Chez Le Libanais

Lebanese cuisine is a favorite in Paris.  Lebanon was a French UN mandate from the end of WWI until WWII, (Beirut was nicknamed of “Paris of the East”) and the cuisine has a significant representation in la capitale.  You’ll find many of the better restaurants in the 15th arrondissement but outposts are scattered everywhere else, anything from scruffy working-class cafés and street-vendors to elegant, classical cuisine in up-scale restaurants.

On the rue Saint-André-des-Arts there is a particularly nice shop, very well known amongst the local student population. Highlights include the lebanese pizza, (with a beautifully light and crispy base), lebanese sandwiches and good falafel, hummous and lebneh (a white yogurt-ish sauce).  They also have a big wide-screen tv showing 60s movies in Arabic, when Beirut was arguably the most cosmopolitan city in the Arab world.
