I went to Paris last week (for reasons that will become clear later in the week) with Evadne. Otherwise known as the excitable pup that is Get Lippie.
We apparently tweeted a lot about the food and wine because I came back to numerous requests on twitter to do a post on the food – never mind the beauty shopping…
So – in the first of two parts – enjoy Paris – via breakfast, snacks and beaucoup de vin rouge with the Mouthy and Lippie ones.
Well you did ask…..
|Breakfast on arrival. Omelette avec beaucoup de fromage!|
|‘I’m hungry from all that shopping and walking – let’s stop for a snack.’ Tomato salad and red wine. Obviously…|
|Typical sights from our trip. Wine, bread, water, food and a swatched hand!|
|Think I’ll give Kermit a miss thanks..|
|Seeing a pattern here?? Dinner. Bread, water, wine and Pepsi – for the energy doncha know..|
|Peppers stuffed with fresh crab|
|Mozzarella, Tomato, Pesto and bread… sigh|
|See that queue? I like a queue. It’s always a good sign. We’ll be back.|
|Words you want to hear when you walk into a restaurant: ‘Do you have a reservation?’|
Le Relais de L’Entrecote serves three things: steak frites, red wine and desert. And you get two servings of the steak frites. Hence the ‘Relay’. What an absolute genius idea for a restaurant. It was PACKED. On a Tuesday lunchtime. And it was good. SO. GOOD. Bliss.
|Steak Relay. Literally a relay of steak. Vegetarians need not apply. Round one below – rinse and repeat.
|A frequent visitor at our table…|
|Would you like any onion soup with your melted cheese Madame?|

Tomorrow: the shops. The food shops. Not the beauty shops. They’re coming though.
