What to Do / Eat in Paris, France

Art Ludique Museum – I think it’s gone now, but there was a DC Comics exhibit in the Art Ludique Museum that was pretty fascinating.

Disneyland Paris – Despite the bizarre absence of churros (and generally uninspired food choices), Disneyland Paris is a lot of fun.

Eiffel Tower – What, are you going to visit Paris and not go to the Eiffel Tower?  Get out of here.  My suggestion: assuming you have the stamina, take the stairs instead of the elevator.  It’s cheaper, the line is shorter, and it’s a much more memorable experience.

The Louvre – Its most famous occupant, the Mona Lisa, is a crowded let-down, but the rest of the museum is spectacular.

L’As Du Fallafel – It might seem odd to want to seek out falafel in Paris, but L’As Du Fallafel lives up to the hype.

Berthillon – Mind-blowingly good ice cream.  Crazy good.  Ridiculously good.  Don’t miss it.

Croissants – I rounded up nine croissants I ate in Paris, and then named my favourite.

Ham baguettes and crepes – Sometimes the simplest things are the best.

McDonald’s – Quite possibly the most boring McDonald’s menu of anywhere I’ve been.

Au Pied du Cochon – I didn’t think it was possible, but the French onion soup here might have been too cheesy.

Le Relais de l’Entrecote – This place serves steak frites, steak frites, and steak frites.  If you want something other than steak and french fries?  Go somewhere else.  There isn’t even a menu — the only questions are what you want to drink, and how you want your steak cooked.
