From the Book: Street Food in Paris Falafel stands line Rue de Rosiers in Paris. Photo by Maarten (Superchango)/Flickr.com As appealing as it is to indulge in a three-course meal at a Paris bistro, you can also savor many French specialties on the street. Where to Eat: By day, sidewalks in the Left Bank's Latin Quarter around Saint Michel get crowded with sandwich vendors selling baguettes. In the Marais, you'll want to try the falafel stands on Rue de Rosiers. At night, the air is filled with the aroma of freshly prepared crepes, especially around Montparnasse, in the Latin Quarter, and near the nightclub areas. How Much: A Nutella or chestnut-puree crepe will cost about 4 Euro; a jambon et fromage baguette is around 6 Euro.
