Let Us Eat

May 16, 2016

Who doesn’t love taking obnoxious photos of their food? I can’t help it. Especially when you go to a nice restaurant and they place the food on the plate so artistically.

I also have a new found love for cooking. I told you before I would love to include food recipes and cooking on the blog but I am way too excited to eat food. I don’t have the patience to set the lighting and take million photos when all I want to do is enjoy.

As the theme has been Paris, and Paris is the culinary capitol of the world… here is your taste of Paris. LET_US_EAT_food_paris_blog_seafood_escargot_meals

Eat like a Local

Whether I travel to Asia or Europe I try to open my mind to how locals eat and follow accordingly. Avoiding the typical fast-food franchises. However when we landed in Paris it was a cold rainy day and we were looking for somewhere to duck inside for warmth and there it was… Chipotle!

So yes, the first Parisian meal was Chipotle. Oh well, we don’t have Chipotle in Switzerland so I stuffed my face with glee.

I made up for it though with tons of seafood, fish and escargot.

Well, I was told a couple times that the chef refuses to cook anything past medium done… so I tried one medium steak that was practically rare so unless you are about that life I’d advise to stay away from the red meat. I got a bit sick that night.

Drink and Eat More

Enjoy a nice glass of wine and eat forever. Every good meal last hours.


I even managed to eat a salad or two.

Baba Au Rhum is a small little cake that is extremely sweet and you pour liquor over.

    Wow, all those meals look so delicious!! And I’m really surprised Chipotle is in France! I didn’t realize it already hopped the ocean and sprung up in other countries.

    I should have not clicked on this post…it made me want to lick my screen. I agree about eating like a local, I try to do it as much as I could whenever I travel with the exception when we were in Cambodia, the food just didn’t sit right with my husband’s tummy so we ended up eating at the hotel throughout our stay. 🙁

    I completely agree – restaurant food is often too beautifully presented NOT to photograph! Funnily enough, the escargots look the most impressive here and I’ve not even tried them before haha 🙂

    Wherever I go, I want to try some traditional food, I’m really opend to new things and enjoy most of the flavours, so I got reall hungry looking a this wonderul colection of food pics. I remember having this great onion soup in Paris.
    The only exception I made was one time in China when I really got tired of plain rice and cabage after a week and treded it for a pate of french fries for one night (and I’m not even big fan of french fries!)

    Have funtistic futre food experiences 😀
