if you don't mind a little walk, the best felafel ever was had.....better than the mother land--israel! fresh and huge but somehow not overly filling. a surprise find on trip advisor that we are happy to have discovered. not a lot else to see in the evenings when there ,so can't report on other things to see .

Our friends had rented an apartment on rue Pavee in the Marais Area or Jewish Quarter so we visited several times during our three month stay in Paris. The Kosher food (Falafel Pita) was excellent and several good bakeries. Even though this is the Jewish Quarter there is also good diversity of many cultures.

Its façade is beautiful and unique. Boulangerie... More

There are several Jewish bakeries here (yummy), as well as my favorite restaurant in Paris, l'As du Fallafel. The falafel pita sandwich is amazing - get it to go (cheaper) and find a... More

We were walking in the Jewish quarter and saw some commotion ahead of us on the street. (it was a quiet one way street and we were walking against traffic) As we got closer, I noticed the men were wearing kippot, and then I saw a limo coming towards us with flashing lights and honking its horn.
