The beans on fire

It was a sunny in Paris and I had un render-vous with my friend, Kenzie. We were on the hunt for some delicious donuts that we saw on instagrams world at The Beans on Fire.

I arrived at the café and went straight to the counter and ordered a cup of cappuccino with the barista. However, the main objective today is to try The Boneshakers‘s donuts. So I ended up getting two donuts for myself. First one is blackberry and lime, the second one is sugar and cinnamon.

We grabbed a seats by the window and had our first bite of the blackberry and lime. All we said were « OMGGGGGGG, WOWWWWWW, IT’S SO FLUFFY ». That was probably the best donut I ever had in my life. The dough was so soft and fluffy. The icing was just so perfect, not too sweet just the way I like it.

The lady brought out another donuts that she just made  and it looked absolutely « to die for ». It was a vanilla, white chocolate and lime. We couldn’t say no to that goddess looking donuts so we got 1 to share. And I think we made the right decision because it was so good. I must say that I was high on sugar for the whole day, hahahaha+ but it was worth it.

Im glad that I finally made it there. The coffee and donuts were just so perfect for a little lunch break/catch up with friends. Im going back there again this week to try their salted caramel donut. If you fancy something sweet, GO GO GO and check it out people!

Kodawari Ramen

Hey guys, I hope everyone is doing very well and enjoying life as much as I do. I recently have been eating out a lot. There are so many new places that opened in Paris and obviously I can’t missed that because I’m such a foodie as you can probably tell by now.

Today, it’s all about a brand new place for Ramen, KODAWARI RAMEN in Saint Germain des Prés. When I entered the restaurant, I thought I was teleported to Japan. The decorations reminded me so much of a small tiny restaurants in the alley of Tokyo. I got seated by the counter in front of the kitchen.

The menu itself is simple, they have a few starters and ramens with/without soup. Their noodles are homemade with a chicken broth base. I went with Kurogoma Ninniku Soba which is a dark sesame sauce with some bamboo shoots, rockets, onions and seaweed. I ordered an extra Tamago egg with it. The waiter said that the soup is very concentrated.

The service was quick and my bowl of ramen arrived just 10 minutes after I ordered. It was huge and I wasn’t too sure if I’m going to finish it. I tasted the soup first and it was perfect, not too salty. The noodles were a little bit thicker than the one I had but it was perfectly cooked, just the way I preferred. It was a delicious bowl of ramen.

I’m definitely going back there to try their chicken ramen next time because I saw the guy next to me ordered that and it looked amazing. If you are in the Saint Germain Des Prés, make sure you go and check it out.

Season

Healthy life styles has become a trend in Paris as I noticed that there are tons of healthy/gluten free shops and restaurants popping up in every corners of town. I am also trying to eat healthy food as much as I can especially when I go out. So today I am going to tell you all about SEASON.

SEASON is a restaurant in Le Marais that serve healthy/gluten free foods (They have just opened a take away shop close by the restaurant). The restaurant itself have a modern interior design. I just love the decorations especially the tables and chairs.

Moving on to FOOD, there are tons of options for you to choose from. I went for the Kale Caesar salad with chicken along with some pressed carrot, apple and ginger juice. Andréa had the Bo Bun Veggie. The food was well presented but it tasted 100 times better than its look. I think the prices are very reasonable compared to the quality and quantity of the food you get plus the service was excellent.

Great good and something you won’t feel guilty for your body.

Boot Café

Hey guys… I know I know it has been a while since I last posted on my blog. So many things happened in my life in the past few months but I’m finally back with another Parisien Café spots. Today, it’s all about Boot Café.

This small little café is located in the heart of Le Marais. When I said Small I do mean it because they can only fit 2 small tables with a few chairs inside. So if you want to have your coffee there, make sure you go early in the morning. I love everything here, from the decorations to the coffee and the atmosphere. It’s super cozy and a perfect place for you to really enjoy your coffee. As well as serving coffee, They also have bagels, cookies and cakes.

So if you are in the area, make sure to go and check it out guys. You won’t be disappointed! They open every day from 10am-6pm

Rue Crémieux

Rue Crémieux is a little street full of colourful houses, Paris’s version of Portobello road. It located in the 12éme arrondissement. It was a bright and sunny day so I thought it was such a perfect time to head out there and snap some shots on my camera. Here are some of the photos I took while I was there.

Holybelly

This must be one of the blog posts that I am most excited about. I’ve been wanting to write this for so long but I don’t know why it is so hard to get it started. Holybelly is my favourite café for breakfast and brunch. I’m sure everyone has probably heard of this place as it is very famous among the parisiens.

I’ve heard many of my friends said that they always have to wait for a table. But I guess I am very lucky because every time I go there I always get a table straight away without waiting in line. I think you just have to choose the right time, I normally go on the weekdays before 12pm.

I love the interior design of this place, it makes you feel like you are in a different world because you don’t see this kind of café in Paris that often. It’s super cozy and chill. The menu is simply full of delicious food. You can just close your eyes and pick one up and I am sure that it won’t disappoint you. My favourite dish on the menu have to be the sweet pancakes, I will never get bored of it. One thing I like about Holybelly is that they always use fruits and vegetables that are in season from local farmers. The fresh ingredients are their main weapons.

As well as pancakes, they also serve « Eggs and Sides » which basically an English breakfast. You get 2 eggs any style you prefer [fried, scrambles or poached] and you pick you sides to go with it. I would recommend getting their delicious mushrooms and a homemade sausage. A better version of an English breakfast you see elsewhere, flavourful and mouth-watering. One last thing you don’t want to miss out is their delicious coffee.

I can only say good things about this place. Everytime when my family and friends visit me in Paris, I always take them here and everyone loved it. You need to check it out yourself to see if what I said is damn right.

Have a nice day everyone

Coutume Instituutti

The weather has been terrible for the past week. But I still dragged myself out of bed and headed out for another coffee adventure. I’ve heard of Coutume Instituutti for the longest time. It is located in the Quartier Latins, where there are lots of university nearby. So when I entered the shop, I spotted everyone was sitting in front of their laptops in silent. I quickly grabbed a seat and made my way to the counter to order my food.

I decided to go with natural yogurt topped with some granola and a café latté. It was kinda strange for me because I normally have a cappuccino or a café crème. I guess trying something different isn’t a bad idea. It didn’t take too long before the food arrived. Before started eating, obviously I had to take a photo of my food.

I felt like I wanted to stay here for the whole day because I just loved the atmosphere inside. It was so relaxing especially on a rainy day. This café is great for people who is looking for some space to do their works. I guess it is much better than the library right?

Good coffee, tasty cakes and great interior design..
