Jumping ship for Paris

Hello dear forum users! Have you all had good weeks?

Mine has been very long and tiring so, on something of a whim, I'm heading to Paris tonight and leaving London in a cloud of dust behind me for a few days. I've never been before, and I'm really excited, but I'd imagine some of you may very well have been in the past, so I ask - are there any incredible foodie places I should go whilst I'm there?

Take care,
M

Re: Jumping ship for Paris

Have a lovely time Merlin , we love going to Paris and there are many lovely street markets ,  the one we went to last was in Porte Doree which is on a Sunday morning ( and I think on another day in the week but I;m not sure)

going n the eurostar is such an easy way to travel and when you get to Paris , get yourself some metro tickets from the machine , you use 1 ticket per trip and I find the  metro is easier than the London Underground .

Have a great time .

Back to the grind! Did everybody have good Bank Holiday weekends?

If anybody's interested, I (surprisingly) had the best falafel of my life in Le Marais, as well as some unforgettable escargot in Belleville.

Re: Jumping ship for Paris

I'm not surprised about the falafel being good Merlin , can you remember where in Le Marais you were . I shall try to remember for when I am next in Paris . Sounds like it would be a good place for lunch.


I hope the weather was good for you .

We had a nice weekend , seemed to be busy without doing too much !

Re: Jumping ship for Paris

In my excitement I didn't even look at the name of the place! It was almost impossible not to see, however - down one of the narrower streets, selling them to passers-by in flatbreads from a big window in the restaurant. I will ask my Parisian friend for the name too.

Re: Jumping ship for Paris

mummza, there are several excellent felafel places along on the Rue de Rosiers.  That was one of my favorite cheap lunches in Paris.  If you are near the Rue de Bretonne - Marche de L'Enfants Rouges has some inexpensive outdoor (under tent cover) places - some not good, but if the Moroccan and Japanese places are still there - both are good for cheap lunches.

eta:  Glad you had fun Merlin!

Re: Jumping ship for Paris

Hey thanks everyone!

It turns out the falafel place in Marais is pretty famous - kinda like Beigel Bake on Brick Lane, I think - http://www.finedininglovers.com/blog/cu … fel-paris/

HIGHLY recommended!
