Arc de Triomphe, Champs-Élysées, Laduree, Galaries Lafayette ,Pierre Herme, Paris 2014 巴黎自由行

 
Lets continue with the Paris and London trip update. Actually I still have many outstanding trips yet to post, Hanoi, Kelantan, Taiping, Tokyo & Hokkaido and Cameron Highlands, not sure I can finish update or not..
This is Arc de Triomphe, we just have a short visit only.





Champs-Élysées- a street with luxury branded shops, restaurants, café &etc

 
Stopped by here for a quick lunch..nothing to shout out..




 
continue our walk

 
Paul, a famous bakery shop



 
my daughter happily took a photo in front of Laduree shop. Her dream now comes true..

 
Long Q...surprised that my daughter said don't want to wait and she suggested go to PH macaron instead. Actually we already had both Laduree and PH macaron during Tokyo trip. She actually not that excited now..

 





Galaries Lafayette, just nearby the hotel we stayed. A nice shopping place!
 
Luxury deco..



 
We had a nice dinner at this restaurant just nearby our hotel

We had this very nice Canard à l'orange ( Duck breast in Orange sauce) , you can check my recipe here.





 
Pierre Herme shop

 
Giant size of Ispahan, Euro 60 for each, anyone? definitely not for me  (My daughter told me she saw the price was Euro 17, i am sure which price is correct )




 
A small garden opposite the PH's shop

 
I guess many peoples enjoyed PH macaroons here, see so many PH's stickers on the bench, hehehe..


PH's Isaphan, a heavenly macaron, even I am not a sweet person, but this is the most yummy sweet  that I have ever had !!! I wish I can have this Isaphan on my own! I just curious how they make the small dot water on the rose petal, amazing!


 
PH's macarons has many difference creation of flavours, so creative!

Sonia, your daughter has made such a wise choice :-) Whenever I go to Paris Pierre Hermé's shop is the most important on my schedule. He does the best macarons in the world! I think Ladurée is much too sweet (I have several Ladurée shops here in my Swiss city, but I don't even look at them since I discovered Pierre Hermé.... his macarons are much much less sweet and much more sophisticated; in the winter he makes for example a white truffle one! So powerful in fragrance, they sell it in separate box or bag). I see you have had a wonderful time in Paris.

Li Shuan said that Laduree Paris is so much better than our Sydney branch, so if, only if I have duit pergi, I think I will try there, hehehe. By the way, the PH's cakes look so beautiful, would have problem to choose for one! Eh, by the way, you can try making the one that you bought, I'm weak when I see raspberries, something that I must try!
