Everybody knows that Paris is the city of love, food, and wine. But tourists so often spend most of their time captivated by it's beautiful monuments and attractions that they miss out on what it's really famous for. It's always better to eat and drink your way through this city instead...
The first time I went to Paris, I went to every tourist destination that I could fit into the three days that I had. I don’t remember very much of that trip. It was too fast-paced, too high stress, and too much like hard work.
The second time I went, it was in February and only for the weekend. I was there with my dashing boyfriend and we decided to do nothing but eat, drink, and be merry. This truly proved to be the only way to experience this city.
We spent three whole days eating crepes at every cafe we passed. The best combination of foody Paris and tourist Paris can be found on Rue Cler. It’s within spitting distance of the Eiffel Tower, has a famous street market, and best of all, it has Le Roussillon (186 Rue Grenelle, 75007) – a great little bar/restaurant to spend wasting the nights away over a bottle of wine.
In the end, we fell in love with the TASTE of Paris.
