One of the few aspects of my recent trip to Paris that was slightly disappointing was the food, but not for the reason you are probably thinking.
The culinary scene in Paris is phenomenal–I will not argue that. The only reason why I left a little disappointed is that I barely had the opportunity for sit-down meals while I was there. More than likely, I barely ate because I was always on the go–exploring new areas or glued to my camera trying to capture every detail of my time there.
Of course, I had lots of crêpes–especially since they were easy to carry and did not take too long to prepare (and, yes, Mardi Crêpe Club did deliver the fastest crêpe-making experience of the entire trip). I had countless croissants and pains au chocolat (#noregrets). To my surprise, however, I left without eating a full traditional baguette and only ate a single macaroon.
My favorite meal was dinner at Villa Dondelli, an Italian restaurant in the Opéra area where I was serenaded with “Happy Birthday” and a jumbo sparkler atop the fluffiest tiramisu I have ever had. My favorite crêpes came from Happy Café, where I went to for 5 crêpes in 9 days! Yes, they are THAT good (they have outstanding ratings on TripAdvisor)!
Perhaps my next trip will focus on Parisian gastronomy… I better start preparing!
Enjoy a few shots of some of my meals while in Paris–and I say “few” because I really did take very few shots of my meals (which is not exactly normal of this foodie). Try not to get too hungry!
