I have a Friday night “date night” ritual with my boyfriend and normally it involves me choosing a restaurant from my list and going there for dinner. This time, it was my boyfriend who wanted to choose a place and so I welcomed that thought with open arms and an empty stomach! He did some digging through LaFourchette (yes, this place is on it = they take reservations!) and chose a restaurant that was small, intimate but in an area that I love (which is currently the 2ème) and Bonpot is what he found! It’s very small so reservations are a must! But it’s a really cute place with great Korean food that you can enjoy in a comfortable setting.

Whenever it’s possible, especially during school vacation, I try my best to have lunch with boyfriend who works in the fancy 8ème (just like me) off of the Champs-Elysées. Finding places to eat around here can be tricky consider our budgets aren’t very high. But there are some places like Motto Burger that can be accesible to smaller budgets and delivers great fusion flavours of France and Japan that will make your stomach sing!

My boyfriend is pretty happy that I’m putting his recommendation of Krua Thai on The List… but why? Because it’s small but intimate, family-run (=friendly) and the food is great (no lining up included!). I love trying to find hidden gems like this and I hope you will get a chance to enjoy it too!

Saturday morning, the sun is [surprisingly] shining, the fall wind is in the air… brunch at Marcel awaits! It’s a cozy, industrial chic restaurant that does everything but my main purpose today was to try their brunch. Come here at any time during the day (you can make reservations here!) and their fait maison (homemade) approach is unlikely to disappoint.

In the 2ème arrondissement, down an alleyway, there’s a tiny place called Mr. Zhao, a restaurant that specializes in BiangBiang noodles (thick) from Xi’an. It’s interior is very much Swedish design with touches of China. The food was yummy and bursting with spicy flavours. This contrast of simplicity and boldness will lure you in!

Le Marché des Enfants Rouges is one of my favourite outdoor food markets to visit! Le Stand is a perfect example of the different but tasty vegetarian food you can find here. It’s the kind of food that you wouldn’t normally have (think purple cauliflower) but that makes you feel good and your body satisfied!

I start to get homesick especially around Thanksgiving time not only because I miss my family, but also because I miss the comfort food! Rachel’s is a great place to indulge and enjoy some of that comfort food, with a kick, that will make you feel at home: stuffed and happy!

Ever heard of Waygu? It’s the strand of Japanese beef where you can find the famous Kobe beef as well. Well mix together Japanese beef with French flavours and American burger traditions and you get Baagaa, the fusion burger place to be!
