Fast Food, Parisian-Style

Hungry in Paris? Good food is never far away. I like that the stores are specialized and are clustered near each other. Hop from one to the next and gather enough for a very good meal. Here’s the selection of food stores at my metro stop, Maubert-Mutualité, on St. Germain.

The boucherie (butcher) and charcuterie (cooked meats and other delicacies):

The boulangerie (bakery):

The fromagerie (cheese shop) and wine shop:

And here are some of their goodies:

    Oh, that food looks wonderful! When Bruce and I honeymooned in Paris, we loved to walk the streets eating from the carts or storefronts (many restaurants have a window open to the street selling things). We didn’t speak French, so we either had to guess what something was, order a tried and true fave, or get out the dictionary. Your pics take us back to those days!

    I try something new every day and just wing it. “Adventures in eating.”
