Paris is a culinary delight with so many different types of cuisine available to choose from. While I spent my first month sampling more ethnic dishes available like fallafel and custard tartlets from Portugal, I spent my second month sampling Parisian specialties like crepes and eclairs. And again, my taste buds were not disappointed!
Although I had a difficult time narrowing it down, these are the 5 best things I ate in Paris during the month of July.
P.S. – If you missed my first round of best eats in Paris, you can find it here.
1. Crepes and cider ~ Breizh Café
There are hardly words to describe how good this dessert crepe is. A fresh cooked crepe with caramelized bananas, drizzled with warm caramel sauce and topped with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream. Have mercy! It was a little slice of heaven on a plate, and I devoured it immediately. I also discovered a new favorite thing while in Paris … cider from Normandy (cidre di Normandie). It’s a light, crisp and refreshing apple cider from France’s Normandy region. It’s served chilled, and is a perfect accompaniment to crepes and galettes (savory crepes). Most places serve cider in a wine glass, but Breizh serves it in a bowl.
Tip: Breizh is quite popular, so be sure to make reservations before you go. It took me 3 attempts to get in, but it was worth the wait.
