You want me to tell you? I love the Galeries Lafayette Gourmet ! For a year, I am passionate increasingly about kitchen and I’m always looking for something new. I am particularly interested in everything that is healthy. With this new gastronomic temple (it was renovated in September), I could not help but be delighted. It’s already been a while that I wanted to share with you this place.
I love the restaurants corners they have set up, you can eat at the fish shop, the butcher, the fromager, Chinese, etc. There are a lot of possibilities! That day, I chose the cheese curiosity (last time it was fish, delicious!). The dishes they offer cheese base are really good. We tested two a Parmesan crisp vegetables and a tomato tart goat, a real delight. I also enjoyed seeing the preparations and the principle of the bar.
After enjoying a lunch rather light (these are not big plates), you can eat with your eyes all around you. Start with the vegetables, they are sublime and to my surprise, affordable (if one puts aside the French strawberries, which were a little overpriced). Tackle then spices, rich in color. Go through oils, vinegars, pickles. There you can visit Mariage Frères, probably the best tea of Paris. You will find 100g jars for 15 €, a small luxury that makes me happy each morning. You can find infuse teas bags at Palais desThés much cheaper than Mariage Frères.
Continue your walk among the teas and herbal teas, they are many (but not enough for me, I am demanding for such things). Then browse, cookies and chocolate bars.
If you are more salty and you like a little exoticism, continue your road you will come to the bottom of grocery stores of the world with US cereal packets, peanut butter and other specialties. There is also a space for English, Indian, Japanese, Chinese, something to test several tastes. Finally, pasta, Italy. There are a lot of pasta of all kinds and of all colors and all ready risottos. You’re sure to find your happiness.
However, if you are focused on organic food, turn back. No gluten free and very little organic, kind of what I tend to criticize elsewhere. Go for the “good food” with the calories that come with it. You can find some healthy hope with bottles VOSS Water therein sales, trendy.
Finally, this is a nice place and well done. There we find a lot of interesting every products. Take your time and hang around the aisles as I love to do. Climb as seen in the floors to find molds, pans, etc. And if you have not had lunch there, go take a few bites vapors at Yoom, they are delicious! A negative small detail, if you have a specific idea in mind, you will find alone or maybe it is you’ll be lucky, do not forget that it is Paris …
So, next, La Grande Épicerie de Paris, another place I love.
