Let the post of Paris trip continues…
First thing we arrived in Paris, we wanted to take the metro but ended up with taxi because some how the ticketing machine didn’t take card and we didn’t have small change. Took us quite awhile to reach our apartment! Had to walk a bit as the street was closed due to a music festival that day. Finally! So tired! It’s awesome!
It’s located in a very old building but the interior was very modern. We booked this from Airbnb. The stay cost us EUR800+ for 4 nights. It’s located near The PanthÃ©on area. There’s so many eateries and nightspots down there! Highly recommended! The owner is Thibault. Very friendly guy.
Don’t have to worry about the noise down there, you can’t really hear them. The place is very clean and you have everything available. Felt right at home, very cosy. Carrefour is just around the corner too. Highly recommended! The place can fit 6 people.
The next day, we headed out to discover Paris! First stop, The PanthÃ©on.
Left: The random street in Paris. I just couldn’t believe that I’m actually walking in the street of Paris! All these while I was just looking and admiring the views from photos or on TV. Felt surreal! How I wish I’m there with someone… Too bad I don’t have one hahaha… What a waste!
Right: I don’t remember this sculpture but it can be found in the movie, The Da Vinci Code. However, it’s under maintenance now.
Saint-Sulpice is a Roman Catholic church in Paris.
We had our lunch at Leon de Bruxelles, a popular chain of restaurants in France that primarily serves moules-frites. Were served with complimentary pretzel while we decide on what to order.
Left: Complimentary bread too were served.
Right: Wet wipe for us as we ordered mussels. Need to clean our hands after eating.
Left: Was craving for steak so I ordered Sirloin Steak (EUR18,90), 220gm steak with bearnaise sauce and served with fries and salad. We requested for medium. Oh… It’s been a long time not having a good steak!
Right: Leon’s Burger The Cheese (EUR12) prepared with 2 savoury potato gallettes, a beef steak, mustard, ketchup, tartar sauce, sliced onions, and lettuce. I like the potato gallettes but not the beef.
Left: Fish and Fries (EUR11,40), a fillet of “meuniere”, french fries and tartar sauce. Nothing special about this, it’s just your normal fish and chips.
Right: Mussels!! We ordered Mussels with cream and fresh mushrooms (EUR17,20). Oh yummy!
Left: Fresh Salmon Steak (EUR15,90) with rice and green beans. Salmon was a bit small ;p
I have no idea of the address where we dined, we just simply walked around and saw it. Since it’s a popular restaurant chain in France, you should be able to find it in many places.
Part 4 will come soon.
