PARIS Part 4

Musee d' Orsay 

GIANT eclairs!

                                                   Cafe Campana inside of Musee d' Orsay

Champagne for The Hub's and ice tea for me :)

Foie Gras w/ Fig & Port wine reduction & Pear chutney

OMMMMMMMMMMMMMMG OMG OMG!  This was some of the best foie gras I've ever had.. and I can't believe I had it at a museum cafe.. the Fig & Port wine reduction was what really made it that much more amazing.  The Hub's and I were basically fighting for the Fig & Port wine reduction sauce.. I.WANT.MORE. hahahahah

Seriously I'm like salivating as I look at this picture.. I know it just looks aiight' in the pic but it was DECEPTIVELY delicious!

Duck breast salad w/ poached egg

Nommy runny poached egg.. the rest of the dish was just blehh.. they put too much sauce on it and the sauce was really sour -___- 

Coffee Eclair

This was so nommy.. it was probably roughly the size of 3 eclairs.. they called it "Extreme Eclair" on the menu puhahaha.. it was delicious though the coffee cream inside was rich and slightly sweet... and the eclair itself tasted like the outside of a cream puff! 

The museum's architecture is AMAZING!  I was so excited to go to the Musee d' Orsay because the last time we were in Paris we only had time to go to the Louvre museum to see the Mona Lisa.. BUT my favorite artists are Monet, Degas and Renoir and the Musee d' Orsay has an AMAZING collection of those 3 artists.

Locks of Love


I miss Costco Churro's :(  These weren't as good *bleh* gimme a Costco Churro any day hahaha :p

Ham & Cheese crepe

This was DELISH!!  She put like a pound of cheese in the crepe.. Cheese makes everything better hahaha



Where dreams are made of!!  When we were in this mall.. I kept repeating over and over how I wished I could just move into this mall.


The little "rock crystals" were actually pieces of dried fruit.. and the whole thing was dusted in real gold and silver dust.

The inside was really dry.. it's typical of Christmas fruitcake.. and I'm not really a fan of Christmas fruitcake.. soooo.. hahaha

Foie Gras pastry

This was yummy but.. to quote The Hubs "I can't believe I paid $6 Euro's for a really good Chinatown bun" BAHAHAHAHA.. it was really nommy.. but for $6 Euro's (nearly $10 USD) I could have bought an entire box of something similar in Chinatown. 

                  I would say skip Pouchkine and head over to Laduree!  You won't be disappointed :) 

*Sigh* Bye bye Paris!  It's been fun :)!

I hope you guys enjoyed visiting Paris with me!
