A friend and colleague just graduated to manhood so we decided to give him a little surprise at La Vie Parisienne. La Vie Parisienne is a french bakery, deli, and wine library that can be easily spotted in Lahug, Cebu City. It is conveniently located just beside La Maison Rose, the Pink House, on your right if you take the UP Cebu route.
Throwback to an old pic with a dear friend of mine and her then bayu (partner) at our La Vie Parisienne catch-up circa 2013. It was just a simple garden backyard with tables and chairs and few sparkly lanterns at the back. (sorry for the vintage-ish photo 🙂 )
But lo and behold, the new La Vie Parisienne is bright and sparkly with pink-ish purplish lanterns mimicking the famous cherry blossoms . Gazebos have been added to shield from heaven’s drops during cold and rainy season. (my night photos are just worse, sorry, my camera phone is not that great)
Some chairs are illuminating with rainbow colors and a huge hammock is added in the scene. The new look may be intimidating but rest assured Sugbuanons, La Vie offers a wide range of wines and pastries that are just affordable.
And nobody leaves La Vie Parisienne without trying their macarons. With the right wine selection, this light airy dessert can be a perfect match. And hey, friendly reminder, there’s a difference between macaroons and macarons. 😀
And their sophisticated Instagram-worthy cellar with colleague and friend Raf photo bombing a couple 😉
Our surprised birthday baby boy and fashion blogger, Roycie, ecstatic to blow his candles.
And so we began our long night of pigging out, chuckling, selfie-ing, and letting loose.
Mexican spicy pizza for 310php
For our vegetarian Raf, vegetarian pizza for 220php.
Lasagna, my fave for the night, 350php
French macarons for 48php each, R-L on the photo – vanilla, pistachio, caramel, and chocolate.
We added a chocolate muffin to hold the birthday candles for 145php. And to call it a day, we had the Sauvignon L’Elegant for just 340php. Affordable, right? 😉
And to Roycie, once again, HAPPY BIRTHDAY! 😀
