First Time Trying TRADITIONAL FRENCH FOOD in Paris France! OLDEST Bakery in Paris

  • Published on Feb 2, 2019
  • I went to Paris a long time ago, but I thought I'd come back and do a proper food tour! On this food adventure, I ate some amazing pastries, and one of my favorites was the pistachio escargot pastry, but I still love the original flakey and buttery croissants. At Chez Fernand, you'll have some of the riches foods there like the legendary Boeuf bourguignon defiantly get that because the beef is incredibly tender. I had the best soufflé at La Cuisine de Philippe you can get a savory one and when you need something sweet you can get the chocolate soufflé. If you want something cheesy, go to Pain Vin Fromage, it's a great experience because you get to cook your cheese and meats on a mini stove.

    we don't usually cook the meats when you do a raclette. you eat them as they are on the platter. but i guess you do you :)

    Technically under copyright law, you’re not allowed to show the Eiffel Tower at night. I think you’re safe though.

    So glad you got to see Notre Dame before the fire. Whenever I was in Paris, I'd orient myself to where I was in the city by Notre Dam'e spire, just like I used to do in NYC before the Twin Towers fell. Love your videos.

    Notre Dame Cathedral @ 10:29. I wonder if it will be like seeing the original Twin Towers in movies (in) that we will be making mental notes every time we see it. Plans are to rebuild & with now 1 Billion dollars pledged no doubt they will. But it will forever be changed in our hearts & minds.

    I was in Paris in 2005. I had the best eclair ever in a pastry shop across from the modern art museum. Our guide took us there specifically for them, I wish I had written down everywhere I ate.. how was your experience with the people. In 2005 as a American my group and even I when I was alone had issues with the locals hearing us talk and just bad mouthing Americans.

    We love to eat at a little bistro on a side street parallel to the Eiffel tower. Its gorgeous food and the plat du jour is surprisingly cheap for the area. We ate on the street and just soaked up the feel of the city.

    I went to Paris in high school with my Senior class. When we finally arrived, we went to a little bistro who served us a pre planned menu. I don't know who's sick idea it was to serve a group of American teenagers who just came off of a 16 hour flight, onion quiche and water, but it was not cool.
