Hi everyone! Today we're continuing my recap of PARIS! There were so many amazing restaurants that I legit gained about 6-7 pounds. I wish I was over exaggerating but I'm not. My work dresses don't fit right. Depressing but the food was totally worth it. French food is just mouth watering, completely satisfying and worth every calorie. I'm not over selling it. Also, I think there's like the most Michelin restaurants in Paris. I never even knew what Michelin was until my boyfriend started taking me to all these delicious spots. Below are a few suggestions. E N J O Y!
1.Les Orchidées: We had the bolognese cappuccino, confited tomatoes with origan and the roasted cod with soya butter
2. ☆☆ L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon Saint Germain We've had Robuchon before in Tokyo and again in London so we're pretty familiar with the menu. Recommended: LA LANGOUSTINE in ravioli truffled with stewed green cabbage, THE BLACK COD marinated in miso, crunchy cucumber on a cream of smoked eggplant and THE LAMB OF MILK in chops with the flower of thyme
3. ☆☆☆ Le Cinq (@ the Four Seasons) French gastronomical cuisine. This one is 3 stars so it is a little pricier. They do offer different tasting menus too but those have limited selections. Try: steamed line cod fish with truffled potatoes and surprisingly the grilled and glazed pigeon. 4. L’Avant Comptoir Paris by Mouth. This restaurant was so extremely fun! It's super small and hard to get reservations. I saw a lot of people just stand at the bar and eat. It's a great local tapas spot where you get a taste of everything. There menus are on the ceiling and the have literally a MOUNTAIN of butter for their customers. We ordered way too many items but everything tasted so good so I don't think you can go wrong there.
Besides seeing all the amazing monuments in Paris that everyone dreams of seeing, the food adventure was just as enjoyable. I've never had so many amuse-bouches (single, bite-sized hors d'oeuvres) before in my life lol and I don't mind it at all. So let's say you pay for like a 3 or 5 course meal, you always end up getting like 2 extra dishes. While I was in Paris, I literally cleaned every single dish off. If I could like it without being judged, I would have.
Thanks for following me on my recap. Next up. London!
