One of my biggest passions in life (that I daresay might exceed photography) is EATING! If you guys follow me on Snapchat (@karen rosalie), you might have seen glimpses of my gluttony. (That's an understatement, My snapchat consists mostly of me stuffing my face.) So needless to say, one of the most enjoyable things about going to Paris was all the amazing food I got to eat! So without further ado, here are 5 of my food finds while I was in Paris!
Jardin Tuileries, 75001 Paris, France
L'Orangerie is a restaurant inside the Four Seasons. If that doesn't tell you everything you need to know ... This was hands down one of the most memorable meals of my LIFE. I just love to dress up too-- so any restaurant where I get to dress pretty and drink wine is a great restaurant already. We went for my boyfriend's sister's 30th birthday and it was absolute perfection. This is a 1 michelin star restaurant and the service was impeccable. The food was a sensational taste orgasm on every plate. If you guys have one night to splurge in Paris, this would be the spot. It's 100% the dream Parisian experience. You're W E L C O M E.
1 Rue Charles-François Dupuis, 75003 Paris, France
Came here because we had walked past it and it looked hipster and cool. (Two already great reasons to go to this restaurant.) Came here for the avocado toast and acai bowl because I'm a Cali girl and I need my fresh juice and avo toast. 'Nuff said.
3. Restaurant 52
52 Rue du Faubourg Saint-Denis, 75010 Paris, France
This was a restaurant I wish I had gone to again because it's the kind of place that's good enough to go back to twice. (Or thrice.) The food here is amazing. This restaurant is in an up and coming neighborhood so be careful if you're going to go at night, but everything about this place from their wine list to their food is just class A. Oddly enough their tomato bisque was my favorite thing on the menu (the green concoction pictured above) but really you can't go wrong with anything on their menu. And you MUST save room for dessert.
4 rue de Poitou 75003 Paris France
This is an Italian restaurant owned by a husband and wife. The husband was a robust Italian man who had the menu written on a chalkboard which he read through with us. Come here not only to enjoy the bomb Italian food but to experience a warm husband and wife duo who make this dining experience so sweet.
5. Abri Soba
10 Rue Saulnier, 75009 Paris, France
Okay not going to lie, I loved this place so much I came here for lunch AND dinner in the same day. I just need my noodle fix and this place is probably one of the only Japanese places I've ever tried in Paris that really hits home. (Not that I'm Japanese, but can't argue with a good bowl of noodles.) Absolutely get their hot soba and sparkling sake. Two things I'm still dreaming about to this day.
