Le Traiteur Marocain 39 Rue de Bretagne, 75003 Paris, France
When I went looking for some couscous, I didn’t realize I would be entering a market. Marche des Enfants Rouge was a great added bonus.
We entered through the inconspicuous narrow gate and found many vendors selling prepared meals, flowers, produce, and knickknacks in the little square.
The longest line, though it moved quickly, was for the Moroccan cuisine. We hopped on, gave our order, and waited. There was plenty of comfortable seating. Soon our heaping portions of couscous were brought over, a very affordable lunch.
What great color, flavor, and so many tender veggies atop a mountain of couscous.
L’As du Fallafel 34 Rue des Rosiers, 75004 Paris, France
One of the best fallafels I’ve ever had, including NYC and Israel. Located in the Jewish Quarter you can do take out or sit inside. The restaurant was pretty big and service was very friendly. You’ll get a whopping packed pita with lots of balls, veggies, and deliciously drowned in tahini for a reasonable price.
