Parisians are known for their love for all things sweet. If you have a sweet tooth like I do, you will fall in love with their cute patisseries and boulangeries! Of course, Macarons are great, but I would strongly recommend you to try the Crepes, Eclairs, and Meringue on your Paris food tour.

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day and there’s nothing that I love more than a hearty English breakfast. French breakfast is almost the same as English breakfast, minus the eggs.

Breakfast in France typically consists of a Baguette (French bread) with butter and jam, or a Croissant, orange juice and a hot drink (coffee, tea or hot chocolate).

I’m personally not a big fan of Baguettes as I find them a bit too hard. But I’m nuts about Croissants! And when it comes to Croissants, no one makes it better than the French do. It is definitely a must-try on your Paris food tour.

That soft, buttery goodness always made my day! I do love eggs for breakfast. However, I don’t mind going without them as long as I have a Croissant that melts in your mouth.

For lunch, you can try the sandwiches. Since they make the sandwiches using Baguettes, I used to steer clear of them as they’re way too chewy for my taste. Instead, I used to settle for Omelettes or a Quiche Lorraine. Fries are, of course, served with almost anything you order.

Paris is undoubtedly, a food-lover’s paradise. In the limited time I had, I was able to taste only a small fraction of the delights the city offers. My taste buds certainly had a gala time on my Paris food tour!

I would love to know about some more French delights I might have missed, that are a must-try on a Paris food tour. Feel free to share in the comments below!

  1. It’s funny how people tend to associate French food in general to just being “Parisian food”! In reality, Paris doesn’t have many local specialities. But if you wanna try some traditional French food, I’d definitely recommend Raclette, Fondue Savoyarde or Bourguignonne, and salty crepes (crêpes salées or galettes!) Bon appétit 😉

    My favourite food in Paris were the croque monsieur and the croque madame for lunch. And then I had a delicious steak for dinner in a lovely bistrot and I will never forget that!
