Finding delicious food in Paris isn’t exactly a challenge. After all, it’s home to more than 70 Michelin-starred restaurants. In fact, the difficult part is often narrowing down which restaurant to choose when you’re spoilt for choice. And once you get there, what do you order? To help wade through the mouth-watering options, we’re sharing five of our favourite dishes. Why not sample a few on your next city break?
Dish: Deviled eggs
Restaurant: Le Mary Celeste
The menu at this hip NOMA eatery is constantly changing – but the deviled eggs are a popular staple. Of course you can’t really go wrong with any of the inspired dishes – from the duck tacos to the oysters – but the deviled eggs will easily outshine any you’ve had before.
Dish: Waffle with artichoke and jamon
Restaurant: L’Avant Comptoir
Hidden behind a small crepe stand (push through the plastic strip curtain with a cartoon pig on it to enter), this tiny oasis is a foodie’s dream. To view the menu, simply look up: pictures of the various small plates available hang from the ceiling on large cards, delighting your taste buds from all directions. L’Avant Comptoir is famous for its duck confit hot dog, but we think the waffle with artichoke and jamon is a slightly more interesting choice.
Dish: Lamb cocotte
Restaurant: Les Cocottes
Chef Christian Constant delivers hearty French fare at this welcoming bistro in southwest Paris. Not surprisingly, the cocottes (served in cast-iron pots) are his signature dishes – and the lamb sautéed with spices, carrots and turnips is a popular and well-deserved favourite.
Dish: Spinach, egg and cheese galette
Restaurant: Breizh Cafe
Visit this cosy cafe for the most delectable crepes and pancakes you’ve ever tasted. Our suggestion: go the savoury route and order the spinach, egg and cheese galette for brunch and wash it down with one of their signature Brittany cidres.
Dish: Blueberry-thyme soup with honey-vanilla mascarpone
From creme brulee to profiteroles, there’s no shortage of decadent sweets in Paris. But soup for dessert is a unique and tantalising choice – and the blueberry soup at L’Office will easily convince you.
