Modest Moroccan Lunch, Paris

If, while wandering down the Rue de Bretagne in the Haut Marais, 
 you turn in at the green metal gate at no. 39, you will find the oldest covered market in Paris (1615),  Le Marché des Enfants Rouges.
In the courtyard of the market is an inexpensive Moroccan food stall
popular with locals. 
Bill had the lamb couscous with vegetable stew.
 I had the tagine chicken with olives and pickled lemons.
This orange salad sprinkled with cinnamon was cut and dressed at the time we ordered it -- a perfect, light compliment to the stews. You'll want your afternoon nap after this!


  1. Your holiday is lovely to be included in with the sights of the museums, walks, neighbourhood scenes and gorgeous artistic meals.
    Thank you!

  2. Once again, Wanda and I enjoyed our modest Moroccan lunch as we vicariously live the lives of others. oh, and the gallery tours as well, of course! Cynthia

  3. Wow I really want to visit this market on my my next trip (because there is always a next trip to Paris).
    Thanks for the tip!
    I was going to recommend a (fancier) North African option - 404 on rue des Gravilliers. We tried it for dinner in Winter 2013 … I am curious about the brunch options.
    Thanks so much for the photos!
