Review: La Reine de Saba

Reine Saba Paris 1

A few months ago, I took my housemates out for lunch to La Reine de Saba. I had been there once before with my friend Ari. On a sunny day last summer, we went exploring Belleville (some pictures here) and once it was time for lunch, Ari said, "How about ethiopian?" I had tried many cuisines but never ethiopian... And now I'm hooked! (unfortunately "hooked" in my world means I think about certain foods a lot, plan on going again sometime in the near future, but on a daily basis decide not to, either to try being healthy or to try saving money)

Peter and Ruth and I enjoyed our lunch there too. I am obsessed with the Azifa starter. It's delicious. We weren't even able to finish our enormous plate, and that's saying something seeing as Peter is over six feet tall and eats four times as much as I do. If you're walking around Belleville or want a romantic date night, consider going to La Reine de Saba! It's lovely.

Two lunch spots in the Marais

If it's 3pm and you're starving and you feel like eating crêpes for lunch, head to Breizh café. For normal hours, I recommend reserving a table! I like to go for a classic, like fromage, or saumon-crème fraîche but everything is delicious. Definitely leave room for dessert, as the apple, caramel & ice-cream crêpe is one of the most amazing things to exist.

Le Pain Quotidien

I've yet to be disappointed by Le Pain Quotidien. I know, a chain of restaurants. What can I say? I love their menu, their ingredients, their healthy choices, and their not-so-healthy but incredible Brunette praline nut butter. This is one of the only times I allow myself to eat loads of bread! woohooo! There are quite a few around Paris, and seeing as they are open all day, it's a good place to eat if you're starving and every other place is closed.
