I have already talked in other blogposts about Soya Cantine Bio. This vegetarian and vegan canteen seduced the hearts of many Parisians, vegetarian or not! All their products are fresh, the recipes are nourishing; I highly recommend their toasts!

Also, bonus point, all of their food is 100% organic. A great place for a sunny brunch out or a morning hangover cure!

2. Pierre Sang in Oberkampf

Pierre Sang is a Franco-Corean chef who became famous in French after participating in the TV show Top Chef a few years ago. He opened a gastronomic restaurant in Oberkampf and success immediately followed.

It definitely is quite more expensive that the other restaurants listed here; but I wholeheartedly recommend it if you are willing to indulge and discover the bustling scene of Paris’ emerging gastronomic chefs.

3. Chez Justine

I will be quite frank with you: Chez Justine is my favorite address of this list and of the République/ Oberkampf whole area alltogether.

The team has curated the menu with extreme care, drawing influences from italian and levantine cuisines. They work with meats and seafood that are 100% French; and they cook everything on a fire stone . The result is outstanding food burstling with flavors.

I cannot recommend this restaurant enough; also if you are an italian pizza lover, Chez Justine makes to my mind one of the best pizza of Paris.

Be careful though, the restaurant is victim of its success and if you want to eat as a group, you have to reserve two days in advance.

4. PnY

PnY is one of my favorite burger joints in Paris, and definitely one of the most famous. Check my top 3 burger joints in Paris here. They have been called several time the best burger of Paris.

Their meat patty is definitely one of the juiciest in town; the buns are homemade and excellent, and the recipes are a mixture of rustic and original to please everyone. They have opened several addresses in Paris, and they quickly became an iconic spot in the street.

If you go on weekends or at peak hours, expect some waiting time, but trust me, absolutely worth it.

5. L’Ilot

L’Ilot is an outstanding place to eat at if you are like me a seafood lover. Do not be intimidated by their impressive menu — simply ask the staff for recommendations, they are very friendly and will be happy to help.

The philosophy at l’Ilot is simple: fresh seafood prepared according to the chef’s mood of the day; accompanied by a selection of very fine wines. It is to my mind a great place to have a nive dinner out as a group.

Think of it like this: the more people there are in your group, the more items on the menu you get to taste!

8. Burger n Fries

If you are a regular reader of my blog articles on discoverwalk, you might have seen me advice Burger n Fries in other articles. The reason is simple: Burger n Fries is one of my favorite quality fast foods in Paris.

All of their ingredients are fresh (nothing frozen!), the meat patties are so juicy, and the buns are homemade (I consider them some of the best buns of Paris).

They only have 4 options on the menu: hamburger/ cheeseburger/ double cheeseburger/ veggie burger. Everything is heavenly except the vegetarian burger ; my go-to order there is the double cheeseburger.

All of this for a very fair price: 9€ for a formula burger, fries, soft drink.
