And here’s the wine shop where Oak and Beans of Ozamiz got its concept from, La Vie Parisienne or “The Paris Life”. This is just adjacent to The Pink House where it functions as a French bakery, deli, and wine library. Oh, the smell of freshly-baked French pastries wafts in the air the moment you step into its front door that directs your nose right into the goodies! Croissants, mille-fueille, leek quiche, merveilleux chocolat, macarons, etcetera, etcetera, oh la la! I may not be a sweets-loving person but I couldn’t help getting a helping of these sinful treats. They are just a sight to behold, a mouth-watering feast you want to devour right away!
On the other hand, the delicatessen has an assortment of French delicacies straight from the country of romance, perfume, and wine. They have specialty oil, vinegar, mustard, salad dressings, pasta sauces, cheeses, and others – all imported products that are not as costly as the ones found in local grocery stores. Now you can cook your favorite Italian pasta, Greek salad, and Spanish gazpacho conveniently with ingredients already made accessible to you by M. Lhuillier Wine and Food.
Speaking of wine, La Vie Parisienne’s wine library has so much to offer! From top brands to Lhuillier’s collection of signature wines, varieties of white and red, coming from different countries of origin – they just have ’em all. The wine cellar is too full from floor to ceiling that you can consider researching and be inspired to study winery and get a degree on oenology. Just take a look at the photo below. If you want something in particular, you can have it right away!
Good food matched with the perfect wine is the best way to spend quality time with your loved ones at La Maison Rose, World Pizza, and La Vie Parisienne. Now you might think that coming here will leave a hole in your pocket. Well, it won’t. For this lovely dinner didn’t cost us an arm and a leg. Of course, there are those selected wines and dishes that are pricey – you know, fit for the elite and socialite. But most in the menu are reasonably priced for every Juan.
The pizza we ordered is so Italian that ordinary us didn’t have a liking for it. There’s also pizza sisig and pizzaadobo by the way that we Filipinos can definitely enjoy eating. Will be ordering that next time. But it’s great to taste something foreign and extraordinary, right? Hehe….. Meanwhile, all of us agreed that the chicken dish which I forgot its name is perfect to our taste buds as well as the carbonara. It is very tasty, creamy and cheesy. The pasta in olive oil is just like pancit said papa but I liked it. Plus the wine! The red wine just pulled everything off!
So cheers to papa and mama’s good health! Thank God for all the blessings, thank God all is well! 🙂
If you wanna experience something high-end and sosyal without feeling intimidated, visit La Vie Parisienne. It’s the perfect place to dine and wine with your family, friends, and special someone. I guarantee you, it is an overly romantic venue for a date especially at the rooftop under the moonlit sky with twinkling stars. Have that Parisian dream come to life that suits your budget! Live that Parisian dream! The wine just got into me in the following photo. Hehe…..
