- French toast made with brioche and eggs with milk, vanilla and little bit of molasses.
- Walks in the Marais (Mar-eyh)
The Marais is one of the only places with open shops on a Sunday
A nice walkable Jewish/Gay/start-up-clothing-designer neighborhood. Somehow this works.
- And then there are the pitas.
At least 5 different pita shops that also sell to-go through a walk-by window. Strange for the country where sit-down dinners are a national sport.
But these pitas, they are divine. Every bite is different. They seem to hit every flavor and texture on the palette.
Start with a toasty pita bread, spoonful of garlicky hummus, 3 piping hot crunchy-on-the-outside falafels, sweet shredded carrots, fresh shredded cucumber and purple cabbage, then red tomato sauce, grilled eggplant, a white yogurt-tahini sauce and a dill pickle. (the only place in all of Western Europe I have found real dill pickles).
