Sorry for the latest vanishing act from Milly and I
We found ourselves busy in new projects so had to neglect our blog for a bit…!
Now were back, we left you in Mexico but now find ourselves in Switzerland, to be more specific the small eden of Gstaad!
We will be spending most of the winter months here, with a couple of special trips coming up!

This week’s Japanese new entry on our Unmissable when in Paris list:
Found by accident while heading to another place that unfortunately ended up being fully booked.
Milly really wanted to eat SHABU SHABU
” The dish is related to sukiyaki in style, in that both use thinly sliced meat and vegetables and are usually served with dipping sauces, but it is considered to be more savory and less sweet than sukiyaki”
Knowing that Rue ST ANNE near OPERA is famous for housing most Japanese restaurants we decided to make our way there.
We came across Koetsu and were intrigued by it’s Michelin Star and promise of the sought after dish!
The food turned out to be DELICIOUS! The SHABU SHABU was one of the best we’ve have had in a while!
STRONGLY RECOMMEND YOU TRY IT!
Sea Weed Salad :
The Hot Stove
The delicious looking Meat
The egg in which you dip the shabu shabu once it’s cooked
Adding the Ingredients
Adding the Soy, water and sugar sauce to the mix
How good does this look!
Mango and Melon

10 years in Paris and I only found out night one of Parisians best kept secrets?? unbelievable!!
As you step into Tzukuzi you know that you are in atypical no frills Japanese restaurant and by the look of the sushi master’s concentrated faces while they prepare sushi you know you are in for the real thing!! All that is served there is indeed sushi plus a few seaweed salads and miso soup ( delicious ). You will instantly know you are in the right place when you realize almost all patrons are in fact Japanese, and that is always a significant sign of excellency!
We had sushi, rolls, maki and sashimi of all kinds. Loved it and certainly without a doubt will be back for more! Unmissable when in Paris, trust me!!

There are two places I cannot miss going to when in Paris: the Ban Thai Spa in rue Dauphine in the 6ème and the Khao Thai restaurant across the street from it.
The spa is a luxurious hassle free jump into Thailand, only a few steps away from where I live and so exotic and relaxing. I have tried the traditional Thai massage and the foot reflexology massage during my travels around Thailand and they are just the same! I only tried those there too but they do have a long list of massages on their menu you can choose from. A team of graciousThai girls in black uniforms are there to greet you and make you comfortable. They look frail but don’t be fooled by that, they can twist you around, lift you and put fold you in the most amazing positions! Thai massage is often referred to as lazy man’s yoga… so be lazy and indulge in this reinvigorating practice!
Once out of there nothing better to dwell in the exotic experience while eating at the small and quaint Thai restaurant across the road: The Khao Thai. In a beautiful exotic decor with a contemporary twist just like the spa we had the Pad Thai with shrimps, ( stir-fried rice noodles with tamarind sauce ) the coconut milk chicken Tom Kha Kai soup, vegetable nems ( spring rolls ) beef peanut curry and for dessert we shared sweet sticky rice with coconut milk and mango… deliciously melting in our mouths. Unmissable when in Paris!!!

When in Paris Milly and I love heading to our local japanese restaurant together. Located in Saint Germain, Azabu has stoled our heart with its authentic delicious plates ever since we found it.
Last week when we went there we ordered one of their usual menus with the choice of Crevettes (shrimps) as a main course.
We strongly recommend it to all of those who love a cosy restaurant without overbearing noise and mouthwatering food!
I can never remember the name of this egg made starter…(help)
