French food – you can never go wrong with French food. From French onion soup, des escargots, duck in all forms, croissants and the over 1000 different pastries. French cuisine is everything!
So while backpacking on a budget, here’s a few delicacies I tried out and would highly recommend. We did not do any gourmet or over the top restaurants. No snails either. I would eat snails only if nobody aforementioned it. That being said I am yet to taste snails a.k.a escargots.
Where:Paris Street Food
Street food vendors will offer you crêpes both sweet and savory. Here you can also find macaroons,waffles, croissants and beignets. I had a sweet crêpe with nutella and coconut, I watched the whole process of making one as well. For some reason that video will not upload.
What: Pave de Rumsteak
This is a quaint little restaurant on 125 Avenue Gambetta which was very close to our Airbnb. The decor is so good it is almost impossible to focus on the food. The ambience was a 10/10. A brick wall wainscotted with an imitation of a wine cellar. Dark stained wood with pops of burgundy and forest blue fabric. The food was amazing as well. The fish was served in a butter sauce that I am hoping to replicate at home someday soon. We noticed some menus are not translated in English and trying to pick what to eat is like reading a Shakespearean play.
Where: Les Relais d’Alsace – Taverne Karlsbrau
What: Duck à l’orange du miel
The food here was amazing. This restaurant is just behind Gare du Lyon train station. It’s a casual set up with amazing service and perfect banquet seating for large groups. I particularly loved my duck a l’orange du miel (duck in orange and honey sauce). They also have the best cocktails. There goes my food experience in Paris. For more on the Paris series check out:
