Le bar à bulles… or the trial of my life! It’s been a while since I’ve seen my best friend so we decided to go to a brunch she knew. The appointment was next to the Moulin Rouge. It’s without counting on my flying skills that made me win a beautiful cast and crutches – Christmas in advance! What matter with today’s brunch will you tell me? This charming brunch is located in a small paved alley on the left of the mill, at the top of steep stairs. But hey, you have to deserve it! Lire la suite

La Bouteille d’Or – Paris 5

During my Parisian holidays playing tourist (yes, I’ve spent my holidays in Paris), my friend and I decided to visit the famous Musée d’Orsay. It was also on this occasion that was taken this wonderful shot which is on this blog homepage. In short, we had planned a studious afternoon but the morning was ending and hunger roaming like a wild animal. And you know that I’m weak… Lire la suite

Sunday is Brunch-day! I have proposed to a friend to enjoy the opportunity but the day before we meet has turned it into a gathering with other friends. I’m not complaining because one of her friends had the perfect address in mind, a little restaurant downstairs that made delicious burgers. Unfortunately, we haven’t tasted the burgers because the brunch formula changes every weekend but the one we tried was very good too. That being said, let’s go for Les Artistes! Lire la suite

Tonight, I meet my friend for our traditional tour of Italian restaurants after a hard day’s work. This time, our journey brings us near Bastille, in the 4th arrondissement. It’s a small restaurant named Pizza e Fichi that has been opened for less than a year. As soon as we get inside, we are transported to Italy. Here, Italian is the official language right up to the kitchen and that warms us instantly (and there is no connection with the radiator next to our table). Lire la suite

Today, back to basics or, more precisely, where it all began: Cours de Vincennes. It’s Friday night, I’m finally leaving my job and my friend comes out of meeting without news of those who were supposed to join her for a drink. I admit, I wasn’t in a mood to drink with them in the 10th because my week had been quite demanding. But it’s Friday night and I still want to celebrate the beginning of the weekend. Lire la suite

Le Palinuro. This is the perfect example of why I created this blog. I went there over a year ago with a friend and we forgot it. I mean we remembered that we ate very well there but we didn’t remember the location or the name.

When you are lucky enough to live in Paris, you don’t enjoy it as much as for holidays. It’s also true when you work near a touristic place. It took me a long time to realize that I was working close to the Champ de Mars. And it’s precisely (or almost) at the corner of the rue de Suffren and the avenue de la Motte Piquet that I take you today. Lire la suite

Friday 13th, concert at the Olympia with my sister. Great opportunity to gain strength before screaming like crazy girls until we lose our voice! The appointment is given on the other side of the Place de l’Opéra to discover a Korean restaurant, a classic when I eat with my sister. Tonight, we’re betting on Dochilak. The choice is made on the decoration: very sober with lots of light, tables and block seats but enhanced with turquoise cushions. Lire la suite

Let’s head to Mouton-Duvernet (or Denfert-Rochereau) for a dinner full of emotions to see a friend I haven’t seen for a while. As always, I try to find a geographical common ground and suggest a small list of specialty to choose. So here we are on our way to Kakdougui, a small Korean discovery. Not very Korean a name? It should be pronounced Kaktugui and it’s the name of a Korean recipe based on white radish.
