Italian tapas-style snack bar Vico offers tasty little bites that can be freely combined to any dish you like. And all that at a pretty good price. Vico is an Italian place right between Soho and Covent Garden at Camrbidge Circus, opened in late August 2015. The restaurant offers a range of Italian dishes, presented kind of like at a Spanish tapas bar. The space is designed nicely and very simple, with only high tables and bar stools. This means, it is not a restaurant where you want to go, sit down and have a long dinner, it's more the place to have a quick snack. I selected four little bites, and the deep fried lasagne ball was my clear favourite. This little ball is full of flavour just delicious. Strong second was the prosciutto and mozzarella pizza slice, another tasty treat. The pizza with only pepper and and grated cheese was something I had never seen before, so I was intrigued to try it - and I liked it. I also had a deep fried ricotta ball which was not quite as great as the lasagne ball. The only real disappointment was the wine offering - with only Pinot Grigio on tap, I decided to go for a San Pellegrino lemonade instead. But as they just opened, they might extend the wine list over the next few weeks or months. Overall, I think Vico delivers delicious food at a fair price. The staff are very friendly and helpful. I liked the atmosphere, and as a bonus you can get great ice cream from Gelupo without even leaving the place. But it is not your typical Italian restaurant, so if you are looking for that, Vico is perhaps not the best choice.

Promenade Plantée in Paris is a beautiful green strip lined with trees, flowers and interesting views of ordinary Paris streets. When I planned my trip to Paris, I somewhere came across Promenade Plantée and decided that walking along a park occupying the route of a disused railway line might be a nice way to start my holiday after sitting in the train for a few hours. It was a great idea, because I was not staying far from Promenade Plantée, and so I enjoyed a lovely walk. Following the park from one end to the other did not only offer a little bit of nature in the middle of the city, but also opened up interesting views down on the streets of Paris from viaducts. I think Promenade Plantée is a great park that is perhaps even more popular with locals than with tourists. You can find many beautiful plants and when you're tired, simply rest a bit on one of the benches and enjoy the trees and flowers around you. I was surprised to learn that Promenade Plantée in Paris is older than the similar but much more famous High Line park in New York.

Ten Belles, only a few steps from Canal Saint-Martin around the 10th and 11th arrrondissement is perhaps one of the nicest coffee shops in Paris. It's possibly also one of the tiniest. On my final day in Paris on my way to Gare du Nord in the 10th arrondissement, I decided to walk along Canal Saint-Martin and stop at Ten Belles. Now, I was a bit disappointed by the canal, I think the bit North of Ten Belles seems nicer than the bit South of it. However, the walk was definitely worth it, because Ten Belles is a very nice little coffee shop - and I even bumped into the barista of a other Paris coffee shop I talked to on my first day in the city. A let down for the tourist, they do not have wifi - no problem for me, as I had gotten myself a SIM card immediately after I arrived in Paris. On the other hand, good for the tourist perhaps, the place seemed to be popular with expats or foreign students, so you can easily order your coffee in English - as almost everywhere in Paris. Ten Belles serves great coffee and I also enjoyed their homemade iced tea on this pretty and sunny summer Monday. If I would live in Paris, I'm sure Ten Belles would be one of the places I would visit regularly - staff are really friendly and it is just a beautiful little spot.

Loustic on a tiny street in the third arrondissement is a good place for a decent coffee at a pretty central location. Not more, not less. Loustic feels to me like a relatively French version of a hip coffee shop. It's a nice little place, but I made the capital error and asked for a flat white. I should have known better - as I was lectured, in France they don't do flat whites. So instead, I then asked for the piccolo that was listed on the menu - which is actually pretty similar to a flat white, just with less milk. And it looked like a small flat white, too. Thus I could hardly hide my smile when the barista walked over with my cup. The chocolate cookie I also had tasted nice and the staff were overall friendly, even though the "we don't do this" reply was kind of unnecessary in my opinion, as they sort of do it anyway. At least, this was perhaps the only time that any of the Parisians I met lived up to their reputation, so I should probably thank the barista for this authentic encounter with French culture...

