Paris

I want to live in Paris – this city is so alive. There is so much to do and most of the city is really beautiful. Its just an awesome place to be, so much great food to eat and cook with and I like being around well dressed people, not as well dressed as Sweden, but I was still impressed. I love that Paris hasn´t sold out like the cities I visited in Italy for instance – the Parisians own Paris. I really love that they have such respect for food, hardly any supermarket and no 7 elevens. There are great markets in every area and its really hard to eat badly, the average quality of food is quite high. I didn´t encounter any rudeness and I´m pretty sure this is no longer an issue. If I lived in Paris I´d be even more of a snob, I´d want as few wankers there as possible.

I walked really far for this tart but it was so worth it. Fuck, the pastry was perfect, Ive never had anything like it. The good thing about Paris is you can kind of get good food, especially baked goods, everywhere but when you have something outstanding like this is very exciting.

Au Pied de Cochon

This is a very popular 24 hour eater and its a little tacky and popular with Parisians and tourists. The french onion soup was excellent and I think if you stick to the basics youll be okay. I ordered salmon, bad idea.

Laduree

This is an expensive cake store located on the Champs-Élysées. There is a bar in the back and a huge area where you can dine in the front. The tarts and macaroons were amazing. Ladurée made all those scrumptious cakes for Sofia Coppolas Marie Antoinette.
