Falafel Sandwich in Paris


We wanted to walk around in the Marais, where we walked many years ago and had loved, so we went to a falafel restaurant there for lunch. It’s in a Jewish area and we saw a lot of falafel restaurants but we went into “Miznon”, a place that I had read about online. I thought it was going to be just a takeaway but there were a few seats in the front room and also quite a few tables in the back. It was quiet at first as we went there early, but people were queuing by the time we left.




My husband had Lamb sandwich in pita and I had falafel sandwich in pita. The one I saw online had usual small balls of falafel for the falafel sandwich but they only seem to make large hamburger shaped ones now. I would have thought that small balls are nicer as there are more crunchy bits but maybe they changed so it’s quicker to make? Anyway we both enjoyed them – I think the best meal I’ve had in Paris during this trip. With the falafel there were some pickled red cabbage, gherkins, Fried aubergine and some sauce. There was an area where you could get sauces and other accompaniments in a corner of the restaurant so we took a few sauces and used them. The pita bread is so fluffy and delicious. I saw other people eating things like artichoke and roasted cauliflower and they looked very good. I’d love to go back for dinner but sadly my husband seemed to feel that a lunch there is enough.
