Culinary Adventure in Paris

I could hardly wait to arrive to Paris. This was our second time to Paris, so we had more expectations as we knew the city better and knew exactly where we wanted to go and what we want to experience. Paris is an incredible city, full of culture and amazing architecture. No matter where you look the buildings are just impressive. This time we wanted, as much as possible, to stay away from the major touristic places as we have already seen most of them, and seek places less crowded by tourists, trying to experience the Parisian way of living. This is how we get to find our accommodation close to Rue Mouffetard, one of Paris oldest street, narrow but very full of life, in the heart of Paris, with lots of restaurants, cafes, open markets and various shops, a perfect place to be in the morning for a delightful breakfast.
