Yes, I’m having a Nutella Crepe to end the day

I don’t know what came over me, but I suddenly started craving crepes so I made it happen. I had just one Nutella Crepe to end my full day in Paris at Le Reynou located at 2Bis Quai Megisserie – 75001 Paris.

As you can see from the picture, I attacked the crepe and almost forgot to capture a photo. It was delicious! I think I even made a noise with the first bite. YUM!

Lunch at an iconic Paris monument 

After a wonderful experience all the way up to the top of the Eiffel Tower, I made my way to Millenia 58 Tour Eiffel for lunch which has the address of 6 Avenue Gustave Eiffel 75007 Paris.

I  ended up at a window seat with a great view of the city while enjoying a delicious lunch. Everything was just so yummy that I plan to recreate this meal at home on a rainy, windy and gray day just like I experienced the day I was at the Eiffel Tower. I ate a delicious chilled pasta that was seasoned well and featured shrimp and pomegranate seeds. Next up on the menu was a well seasoned creamy pasta with smoked hake. I ate every bite since I was craving comfort food. Finally, I enjoyed the last course of cheese and bread. I did order a cosmopolitan drink. It was good, but I have had better in the US.

Day two in Paris begins with baked goods

Just across the street from my hotel is this restaurant called Le Zimmer located at 1 place du Chatelet – 75001 Paris. I was eager to get to touring the Eiffel Tower so I ordered something quick: baked goods featuring a croissant and pain au chocolat and hot chocolate. The baked goods were good!

My first meal in the City of Lights

After a decent non-stop flight to Paris, a short nap and a Big Bus tour, I sit down for my first meal at Au Pied de Cochon located at 6, rue Coquilliere – 75001, Paris. The restaurant has been around since 1947.

I ordered the lamb shoulder with pureed white beans and chorizo with a fine glass of red wine.

My sweet finish was a moist chocolate cake and vanilla ice cream.

Since this restaurant’s specialty is pig, should I have ordered a cochon? Yes, but no regrets because I’m in Paris. I’m winning!
