Exploring the Parisian Cuisine is like having a romantic affair with food. It is filled with Baguette, Croissant, cheese and champagne; all a Man’s delight.


It’s amazing how Paris; the city of lights, is also the melting point of International cuisine as traditionally each region has its own distinctive cuisine. In the 17th quarter one would Northern cuisine which is rampant with cheese and in the 18th quarter an African residing in France would get access to some African delicacies in restaurants such as La Braise Dorée which is a French-African fusion restaurant, offering French and Senegalese classics. Being a romantic person, while researching on the French gastronomy, I could not help but imagine myself in a romantic escapade visiting the cheese monger; Laurent Dubois in Paris or having a relaxed Parisian dinner at the restaurant; Le Bistro Paul Bert which is known for its affordable dinner option in a casual, relaxed atmosphere.

To my fellow vegetarians who once in a while or perhaps everyday would opt for some junk food the East Side Burgers which is best known for its vegan burgers is highly recommended. For a taste of fresh produce, a visit to Alain Passard in his restaurant L’Arpège located in 7th arrondissement, would be the perfect choice as he creates phenomenal dishes using ingredients grown in one of his three gardens. In the 11th arrondissement in Paris, the restaurant; Soya Cantine, is renowned as an institution for organic gastronomy which is evident in their menu below on the left. Both restaurants offer a great choice of food at varying prices and L’Arpège being more expensive as show on their menu  below.
