Les Deux Magots

Les Deux Magots is definitely NOT the Two Maggots as JS refers it...
"Let's go to the 2 Maggots to have breakfast!!!!" and skipped happily

established in 1884 it certainly housed a lot of history with it
this place is more than just a breakfast place
Important ppl - Oscar Wilde and Ernest Hemmingway have their tea here

Writers, Artists and philosophers meet here from the 1920s till 1950s
now it is a place to be seen with its clientele of Publishers and People-Watchers

the name Les Deux Magots came from this two wooden statue of chinese merchant
so it's pretty weird to have such antiquity in the heart of Paris

"Look there's a Yap Ah Loy here!!!!"

Buttery flaky croissant
that's crispy and crumbly on the outside as u sink ur teeth on it
soft and airy on the inside
lookin at it makes me want ONE right now....

simple black coffee = cafe noir
Black coffee with milk = cafe au Lait
anyway they have 19 different types of go and spoil yourself!!!!

we the Malaysians taught the French how to enjoy their croissants....
dunk em into the black coffee....kekekeke...ala Malasie style :P

Oeufs sur la plat, bacon
fried eggs wif bacon

the famous Croque Monsieur
basically a slice of ham is sandwiched in between cheeses on top of bread
dashes of Worcestershire sauce were added and then grilled to perfection
simple and yummy yummy....
original tiles since 1884
our waiter walked past with his spanking white long apron
Waiting staffs in cafes, brasseries, restaurants are very well dressed in Paris....
much better than your banker I must say!!

it's a treat to come here every single time!!!
will never ever get bored of it :D
I just wished there's such cafe back home with great food and impeccable service.....
