Authentic Marseilles Bouillabaisse Mar 22, 2013
The next best place for having authentic Marseilles Bouillabaisse in Paris if one is unable to travel to Southern France. Bouillabaisse is a traditional Provencal fish stew originating from the port city of Marseilles. In the past, it used to be a dish for the poor made with leftover unsold seafood. Nowadays, it is given a spin and turned into a fancy dish as lots of seafood went into preparing it and it contained saffron, the most expensive spice in the world.

A course of Marseilles bouillabaisse consist of a seafood mousse appetizer, bouillabaisse broth with rouille and finally the bouillabaisse with fillets from five different types of local fishes. Local fishes used here were weever, red gurnard, redfish, conger and gilthead bream. Rouille is a sauce made with egg yolks, olive oil, garlic, chili pepper powder and salt. The entire course was extremely filling for me though I can't stop munching on the freshly baked breads. Crispy baguette went so well with the appetizing bouillabaisse soup and rouille. Freshly grated gruyère cheese enhanced the flavor of the soup.

This place also offers a variety of fresh seafood such as lobsters, langoustines, crabs, oysters, mussels, clams, sea urchins and etc arranged in a decadent display. The restaurant was cozy, spacious, well decorated and exuded a very upscale vibe. Service was excellent. Waiters and waitresses were helpful and efficient. An overall magnificent dining experience. A complete course of Marseilles bouillabaisse cost around 38.90 Euro.
