If you are sick of eating French food – I will personally never understand how it is possible to get sick of French food – then this article was made for you. Paris being the world city it is, there is delicious food at every corner that is obviously not always French food. After a long and rigorous selection, we picked our 10 favorite places to grab a bite in Paris.
Japanese ramen and donburi
Delicious, hearty and even better: very affordable. As a Japanese cuisine enthusiast, Higuma is ranking high on my favorite restaurants list in Paris . I’ve been there so many times, and it never disappoints. I recommend the tendon, with shrimps and vegetable tempura on rice, and the miso ramen, both amazing
32 rue Sainte-Anne, 75001 Paris, France
La Crème de Paris
Sure, you’ve had waffles in your life, but have you ever had savory waffles? I think not. You can choose between six different toppings, and all of them are great so you really can’t go wrong. My personal favorite is the goat cheese, leek, honey and walnuts topping
2 rue du Faubourg Montmartre, 75009 Paris, France
Burgers are obviously not French, but since French people are obsessed with food and cuisine, it was only a matter of time to get them Frenchified and the Big Fernand burgers are a fine example: French cheese, homemade French lemonade, and Parisian beer! Even the burgers have French names. Personal favorite: the Philibert burger
55 rue du Faubourg Poissonnière, 75009 Paris, France
Restaurant and tearoom at the Grande Mosquée de Paris
Moroccan cuisine / Tea and pastries
A restaurant at lunch and dinner time and a tearoom in the afternoon, the restaurant of the Parisian mosque is not to be missed if you enjoy Moroccan cuisine. Have couscous, tajine or brick pastries during the restaurant hours, or mint tea and amazing pastries full of sugar, honey and almonds for teatime! Choose your pastries first at the counter and sit either in the cute little garden or inside the restaurant, tastefully decorated
39 rue Saint-Hilaire, 75005 Paris, France
L'As du Fallafel
There is always a very long queue outside of this restaurant, and for food reason: they serving the best falafels of Paris. THE BEST FALAFELS OF PARIS, that's all you need to know. Do you need any more reasons to run there?

La Maison du Dim Sum
Chinese dim sum
Sharing is caring at La Maison du Dim Sum. Dim Sum is one of my all-time favorite meals: I love having many dishes to choose from, I love seeing the plates full of delicious dumplings, buns and other delicacies, and above all I love sharing food with all my friends. La Maison du Dim Sum is simply a great dim sum place in Paris, with a wide choice of steamed dumplings and buns available
4 rue des Fosses Saint Jacques, 75005 Paris, France
Pizza and Italian cuisine
These are the real deal, the real Italian pizzas with thin crust and fresh tomato sauce, and they are made in front of you by an Italian chef! It doesn’t get much more authentic than that. Pick any pizza on the menu, we promise you won’t be disappointed!
14 rue du Ruisseau, 75018 Paris, France
In this restaurant, the mood is set as soon as you go in, as if you were magically teleported in Lebanon with the incredible decoration. It gets even better with the many delicious dishes that will take every available space on your table. The only problem, really, is to choose a dish to start with as you would want to eat them all at once…
29 rue Galande, 75005 Paris, France
Chez Mademoiselle Paris-Astana
The presentation of the dishes on the plates is always Instagram perfect as well as high quality and the atmosphere of the restaurant makes you feel like you are in Russia. Fine Russian cuisine in a small and welcoming Russian restaurant, what more could I ask for?
21 rue Mademoiselle, 75015 Paris, France
La Petite Sirène de Copenhague
Danish and Scandinavian cuisine
While there are many restaurants in the capital, it is extremely hard to find Scandinavian cuisine. And La Petite Sirène de Copenhague does not serve just any Scandinavian cuisine. This Danish restaurant is an UFO in the Paris restaurant landscape, and it is such a good find for seafood lovers. The products are always very fresh and the menu is changing almost every day for a unique experience!
