La Maison Thai, 75018

La Maison Thai, 75018

Tucked away on an off-street behind the rue de l’Olive is a real no-frills, authentic Thai place. La Maison Thai. It would be a rather unremarkable shopfront were it not for the queue out the door during the lunch rush. It’s one of these places that I like to keep under my cap – as do the other regulars it would seem – because it’s genuin

I find the line 2 métro fascinating. Of all the different lines, it is peut-être this one which covers the widest range of Parisian communities. Starting off at Nation, moving through the Chinese communities in Belleville and Menilmontant, you see the hoardes of sunbathers getting off at Jaures and heading for the Canal Saint Martin. There are th

Since 2009, Marie-Helene Gantois has been selecting very best from very best chocolatiers in France and selling them in her independant shop on the bustling market street rue Mouffetard in the 5th arrondissement. The three featured chocolatiers are Fabrice Gillotte (MOF 1990, who won this prestiguous title when he was just 26 years old), Jacques Be

Le Café des Musées, 75003

So many people ask me where you can find steak-frites in Paris. Or where are the best escargots in the city? For longer than I would care to admit, these questions had me scratching my head…. I have lived here for so long that I’m no longer craving these classic dishes. The restaurants where I tend to go are the more modern, trendy ones which c
La Cave de Don Doudine, 75018

La Cave de Don Doudine, 75018

Photo credit: Martin Parr There’s been a huge hullaballoo around the opening of la Brasserie Barbes this week. Apparently, we’re supposed to be up in arms about how the area around Barbes-Rochechouart station is being reclaimed by hipsters. Apparently, (if you take notice of what people who previously only ever dared to go as far as Tati say) i
Cafe Chilango, 75011

Cafe Chilango, 75011

Picture the scene: “So we’re opening a new spot in Paris. The hipster market is booming right now and we should make that our focus. What do we need?” – Ethnic food served on small plates. Check. – Beer from Deck and Donohue. Check. – Coffee from Cafe Lomi and/or Belleville. Check. – An offering of banana bread, carrot cake and the li

La Mosquée, 75005

Escapism. It really is a wonderful thing to clear the mind. To sit quietly by yourself, in a place outside your comfort zone (by that I mean, not your local coffee shop.. y’know, the one with the free-wifi, where you sit in that same spot by the window…) Time turns to a standstill. You are acutely aware of your surroundings. Psychologists would
Rossi & Co, 75002

Rossi & Co, 75002

Marco Rossi is a star, about whom we food-writers do not give enough air-time. I have had the pleasure of eating there several times now, a pleasure for which I doth my cap to Ottava Vino, the organisers of these amazing wine-dinners. Tucked away behind the touristy rue Montorgueil, the restaurant itself gives off a rather exclusive vibe. Black ext
La Pâtisserie des Rêves, 75116

La Pâtisserie des Rêves, 75116

“Et voila” she scowls as she throws the plates down in front of us. La Pâtisserie des Rêves has been an address I’ve long admired. It was during my first week in Paris that I had my first taste of the Paris-Brest… but my love peaked at the moment that I was introduced to Conticini by my old boss. My sister was in town this weekend and I w
Golosino, 75005

Golosino, 75005

The rue Mouffetard is known for many things… but to find a good Italian pizza joint along this cute, narrow cobbled street n’est pas évident. It was only because of a tip-off from Thomas at DOSE, the neighbourhood coffee shop, that I even gave a second glance to the Square Vermenouze, situated just off the main shopping strip. Golosino is a ve
