Go get dessert next time: we tried Shake Shack chocolate Concrete

Where to have a Cuban Sandwich in Soho?

You must have heard about the Cuban sandwich. I love this delicioux combo of thin pork slices, ham and cheese with pickles. The toasted panini-like bread adds a lot of ...

La Palmeraie, a sumptuous meal in a georgous setting

Gigaro is only a few minutes by car from St-Tropez and the ride is entirely worth it if you stop at La Palmeraie. We had dinner there a few months ago, with a view overlooking the palm trees and the beatiful provençal landscape. PROVENCAL CUISINE WITH A TWIST Things got quickly serious with the celeriac in remoulade with [...]

Morocco meets pop art in a cocktail bar, that’s Andy Wahloo

Walou is a typical Moroccan term referring to something you don’t have the answer to. You’ll fully understand the pun and the reference to Andy Warhol once you get inside, they successfully associated north African style with a hint of modern art and pop. Think comfortable leather bench seat and mosaic style coffee tables. The bartender [...]

La Pinède, a different take on the French Riviera

We all hate the show-off atmosphere at St-Tropez, that’s exactly why we went off the beaten path, in Gigaro. In this charming village, you’ll be find a peaceful hotel overviewing a breathtaking landscape. La Pinède offers more than a private beach, there’s also a pool, a nice bar area and well decorated bedrooms. Don’t be afraid [...]

Brioche Con Gelato, where to find them in New York

Brioche con Gelato, it’s like Marie-Antoinette meeting Da Vinci. An unexpected fusion dessert between France and Italy. We recently fell in love with this generous brioche stuffed with italian style gelato. The idea might seem bizarre but the result is great. At first, you get the crunchiness of the toasted brioche, then you discover a refreshing heart [...]

Barbarac, cheap ice-creams in St-Tropez. True Story

Who could think we could find more than decent ice cream in St-Tropez? If you head to the marina where all the luxurious yachts are parked, you’ll probably notice this gelato spot with a strange name, Barbarac. The price tag was surprisingly cheap considering the location, I almost choked when I was asked to pay €4 when I [...]

MIZNON, street food for riches in Paris

Miznon is the last trendy street food joint in Paris. The chef comes from Tel Aviv, Israel, and mainly does pita and falafels in his new Paris outpost. The decor is very neat, we love this kind of industrial vintage look although there’s a feeling of déja vu. We got a beef bourguignon pita and a [...]

Tea Time’s Kingdom at the PRINCE DE GALLES

Who goes for a tea time in Paris just for the tea? We’re only interested in the pastries and the finger sandwiches. But don’t go for the old school palaces where the tea time is all about ripping off tourists. The Prince de Galles has undergone renovation for a few years and it has finally reopened recently.

The DAILY SYRIEN, better than l’As du Falafel?

Saying that Middle Eastern street food in Paris has always been weak is an understatement. I should use the past tense though, as the Daily Syrien has been a great addition to that food scene in Paris. It’s not that we don’t like l’As du falafel, the most famous falafel joint in Paris but it’s a bit overrated [...]

A night at Michel Guerard’s hotel, is it worth the price?

After a good meal at Michel Guerard flagship restaurant in Eugénie Les Bains, it’s very tempting to have a nap in the Prés d’Eugénie. Is it worth the demential price tag though? Be prepared to pay about €200 a night for a one bedroom apartment. There are several parts in the hotel, we went with the appartments of [...]

A couscous at CAFE GITANE, in the Jane Hotel

Located on the ground floor of the Jane Hotel, the Cafe Gitane supposedly offers one of the best couscous in New York. Let’s be honest, it’s more because of the fanciness of the couscous that you should come here. It comes in a suprising way, erected into the plate like a tower, with merguez on the [...]

Inside the restaurant of yet another ex-Top Chef, the METROPOLITAIN

We stopped at the Metropolitain for one night. The chef, Paul-Arthur Berlan, took part in the 2012 Top Chef tv show and even went to the final. He opened his restaurant in Saint-Paul, one of the most trendy Parisian neighborhoods. The food is more than a mere tv distraction though. Every dish we had was well executed and [...]

KOKORO, a great bistro on the rue des Boulangers

Kokoro refers to the heart in Japanese, but it’s also the name of hidden gem in the 5th arrondissement. Ironicaly, except the name and the origin of the pastry chef, there’s nothing you could see Japanese by any stretch of the imagination. €19.50 LUNCH MENU, NOT A BAD DEAL The chicken breast comes filled with artichokes [...]

MICHEL GUERARD, it’s not only about lean cuisine

Michel Guérard is to Eugénie-les-Bains what the pope is to Vatican. He’s the master of this thermal resort located not far from Pau.
