Paris Eats

So here are todays eats so far!, we went to have a hot chocolate at the Famous Angelina's I would say so so, far too sweet for me, and a rip of !, if you ever read Jamies blog Life's a feast her Macaroons look a thousand times better! the two cups of hot chocolate and 4 tiny macaroons cost a whopping 20 Euros!

Don't judge a book by its cover they look great but don't taste as good as they look!

You learn something new every day my hubby told me while sitting there that the macaroons in Tuticorin in Tamil Nadu South India taste a lot better. In fact this city is known as the macaroon capital of India and are made with cashew nuts, oh I must try on my next visit to India!, he used to eat them in his school days, how cool!

Lunch was better ...

French Onion Soup, I must say this was yummy and very filling with all the bread soaked inside, great for cool weather like today

croque madame

the last picture is a chocolate in the shape of cheese how cool is that!

We made baguettes in the flat tonight and hubby made rice, its so expensive here I feel for the Parisians, the US is cheaper in my opinion.
I also brought filter coffee to make in the flat in the morning, will get the crossaint from the bakery but not paying 3.75 Euros each day for a tiny coffee, in Rome a cappucinno at the bar was 1 Euro!

Love and hugs from the beautiful city of Paris



  1. The food certainly looks great. Paris is always very very expensive, even in the 1970's so nothing changes.

  2. I'm so inspired by how fabulously you are eating right now!

  3. I want that cheese shaped chocolate round. lol. a good way to trick the mind and eye.

  4. Good that I am not a sweet person then, grin....although I like to bake sweets. I'd rather have that french onion soup any day!

  5. I think if you were earning a Parisian salary it might not seem as expensive. The exchange rate is definitely not on your side right now! When I lived there, I didn't earn much but led a pretty good life.. I guess because I wasn't converting currency in my head which is hard not to do when you are on holidays.. And Angelina's is lovely for the experience, but yes quite $$. It is not the place to eat macarons - go to Laudrée or Elysée Lenôtre.... Enjoy the rest of your eating!!

  6. My mouth is watering! That onion soup looked incredible! Enjoy, girlie!

  11. When in Paris, the splurge on hot chocolate and not so great macaroons are worth it. This time you are paying for the experience :-)