A la Biche au Bois near Bastille is a down-to-earth restaurant that I think does really tasty and authentic French food at a fair price. I would definitely go there again. After arriving in Paris and walking along Promenade Plantée, I decided to go somewhere in the evening not too far from where I stayed. I ended up at A la Biche au Bois in the 12th arrondissement. I started my dinner with a special of the day, mixed pâté of pork and rabbit. It was an interesting combination and I did enjoy it together with the nice bread they served with it. I even gave in when the waiter suggested an aperitif - it was my first evening in Paris after all. The drink was based on red wine, mixed with black currant juice and plum schnaps - a pretty boozy way to start dinner. I ordered a white wine as a light option following the strong aperitif. It was not as dry as I would have liked, but it was alright. I wanted to eat a traditional main and went for the coq au vin. It was a rather big portion with a very tasty, rich sauce and tender chicken pieces. The boiled potatoes were surprisingly soft, they were almost melting in the mouth - delicious. I must admit that the pot was a bit too much for me, but I tried my best, while unfortunately spilling some sauce on my shirt... And because I was in France, I could not leave the restaurant without tasting their cheeses. The friendly waiter explained the options they had, and I quite enjoyed the little selection. Towards the end, service became a little bit slow, but overall I did like the atmosphere and the staff. There was one very young waiter, one older one who was never quite happy with whatever the younger did and a lovely, funny waitress. They were all pretty different and having them all around and watch them working guaranteed an entertaining dinner. Really, A la Biche au Bois is a great, rustic restaurant that will fill you up with tasty food, while not being very expensive.

Steaking in Saint Germain is an excellent, modern restaurant that I can strongly recommend to anyone who likes a juicy steak. When preparing my city break to Paris, I came across Steaking and thought it sounded like an interesting place. So I ventured to the fashionable Saint Germain neighbourhood in the 6th arrondissement on a Sunday evening. When I walked in, there actually was just a Swiss family at a neighbouring table and we had a very nice conversation. I kind of agree with them, Steaking is maybe not the most catchy and creative name, but there are more important things to a good restaurant than the name. And perhaps "Steaking" appeals to some French customers as it does possibly sound somewhat modern. Useful for the tourist, they have free wifi. I started my dinner with a white wine and quite enjoyed the Chablis they offered by the glass. The bread and butter I had as starter were pretty good. Given the name of the restaurant, it was not really a question what to order - the decision was only between different cuts and origins. I risked annoying the French kitchen staff and asked for my fillet steak to be cooked medium rare and not bloody as recommended. After a short wait, the extremely simply dressed plate arrived and it was a very delicious piece of meat. The beef juice I had with it as sauce was also great with a strong beef flavour. I also liked the handy pepper mill on the table. The chips were soft, something I've noticed at a few other French restaurants before. But despite the lack of crispyness that I usually like, the chips were well-cooked, had a golden colour and tasted lovely. For dessert, I ordered the hot fudge which surprised me, as it came in a glass, and I think was not really that hot. But it was pretty tasty in any case. My waitress was very friendly throughout the entire evening which made my meal even more delightful. She helped me with my choices and was just really nice. You always tend to compare new experiences to something you know, and overall, Steaking reminded me a tiny bit of Hawksmoor steak restaurants in London. If anything, I think this is a compliment. The style and colours are beautiful with mostly dark brown tones and matching lighting. The background music they played was also fine for me, at some points perhaps a bit loud. Mainly it was enjoyable, and the jazz kind of songs added to the relaxed atmosphere. Admittedly, my sample size of Paris steak restaurants is pretty small, but Steaking is definitely a nice place that I would visit again.

Maison Bastille is a lovely, light and simply stunning little cafe and deli with a tasty breakfast offering - including homemade jams and interesting juices. On my last day in Paris during a recent trip to the French capital, I was walking from my Airbnb room around Bastille towards the centre, when I stumbled across this little place in a side street. Maison Bastille looked so beautiful from the outside that I decided to give it a try and have breakfast there. The place is very bright, with white paint and light wood dominating the interior. The design is modern, it combines simple, clean lines with colourful flowers. I ordered bread and jam, and was impressed to hear that they make all the jams in-house. The owner brought over three large pots of jam, one was apricot mixed with something I forgot, the other one was apple and cinnamon, and the third one which I did not try, was green tomato, as far as I remember. The bread was delicious and the jams tasted just amazing. To add something typical French, as suggested by the woman running the shop, I also had a soft-boiled egg with bread buttered strips for breakfast. It was nice with the runny egg yolk just right for dipping. As unconventional as the jams were also the juices. When I went there, she had prepared a strawberry and apple juice - a funny mix that actually tasted nice. What a great find - Maison Bastille is definitely an excellent spot for a relaxed and very delicious breakfast. They also offer decent coffee - I tried a blend from the same roaster at a different shop and really liked it.
