Healthy Sandwiches and Wraps @ Pret A Manger

My most enjoyable moment in London was eating sandwiches in the sandwich bar. The grab-n-go concept is so typically English and I love to join the queue while waiting for my turn to pay for the sandwich of my choice. The shelves in Pret A Manger display a huge variety of sandwiches. I was practically spoiled for choice and took more than usual time to select my preference.

Croissant and Crepe in Paris

Thinking of what to eat for breakfast in Paris can be very bothering due to the limited choice we have. While many prefer the simple continental breakfast made up of a cup of coffee and a piece of freshly baked pastry, you might want to consider a change if you have more days to spend in Paris. Walking along the downtown of Paris, you will be able to find some crepe stalls lining along the street, run by the Turkish or Middle Eastern who roll out more interesting crepes with better variety of fillings compared to the authentic French crepe.
