Dining on a Budget, French Style

When visiting Paris and you’re staying in an apartment, you have the advantage of a small kitchen. You get the wonderful experience of shopping in the local markets, and bringing home some fresh local produce and meat or game. It’s simple to prepare a simple meal with a small meat, a couple of potatoes and fresh vegetables and a few fresh herbs. Add a loaf of bread and a bottle of French wine, and you’ll have a very romantic dinner in your own pied a’terre.

Pick up some prepared souffles from your local boulangerie, and heat them up in the morning to delight in with your fresh coffee and some local fruit, while you watch the sun rise over the tops of the buildings surrounding you. Or stop downstairs in the local cafe and order a basket of fresh bread with a cup of coffee as you lean against the counter, as the locals do.

While you’re out and about, grab a sandwich made with a crusty baguette and fresh cheese, or a delightful croque monsieur, which is sort of an inside out grilled ham and cheese sandwich. These can be bought everywhere for around $3. Add a bottle of wine, head to the park, and have a leisurely lunch while you people watch. Another romantic option is to sit along the banks of the Seine while you delight in a sandwich bought from a sidewalk vendor. Just remember, if you sit down at an outdoor cafe, you can’t bring your own food- you’ll need to order theirs. But, lunch time options are very inexpensive.

Have you thought about having a picnic while you’re in Paris? There are so many wonderful tiny markets tucked all over the city; stop in one, pick up some bread and cheese, maybe some fresh fruit, a bottle of wine, and head for one of the many parks you’ll see dotting the city. Remember to bring along a corkscrew!

Don’t forget to try a tasty crepe while you’re in Paris – the vendors prepare them in front of you, and will fill them with your choice of filling; be sure to try a fresh crepe dripping with nutella… This delightful concoction will only cost about $2 most places.

With all of the money you’ve saved, you’ll be able to splurge for that very special dinner you’ve always dreamed of, watching the sun set from high in the Eiffel Tower, as the ever so professional waiters cater to your every wish. The only concern you’ll have is making your dinner reservations far enough in advance!

Now you should have an thought of just how simple it is to eat on a budget while you’re in Paris. Bon appetite!
