BECAUSE I'M PAYING my other home Paris a visit next week.
To celebrate that here is part 2 of my Paris guide.
Ferdi, 31 Rue Mont-Thabor, 75001: One of my favorite restaurants in Paris. The restaurant is really small with a special interior and delicious food. Try their mini cheeseburger, which is apparently a fashion crowd favorite at fashion week. The service is not always good, and you’re not always treated that well, if one of their regular costumers arrive and need your table.
Le Pain Quotidien, 8 Marché Saint-Honoré, 75001: Delicious place to have your breakfast. Organic bread, jam, white/dark Nutella, etc. You should also try their warm croissant with cheese and ham.
Mezzo di Pasta, 164 Rue Montmartre, 75002: This pasta chain you can find all over town. If you like pasta and need to find a quick lunch Mezzo is ideal. You receive fresh take-away pasta of your choice.
Le Petit Marché, 9 Rue de Béarn, 75003: Very delicious french cuisine with a touch of Asia. The restaurant is situated in a petite cozy street in Marais. Try the yummy tuna.
L’as du Falafel, 34 Rue des Rosiers, 75004: You find Paris’ best falafel here. Delicious produce: fried eggplant among others.
Café Dôme, 4-6 Rue de Rivoli, 75004: Sit down at this café in Marais. I prefer to sit outside in the sun if the allows it. If not place yourself inside in their nice sofas. I eat the scrimp salad EVERY time. You won’t find it better.
Les Comtoirs des Archivess, 41 Rue des Archives, 75004: This café in the heart of Paris is specially ideal at night, where you’re able to sit outside under their heat lamps. The food is not overly amazing, but the café itself is very nice.
Breakfast in America, 4 Rue Malher, 75004: Slightly atypical to eat American food in Paris, but nevertheless delicious to get blueberry pancakes and other American specialties, specially when you’re hungover.
Berko Cupcakes, 23 Rue Rambuteau, 75004: At Berko you find the cutest mini cupcakes in Paris.
Sugarplum, Rue du Cardinal Lemoine, 75005: Delicious cakes and homemade icetea.
Café de Flore, 172 Boulevard Saint-Germain, 75006
Café les Deux Margots, 6 Place Saint-Germain-des-Prés, 75006:
Sit down at one of these iconic cafés if you want to sniff a bit of stardust from Claude Monet, Jean-Paul Sastre and Simone de Beauvoir, but expect the prices to be pretty high.
Sushi Folie’s, 80 Boulevard Raspail, 75006: Very good Asian lunch place, if you’re looking for a cheap lunch. I’ve sat at their plastic chairs numerous times eating amazing sushi.
Chez André, 12 Rue Marbeuf, 75008: Traditional French kitchen with fantastic oysters if the season allows it.
Café Sud, 12 Rue de Castellane, 75008: Delicious French food with a touch of Asia.
L’Avenue, 41 Avenue Montagne, 75008: Sit outside at this café and enjoy the sight of the many stylish people on their way to shopping at Chanel and Christian Dior among others.
Buddha Bar, 8 bis Rue Boissy d’Anglas, 75008: The food inspired by Asia is heavenly and the surroundings with a giant Buddha is worth an experience. Try the amazing stir-fried tuna.
Chartier, 7 Rue du Faubourg Montmartre, 75009: You will probably have to wait in a long line outside this restaurant that have room for approximately 200 guests. Here you will experience the real Parisian mood with stressed out waiters and lots of French costumers.
Hôtel Amour, 8 Rue Navarin, 75009: Classic French cuisine and a very interesting interior. Sit on the cozy patio. It’s a hotelrestaurant and I’ve heard that the hotel itself should be worth a visit too.
Fuxia, 25 og 51 Rue des Martyrs, 75009: Delicious Italian café and restaurant chain. At the café you can almost only get amazing pasta dishes. The other part is more of a restaurant.
Pizza Tivoli, 5 Rue La Fayette, 75009: This restaurant has a special place in my heart. It is situated almost exactly next to my apartment in Paris, which meant that I ate there quite often. Nice Italian food and great pizzas.
Refuge des Fondus, 17 Rue des 3 Frères, 75018: Fondue and wine in babybottles. A must-visit! The restaurant is very small and typically filled with American tourists but the concept is so weird that you have to try it.
Bertillion, Île Saint-Louis: Paris’ best ice cream! Bertillion HAS to be tasted. I’m especially
digging the apricot and peach ice cream,
Boulangeries: The Paris bakeries are cheap and delicious! A baguette costs approximately 1-2€, but still they taste so good!
