L’As du Fallafel is by far the best falafel restaurant in Paris and, for many, the best falafel found anywhere outside of the Middle East. It’s located on Rue des Rosiers in the heart of the Jewish district in Paris’ Le Marais neighborhood and over the years has become true street food institution in Paris.
First, the food. The restaurant has an ample menu of Kosher dishes from the Middle East and North Africa, but the thing to order is definitely the falafel. There’s a large and almost always crowded interior dining room, but I’d suggest just rolling up to the to-go window, placing your order with one of the waiters outdoors, and grabbing a tasty falafel to enjoy in one of the local squares.
