A bar and that’s all folks! A mere 300 meters and a handful of crumbs away from Dumbo, this tiny Bauhaus-style spot (black and blue tiles, a sleek alcove, geometric lettering) has entered the Parisian street food game. Come discover the holiest of holy sabich (pronounced “sabirrrh”), an Iraqi Jewish snack that’s a popular choice in Tel Aviv, once grilled at the entrance of synagogues and these days served more often in clubs, carefully prepared here by Yossi Lévy (ex-Babel Babel in Nice). Want something more familiar? There are also plump pita bread sandwiches filled with tender fried eggplant, a soft-boiled marinated egg with a runny yolk, beetroot baked in a salt crust, red cabbage, onions and crunchy celery (cucumber when it’s in season), slow-roasted potatoes and fresh herbs, all topped with homemade sauces – tahini, zhoug (a sort of green harissa) or amba (a spicy mango vinaigrette). And what’s more, you can order a side of mini-falafels or freshly fried French fries! // Tina Meyer

FEELING THIRSTY? Fresh homemade mint lemonade with just the right amount of sweetness (€3), Israeli Goldstar or Maccabee lagers (€4 for 330 ml).
PRICE: Set menus €11 and €13.50, sabich €9, falafel €3.
