PARReview

Sure, you could just pop into any corner boulangerie for a quick jambon au beurre, but just like how New York pizza isn’t created equal, the same goes for sandwiches in Paris. (Or croissants, for that matter, but that’s another story.) If you’re after a quick, grab-and-go lunch, head to Penny Lane in central Paris where options include a sabich (fried eggplant, hard-boiled egg, potatoes, tomatoes, and mango sauce stuffed between two slices of a soft, challah-like roll) or a Tangier-inspired bowl of grilled black mullet fish over rice with candied egg yolk, harissa carrots, spinach, and coriander. They do salads and soups too. Get there close to noon when they open because this place closes at a hard 2:30pm and will inevitably sell out. No reservations or weekends either.
