Paris is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world...and for good reason. But with so many sights to see, you’re going to need some sustenance along the way.
Here are my top five suggestions for tasty Parisian street food specialties to tide you over until your next meal.
Les Crêpes: Whether you opt for salée (savory) or sucrée (sweet), you can’t go wrong with a traditional crêpe. Grab a meat and cheese crêpe for lunch or a Nutella crêpe for an afternoon snack and you’ll feel oh so Frech. Crêpe stands are located throughout the city.
Les Gaufres (Waffles): Known to most Americans as “Belgian waffles,” these tasty treats are made on the spot and sprinkled with powdered sugar. Delicious, filling, what more could you ask for? Gaufre carts are located throughout the city.
Marrons Chauds (Roasted Chestnuts): Roasted chestnuts can be found throughout the City of Lights, especially around the holidays (you’re sure to find marrons chauds vendors near the Eiffel Tower or along the Champs-Elysées). Served in a small paper sack, roasted chestnuts are made for munching as you stroll the Parisian streets. (Note: According to those I’ve polled, marrons chauds seem to be an acquired taste, so it might be a good idea to share your first bag with a fellow traveler. For the record, I love them.).
La Glace (Ice Cream): Ice cream just tastes better when you’re licking it off a waffle cone, staring at the Arc de Triomphe, or strolling through the Jardin des Tuileries to the sound of street musicians. Check out Chez Alberto on the Rue de Mouffetard for an unforgettable treat.
Falafel: If you’re in the mood for some excellent falafel, head to one of the shops on the Rue de Roisiers in the Marais district. While you’re there, take a stroll around this historic area, the oldest neighborhood in Paris.
