A refreshing matcha latte is to die for after a long walk around town. And the delicate iconic fox shape butter cookies are absolutely lovely(both to taste and to look at) too.
One of the places I’ve been meaning to visit is the new Ines de la Fressange Boutique. Located just behind Boulevard Saint-Germain on a small street, the chic and lively boutique features ready-to-wear lines from the legendary icon herself, homeware, leather goods and accessories.
Good tailoring, nice fabric and easy, throw-on chic interpreted the essence of French style perfectly.
Leaving the shop with a huge full shopping bag, I was satisfied for more window shoppings for the rest of the day, which was the best sort of shopping in Paris too.
After an exhausting shopping day, we were glad to find ourselves relaxed and ready to dine at the cosy surrounding of Bistrot L’Estrapade.
It’s my second time visiting this small bistro in Latin Quarter. The first experience was so unforgettable and I had to visit again, and bringing more friends too.
The warm and welcome one-person service was same as the last time. And the seasonal & inventive menu featured some even more attractive dishes than the last time I remembered(but the price remained the same-36 Euros for the three course set menu. I mean…). I decided to go for the starter of braised pear with chorizo in a creamy sauce for starter, and the seasonal salmon as my main. One of my friends went for escargot starter, and the sea bream quinoa main. The other went for a heavier combo of foie gras and lamb.
Matcha sorbet with pineapple and ginger, and mixed sorbets(the BLUEBERRY flavour!) to round everything up.
If Paris is on your schedule, you really need to be there at least for once, L’Estrapade.
