If you need proof that Parisians crave more than wine and cheese, you’ll find it on a quiet corner of the 11th arrondissement. Join the crowds of young locals congregating outside and book a table at this Indian hotspot, where a filling meal probably won’t cost more than €20 per person. The menu is divided by portion size, and while you could easily stick with the chaats like dahi puri smothered in spicy yogurt and chutney, you’d be missing out on larger plates like creamy chicken korma and spicy lamb. Whatever you do, don’t skip the cardamom soft serve. The cocktail menu also includes booze-free drinks, like the Mai Lassi Tai with pineapple juice and a hint of lime.
