What I Ate in Paris, France

FOOD IN PARIS!

This post is a visually stimulating tribute to some of the foods and drinks that I consumed during my trip to Paris.

Coeur de Rumsteak

Coeur de Rumsteak (steak) at Le Verre Siffleur [73 Rue Alésia, 75014 Paris]

According to the beef glossary, the ‘Coeur de Rumsteak’ is the rump heart. I am not sure exactly what that means, but it tasted delicious.


Gratin de Pomme

Gratin de Pomme are potatoes. Really delicious ones.


Monaco

A Monaco is an orange or red summer drink comprised of beer, lemonade, and grenadine syrup. Apparently it is a drink that is  really popular with high schoolers  in Paris.


Canard

 Canard is duck. Yummy, yummy duck.


Tartare Huitre

Tartare Huitre is seafood tartare, served in an oyster shell.


Escargot

Escargot (Snail) at Cèpe et Figue [59 rue Saint-André des Arts, 75006 Paris]

Escargot is a land snail, usually served as an appetizer in Paris.


Macarons

Macarons at Laduree [75 Champs-Élysées, 75008 Paris]

Macarons are a savory delicious treat. I tried macarons from three different places in Paris: Maison Pradier, Laduree, and Gosselin.


To cut back on costs,outside of these delicious meals I mostly ate a lot of baguettes and I drank a lot of bottled water while I was in Paris.
