It is true that most of us love to have a sit-down meal at one of the famous Parisian restaurants while we are on a Paris city tour. However, if you are a true foodie, who wishes to explore delicious Parisian foods, then your ultimate destination will be the local street food stalls in the French capital.
The quick café shops and crepe stands that you see on each corner of Paris serve delicious on-the-go bites that are an absolute treat for the ones who love the food culture of Paris. However, tourists who are their first Paris city tour might find it a little bit hard to identify the best places that sell delicious street food. If you are stuck such a scenario, then we are here to help.
Rue des Rosiers
The Rue des Rosiers, which can be translated as the “street of the rosebushes” is located in the heart of Paris’ Jewish Quarter. If you take a stroll through this street, you can find that the street is lined with elegantly designed restaurants that sell shawarma and falafel sandwiches. The sandwiches that are exploding with sauce and filling will be one of the best street foods that you will ever it. Some vendors may add more spice to the sauce piquante, so go easy on it.
If you are a person who loves to try “artisan” style street foods, it is best to head straight to Paris’ Marché Saint-Honoré. The ultimate burger that is served at the Cantine California is something you do not want to miss if you wish to explore the street food culture of the city. Tourists who are looking for better meaty burger options should try to check out the Big Fernand and Café des Abattoirs before ending their Paris city tour.
Rue du Faubourg, Saint-Denis
Rue du Faubourg is one of the culturally diverse streets in the French capital. However, the best thing about this Parisian street is that you can find authentic street food at affordable prices. You can find a number of street vendors in the street ranging from Indian to Lebanese. The delicious foods from the Middle East and Asia will urge you to visit Paris’ Rue du Faubourg multiple numbers of times during your Paris tour.
