Wally le Saharien – Paris – France
- Djilla Harhad
More than 30 years that Wally treats us with his saharan couscous. It was initially located rue Le Regrattier on Île Saint-Louis before moving into the 9th arrondissement.
But the concern when you want to be too authentic is to disarm those who are used to a cooking “adapted”. So when they are served a dry semolina, a simple piece of grilled lamb, when they do not liters of broth and a harissa that make you weep, they think they are stolen. It is sometimes the inconvenience that may have suffered this restaurant that has long maintained a unique menu aligning harira, grilled sardine, pigeon pastilla and saharan couscous. There was barely place for dessert.
But your servant (whose ogre reputation is well established!) has never stalled. Although I have not been there for a few years (mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa), I sent few friends who gave me a very positive feedback. It seems to follow his path..
