When in Paris, eat as the locals would do! The cuisine here is subtle, mild and yet able to tickle your tastebuds! When you travel, it’s best to eat the street food – you get the real, authentic taste of not only the food but also of the culture which greatly influences the cuisine there. So what must you try when in Paris? Let’s take you on a food trail!
You should try the macarons here – you’ll forget eating the macarons in the rest of the world! And though the French cuisine is more towards the subtle and bland, when it comes to desserts, boy, do they compromise? No! And the delectable macarons are proof of this! Bitefuls- sized, these pastries taste like heaven once in your mouth!
The unmissable loaf of bread, without which the French cuisine is probably incomplete – the humble baguette is a must try here! And even though you must have tasted baguettes all over the world, the real ones with the best taste are here, in Paris! Crunchy and chewy, these baguettes are best when accompanied by whatever they serve it with, in the cafe you’ve entered! Let’s leave it in their hands?
I really don’t understand what happens to the authentic taste of these sweetums when they step outside France! But when you’re here, you will get served the way you should, with the taste and all intact! The same thing applies to Eclairs – although filled with cream and covered with a layer of chocolate, the éclairs here still manage to be fluffy and crispy in Paris! And yes, a sincere suggestion – don’t attempt eating these anywhere else, they just don’t do the justice to the wonderful piece of heaven!
A total misfit in the impeccable French cuisine, the falafel is that weird yet wonderful member of the family you cannot do without! And the long lines of people waiting outside the falafel carts in Paris are proof to this! And you won’t be disappointed at all – after the long, long wait, you’ll finally have something in had that will tickle your taste buds!
