Europe, family

Paris 2017 (Part Two)

Oh Paris, take me back now.  I love Europe so much.  I’m already planning another trip there next year so I can wine and dine again.  Paris is indeed so charming and getting around the city is quite easy.  I have no problem not speaking a word of French.  Most places, the Parisians speak English and they do not have the snooty attitude.  We are so thankful because we encountered very nice, friendly people on our trip.

La Grande Epicerie de Paris – Arguably the best gourmet market in Paris.  It has everything you desire – fresh produce, pastries, wine and a variety of comestibles.  They even have L’atelier Maison De La Truffe right in the middle of the market.  We had lunch there and it was one of my favourite meals in Paris.

I forgot the exact names of these cheeses, but we had a bit of everything from truffled brie to goat cheese.  They’re all so tasty!

Holy smokes, killing me with this ravioli with summer truffles!

Like even the water is so pretty!

All types of teas – I’m just so overwhelmed (in a good way) with their products.

So many types of mustards, too bad I don’t use mustard that often, if not I’d definitely buy some.

Le Bon Marché – This escalator has such an interesting pattern and it’s so gorgeous!

Hermés – Oh how I wish those two orange boxes are for me. :)

Juicy, sweet mini strawberries are the best snacks on a hot, sunny day.

Notre Dame de Paris – More than a historical monument, this cathedral is considered to be one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture.

Admission to get in is free but the line-up is long so we didn’t go in.

La Droguerie du Marais – The one thing I desperately wanted to try in Paris was their crepes.  Love the crispy ends on this tomato and cheese buckwheat crepe.

Soooo cheesy!
But I’m still partial to the sweet crepes or anything with Nutella.

There were a few places we wanted to visit and this was one of them.

The best falafel sandwich ever!  It contains crispy chickpea fritters, creamy hummus, pickled red cabbage, cucumbers, fried eggplant and THAT SAUCE!

Who doesn’t love a carousel?

Whoever took this pic of us is a genius, we all look as tall as a supermodel.

Another impressive department store La Galeries Lafayette – Many people refer it to the Harrods of Paris

This is the best place for window shopping.  The most luxurious department store with endless shops circling each floor.  I love that ceiling!
My favourites are these beautiful pastries.  Are you drooling yet?

Look at these vibrant coloured spices!

Every time we look back at our Paris trip, we secretly wished that we should add in one more day to our itinerary.  But we’re too greedy because we wanted to squeeze another city on our trip.  Therefore, I’m looking forward to my next trip to Paris.

I have another Michelin-Star Restaurant review soon, so make sure you check back soon.  Have a great week!

    I don’t blame you for going back this year! What a great time! The food looks absolutely delicious. I’ve never seen mini strawberries and their water bottles are sleek & sophisticated. I’m so glad I asked you about the language, because this girl told me I would have to know French. Great pics Jo!
