Now, I have been 10 months in France. I want to share my best tips for food and gastronomy. Most of them located in the centrum or in the 17.arrondissement, where I leave!
In Paris, what coming for restaurants, you can find whatever kind of food.
The year has been different because of the global situation, but I regret nothing, I have spent two semesters here and more here and learned so much about myself, French culture and from people around me.
France is famous for its gastronomy. The food here is heavy with a lot of butter, cheese and creams. French food is not my favourite but here are some foods that I didn’t eat before but now I even have eating habits with them. Paris is full of amazing international restaurants; for sure you will find your favourite ones!
Before my tips, I cooked a lot with my friends, brunches and dinners. International friends taught me traditional food recipes; this activity was covid friendly as well at home.

The most famous groceries are Monoprix, Auchan, Carrefour and Super U. I used to shop in Super U, usually, it is the cheapest one. Paris is full of bio and organic shops, there you can find some vegetarian options. Picard is a grocery for frozen food of good quality.
Generally people here do shopping here in many shops. The bread purchased from boulangerie, cheese from fromagerie, fruits from outdoor marché or shop and meat from boucherie.
I love boulangeries, I buy my bread from there, usually, I buy a baguette or dark bread is called pain de seigle. My favourites sweets are pain du chocolat, croissant aux amandes and brioche. In Finland I ate just rye bread, here I am used to eating the baguette a lot!
I hope these tips helped you!
