KL pâtisserie

Hi, it’s me Marimonda!

Today, I’d like to introduce you KL pâtisserie, one of the best pastry stores in Paris. France is known for its dessert, so many people come to Paris to study pastry. One of my friends also studied pastry in Paris and worked here for about year. Before she go back to her homeland, she wanted to visit all famous pastry shops in Paris, and I was lucky to accompany with her.

Atmosphere

The atmosphere of the salon was quiet. Since I am used to a coffee shop like Starbucks where everyone chats and full of energy and noise, this place seemed quite calm and tranquil. I saw other people having a coffee break , and everything was so organized. It looks like a high-end patisserie, but also a very comfy place to chill out.

It’s grey-based store with golden color highlights. The store looks bigger than it is thanks to its open kitchen. You might able to see the chef and his team baking there. When you get into the store the server will come and introduce you a table. It was my first time (and the last time so far) to visit here, thus I didn’t know what was famous and which dessert I should try. So I went to the vitrine to look at some desserts and I decided what to order.

Menu and Service

The server was very kind. If you’re not sure what to have, s.he will suggest something based on your taste. This place is known for its fig tart(Fichi viola) , so we ordered one. We also ordered a mirabelle tart (tarte mirabelle) because it’s the seasonal fruit. For coffees, we ordered allongé, a french style americano with less water.

The coffee was nothing special. You could find the better one in other coffee shops, but this is not a place specialized in coffee. Thus, it was okay. The tower of sugar caught my eyes. It was fun and unique way to offer sugar for your coffee. It was fun but less practical because if you want bigger or smaller sugar (or even white or brown one) than the one on the top, it was hassle to get it.

The tarts were successful. You can feel the generosity of the chef by looking at the amount of the fruit. Thanks to the massive amount of the fruit, the tarts were not that sweet and I loved them. Personally, I preferred the mirabelle tart because it had a bit more crunchy texture than fig tart.

Both tarts were not super pricey ( € 6) considering the quality of the food. I think it’s because the pastry store is located in the 17th arrondissement, which is little bit away from the touristic area (about 20 mins by foot from the Arc de Triomphe). With one allongé, I paid less than €10 which is reasonable price in a decent cafe here.

Overall, it’s worth visiting here if you’d like to experience a great dessert. Especially, the chef Kevin Lacote seems like one of the best pastry chefs in Paris. After seeing his experiences, now I know why my friend wanted to come here. The chef has an impressive career that all patissier would dream of. My point is, if you’re studying or interested in pastry world, it’s a must-visit place in Paris.

Happy travel with Marimonda. Please follow me and see you soon 🙂

Casse Croûte Grec

Hi, it’s me Marimonda!

Today, I’d like to introduce you a kebab resto. It is very common to see a kebab place in Paris. Almost every block has one kebab restaurant in downtown. If you see a red and yellow(sometimes white) sign at night, it’s probably a kebab restaurant. Kebab is originally from Middle East, however in Paris (or maybe in France) it’s very easy to find kebab place every corner due to many immigrants.

Thanks to its cheap price and big portion, Casse Croûte Grec is beloved food by students who can’t have proper meal during the day because of the class schedule or other reasons. It also serves crêpes, but their specialty is kebab. Plus, there’s famous crêpes resto in Rue Mouffetard (5th arrondissement), and I’d like to post of that place soon.

This dark green kebab house attracts the eyes from far distance. It’s located in 5th near Sorbonne university. During the semester usually it’s crowded with students. It seems like a mouth to ear restaurant among students, and that’s how I found this place, too. I always see many students having kebab on the picnic table next to Pantheon and finally I was one of them.

The restaurant chosen one of the best kebab places in Paris by kebab-frites.com (I think it’s a kebab community, haven’t heard of it before). The store is very small and the seats are not that comfortable, probably that’s why many people take out their lunch or snack here. I’ve been here couple of times and there’s always one cook who takes order and prepares the food. Thus, the service seems to be slower than other places, but since it’s a fast food your kebab will be ready within five minutes unless there’s a queue.

