I love those autumn mornings to walk in Paris without a clear direction. French people have a word for that which is “flaner” which would mean to stroll around the city with curiosity and interest for everything and nothing. Well, yesterday was one of those days that I devote time to walk around and look at the people, the shops and the events happening around me in Paris.
When I got hungry, I decided to walk to the 11th arrondissement and try a place that had been reported as very good by one of the owners of another spot that I love. I did well. Le Favori is an unpretentious small place with a window open to the street where they make simple sandwiches and salads. You can eat at one of the ugly plastic tables set on the street or take your food away with you.
I chose the daily special: an amazing soft bun full of a generous portion of freshly sliced pastrami, sweet pickled cucumbers, red cabbage and a fantastic strong cheddar cheese. It was mouthwatering and tasty, and at the same time filling and enjoyable. Definitely, the best pastrami in Paris can be found in this little place.
