When your nose starts sniffing delicious BBQ smells about 200m away, you know it has to be good! The Beast is a great BBQ go-to that’s reasonably priced for the quality they’re pushing out. If you’re a North American like myself who has these cravings every so often, this is the place to go!
9 Rue Mandar, 75002 Paris
In a city that’s filled with shawarma and pita around almost every corner, how do you find one that stands out from the late-night/touristy rest? Well look no further than the Montorgueil area for this gem of souvlaki maison (homemade)! All the right flavours in all the right places!
79 avenue Bosquet 75007 Paris
You’re on your way back from the Eiffel Tower and it’s brunch time… where do you go? I offer you this gem of a place, Kozy ! It’s chill and “kozy” as the name implies. The brunch was exactly what my friend and I needed for a friendly catch-up session in Paris.
22 rue de la Folie Méricourt 75011 Paris
I took my time to try this brunch staple out, wanting to avoid the immediate popularity that ensued as soon as it opened. But I’m glad I finally tried out since now it makes sense to me why people are drawn to this very simple but quaint café. The food is good, the coffee is good. This is the Sunday-morning place you’re looking for!
32 rue Pierre Fontaine 75009 Paris
From the moment I saw this Hawaiian themed café and their Instagram account, I knew I wanted to check it out! From the bright and fresh décor (not shortage of pineapples or monsteras here!) to the homey, cosy feel, this is a great place to meet with friends and catch up!
36 Rue Poissonnière, 75002 Paris
I have been wanting to try poké for a very long time now! It looked like such a fun salad that wasn’t just boring lettuce and tomato but cool avocado, salmon, edamome and more. Pokawa treated me right on this super hot summer day, and now I wonder how did I go all summer without this meal?
106 Rue de Turenne, 75003 Paris
Fringe was the perfect spot for a calm day of bullet journaling. It’s got the simple Swedish style on the inside. The cloud-like lights that ironically bring you back down to earth. The coffee itself is top notch! They even have guest espressos that allow you to try something new!
5, rue Bourdaloue 75009 Paris
The exterior grabs your attention but it’s the healthy food that will keep you coming back (no guilt included). The restaurant itself makes you feel like you’re sitting in a tree in the middle of the jungle (in the best way possible!). Delicious buddha bowls that really inspire you to want to eat healthy, have fresh ingredients all the time and cook them in simple but great ways just like they do!
20bis rue de Douai 75009 Paris
I finally made my way to the famous new addition to the Big Mamma group of Italian restaurants: Pink Mamma! Some of you may have already had your newsfeeds filled with pictures of the beautiful glass ceiling on the top floor or of the amazing Italian food that rarely disappoints! For those of you who don’t know about this place, keep reading and preferably without an empty stomach (automatic torture will ensue!)
