What I Ate in Paris, France


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 at Le Verre Siffleur [73 Rue Alésia, 75014 Paris]

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 (Duck) at Cafe Constant [139 Rue Saint Dominique, 75007 Paris] 

 Canard is duck. Yummy, yummy duck.

Tartare Huitre

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



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 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.
