So, after a day of shopping in Paris, we need to eat! Now Food! Of course you cannot visit Paris without trying their food. France is a gourmet country and there is good food everywhere. So here I would like to share with you this high end supermarket in the chicest department store – La grande Épicerie at Le Bon Marché! There, you can spend hours and hours and hours if you like eating, drinking and cooking! I rented an apartment in Paris when I visited there near montmartre, so I cooked quite often in there and so I bought a lot of food! From yoghurt to juice, to steak and seafood, there are just endless options to choose from.
Hi everyone this is my very first post on food!
As many my friends all know, I don’t like eating at very local eateries and restaurants in Hong Kong, because I eat very slow – fact! And eating in those local eateries (Cha chaan Tang), I often get rushed by the waiters and the people standing and waiting behind your seat – just part of the local culture here! And eating at those local places often made me stress and I prefer to have my meal relaxed….
So, going to Cha chaan tang (茶餐廳) is not my favorite thing but I really like going to those ice chamber (冰室) ! They are like HK style diner and they serve very nice scrambled eggs and thick toasts!
