After a long day at school, what is one to do when they are hungry?
At home in Australia, I would whip up a delicious dinner in my huge kitchen.
At home in Paris, I haven’t quite yet mastered the courage or skill needed to cook in my ‘kitchen corner’.
However, since moving to my third apartment in the Marais, I do live on what has to be the ultimate street in this gorgeous district – Rue de Rosiers.
It is famous for so many reasons; the area is filled with amazing shops, cafés and history.
It is also famous for the best falafel in Paris.
The roaring trade these places do can only be seen to be believed. There are long lines outside all of these shops – the longest being outside the infamous L’as Du Falafel.
A little friend took me to this crazy Israeli Restaurant for my first dinner in Paris the night I arrived when I was literally physically exhausted.
I have now been back so many times since, each time trying something a little different – the plate, the sandwich and the shawarma.
But as I have found with much experience, I and most of the local French prefer the flavourful and crunchy felafel at MI-VA-MI.
So depending on my disposition, depending on the lines, and on my company, I hit the incredible food at either of these establishments.
However, only crazy people will dare to bear the brunt of the immense lines that fill the entire street every Sunday.
