From Kebab to Snails: A Culinary Exploration of Paris
with Cuisine Jacobien
Paris is known for its stunning architecture, historical significance, and romantic allure. Yet, as the founder of Cuisine Jacobien, I have always been fascinated by the city’s gastronomic treasures. In this blog post, I’ll take you on a foodie tour of Paris, highlighting some must-visit spots that will offer you a bite of the city’s culinary heart.
Sürpriz Paris: A Gourmet Twist on Kebabs
Our first stop is Sürpriz Paris. This isn’t your typical kebab joint. Located in the heart of Paris, Sürpriz serves gourmet kebabs that are a feast for both the eyes and palate. The freshness of the ingredients and the care in preparation truly set their offering apart.
Chez Jeannette & Le Syndicat: A Perfect Parisian Pair
Next, we visit Chez Jeannette, a place that exudes Parisian charm. The eclectic decor and bustling atmosphere make for an enjoyable evening. Paired with a visit to Le Syndicat, a neighboring cocktail bar I’ve previously recommended, you’re in for a memorable night.
Le Perchoir Ménilmontant & Musa Bar: Stunning Views and Unforgettable Flavors
Looking for a great date night spot? Head to Le Perchoir Ménilmontant. Their rooftop view is breathtaking, their cocktails divine, and the hummus with Kalamata olives is a revelation! Just around the corner, Musa Bar is another gem. Although I don’t have pictures to share, its tantalizing menu and lively atmosphere are sure to leave you spellbound.
Chez Marcel: An Extraordinary Bistro
If you’re seeking an intimate and cozy spot, Chez Marcel is the place to be. With a heartwarming staff and divine food, every visit feels like a scene from a feel-good movie. No wonder food writer Mara Grimm endorses this bistro—it’s simply divine.
Amagat: An Italian Dream in Paris
Ready for a sensory trip to Tuscany while in Paris? Then Amagat is your destination. The food, atmosphere, and expert guidance from the sommelier make for an exceptional dining experience.
Le Royal China: Affordable, Delectable Delights
Finally, we have Le Royal China, a place that I’ve shared before and will happily do so again. Their delicious, affordable menu, particularly their game-changing dumplings, makes it an absolute must-visit.
Recoin Paris: An Ode to Seasonal Wonders
Before we end our tour, I have to give a special mention to Recoin Paris. Tucked away in a quiet, charming neighbourhood, this eatery is a gem waiting to be discovered. Recoin offers a rotating menu based on seasonal produce, making each visit a unique gastronomic adventure. Their blini with beans and cornflower petals is heavenly, perfectly complemented by their superb selection of natural wines. Recoin is not just about great food and drinks; it’s a space for delightful encounters.
These are just a few of the incredible food spots Paris has to offer. I invite you to explore these and share your experiences. For more ‘Bons plans’ and Parisian food adventures, follow Cuisine Jacobien on Instagram.
