Field Fridays – Parc Des Princes
Every Friday I will be posting a new city and stadium that will be participating in next months World Cup. Not just focusing on the city I will give you a little history/ story of the unknown cities and tell you food that you must try.
2019 Women’s World Cup will be held in 9 cities across the beautiful country of France. I can’t think of a better place to kick of FIELD FRIDAYS than in the City of Lights, Paris. And the home stadium of PSG, Parc Des Prince.
What can I possibly say about Paris that hasn’t been said? Paris has ranked in the top 3 most visited cities in the world for decades and with so much to do and eat, it is not a surprise. Rather than repeat the obvious, Eiffel Tower, crepes etc. I am going to recommend some things you might not have heard of. I love getting lost in little allies which is exactly where you can find Yam’Tcha. The actual restaurant has a Michelin Star, but you don’t have to go broke to eat well. Walk over to the tea room where you can order your Bao Bun’s straight from a window and eat on a nearby bench. From there, head over to Angelina for dessert, they’re famous for hot chocolate (which is amazing.) However, if the June weather doesn’t really put you in the mood for a hot beverage, they have plenty of other options and an adorable Tea Room which is perfect for goûter (French snack time). Now that you are nice and full it’s time to head over to the Parc Des Princes for the match.

By far Paris is the most well known city, but come back next Friday when when we will go just a few hours east to Rennes, France. There you will get to know about Galette Saucisse and Roazhon Park.
