Claus, the Breakfast shop – Paris
1 novembre 2015 § 1 commentaire
Just near Christian Louboutin – the red sole shoe master, you can find Claus breakfast shop. I regularly go there to buy my Mini Magoo’s granola, the only place in Paris to sell them. They have coffee beans from Coutume, Christine Feber jams and a big choice of various product from tea to eggs, dedicated to the most important meal of the day.
Also on the take away menu: coffees, pastries, cakes & flowers.
Where? 15, rue Jean-Jacques Rousseau – Paris 75001
Duck and Waffle – London
24 août 2015 § 5 Commentaires
Finally trying a restaurant with a view in London! Thanks to my friend who suggested we had breakfast at Duck and Waffle, it was one of the best surprise of the week end. You will reach the heights after taking a glass lift which will bring you to the 40th floor of the Heron Tower in a flash. If you feel dizzy, close your eyes, but it would be a pity to miss the amazing view.
I did not have high expectations on the food served in this kind of places: usually overpriced and average quality justified by the view. At Duck and Waffle, the British chef Daniel Doherty has succeeded to propose simple dishes with quality ingredients. Their specialty as its name indicates: waffles ! I was not in the mood for eating duck at 8am, neither my friend, so we took a Banana Brûlé waffle, with a delicious home made nutella topped with vanilla ice cream. A real decadent breakfast of Champions !
They have a full brunch menu, with Mimosa, Bloody Marys and Eggs cooked the way you desire. Sometimes it is ok to forget preconceptions and leave them in your cupboard to give a try to places like this one. Definitely the best breakfast experience I had so far!
Where? Heron Tower, 110 Bishopsgate, London EC2N 4AY – Booking Strongly recommended. Best moment? For sunrise early in the morning, you will not regret it!
Doughnut Plant – New York
9 février 2015 § 7 Commentaires
The best surprise of my journey was to discover a place which sold the best doughnuts I have ever tried. Until then, Krispy Kreme’s were my only reference, but I realised I was wrong – Doughnut Plant’s treats were beyond expectations. I think I have converted everyone around me to this sweet obsession. They were as surprised as I was when they bite in the dough to realise that it was not
greasy / fat / heavy at all.
It all started in 1994 when Mark Isreal took his grandfather’s doughnut recipe, using fresh seasonal fruits and roasted nuts in his glazes. He has now opened three « Plants » in New York and I heard that one will open by the end of 2015 in Long Island City. If you haven’t tried them while in New York, I would say you have missed a landmark. I never thought I would fall in love with those treats who are usually categorized under the « junk food » label. « Lire la suite »
Bob’s Kitchen – Paris
18 octobre 2014 § Poster un commentaire
One of my favorite vegetarian canteen in Paris is Bob’s Kitchen. There are 3 different addresses: Bob’s Juice bar at 15, rue Lucien Sampaix, not far from the Canal Saint Martin and Bob’s Bakery at the Halles Pajol near Gare du Nord. Bob’s Kitchen is opened for breakfast + lunch and on week ends you have an amazing brunch with pancakes.
I always take the same thing: juice from the cold pressery, a veggie stew and for dessert my favorite matcha cookie. I have not yet taken a picture of those small treats, I always forget to take one before it ends in my mouth ! The crust is made with matcha and they are filled with chocolate. I should also try their muffin one day but the cookie is too good to be missed ! :-d
Address: 74, avenue des Gravilliers – Paris 75003, not far from Pompidou and Beaubourg library.
Breakfast in Hong Kong – Australia Dairy Company
17 octobre 2014 § 1 commentaire
A must-try place for breakfast in Hong Kong is the famous Australia Dairy Company. The name can be misleading, because there is nothing Australian in the food, just the name. All my friends who already visited the city recommended this address. We were a group of 8 persons and despite the very long queue, we were sited very fastly. The motto here is: Queue, Eat, Leave ! The prices are low, from 27$ for a complete menu. I choose one with a bottle of milk + the legendary Scrambled eggs.
Even if I don’t drink milk very often, I loved the packaging of this bottle. You can also find them at all the convenience store (7/11).
It is a place to visit at least one time, and compared to other Breakfast places in HK, the scrambled eggs were very soft and had an amazing texture. You will be mixed with locals as well as tourists like me.
It is located in the North side of Kowloon park, you can take the subway at Jordan or Tsim Sha Tsui – and walk through the park.
Address : 47-49 Parkes Street and Tel: (852) 2730 1356
