A PARIS MOMENT – MEALS I REMEMBER

 

There is some truth to the cliché “Americans eat to live, and the French live to eat.” But when you’re in Paris it doesn’t have to be ritzy, exclusive or expensive. It just has to taste good. This was an afternoon meal at one of the Jewish falafel places, King Falafel Palace, located on the Rue des Rosiers in the Marais district. I opted for the chicken curry pita plate. I thought it sounded interesting. For Paris it was reasonably priced and tasted fine. I’ve eaten in the L’As du Fallafel, which is just next door and somewhat better, but it is usually much more hectic and crowded. Of course, there are always those Americans who end up in a Parisian McDonalds or Subway (roll of eyes). And then there are those who end up in La Closerie des Lilas, where you can pay €160 (about $226) for a dinner and drinks for two on the terrace. The exclusive restaurant is even more expensive…
