Headed to KK & other parts of Borneo and would love the contact info for your tour guides--do you think we could get a local food tour? Locmgr1@yahoo.com

Will definitely do that as she is a lemonade drinker. What would it be called with bubbly water?

I'll look into the DK Guides, and not to worry, as an American male traveling with his wife and daughter, I will only create the illusion of being in charge of this sojourn in Paris. ;-)

Wonderful post. As for patisserie, I believe as does our President Obama, in teachable moments, and I believe this is an opportunity to introduce my daughter to the scientific method. We will try both styles and search out the truth...;-)
Is Christian Constant the same as Cafe Constant mentioned on another post as being near the Eiffel Tower?
Which of the couscous restaurants has the best food?
Thx again...

Thanks for all the help! Now I have to get to work mapping all these places out and translating some of the menu items. Thank you Paris Hounds!

Creating tasty memories for an 11 year old...

I am traveling with my wife and daughter (born and raised in Los Angeles) for her first trip abroad to Paris next week. We will be staying near George V metro for a week and will of course venture out to see the sights, however, the point of the trip is to create memories (in the Proustian sense) of Paris that speak to the quality of refinement of taste that is quintessentially Parisian. For example, my daughter has never experienced a patisserie, a bistro, or watching the world pass by while nursing a hot chocolate and/or croque monsieur. Her idea of a garden is an organic farm...So, my question for you all is this: Can you describe a couple (or more) reenactable experiences you had as a child or had with a child in Paris related to food/eating/restaurant that had a transcendent (surpassing the ordinary; exceptional) quality? If you remember it fondly, then my daughter might as well....
