La Réclame, Paris

One of my favorite brunches in town, in an intimate 50s inspired set somewhere between a grocery shop and a doll house, La Réclame will surprise you with home-made grandma-style recipes using regional products such as the “florins“, warm little round breads stamped with a seal and served with butter, jam and praliné spread… hungry already? keep reading!

Schwartz’s Deli, Paris

Here comes a major cornerstone of American food in Paris! Schwartz’s Deli is one of the first NYC Delicatessen established in Paris in 2009, with 3 adresses all serving cheesecakes, milk-shakes and pastrami. The one I like to go to is the one in the 17th, avenue Niel where the decor is typically American with red leather sofas and checkered tablecloths. Continue reading “Schwartz’s Deli, Paris”

Kintaro, Paris

In the midst of the Japanese quartier around Opera, stands Kintaro, one of my favorite cantines when it comes to Japanese food from ramen to soba through tempura and gyoza! The menu is wide, the noodle soup list endless and the food absolutely yummy whatsoever. Continue reading “Kintaro, Paris”

Pizza di Loretta, Paris

There are actually different adresses in Paris but what’s common is that they all serve pizza “al taglio” and that they all display a typical Little Italy setting with brick walls, black & white family pictures and a sheer tiles floor. Continue reading “Pizza di Loretta, Paris”

Veggie curry over red rice – Curry de légumes et riz rouge

I actually got the idea for this recipe after having lunch at Rice Trotter, a small place dedicated to rice lovers which I highly recommend! They specialize in all sorts of curry, with a menu changing everyday, served on top of delicious rice, from basmati rice to Thai red rice though Italian black rice. I decided I’d go for some butternut as a base, mixed with some coconut and indian spices served with some red rice and it turned out amazingly good!

Formaticus, Paris

Open last June, Formaticus operates as a restaurant and a grocery shop dedicated to cheese and I absolutely love it! If you’re not a big cheese fan, don’t even bother reading this post. For the others, make sure you don’t miss out on this place! You think you know cheese? you think you’ve had good cheese plates in the past? Forget all of it and run to Formaticus where hundreds of cheese sorts, straight from the producers, await to be discovered.

Tsubame, Paris

A little piece of Japanese heaven has set foot rue de Douai in 2013 and I keep going back to it every time I yearn for some Izakaya and Japanese tapas. Continue reading “Tsubame, Paris”
