10 things you have to eat in Paris

Visiting Paris anytime soon? Here are some delicious eats you should consider trying:

For breakfast


Nothing beats a Pain au Chocolat early in the morning. This is a delicious pastry filled with chocolate. Yum!

The Chausson aux Pommes is also great. This one is filled with apple.

For lunch or dinner

Onion SoupYummy beef broth with lots and lots of onions cooked to perfection. Scrumptious!

Croque Monsieur or Madame: One of my favourites! Definitely packed with calories, this is the French version of a grilled cheese. Yet, it also has ham. An egg is added on top of the ‘madame’.

Escargots: If not here, where are you ever going to eat snails? Ready give them a go, they are served with some delicious buttery sauce.

Boeuf Bourguignon: If you love Burgundy wine, then you’ll love this beefy stew. Its hearty goodness will make you feel right at home.

Coq au VinAnother boozy favourite, this chicken is slow-cooked in white wine.

French steaks are known to be very good, so why not try their steak tartare? Yes, that means finely chopped raw beef. It might be raw, but it is very flavourful – only in Paris.

For dessert

Crepes: Super thin pancakes – often served as street food – filled with the most delicious whipped cream/chocolate or even apples. A must try for any first-timer.

Hot ChocolateThe Parisians sure know their hot chocolate. It’s not watered down, but thick and creamy. It’s nothing short of a pudding.

Macarons: You’ll find the best ones at Laduree in Paris. They are egg white perfection!

Eat the Most Expensive Food in the World

Feeling peckish? Maybe try one of these, the world’s most expensive treats. Think caviar and truffles – these rare foods are culinary delights you might now get to try every day, or ever.

Edible gold leaf

Like iron and calcium, gold can also be ingested by humans. Even though it is super pricey, edible gold leafs are often incorporated into fancy desserts to ad that something special.

White truffles

Often served with risotto (above), white truffles are delicious shaved and in oil. Their high price is due to their unpredictable growth habits. White truffles, also known as Alba truffles, are the rarest and therefore the most expensive.

Kobe beef

Also known as Wagyu, this melt-in-your-mouth beef comes from Wagyu cattle raised in the Hyogo region of Japan. Foodies and meat lovers swear by this flavourful beef.


Synonymous with luxury, caviar comes primarily from sturgeon that live in the Caspian Sea. Beluga caviar is thought to be the best.

Civer Coffee (Kopi Luwak)

Foie Gras

This is of course the liver of a force-fed duck or goose. Yes, force-fed with feeding corn to make that liver plump up.
