Best Pizza in Paris? Alice Pizza

Funny how once an address gets "discovered", everybody and his uncle takes a stab at writing an article on it, pretty much all within the same week. I had lunch today at Alice Pizza, a cozy little place just steps away from the Anvers metro station and Paris' red-light disctrict. The charming owner, Tahar is half-Brazilian and half Algerian, and discovered his love of pizza in Parma, where he received some training from a world famous pizza maker. The pie I took, with a gorgonzola/marzipan cream, rocket, a raspberry/balsamic vinegar, and shaving of aged Parmesan was one of the best, probably the best I've had for a very, very long time. After, to digest, a little trot to visit with Denise Acabo at her shop L'Etoile d'Or, where I got some Genin caramels in gingembre, framboise and vanille, and some Bernachon caramel milk chocolate bars. For those who don't know this shop, it's a interesting experience. Denise is over 70, and in the 36 years she's been running the shop, she's dressed like a schoolgirl (plaid skirt, pigtails and schoolgirl tie) and is a real character, passionate about what she does, and tutoying everyone who comes into the shop.