When you order a plate(assiette kebab), they serve the bread separately, thus you can wrap your meat and veggies if you’d like. That’s easier to eat in the restaurant but to take out obviously kebab is better since you wouldn’t need any utensil to eat it. I recommend algerian sauce (the orangish sauce on the plate) to add your kebab. It has little bit of spicy flavor thus the sauce goes really well with kebab, which can be a bit greasy as time goes by. Also it’s an amazing combination with french fries.

Maybe I am not that into kebab that much, so I didn’t find any specialty of this place to be honest. Or, I’ve tried only 3~4 kebab restaurants in Paris, thus it’s too small number of places to compare. What I liked the most here was french fries because they’re prepared right after the order. The price of the menu is less than 10 euros including a drink.

Happy Travel with Marimonda 🙂 See you soon!

Chefs du quartier

Hi, it’s me Marimonda!

Today, I’d like to introduce you chefs du quartier, a concept restaurant in Paris. Being a world gourmet city, there are so many good restaurants in Paris. I even have a long wish list for restaurants. Since I can’t afford all of them, I need to think and plan well before I visit restaurants. Last time I introduced Pierre Sang (to see my previous post on Pierre Sang, click here), where you can get a decent three-course meal for €25. Chefs du quartier is not that fancy, it looks like a typical restaurant you can find every corner, but it offers warm and comfortable atmosphere with yummy home food.

It’s located near 13th arrondissement, not in touristic area. Thus, if you’re visiting Paris only for few days, maybe it’s not worth to visit, because time will be very important for you. However, if you have relatively enough time in Paris and you’d like to try for budget course meal, this place is for you.

Welcomed its first guest in 2014, the restaurant offers not only the food, but also offer cooking classes, or cooking related activities. Today’s menu is the only menu. When I visited, today’s menu was beet yogurt purée, risotto with duck and green vegetables, and apple pie.

We ordered three course meal and a glass of wine.

The two-course meal costs € 11.5, and the three-course meal is €15. The both menu includes a cup of coffee in the end. A glass of wine is €3 and teas are €1. Baguette is unlimited. If you take out your food, it’s €2~3 cheaper than restaurant price.

Amongst the dish I had, I liked the entrée the most. It was very creamy and refreshing. Also it went really well with its crunch nut garnish and sliced green onion. Risotto is good. When it was just served it was very yummy, but as it got colder, the duck became a bit greasy. Maybe that’s why they put a lot of coriander above to refresh you. For dessert, apple pie was served. It was good but it wasn’t that impressive.

Overall, it was a satisfying visit. The price was reasonable and the food was good. Actually, I went there for three times but every single time I went, it was full. This time I went there really early like 11:30 a.m. to check if the seats are available. The cook told me that there was a seat today, but he recommended to book a table in advance. Since the restaurant is quite small and serves relatively balanced food with good price, it’s always full.

Happy Travel with Marimonda. See you soon 🙂

Sanukia

Hi, it’s me Marimonda!

Today, I’d like to introduce you Sanukia, an authentic and probably one of the best Japanese Udon restaurants in Paris. Located near Opera Garnier, this orange canopy will catch your attention from distance, and there’s usually a line to get in.

Atmosphere

The restaurant is relatively small and have many individual seats toward the wall and the kitchen, which made me think it’s more authentic. Their menu is full of noodles in different styles. I ordered a lunch menu of tempura udon with side dish and a drink. With your lunch menu, you can only order appetizer + menu (+€5 to the main menu), or appetizer + menu + drink (+€7 to the main menu) For drink, I had calpis, one of typical Japanese sweet milky soda. In your udon, you can add up more toppings as you wish. I only added grated radish(€1), but the onsen tamago (poached egg, €2) is one of the most popular toppings.

Menu and Service

For appetizer, a bowl of burdock rice, fried chicken, eggs, and some salad were served. If you’re a small eater, probably this entrée can fill you up enough. Even if you’re not a small eater, I do recommend you not to finish all at once, since Udon is also mostly made out of flour (carbonate) and you’ll be full very easily.

