Paris Diaries

Posted in : Food, Restaurants, Sweet Things, Travel on by : Reema Tags: , , , ,

Paris in December is slowly becoming an annual tradition for our little family. Definitely not the best time of year to visit but the city of light is especially sparkly around Christmas, despite the cold and rain.

Any trip we take revolves entirely around food and we certainly couldn’t go wrong in Paris. It was little A’s first trip to Paris and macarons and crepes featured high on his list (and ours too!)

Here’s a quick snapshot of the beautiful things we saw and the delicious food we ate! ;)

We stayed at the beautiful Intercontinental Le Grand near Palais Garnier. This huge Eiffel Tower made entirely of Laduree macarons greeted us in the lobby upon our arrival…

 Lunch at Le Souffle, a little restaurant off Rue St Honore serving the most delicious savoury and sweet souffles. Pictured here is the Henry IV souffle with a creamy chicken and mushroom sauce. Divine!

Christmas shopping at Galeries Lafayette whilst admiring the dazzling Christmas ‘tree’ under the magnificent dome.

Lunch at the famous Cafe de la Paix at the Intercontinental. We indulged in these gigantic oysters. Yum.

 As well as  a warm and cheesy French Onion Soup.

 When in Paris…..eat falafels!

Our favourite, L’as du Falafel was closed on the day we were in Marais so we had to make do with Mi-va-mi instead. The verdict – good but we will definitely be sticking to L’as du Falafel next trip.

 Delicious buckwheat crepes at Breizh Cafe, a creperie in Marais that we discovered on our last trip to Paris. I ordered the Norwegian with smoked salmon, sour cream and chives. Yum.

Followed by a simple and decadent chocolate crepe.

Despite all the yummy food, it was all about the splendid tower for little R. 🙂
