Le Hangar

12 Impasse Berthaud,

It’s next to Anne Frank Garden. Relaxed atmosphere. Good food, and service. Not inexpensive. They close in the afternoon, between lunch and dinner.

Apple is Paris

Or shall I say, an American in Paris? It used to be the American embassies that I like to look for. It was easy because they always hosed in the grandest building in the trendy area. I even lined up a few, to apply for US visa. (Of course got rejected …)

Now, it’s Apple stores that I look for, for the same reason. Their stores in the Big Apple NYC.

@ Champs-Élysées is opposite from LV, with nice stairs.

Cafe de l’Eglise


2 place Franz Liszt
Strasbourg-St Denis/Bonne Nouvelle

An average café in the Café Capital of the world. It’s nice, looks out to St. Vincent de Paul.

There is a harem which I find cute. For this, I’ll return.

Le Petit Retro

We first went to La Coincidence whose motto is no frozen food. But unable to get a table – fully booked.

We walked a few steps and dined at Le Petit Retro @ 5 Rue Mesnil 75116, Paris.

It has high ceiling, tiled walls and ceiling. Pretty quaint and neat. Again, English is spoken more than French. The area is on the expensive so you’re paying for the real estate. Good service but food is average. I like the decoration more then food they service.

One of desserts is Lost french-toast … sorry didn’t try. I don’t think everything has to match but the handles of this tea set are all different. The tea pot’s handle is the easiest to use.

Cafe Louis


154 ave de Versailles
75016 Paris, France

3.5 really.

It feels a little ‘Americans in Paris’. English (mostly American) is prevalent during the time we were there. Tap beers. English menu.

A pleasant bistro. Decent food. Slow service (which is normal – one staff). I ordered the wine but the staff let my friend to do the taste.

Onion soup is huge.

The escargots are room temperature, so is the creme brûlée, both are pretty good.

The duck is good, and the mini potatoes are hot and yummy.

Oh one of the desserts is called Leftover Bread – thank to their honesty but em… I didn’t try.
