French food is known worldwide for its flavour and finesse. France has a rich culinary history, from delicious rustic foods to the most technical haute cuisine masterpieces. Planning an unforgettable trip to Paris? Between casual strolls along the Seine River and stops to enjoy the remarkable monuments and historic sites, make sure you try some of the city’s most delicious foods, such as:
Trying steak frites (a plate with a cut of meat and French fries) in the capital of France is a must. Le Relais de l’Entrecôte serves the most delicious steak frites in Paris!
Soupe à l’oignon
Soupe à l’oignon is a traditional French soup made with beef or chicken stock and onions, typically served with croutons and melted cheese on top. Head to the Bistrot des Vosges to taste the best Soupe à l’oignon in the city!
Perfect for cold evenings, Beef Bourguignon is a classic French beef stew made with mushrooms, pearl onions and red wine. Carefully done, and perfectly flavoured, Beef Bourguignon is definitely one of the tastiest beef dishes to try in the City of Lights. This beef dish is Le Bourguignon du Marais’ speciality.
French croissants are perfect for breakfast or an afternoon snack. Keep in mind that the "ordinary croissant" may be made with margarine and it isn’t as rich and flaky as the croissant au beurre, which is made with high-end French butter.
The small sandwich cookie traditionally made with meringue and almond flour and filled with buttercream, jam or ganache is a classic French dessert most tourists fall in love with. Just visit the world-famous Ladurée patisserie, buy some delicious macarons, and you won’t be disappointed.
