Rue des Rosiers

A popular street in the Marais, Rue des Rosiers, used to be full of Jewish shops. They are slowly being replaced by clothing shops but you can still find traces of the past.

This little places sells really good Jewish food, such as bagels and really great desserts. I’ve had very delicious sandwiches here.

Some braided bread in their window.

There are five or six places selling falafal. There is an argument as to where it originated, Israel or Egypt. It has become a common Middle Eastern street food in any case. As you can see, this dog would like a bite of the falafal the people are eating.

Another sign this was once a Jewish neighborhood. It still is, of course, just changing.

  1. I just read about laboutiquejaune last night for the first time! And here it is again. I’m reading a book called A Family in Paris- the author recommended the “dense,dreamy cheesecake”. I’ll have to put it on the list for next trip to Paris, it looks intriguing, the breads look lovely.
