17 Must Eat Foods in Paris

April 23, 2018Halal Gems Team

There are so many great things to eat in Paris that it would take you weeks to get through everything. To make a foodie trip a bit more doable, we’ve narrowed those foods down to 17 you must try. We do a fair bit of research before visiting any city but sometimes we stumble across some gems which only cost a few euros. You can view them below and as a section on our Paris map.

1. Hot Chocolate at Angelina
Known to some as the best hot chocolate in the world, Angelina is a must-visit. View our full guide to hot chocolates in Paris here.
