The Sunken Chip

Reviewing this place is hard and a little bit painful for me. Because I’ve been following their instagram since 2016 and it has been featured in so many big magazines or newspapers. So, I kinda have high hopes for the food that they are serving. What can go wrong, right?

My husband and I, we love fish ‘n chips. I mean, love it a lot! I have been telling him about this place and how much I wanted to try eating here. Finally, when we went to Paris, the first stop that we’ve made, this place. I was too excited to be here. We saw the menu, and we chose the classic fish ‘n chips.

However, when the food arrived, I was disappointed and a little bit heartbroken. It didn’t lift up my expectation. First of all, I didn’t know that the batter was beer batter. I have malt intolerance so that beer would be a big no no for me. This was my biggest mistake because I didn’t check it first. But still, it didn’t justify the taste. It wasn’t as good as I thought would be. Secondly, the fries were soggy with oil. My husband is one of those people who rarely give a comment or complain about anything. This time he complained. He said this would be the first and the last. I couldn’t agree more for this. I was very sad when I ate my food. I couldn’t finish it anyway because I started to feel numb on my lips.

*sigh*

Oh well, sometimes it can be hit or miss, right?

Notting Hill Coffee

I never like the idea to have breakfast in the hotel. I prefer to explore cafe in the city. That is why I love to choose a hotel that located in the city center where you can find a place to eat easily.

Before we left for Paris, we went to the Lille city center to have a breakfast in one of the hippest coffee places in town. The place called the Notting Hill coffee. I think that they have few locations in Lille. But we went to the one across the Lille opera house.

It was Monday morning. Surprisingly, they weren’t busy.  So, we were enjoying our breakfast more relax. I love the idea that the croissant was still warm and fresh. Maybe it is a French thing. The coffees were fantastic. I mean, I seriously love my coffee, and I know a lot about coffee. So, I know what I’m talking about.

We were so happy when we left that place. So, if you ever visit Lille, maybe you can check this place as well.
