Bianco Pizzeria – Bar à Cocktails in Paris, France:
For our early dinner in Paris on our first night there, we ate at Bianco Pizzeria (a restaurant, pizzeria, cocktails bar). We decided on Bianco Pizzeria after seeing their expansive patio where many patrons were dining on delicious-looking food.
We opted to sit outside to experience what it was like (we saw so many Parisians and tourists lounging outside on the patio over food and drinks and people-watching too that we wanted to do the same).
Our server gave us the English menu where we ordered some drinks (it was Happy Hour from 4 to 7 p.m. and each drink ordered meant another one free), pasta, pizza, and dessert to share. I loved this!
There was a breeze that grew stronger as we sat there but I luckily got some nice photos in before the sudden rain made us move into the inside of the restaurant to eat. (In this sense, we got to experience both the outdoor and indoor feel of the restaurant. :P)
We were given a basket of baguettes and an olive oil infused with hot peppers to start our meal. The baguettes were hard in texture and after pouring some of the olive oil on my piece, I experienced spicy olive oil for the first time. It was good! 🙂
The Paradise Dream cocktail was fruity and sweet. It was a “sweet cascade with strawberries, white peaches, cream, and pineapple juice”.
The Ocean Kiss arrived in a sexy blue mermaid mug. 🙂 It was an “exotic swirl of oranges, cedar, cactus, lemon, ginger, and pineapple juice”.
Kerry ordered a lemon tea to soothe her stomach.
The Salmon Pizza was absolutely delicious! In addition to thin slices of smoked salmon on it, it also had mozzarella and crème fraîche (fresh cream) on it. It sat on top of a stand that the server brought for us which not only made it look fancy on the table but it maximized table space as you could put something underneath it.
I loved the salty smoked salmon layered on top of the pizza. ❤
The Spaghetti Napo was a simple pasta dish made with tomatoes and olive oil. The spaghetti was al dente and the sauce was creamy with cheese. It was nice and simple :).
I ordered the “famous” Chocolate Banana Cake. Its presentation was so pretty! Within the crispy chocolate exterior, there were chunks of bananas inside! So yummy!! ^_^
I really enjoyed our dinner at Bianco Pizzeria (they provide free wifi). I’m so glad that we got to experience a bit of the Parisian lifestyle. 🙂
