5 Parisian Street Foods You Need to Try

Try some of the best Parisian foods without paying an arm and a leg.

by Joshua Schaffner

When traveling to France whether on pilgrimage or on vacation, there is always opportunity to explore French cuisine, which is one of the richest and most famous in the world. However, Michelin-rated and 5 star restaurants may not fit everyone’s price range. So here are some of our favorite street foods for eating great French cuisine on a budget.

Jambon Buerre @ Chez Aline
This signature French sandwich at Chez Aline is sure to be good with a butcher at the helm of the restaurant.  Here you’ll have some of the best ham in the city and fresh baguettes delivered from Maison Landemaine around the corner. The Jambon Buerre is the most-served meal in France, estimated at nearly 4 million every day!

Bululu Arepera
A Venezuelan fast-food restaurant (but not fast-food the way we think in America) that serves up wonderful Arepas, stuffed sandwich pockets almost like a pita. Just a ten minute walk north of Sacred Heart.

Grilled cheese @ Mabel
They know the classic and they stick to it – fresh made bread and grilled cheese. Simple, affordable, and delicious.  Seriously, it will be the best GC you’ve ever had.

Rue de Rosiers, Falafel & Pita
Walking down the Rue de Rosiers you come to the Jewish district of the city and it may sound and smell like you’ve stepped into the Middle East. Over the centuries, immigrants to Paris occasionally crave a taste of home, and there’s no more universally loved Middle Eastern food than falafel.  For those early immigrants, was affordable and tasted like home – very appealing to those far from their country. However, native Parisians too adopted this as a favorite food and many consider it to be THE original and most popular street food in Paris.

Hot chocolate @ Jaques Genin
For dessert, or an afternoon treat on a cold day, try the hot chocolate and Jaques Genin. The renowned French confectioner opened a sweets shop on the first floor with his laboratory on the second floor, like an eloquent Willy Wonka of sorts.
