On our recent trip to Paris, my cousin and I were determined from day-1 to have a meal at the famous Parisian tea salon – Ladurée. He was excited about the macaroons and I, the overall dinning experience.
Walking down the more common streets of Paris, we went past a few local branches, all of which were packed with “Q”s literally to the doorsteps. We did not want our experience to be one with stress so we decided to go in for an early breakfast on a Sunday morning instead.
I love the whole theme of the salon, from the interior decor to the choice of colour palettes – tableware, packaging and signages. It feels like we were ported back in time, living in the era where most people spend their afternoons hanging out at tea rooms – Classy, elegant and sophisticated.
Between the two of us, we had 2 types of omelletes, a chamomile tea, a cup of thick hot choco and a plate of freshly baked bread (complimentary).
Being mindful of the French etiquette in dinning, I refused to ask for a less runny omellete, although that is what I really want. To my surprise, the eggs came out perfectly.
The whole experience was fantastic, the food was good and the staff were friendly. We ordered some macaroons to bring back to our hotel since both of us were so full after our breakfast meal. Another great dinning experience while travelling.
