Le Bistrot Paul Bert – Bastille
As we were staying in Bastille, we decided to check out Le Bistrot Paul Bert. We really wanted to try steak and fries, a dish that is quintessentially Parisian. And Paul Bert was quite a popular Bistro for both visitors and locals for cote de boeuf as well as their frites.
Creperie Bretonne – Bastille
I’ve always wanted to try crepes in Paris. It’s a very french thing to do, non?
Le Petit Marche – Le Marais
This little restaurant is in Le Marais and is casually set up with mismatching tables and chairs and benches. Contrary to some peoples’ reviews, we found the service in Le Marais to be casual, friendly, and kind (considering we couldn’t read the menu properly).
Le Villaret – Paris
On our last night in Paris we dined at Le Villaret, which is in the 11th arrondissement. A slightly more upmarket restaurant compared to the casual bistros we had dined at during our stay in Paris, it was a warm and bright spot on an otherwise dark street.
Chez Janou – Paris
Janou was popular with both locals and visitors, and my brother told me about this place some time ago. He always left the restaurant with a happy tummy and a happy heart.
Maison Karrenbauer – Bastille
As we were based in a private apartment in the 11th arrondissement for a little while, we went out in search of a local bakery to bring back some fresh pastries and bread for breakfast every morning.
Montmartre – 18th arrondissement
We took a stroll up to Montmartre (18th arrondissement) as we heard that the views of Paris from Basilique du Sacre-Couer was impressive. We walked there. It felt like a long time, and my feet ached. Up, up, up we hiked.
We visited the Louvre to soak in a bit of culture and history while in Paris. I confess that I’m not a huge museum buff, however I couldn’t ignore one of the best museums in the world.
Paris – some random photos
We have a lot of memories from Paris, and some of them are random memories that make me smile everytime I think of them…
