Guide For The Foodie: Paris Edition

From romantic picnics on the Eiffel Tower lawn, to walks along the padlock covered ‘Pont de l'Archevêché,’ Paris is well-known as the ‘City of Love.’ Paris has some of the best food in the world, so when living in, or traveling through this city, you do not want to miss out on the best (and most affordable) restaurants in Paris.

 

Where to go for Matzo Ball Soup?… Le Marais. It is one of the cutest cobble stone neighborhoods in Paris. Here you can find an endless amount of kosher restaurants, but the real delicious diamond in the rough of Israeli-style restaurants is a to-go shack called L’As Du Fallafel. Get a pita filled with the works of special sauces and shawarma, viande, boissons, or, of course, fallafel.

Open: Sun-Thu 12P-12A, Fri 12P-3P

What Would Paris Be Without The Crepe?..Nothing. On ‘Rue du Montparnasse,’ you can’t turn your head without seeing a creperie, but the one that is sure to have the longest line is Creperie Josselin. Once you secure a table after waiting at least 30 minutes (no reservations accepted), you will be stuffed behind a large table that you’ll share with people you’ve never met before…but it’s worth it. The Kitchen is open-air, so you can watch the delicacies flip around at the chefs’ fingertips. Start with a savory crepe filled with egg, meats, and cheese, and then end your meal with a Nutella and banana dessert crepe.

Open: Wed-Sun 12P-11P

 

Macaroon or Macaron?..The Latter. Sure you can find these pretty, trendy treats all around the states, but what is better than enjoying the freshest flavors with a side of vanilla bean ice cream at the original Laduree? The tea room at the 16 ‘Rue Royal’ location is beautifully decorated and is a perfect spot to enjoy pastel colored pastries.

Open: Sun 10A-7p, Mon-Thu 8A-7:30P, Fri-Sat 8A-8P

 

Angelina; Paris, France

Willy Wonka May Not Have Been Parisian…But this might be the best chocolate you have ever consumed. Head over to the 100+ year old restaurant, Angelina for a delicious chocolate éclair or croissant, hazelnut soft serve, and some hot chocolate…and then buy some chocolate sauce for mom at the restaurant’s boutique. PS: they have ‘real food’ too, but we go for the chocolate.

Open: Mon-Thu 7:30A-7P, Fri 7:30A-7:30P, Sat-Sun 8:30A-7:30P
