patisserie in paris: my favourite food experiences from my travels.

Have you ever indulged in a dish that you just can't stop daydreaming about? Pasta that you can't stop preaching about? A cocktail that you can't get out of your mind? Or perhaps a pudding that you would hop on a plane for?

When asked me that same question, thoughts of my favourite dinners, drinks and desserts from my travels swirled through my mind. Boy, I was suddenly very hungry. Would it be the fresh ravioli from Malta, that infamous 3 Euro pizza in Rome the delectable dim sum I devoured in Hong Kong or the stunning seafood in Sydney? Then I remembered Angelina - the picture perfect patisserie in Paris.

If you've got a sweet tooth, this place has it all. Rich hot chocolate, mouthwatering macarons and devilishly delicious eclairs. I distinctly remember joining the queue outside Angelina's on a cold January morning, spying through the sparkling glass windows at all the colourful creations inside.

In my best French, I ordered a warm cup of chocolat chaud, a classic Angelina eclair and a handful of macarons. Pistachio was a must. I headed out into the Jardin de Tuileries by the Louvre to enjoy them in the cold, crisp but beautiful surroundings. Parfait!

But where next? I'd love to jet of the to like of Tokyo, Canada or Dubai. I simply must head to Izakaya! It's a sushi restaurant right at the top of the Dubai Marriott, serving up the likes of King Crab Miso, Lobster Tempura and Green Tea Mochi. Yes please!

What is your favourite foodie experience on your travels? I'd love to hear your stories and recommendations!

  1. That eclair is a work of art!

    I really loved the hawker market in Singapore for the variety of fresh, delicious and quick dishes, but I think the ultimate was llama in Peru, a delicious meat.
