Paris: Day Four.

Our last full day in Paris. Since Musee d’Orsay and Musee du Louvre were closed for a week due to the rising water level of the Seine and flooding in Paris, they were finally opening… on our last day. First stop: Musee d’Orsay.

After Musee d’Orsay, we walked towards Angelina for lunch. Angelina was the only “food” place I really wanted to go to and all I really wanted was their hot chocolate lol.

 

We ordered the Tartare de boeuf charolais au couteau facon Angelina (which is the Angelina hand-cut beef tartare, french fries, and mesclun salad). The beef was quite tasty with some mustard and spread on bread. YUM!! For dessert, I ordered le Mont-Blanc (meringue, light whipped cream, chestnut cream vermicelli) and le chocolat chaud a l’ancienne dit “l’Africain” (old-fashioned hot chocolate “l’Africain”). My sister ordered Fraisier et thé glacé Angelina (strawberry cake) and chocolat chaud au chocolat blanc (white hot chocolate). The Mont-Blanc was pretty good, but became REALLY sweet very quickly. I ended up just removing the chestnut cream vermicelli and just eating the meringue and whipped cream. But the hot chocolate was so delicious, especially with the whipped cream. YES. Hundred times YES. I would go back to Paris just for that lol.

After eating, we had to burn off all those calories so we headed to the Louvre, which is the second largest museum in the world. Good thing the Louvre closes late on Wednesdays cause we were going to need a couple of hours…
