吃 / Food
The costs of food are no lower than those of London, but the quality far outruns the latter. Take simple bread for example. French bread is so much more tasty.
Super yummy chicken bagel.
Salmon baguette. I often picnic with others in parks. But even simple food such as sandwiches give me a great sense of satisfaction.
One day I walk in the renowned restaurant La Coupole. In a few words, it is not only one of the largest restaurants in Paris but also a gathering place for famous writers and artists such as Hemingway, Sartre, Falkner, Picasso etc.
It is an art gallery inside too.
Green salad and bread.
The main course is curry lamb, with fruit sauce and side dishes. This meal costs me an arm and a leg, but it's a very unique life experience.
La Rotonde is only a few steps away from La Coupole, and it is another restaurant/cafe loaded with history.
Across from La Coupole is Le Select. My low-key tour guide said this restaurant is more popular with Americans.
It'd be a shame not to try desserts in Paris. The sweets here look so tempting and French people eat a lot of them, but Parisians are so slim and good-looking.
Eclairs come in various colors.
How can I leave Paris without trying macarons?
With Easter coming, the display windows are decorated with creative forms of chocolate.
This is chocolate made based on works by famous artists.
Parisians want both high tech and sunshine.
Sitting in an outdoor cafe is not just about looking at people, but also about being gazed at.
This is the celebrated Les Deux Magots. You'd better be well-dressed and come sit here for a whole afternoon.
Cafe de Flore, where you can find stories of well-known writers and artists.
