Le Coude Fou –  12 Rue Du Bourg Tibourg , Paris,France.

Flashback to Paris and a cozy, little bistro just a short walk from the Bastille metro. We ate here on suggestion from a friend and we enjoyed it so much that we went back for seconds the next night (hence the second lot of photos – no, we didn’t eat that many dishes in one go!)

The whole menu was in French and after a few days in this city you get the hang of what and how to order, plus one of our friends spoke some French helping us out 🙂 My foie gras main and the chocolate fondue were responsible for the party in my mouth and tummy – loved it! When we came the next night, the foie  gras dish was not available so it gave me the chance to try something different. All dishes were served with a welcoming smile and the quirky artwork on the walls were equally welcoming. such a charming Parisian bistro with an inviting atmosphere.

Hopefully when we get the chance to visit Le Coude Fou again it will be just as memorable the first time.

Travel Tuesdays – Touching down in Paris ’09

I will never forget hubby’s face as we walked up and out of the metro into the world of Paris, France. After a long and tiresome flight he was just in awe at the beautiful buildings and scenery – like everywhere we looked was straight out of glamorous magazine shoot or an old school movie. We spent 8 nights in Paris for the last leg of our honeymooon and I can’t wait to go back! Here are just a few first pics we took on our first day there.
