On our first day in Paris, we spent the first quarter of the day, making the best of our last day in London (well for a week and a half, at least!) We arrived at St Pancras bright and early in the morning, just in time for a quick bite, which we settled for some Japanese food!
Paris Travel Log Day One : Paris Gare Du Nord, Le Potager , the Eiffel Tower and more!
(A quick snap at St. Pancras International! I especially love the neon sign on the right and the general design of the station! If you didn’t already know, it’s a station with quite a bit of history! I would have loved to see it back in its “heyday”!)
We ate at this “fast food” Japanese joint called “Yo! Sushi”. Here’s what we ordered/ picked off the conveyer belt!
(The definite article: Salmon sashimi and sushi! It was just okay though; 6.75/10)
(Yakisoba! My favourite dish from Osaka! This one was better, though not by much; 7.25/10)
(Pork Ramen! Not too bad as well; 7.75/10)
(The ubiquitous Gyoza. This was the best of the lot! 8/10)
(Just before I boarded, I bought a VR headset for some “in-flight” entertainment!)
(One thing I wish would be the option to watch the above films in VR mode! Eurostar, take note!)
(Paris Gare Du Nord is a mammoth place! It took us a while to get where we wanted to (in order to take the bus to our hotel)! )
(I love the street art in Paris! Looks so modern yet chic!)
(Some shots of my family in Paris, taken just before we went for dinner at THE BEST place I ate at in Paris!)
(It’s no other than Le Potager! Their selection of food is just like my writing: concise and succinct!)
(The fish that my mom had! It wasn’t incredibly great or anything like that; 7.25/10)
(The seafood this my dad ordered! This one was better! 8.5/10)
(And the star of the show! The pork steak I ate! It was simply outstanding. So many flavour profiles all mingling together to “pull the show” off! 10/10!)
(After dinner, we went for a walk, when I passed by this storefront! Let me let you in on something: I eventually returned to this shop and bought something which you can see in this photo! To find out more, stay tuned for my future travel log posts!)
(Finally, what would a travel log on Paris be without some photos of the Eiffel Tower?)
Thanks for reading all the way to the end of my travel log! I post them up every Sunday 3pm (Singapore Standard Time)! Do check back in every Sunday for some awesome posts!
