Paris: Foodie Tip 2




I’ve been to this romance three times so far, but I never stop longing to go back and walk down Champs-Élysées, pop in a random boulangerie or pâtisserie, visit my favorite labyrinth of cosy tiny streets at Montmartre, drink wine at a brasserie while enjoying the view of Notre-Dame… I could make this list endless, but let me give you some practical tips. This week look out for the ten best foodie tips for Paris! Here comes the second tip.

Tip 2

Bouillon Racine


Bouillon Racine Paris

It was opened in 1906 as a canteen kitchen. Elegant art nouveau; antique furniture and interior; mirrored walls; cosy atmosphere; good, but busy service (make sure you book ahead or arrive early); proper, homemade food. Make sure you order some escargot (snail) for your starter, a spit-roasted suckling pig for your main and for dessert – homemade sherbet!

P.S. Check out their art nouveau chairs! There were for sure some workers sitting on those chairs some one hundred years ago…
