Sometimes only a burger will do @ Cantine California, Paris

A month ago when the weather finally started to improve, I decided to start my hunt for a decent burger in Paris. I actually don’t fancy eating burgers in the winter they seem more of a summer food. Back home in London I love GBK, my gorgeous Australian friend Ms Claire introduced me to that particular Kiwi chain many moons ago and nothing comes close to matching my love for it. Living in Paris, anything foreign especially American fast food seems to have some unnatural appeal and le burger well it is on a pedestal, when Burger King opened its first store here  in December 2013 after a 15 year hiatus there was a 2 hour queue for le whopper – quite!

Une Lunch Carte of Foodie Surprises @ David Toutain, Paris

Where does an indecisive, solo dining, 30something, finicky, foodie choose to eat on her birthday?

Ever since I started working over 15 years ago I made a vow to myself not to ever work on my birthday.   I wasn’t working the day I came into this world so why should I be on the anniversary of that day – simples! It’s  just that this year I had no idea of what I wanted to do.  It felt as if I’ve come full circle 4 years ago when I came to this country I took myself to Angelina for their legendary hot chocolate and walked around my new hometown.
