On a shoestring : Top 10 Paris Bistrots

I must be on a roll, noticing articles everywhere about dining in Paris. And this is solely based on sites that I do read from time to time. I wouldn’t want to imagine what an aggregrator will come back with had I ever bother try to set one up.

Le Pre Verre

Either that, or all the major media KNOWS Paris is a wonderful holiday destination and are therefore pouring all the advices in. And this just came in, from Guardian, Top 10 Paris Bistrots on a Budget. Bistros? Bistrots? What’s the difference between the two words?

Anyway, I digress.

Looking at the list, there’s only a couple of them that I know of and have been to – Le Pre Verre (photographed above), Chez Gladines – and those places are among my favourites. This means I must go and try the others on the list, and sooner rather than later too. Afterall, if hordes of English tourists start descending on these bistrots, the value menu may soon becomes a thing in the past.

Of course, such crowd can also be “discouraged” (except for the determined) by the employment of French-only menus, impatient waiting staff, and safely tucked away from the main touristy areas. Some of the bistrots listed here are already on to these tactics – cool!

Alright, I was just teasing here. Good things are meant to be shared, and had I really want to be such a scrooge over it, I would have written this entry without giving you the link to the article nor mentioning the source. ;-)
