paris part II – champs elysées & ladurée

by Roxanne C.

on our second day in paris, we decided to take a walk along champs elysées and have lunch at ladurée. actually, it was more of me wanting to do all that and i was deciding between ladurée, the restaurant that has the best macarons in paris and angelina, a restaurant that serves the best hot chocolate in the city. we ended up at ladurée for the afternoon.

champs elysées.

finally a sephora that actually has stuff i wanna buy! i got my pack of 9 mini urban decay 24/7 glied on eye pencils! so happy!!!! this outlet was huge, by the way.

came to the pretty restaurant after a short walk.

xav’s entrée, a superbly done soufflé.

my entrée, a salmon dish served with toast, half a macaron and vodka cream. i initially thought the cream was cheese.

dark chocolate macarons. no pictures of the main dishes we had because i’m too tired to edit and upload them.

the waiter who served us was very nice. we’d originally ordered two different set menues, one which included an entrée and plat du choix and another one that included both of that, plus dessert and 2 macarons. however, we got so full from the food halfway that we decided to change the second set meal into the same one as the first, and then add on one macaron after. the waiter had given us two macarons before we told him about our plan to change the order that he gave us one for free. =) happy! anyway, macarons there are really expensive! 2 euros for one macaron. that’s about sgd$4 for a tiny macaron! i can eat a whole bowl of prawn noodles with that and still get change back!

there was a bar in the restaurant.

the interior of the restaurant was pretty and quaint and it was a lucky thing i brought my camera to the washroom. look!

pretty sinks, mirrors and chairs.

“dressing table” or fireplace?

some pictures of the pastries for sale at the boutique area on the first floor:

we managed to take the pictures before one waitress told me, “no photo.”

i only bought two tiny boxes of chocolates from the boutique. that night, xav and i went to visit julien and sophie at their apartment near belleville. it was a fun time.

this sums up my trip to france for the christmas and new year period. it was an amazing time and i can’t wait to go back! meanwhile, i’ll leave you guys with a picture of some souvenirs i bought at a shop at the louvre.

notebook, ruler and compact mirror. =) so pretty!
