MOTOism: Food in France

by Moto Yamamoto

I went to France for the first time. As I packed for the trip, all I could think about was the scene from The Devil Wears Prada where Anne throws her cellphone into a fountain. Everyone looks so stylish in that scene, or in any other film set in Paris – going around the Eiffel Tower […]

Super Faminto: 5 Days in Paris: Birthday Dinner at L’Epi Dupin

by Bryan Sanders

L’Epi Dupin near Le Bon Marche is normally a quiet place full of neighborhood types and locals. Their course meal is a bargain. Old types sit and drink. The snobbery was at a low. When our mixed mash group of birthday celebrators reserved a month before, they probably didn’t expect the entire ambiance of the […]

Super Faminto: 5 Days in Paris: Cojean’s Toasted Sandwich

by Bryan Sanders

After a painfully long day of marching shop to shop near Opera, we needed to eat something. Anything. Shopping with CH and Angela was exhausting normally, but this was sale week in the fashion capital of the world, and it was intense. The hustle of sale week mixed with the extremely friendly Parisians bumping elbows […]

Super Faminto: 5 Days in Paris: Lunching at Merci Shop

by Bryan Sanders

Recently a surge of concept stores and boutiques have marked our larger cities, the world over, from Paris to São Paulo, all bringing a bit of something new and curated. Concept shops like Paris’ overtly “cool” Colette throbs with waves of tourists, often fall short as many want to escape the untz-untz pouring from the […]

Super Faminto: 5 Days in Paris: Kebab + Falafel

by Bryan Sanders

Paris is packed with things like bad service, people who don’t wear color, restaurants with funky bathrooms, people who embody blasé, park benches older than both of my countries, and street food that will screw your brains out, call you lover, and often never call you back. For these reasons, I decided to go there […]

Jerkey’s Korner: Frenchified (A Memoir)

by Sarah Fatemi

My trip to France was my first international experience ever. As much as I tried to prepare, there really is just no preparing for the unknown. From walking a mile underground in between each subway line to the reality of the hotel rooms, everything seemed to be more difficult than I had anticipated. What do […]

Slightly Peckish: Paris in the Footsteps of Hemingway, Serge + Jane

by Sakura Gooneratne

My family and I went on a flying visit to Paris again to rendez-vous with my dad (since he managed not to get his UK visa in time–visa people suck). Last year I gave him a copy of Ernest Hemingway’s memoir of 1920s Paris, A Moveable Feast, which he raved on about until I decided […]

Slightly Peckish: Confit, Anyone? (Paris)

by Sakura Gooneratne

The French are famous for their cuisine and although it seems a daunting task to find the diamonds amongst the gazillion eateries in Paris, we had our trusty mother– with her Japanese travel guides– who took us seemlessly from one good restaurant and bistro to another. She likes to do her research before travelling and […]
