The trip of a lifetime! I was so rejuvenated attending a yoga retreat in Italy with my mom, but getting to spend a few days in Paris with her afterward was the icing on the cake. It is truly a gorgeous city, and the food? Nothing short of divine. This is a compendium of the places I visited – and the places I dream of visiting the next time I’m there!
L’Avenue – a typical Parisian atmosphere. This is where the ladies lunch! It is an upmarket and expensive option. I loved the salad starters and they have some really clean options of the main menu.
Miznon: My fav lunch in Paris. healthy organic, pitas, fresh meats, amazing grilled cauliflower, best sweet potato and divine broccoli. The tahini sauce is incredible. Get the veggies for sure.
Kitchen Galerie Bis: Fancy, but absolutely divine
Nanashi: Healthy Japanese in a great area
L’Entrecote: In the 8th. Best steak and chips. It’s indulgent but so worth it if you love meat and red wine.
Ralph’s – amazing for brunch
Hotel Costes – quite fancy, but I just love the ambience. Great for drinks before/after dinner!
Rose Bakery: a lovely little cafe with several locations around the city. My mum and I loved their granola and porridge.
Les Editeurs: an absolute gem for brekkie
Cafe Charlot: I just loved this! One of the city’s original cafes. A lovely option for some eggs and coffee in the morning.
Pierre Herme: the ultimate chocolate and pasty shop. Just divine.
Chez Janou: divine dinner spot. Great red wine. I enjoy the fish and veg option. And they are famous for their chocolate mousse – if you want to treat yourself. You know I believe in indulgence for a healthy life!
Le Comptoir du Relais: at Hotel Relais Saint Germain
Semilla: most divine gourmet Parisian lunch in the best area
Cafe Pinson: amazing healthy cafe with lots of plant based options
Hotel Amour: gorgeous outside lunch vibe
L’as du Fallafel: best Israeli food on a Sunday in the Marais
Ferdi: a favourite for dinner
I also just loved grabbing some fresh fruit. I was amazed how many local fresh fruit markets there were. You walk so much in Paris and always need a little on-the-go bite – snack on some fresh berries and figs like I did!
