Chez Aline

Restaurant Chez Aline in Paris

Best sandwich shop Guide 2013 

We clued you in last year: Delphine Zampetti makes the best snacks and lunch boxes in Paris! Her sandwiches are prepared when ordered: veal milanaise with gribiche sauce, Prince de Paris ham, pesto and goat cheese, homemade terrines and mini pickled cucumbers, Banka trout with pickled cabbage and raw cream with dill… For the salads: delicious blond lentils, celery branch and Xérès vinegar, or the very red beet and raspberry salad. For the cold plates: bonito escabeche, caponata, salad. And for desserts: brownie or fromage blanc with rhubarb and a killer apple, rhubarb and strawberry crumble… To chow down on while seated one of the four barstools at the counter of her little boutique, preserved from its days as a horse butchery (yellow tiles from the floor to the ceiling, Formica, glass case and walk-in refrigerator). And she hasn’t forgotten about the sweetest fruit: red and white Cheverny de Puzelat at €4 a glass. For the kids: Patrick Font fruit juices (€2.70 to €4.50). Sandwiches €4.50-9, salads €19-48 a kilo, plat du jour €8.50-12, desserts €5. // T.S.