The tempura udon was full of fried vegetables and shrimps. The soup was served separately to keep your fries crispy. The noodle was very well-cooked so did fries. The portion is quite big, thus I couldn’t finish all.

The servers were very friendly and considerate. It was a very sunny day, thus they prepared umbrellas so that we could use it to block some Sunshine. The food wasn’t served that quickly since many people were waiting, but the quality of the food was awesome.

Overall, it was a good idea to visit here. The only thing I didn’t liked was the price. It was about €25 for the menu and it seems a bit overpriced to me. To me, it’s a price for sushi not for udon. But if I miss udon, I think I would go back to this place because it’s the best udon place I’ve ever been to in Paris.

Hope this review help you to choose a right restaurant in Paris. See you again 🙂

Trois Fois Plus de Piment

Hi, it’s me Marimonda!

Today, I’d like to introduce you an authentic Sichuan restaurant, Trois Fois Plus de Piment, in Paris. Characterized by its spiciness, Sichuan food is known for using a lot of garlic and peppers. There are many sichuan restaurants here from budget to luxury. This is a budget place If you’re looking for something spicy, this place is definitely for you. Three branches are in Paris (Beaubourg, Saint Germain, and Montmartre), and I went to the one in Saint Germain. I wanted to visit this place in the middle of August, but it was closed due to the summer holidays. Many French restaurants are in vacation August(for about 3 weeks), thus if you’d like to try a specific restaurant, you should contact them before unless it might be closed.

Atmosphere

Located in 5th arrondissement, this place is full of vivid energy. It’s a casual restaurant. As you can see in the picture, the restaurant isn’t that big but cozy and can accomodate about 20~ 25 people. I went there quite late on the week, and the restaurant was almost full. It would be better book a table if you’re more than a group of four.

Menu and Service

LIke a night snack food truck, the food in this place is quite simple. Mainly, They sell noodles and dumplings. You can choose different garnishes, noodles and spiciness to your taste. For the level of spicy, there are 0-5. We asked the clerk, and she told us she hadn’t seen anyone ordered more than level 3. We ordered one dumpling with sichuan sauce (spicy level 1) to share and two Dan Dan noodles with soup in different spicy level (1 and 2), one dumpling soup, and one vermicelli with soup.

The food was served quite fast. I usually have dumplings with soy sauce and red pepper powder. Thus, the dumplings with level 1 sauce wasn’t spicy. It worked up my appetite. But I felt the noodles with the same level were spicer than dumplings. The soup was hot and it made me feel more spicier I guess. The noodles were very chewy and properly cooked. Since the place was awarded the prize best noodles Fooding Guide in 2016, no wonder I felt in that way. But my favorite was dumplings!

The staffs were super and tried to give us good advice to choose the right level. If it’s not spicy enough, you may ask the sauce to spice up your dish. One of my friends loves spicy food. After talking to the server, he ordered level 2, but he asked more sauce in the end. Also, you can ask not to put coriander in your food if you don’t like it.

The price was reasonable. It’s not cheap nor expensive. One main dish costs around €10~13, the five dumplings are €5.4. Including drink, €20 will be enough budget for a meal.

Hope this review help you to choose a right restaurant in Paris. See you again 🙂

La Régalade

Hi, it’s me Marimonda!

Today, I’d like to introduce you a quality French restaurant La Régalade. There are three branches in Paris, I went to the one called La Régalade Conservatoire. It’s the third restaurant of chef Bruno Doucet. Located in the 9th arrondissement, this bistro-like restaurant offers a three-course meal for a reasonable price considering its location and atmosphere.

Atmosphere

The restaurant shares the ground floor with the Lobby of the Hôtel de NELL. Don’t feel you should dress up to go there. It’s a rather casual place than a formal one. Still, the quality of the food is very high and tasty.

After ordering food, the server will bring you some complimentary tartare and bread. It didn’t look special, but it was yummy, one of the best tartares I’ve ever tried in Paris.

