Paris counts more than 20 000 restaurants but even if you are using a guide or internet to find them, it’s always better to follow a local’s advice.

As most Parisians my age would say their favorites restaurants are the asian cantines (see article in our blog), it took me some time to collect these French spots in one article.

I selected these restaurants because they serve fresh cooked food and are not touristy at all so don’t expect to be given an english menu but expect to meet the most charismatic waitress who will try to translate for you.

If you are looking for some specific food or try them all in one day, ask for a food tour!
