La Bauhinia. After a long day of sightseeing in Paris, we ended up luxuriating here. I’m currently working on a more detailed Paris post, so as a taste (no pun intended), I’d like to share the scrumptious dinner by two-Michelin Star chef, Philippe Labbé.
I opted for the “The 65” three courser (costs 65 € per person).
As for the cocktail, I ordered the Kowloon Delight, paying homage to my family’s hometown.
To start, I had the Thai Yam Som’ O, a grapefruit salad topped with shrimp and spicy vinaigrette, while she had a Pad Thai.
As for my main course, I went for the Indonesian Otak Otak, which was steamed codfish in a bed of coconut curry and sweet nasi lemak rice.
I savored every bite to the very last. It was a truly delicious experience. Not to mention, the service was such a treat!
The Shangri-La, does indeed lives up to it decadent name. The decor is an amazing fusion of old-world Asian luxury with French sensibility.
I was given a nice tour around the hotel and just fell in love with the terrace view from one of the rooms.
The best view of the Eiffel Tower in Paris!