Menu and Service

The three course meal starts from €41. It’s a set price excluding beverages. You can change some dishes with extra charge. Daily specials are on the wall, it will add up about €5~10 on your bill. My friends and I chose basic menu (without extra charge), still there are 4~5 options for each course. If it’s your first visit, I think it’s better to try the basic menu since the most signature food of the restaurant are on the list.

For appetizer, we ordered three different dishes : Risotto crémeux à l’encre de seiche (creamy risotto with cuttlefish ink), salmon, and zucchini and arugula cold soup. The creamy shrimp risotto is the most famous appetizer in this place, also recommended by the chef. It was a pleasure to feel the creamy, crispy, and chewy textures altogether. Personally, I prefer smoked salmon to cooked one. Thus, the salmon didn’t give me an impact, but it was yummy and refreshing. The cold soup was good to work up my appetite.

For main, we ordered veal steak and fried pork. The veal cooked perfectly. We ordered a bottle of Bourgogne wine to pair with the meat. It cost a bit less than €40 as far as I remember. More exclusive wines were available when I dined out there, and it was upto €1600. The pork seemed deep fried thus you can feel crunchy and soft texture at the same time. The pork was the chef’s recommendation. It won’t let you down.

For dessert, we ordered rice pudding and souffle. Accompanied with caramel sauce, the rice pudding was very sweet. It was a bit big portion, though. The souffle was very tender and melted in mouth. We couldn’t finish all, but they were perfect to finish the meal.

The quality of the service was high enough. The servers tried to explained us all the menus and their specialties. They were always reachable and ready to answer our inquiries.

Overall, it was a satisfying visit. The portion of the food is big. None of us could finish the dessert. We ordered four course meals, one bottle of wine, one glass of wine, two beers, and one bottle of sparkling water. We paid €60 each including a small tip (like 3% of the total payment).

IN FRANCE, YOU DON’T LEAVE A TIP!

Thus, leaving a tip was a gesture to express my satisfaction to the food and service.

Hope this review help you to choose a right restaurant in Paris. See you again 🙂

Salon de Thé de la Mosquée de Paris

Hi, it’s me Marimonda!

La Mosquée de Paris
Marimonda World

Today, I’d like to introduce you an unique cafe in the heart of Paris, the Salon de thé de la mosquée de Paris. Located in front of the Jardin des Plantes, this white building with green roof is catching eyes. It’s a mosque where you can pray or do religious activities but also you can enjoy some tea and hammam (turkish bath and sauna) here. This time I only went to Salon de thé to get to know this place. After visiting the tea salon, I can’t wait to experience hammam as soon as possible!!

Atmosphere

When you enter the main door on the picture above, you would see a picturesque garden. There are plenty of outdoor seats, but it’s smoking section. Thus, my friends and I decided to get an indoor table. Inside of the tea salon was more colorful and splendid. On the walls, there are some pictures of people wearing traditional clothing. A cat wandering around the cafe makes this place more exotic. Thus, don’t be surprised if you feel something furry. The cat seemed a bit shy, but cat is a cat. It did whatever it wanted. Visited this table and the other table, looking at people or lying on the floor, it had a real free soul. But don’t get me wrong, the cat didn’t jumping around the table nor act wild.

Menu and Service

Some food are available but it seemed quite expensive(i.g. couscous for 17), while the tea and the oriental patisseries are offered reasonable price(2 each). We tried mint tea and sweets with an espresso. OMG, it was one of the best teas I’ve ever tried in my life. The server brought us a plate which is full of the desert. Two euros sounded cheap but the portion of the tea was very small. The pastries were also good, they really went well with the tea. My favorite was the top on the left (below the sunglasses). It has many layers like millefeuille but very crispy. In the end, I had to order one more of it. More pastries are available at the patisserie corner where you pay when you buy. But if you choose your snacks from the plate, you pay before you leave the cafe at your table.

