Exactly a month ago was my arrival in France. Before landing, I silently short-cried in my seat (good thing my seat was private) upon seeing the city lights of Paris from the plane. I tried looking for Eiffel from my seat but because my eyesight is getting poorer (and I don't want to wear glasses for that trip, which I later regret), I didn't see it.
Out of the plane, I hurried to get out of the airport because TIME IS GOLD! Luckily, my chauffeur, thanks again to @emirates, was already waiting for me on the exit.
Unfortunately, the traffic was absolutely disappointing. It was not as bad as EDSA, but it was still saddening; my 45-min travel became 1.5 hours. And so when I finally reached my hotel, I checked in, dropped my things, and started walking.
First things first----FOOD. Although I had breakfast on the plane, I felt the hunger because of the traffic. So I went to L'As du Fallafel; they said it has the best falafel in the city. I got there around 11:30AM and, boy, the line was really long so it's an indication that the place is doing something right.
Tada! I got to warn you that you have to be very hungry before buying because they serve big portions! I wasn't able to finish this until dinner. Also, use fork when eating because it's overflowing and it's just less messy. Lastly, there's something intriguing about the eggplant because it's so good! The whole of it was so good! I just wish I have a slice of lemon to balance the acidity.
If ever you're in Paris, do yourself a favor and drop by here. Note though that falafel is not a French food, it's Middle Eastern, but you'll still never regret it.
