Oh my. I've been reading biographies about Julia Child and dreaming about French cooking. That first picture made me gasp out loud. All of it looks terrific!

Oh my god. I studied abroad in Paris in my pregan days, but I haven't been back since. I am dying to go back, and these pictures are making it even more of a need. Everything looks so good!

I recently moved back to the States from Paris and these pictures are so bittersweet to look at. Especially the falafel. Oh how I dearly love L'as falafel!

The better question is how the chef got those berries to stand still on the crepe plate.

Also: want that damn cheesecake.

I've eaten countless falafel in my life and that is quite possibly the best looking I've ever seen. What's all in there? Cabbage, cucumber, tahini sauce, chili sauce and thinly sliced onion?

That is what I am assuming. The workers didn't speak much English and made it for me pretty quickly. It was excellent! Apparently this place is so famous, it even has a wikipedia page!

I LOVE that falafel sandwich so much. It really is the best in the world!

Oh, and there is an awesome article in the latest VegNews titled "Vegan in Paris." Looks like all these places and more were mentioned!

I'm going to France this week and Paris this weekend! I've heard tons about L'as falafel, but I am wondering is it worth it to spend one of only 5-6 meals (counting breakfast) in Paris on falafel? If you tell me yes then I will definitely go!

Wow! That crepe looks delicious. :) I went to Paris back in January and the Gentle Gourmet was not yet open for business, so I was pretty sad.