Service was also very nice. Staffs were warmly welcome and served tea and food. It took some time to bring us the tea, though. They were super nice to us offered us a plate, so we didn’t have to line up to get the dessert and showed us a video of hammam telling us about it. Maybe one of my friends spoke a basic Arabic to them, that’s why they were more friendly to my table.

Overall, it was a satisfying visit. I will definitely come back to have a tea soon. Plus, I’d like to try hammam next time.

Hope you liked my review of the Tea Salon in the Paris’ Mosque. See you again 🙂

Plus 82

Hi, it’s me Marimonda!

Today, I’d like to introduce you to a Korean dessert cafe in Paris <Plus 82>. It’s really hot these days, thus I thought it would be nice if you can try some cold pause during the day.

Atmosphere

There are many Korean restaurants and dessert cafes in Paris, but I found this is more authentic and contemporary one than other stores. The interior of the store seems a bit fusion because Korean-style props and modern simple style props were harmonized in this cafe. The chairs were pretty but somewhat uncomfortable to stay for some time to talk with friends and to relax.

Menu and Price

Bingsu, a typical summer dessert in Korea will give you a cool pause and refresh you. Originally, it is made of crushed ice with some sweets on top such as pat(sweet red bean paste), ddeok(rice cake) and jelly with some drips of condensed milk. Instead of the sweet red bean paste, these days more options are available such as fruits, coffee, green tea powder, etc. Normally, it’s considered as a snack that you share with your friend or family. It’s not common to have the whole bowl by oneself.

Here, you can also try from the basic bingsu (padd bingsu) to fruit ones. You can also find other beverages such as coffee, juice, or tea. I went there three times, but the best one was the basic one.

Consist of many layers of ingredients, Bingsu will give you a icy breeze in your mouth. You can pour more or less the condensed milk depending on your taste.

Green Tea (matcha) cookie is also served with some condensed milk which made the cookie too sweet. It’s recommendable only if you drink black coffee such as americano.

You may feel it’s expensive that paying  €7~8 per menu after the meal. As I mentioned above, however, it’s very common to share the dessert with your friends in Korea. If you share it with your friend, it won’t be that high price. Though, I found the snacks like the green tea cookie( around €2) above or other bakeries are pretty expensive. Teas and coffees cost around €4~5, which is similar price in other cafes in Paris.

Hope this review help you to choose a cafe in Paris. See you soon 🙂

Al Caratello

Hi, it’s me Marimonda! Today I’d like to introduce you my favorite Italian restaurant in Paris!

Located in the Audran street, this place is always full of people and pleasant atmosphere. I’m so excited to share this place. I found this restaurant when I arrived at Paris in 2017. At that moment, I stayed in an airbnb in 18th arrondissement (because it’s usually cheaper than other areas), so I had opportunities to try out some restaurants nearby. This is the best one so far in every sense (price, atmosphere, and the most important thing – taste)

It seems like the owner(or the workers) of the restaurant are Italians, because you can hear Italians when they talk to each other. In the Audran street, you may see three restaurants named caratello: Al Caratello, Pizza Caratello, and Piccolo Caratello. Looking at the names, I guess they are all family-run restaurant like Berthillon.

Atmosphere

The restaurant is quite small with full of people. The light is soft so your food looks more delicious. Servers are very friendly and most of them speak French, Italian, and English. Hearing all the different languages, it’s like a small melting pot in Montmartre. Unlike other restaurants in Paris, they don’t have terrace seats. During the summer they leave the door and the window so you can have your meal with a little breeze.

Menu and Price

The main reason I like this place is the food is delicious with reasonable price. The ingredients are very fresh and very well-cooked. Pastas and risottos are always well-cooked, they’re always perfect to eat. Thinking of the food, now I have a watery mouth.. yum yum.. Piatto di Mare is an appetizer to share. You can choose big or small depending on the number of people. A mixture of fresh seafood and soup with a refreshing touch of lemon and tomato, I think this is worth to try. If you like squeed, I recommend you linguine nero di seppia(middle). They have basic pastas such as pomodoro, seafood, carbonara or amatriciana, but this squid-ink pasta is not easy to find.

