One of my go-to places for non-French food, is a Lebanese restaurant, where many of the neighborhood locals eat. The “Beyrouth Restaurant” is at 12 rue de la Buffa, is family run, and has great food and polite service. It was good that I got there at Noon for lunch the other day, as within a half hour, there was not a seat to be had!
I always order their vegetarian plate (choice of falafel or eggplant) and the variety of textures and tastes served is absolutely delicious! The menu includes “thé à la menthe” (tea) served with fresh mint – a great way to end the meal!
