Angelina Paris


Having the famous hot chocolate at Angelina in Paris is one of the most common touristy things that has to be experienced.

We went to their branch at Galeries Lafayette.

Rochelle was quite excited when she saw all that whipped cream which she ate. All of it. All by herself.

Two people told me that it was too rich and too thick so we had high expectations since that’s exactly the kind of hot chocolate we were looking for. It was a good thing we just ordered one cup to try first because it was a let down.

It wasn’t thick at all. It didn’t taste bad but it wasn’t the heavenly cup of hot chocolate I was hoping for. It tasted better than most hot chocolates but it definitely wasn’t the best I’ve had. I would put it at par with the hot chocolate of Xocolat.  Was it just a fluke for this branch?

A friend told us they had the best quiche Lorraine so we shared one order.

I’ve never had a quiche which had more bacon than eggs or cheese. It was really good but the bacon did get to be overwhelming after a few bites. I can’t imagine eating one all by myself. I would have been tempted to order a baguette and stuff the quiche inside and eat it as a sandwich.

When we went to the Palace of Versaille we had lunch at Angelina again. It was located near the Petite Trianon of Marie Antoinette.

They had a very limited menu.

We had a quiche and a sandwich which we shared.

I had my doubts with the sandwich since it came from the chiller. To my amazement the baguette was still good though not as crunchy as I wanted. I loved the mayonnaise free chicken filling which was so flavorful. The raw vegetables added a nice texture to the sandwich. The price was a steal too.

The quiche wasn’t as good since it was filled with mild flavored cheese. Look at the cute bottle of citron vinaigrette for the side salad.