Most pastas cost €12-13, if you choose something special ingredients like truffles a dish can be about €15-18. I think that’s quite good price compared other restaurants in Paris. They also have good house wines that you can accompany with your food. I would say you can enjoy a good Italian meal including drinks for about €20 (one dish + one drink).

This is the restaurant where I go whenever I’m craving Italian food. It’s a bit far away from the center of the city, but if you’re going to Montmartre area, it’s worth to try. All of my friends who I went there with are also very satisfied. One of my friends visited Paris two years in a row and even asked me to go this restaurant again.

Pause

Since Montmartre is a tourist spot, most of the restaurants offer the service continu(open without after lunch break). However, this restaurant is very strict with its after lunch break. One time I arrived at 6:50 p.m. but I had to wait until 7 p.m. to get the menu. Also usually the restaurant fills up very quickly, it’s better to book a table in advance.

Hope this review help you to choose a restaurant in Paris. See you again 🙂

Mi Ranchito Paisa

Hi, it’s me Marimonda!

Today, I’d like to introduce you an authentic Colombian paisa restaurant in Paris. I’ve been to couple of colombian restaurants in Paris, but this is one of my best Colombian restaurants including ones inside Colombia.

Atmosphere

The restaurant seems like a finca. Colored with vivid red color, you would feel as if you were in a country house for a holiday. It’s somewhat dark but the atmosphere is very bright and happy with music. Servers are generally friendly. There are many tables (more than 10), but at the meal time the place is filled up quite fast. It’s better to reserve your table to make sure. The food is served a bit slow since they cook the food after the order. It takes about 20 mins(or even more) to get your dish.

Empanadas

Empanadas are like fried dumplings. They are filled with beef, chicken, or pork with some mashed potatoes and cheese. You can choose the flavor you want, or try out all three flavors.

Bandeja Paisa (Paisa Platter)

Bandeja Paisa is for someone who wants to try a Colombian paisa’s signature dish. Frijoles (red bean paste soup), chorizo(sausage) , chicharón(fried bacon), egg, rice, minced beef, avocado are served in a big plate. It’s full of nutrition, esp. protein. It will fill you up for the whole day.

Cazuelita Paisa

This is my personal favorite. It’s like bandeja paisa but a smaller version and easier to eat. Instead of whole a quarter of avocado and bacon, all the ingredients are chopped and served in a bowl. An arepa (fried ground maize dough) and rice is accompanied to balance the meal.

Tumba Catre

This is a typical seafood soup in Colombia. It has a rich flavor, thus if you don’t like fishy taste, it’s not a good idea to try. In this dark yellowish soup, you can taste the harmony of squid, mussels, shrimps, clams, and fish. Coco-rice and patacones (tostones, double-fried plantain slices) are accompanied to balance the meal.

Super Picada

Super picada is like a platter for two people. You can try empanadas, beef steak, ribs, chorizos,yuca(cassava), potatoes, patacones, and fried bananas with guacamoles and spicy sauce. This is a combination for all kinds of colombian fries. Most of them are fried food, thus it can be too greasy to finish with two people. I ordered this when I went there with my friends (we were four) as a snacks to accompany with beers.

Descubriendo

It’s like super picada but for one person. It has more traditional colombian food such as chicharon and marinated beef.

Overall, all the menus were delicious for me(maybe I lived in Colombia, thus I am used to that flavors). The portion of the food is very big. Since most of the dish has fried food, it’s more filling than it looks. Most of the dishes are paisa food based on Antioquia region.

Prices

Prices are not that cheap to be honest, rather expensive. If you have ever been to Colombia, you would feel it’s very expensive. Considering the restaurant is close to the center of the city and it’s an exotic restaurant, the price seems reasonable. I’ve been to an Ethiopian restaurant in Paris, and the price was similar to here. It costs €17-25 per dish, including drinks it would be about €20-30 per person. I wish they offer a smaller portion with cheaper price for light eaters like me.

Hope you enjoyed the review of Mi Ranchito Paisa with Marimonda 🙂 See you soon.
