No matter how popular this ‘activity’ is in France. It was actually of Swiss origin. The just of raclette is… eat as much melted cheese as humanly possible. Welcome to my new series about how to integrate better in France! I hope this series will capture my journey as a new immigrant here in Paris.
In line with tradition, it’s a year in foodporn. Here’s my top 10 pick this year. It’s all about how these food make me feel. Nostalgic stuff. Counting my blessings.
Precisely, afternoon tea at The Georgian. The Georgian has been around since 1913. Harrods is ‘slightly older’, born 1834. If old school English charm is what you seek, I think this is the right place. I am a sucker for that traditional feeling.
Besides the regular a la carte, on the menu… the chef can cook anything (LOVE & SHOUTOUT!!!). I love restaurants with this level of confidence. I have been to this restaurant multiple times. This Bangladeshi restaurant rocks! I guess I really should share this.
The original dish name was Filets de Poisson en Écailles Croustillantes. This mouthful name of a dish was the actual name. lol. The quickest that I’ve ever completed this dish was 1.5 hours. Got to love cooking to do this & I LOVE this dish 😉 Here is the recipe to recreate Paul Bocuse’s signature dish at home.
We were a table of 12. It was instant magic, 12 people fitted into a 6 -8 seater.
Guess what KFC stands for? Korean Fried Chicken (LOL) no kidding.
Environment: Lovely warm ambiance. Spacious and high ceiling. Toilet was spacious too; can improve by applying more diligence.
Service: Great! Attentive and they even held the wine bottle properly (At last, someone who actually knew how to waiter properly)
Food: They messed up my tuna steak – over cooked, way too much salt AND managed to make the fish texture hard (from dehydration?) 🙁
Fondant au chocolate – Tasted good, the plating was a bit sad.
In short: elegant environment, lovely service, overpriced… and atlas, mediocre if not poorly made cuisine. Will not return for sure.
How to get here?
Nearest tube: Green Park station
Bring some dear friends. Good company is the best recipe for any fab restaurant expe

I personally take cooking very seriously. However, food is a very personal experience and taste is a subjective fickle matter.
