We drove past this little stand all week & finally stopped on our last day. We couldn't decide which was Pate (patty) was better-- the chicken or beef. Kids wanted to go back for seconds, but we had to catch the ferry.

We tried one of each; chicken, fish and beef. My favourite was the fish. My man liked the beef. Cheap (~$3) and tasty snack for people on the move although I gather eat in is an option too. I still have no idea how to...More
