I want to recommend you guys a really good vegetarian restaurant in Paris. It’s called Bob’s Kitchen and it’s situated on Rue des Gravilliers. I wouldn’t even call this place a restaurant, since it’s very low-key, and the atmosphere here is extremely homey and friendly. Bob’s Kitchen is more of a diner for locals.
I ordered this carrot and sesame soup with coriander. It was really good and warming, but it did remind me a lot of my own seasonal soup with butternut squash, carrot, pear and coriander! Mine might even be a little better.
Hannes had the Indonesian style veggie stew with roasted sweet potatoes and beetroots. There was also rice with sweet coco milk in it, delicious! I’m thinking of recreating this dish in my own kitchen soon.
So, make sure you visit this cosy little place next time you’re in Paris! As I mentioned before, it’s situated on Rue des Gravilliers (close to Marais), although it’s a bit hard to find if you’re not looking for it specifically. But isn’t that often the case with the best restaurants?
Here’s what Hannes and I had for fika today. Sadly, lately both of us have been so busy with school and work (especially him), that we’ve hardly had any time to hang out! Even though we live together, sometimes we only have the chance to see each other for a quick lunch and before going to bed. This is why simply having a coffee and a chat together has turned into valuable quality time these days!
And below you can see what I documented from the dinner I had with my family the other day:
My mum brought me a package of quail eggs last week. And maybe I’m being silly, but I just can’t find a way to eat them! They’re so tiny and cute that I can’t bring myself to breaking them in order to make a sunny side up breakfast or simply boiling them.
What a dilemma.
I’m drinking a blueberry milkshake as I’m writing this. Making it couldn’t be easier!
- vanilla ice-cream
- blueberry jam
…and a stick blender!
Mix your milk and ice-cream using the stick blender. If you like a really thick milkshake (like Hannes does), then you’ll need to add more ice-cream. I don’t like it to be very thick, so I add more milk.
Add a couple of tablespoons of the blueberry jam and mix again. The taste will vary depending on the amount jam you add, and so will the color. You can make your milkshake turn pastel lavender or bright purple, and everything in between!
