I don’t know about you, but when I’m visiting a place for the first time, I’m excited to know as much as I can. I end up having a good breakfast and something quick at lunch, in street-food style. I leave dinner to try a nice restaurant and enjoy it without rushing. Like this, my day is the most fruitful possible.
If you have the same style or maybe want to save money, this post is perfect. I’ve sorted out some fabulous, good-priced eating addresses, without spending too much time in a restaurant. 😉
L’As du Fallafel
If you are in the Le Marais area, I recommend tasting the most successful falafel sandwich. The sandwich is a complete meal with bread, falafel – fried bean and chickpea fritters, salad, and sauces to choose from. But pay attention to go in the right place, because in the same street there are several offering the same thing. Yet the most famous address in the Marais, even described by the NY Times as a must-see culinary destination in Paris, is L’As du Fallafel, with its green façade.
Address: 34 Rue des Rosiers 75004
Au P’tit Grec
I’ve done a post with only crepe addresses in Paris, but of course, I wouldn’t leave the list without an address for crepe on vibe street food. I’ll be right here, go on an empty stomach because it’s just huge.
Also, be patient because there will be a queue. Besides being tasty and well stuffed, the price of the crepe is very affordable. If you need a suggestion, I like the option that has tuna. 🙂
Address: 68 Rue Mouffetard, 75005
B. Bell broche
In Paris, you will find that there are kebabs, almost everywhere. If you do not know what it is, it is a sandwich of Turkish origin, usually large and accompanied by chips. Most kebabs don’t have an engaging front shop (which makes you want to eat). However, there is B.Bell where you can go, especially if you’re on a light budget. The average price of a kebab with fries is about 10 euros.
Address: 74 Rue de Turbigo, 75003
Les Petits Rolls de Paris
This is one of my favorite addresses on the Paris street food list. In the mornings, they offer a hot drink breakfast formula and small homemade brioche.
At lunchtime, they serve petits rolls, which are delicious and come with salad or chips. For dessert, a brioche stuffed to your liking.
It’s also a place for freelancers, so it has free wifi and lots of power outlets.
Address: 112 Rue Montmartre, 75002
G by Gaspard Pigalle
On a more Indian footprint, we have G by Gaspard which proposes a sandwich with naan, meat, and salad. On the menu, there are options for vegans, such as grilled zucchini and eggplant v’Gie, salads, and desserts. For sweets, my tip is Naan caramel beurre salé, Indian caramel bread with salted butter (the same one we eat with French crepe). This canteen is a great idea if you are exploring the Montmartre neighborhood as it is in the Pigalle region, which is not far away.
Address: 6 Rue de Douai, 75009
If you’re in the mood for a lobster roll, I recommend stopping by Homer, located at the BHV Homme department store. Inspired by New York sandwiches, this food truck proposes a sandwich on brioche bread with homemade mayonnaise and, of course, lobster pieces with a spice that is kept secret by the chef. To go with it, you have the option of salad or chips in the shape of chips and flavored in wasabi and truffle flavors (I recommend truffles).
The sandwich is not the cheapest, but it is lobster so exquisite. The sandwich will cost €17 or €21 if you want extra stuffing. There is also a shrimp option instead of lobster, which costs €13.
Address: 14 Rue du Temple, 75004 Paris (BHV Homme)
Le Comptoir Belge
An address for the busy bees. At this address, you will find beautiful gaufres or waffles. They are not dry or hard, nor mega sweet. I don’t have much to say, just try it. I’m sure you will like it.
Address: 58 Rue des Martyrs, 75009 // 112 Rue Mouffetard, 75005
It’s worth mentioning that you still have baguette sandwich boulangeries like Paul and Eric Kayser, which can be great for a quick and convenient bite to eat during the day.
If you have any other street food addresses in Paris to recommend, share them here in the comments. I love to try new places. =)
