stroll along Canal Martin which was surrounded by a number of trendy shops and trendy people.
