Paris Day Two – Hotel Henriette & Alain Passard’s Arpège

  The first morning I woke up in Paris, I felt GREAT! When we travel abroad, we always complain about how the hotel beds/pillows/mattress/duvets don’t match the standard we expected. And you’re always left with a sleepless night or a backache in the morning. But then when the things are ac …

Best(one of the many) Dinner in Paris – Pottoka, and Its Lamb

Here you go, the ultimate LAMB. Slow roasted with razor clams, new potatoes, artichokes and asparagus. Brought out sizzling and steaming to our table at Pottoka, this unassuming little restaurant tucked away near the Eiffel tower on Rue de L’Exposition. <

Paris Day One, Lunch at Terroir Parisien de Yannick Alleno

Japanese Breakfast at Kyo 京, Boat Ride & Tenryu-ji Temple 天龍寺

The last day came to the tranquil stay at Suiran in Arashiyama.  The morning came sunny and bright, I felt difficult to say goodbye to what by then, had become my Kyoto “home” in my heart.  We took our last chance to try the Japanese style breakfast in Kyo, the restaur …
