4 rue Sauval, Paris
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

Sometimes, you just want a steamed bao bun. And because you’re in Paris, you can get one that’s filled with Frenchy flavors (think Stilton cheese and cherries, or comté and carmelized onions). Choose from six savory options of perfect, fist-sized, doughy dumplings (one is a snack, three are a meal) served from a window around the corner from the Louvre. Head here after the museum when you realize you’re exhausted, starving, and forgot to make a reservation elsewhere, or if it’s approaching the dreadful post-lunch hour of 3pm.

If it’s nice out, take them to the park just down the street at Les Halles and eat them while people-watching in the newly revamped mall hub that was once known as the belly of Paris when it housed the city’s largest food market.
