On Monday I travelled to Paris to meet a friend, do a bit of shopping and have a dinner date.
I met for lunch with my friend T at Ebis, an Asian restaurant near of Rue Saint-Honoré. I had the lunch menu: tofu soup, salad, and spicy prawns with rice. The Taiwanese Ambassador to France was also having lunch there and I felt honoured when T introduced me to him.

My dinner date was at Kong, where last year I had lunch with Tiffany of Leftbanked. My date was very unhappy with the service and didn't hesitate to let the staff know.
The food was good though. I had the tuna steak. Although I had asked for it to be rare, it was served well done.
For dessert we shared the nems au chocolat.
We had one more drink at the bar, where my date had another go at the staff because they wouldn't let him change his order. But in the end he got what he wanted.

I bought these Ferragamo shoes at Galeries Lafayette. They will be perfect for summer.
