Paris is unbelievable. Beautiful. Breath-taking. Chic. Romantic. Historic. It was so surreal to be there. I mean, you hear about it, read about it, watch movies about it, see paintings and photos of it; but to actually be there is indescribable.
And the cuisine? Fabulous. Here are a few of my food experiences!
A French hot dog. Two hot dogs wrapped in a fresh baguette and dijon mustard, topped with crispy cheese. The hot dog itself was pretty gnarly. At least the after-taste wasn't so good. Stick an American hot dog in there and it'd be award-winning.
1664 beer. If you know me well you know I love me my beer. Two pints for two Euros? Now that's what I call a bargain!
One simply cannot travel to Paris without trying a crepe. Banana and nutella is my fave. So so so yummy. Every time I've had a crepe in Europe I've thought to myself, I am going to make crepes when I get home. Haven't done it yet, but one of these days. Perhaps over the holidays this year...
Blair had a little mishap and got it all over her face.
The last night we were there we went to a French brew pub. Who know they had brew pubs in Paris, of all places?!! The space was super cool - multi-level with exposed brick, complete with a lounge space. Very sexy. Well, as sexy as a brew pub can get.
We (Mom, Karly, her beau Kyle, and I) shared a pitcher of Ginger Twist beer - an amber beer with hints of ginger, lemon, and lime. Mmmmm.
So so so much fun.
