Chez Alain Miam Miam

  • share

Alain keeps the patient crowds satisfied with his facetious wit and hearty sandwiches at either his market stand inside the Marché des Enfants-Rouges or at this restaurant on Rue Charlot. All imaginable combos are within the realm of possibilities: the boss generously serves organic vegetables (salad, caramelized onions, mushrooms, tomatoes, avocado), AOP cheese (Cantal or Comté), meat (ham, cecina, pastrami, chicken) or smoked trout from Maison Barthouil, which he lovingly stacks between two slices of toasted bread. Some other “miam miam” options include the recipes he’s been perfecting for over 10 years now: socca that overflows on the plate; raw veggies pimped out with goat cheese and honey rolled up in a blini; buckwheat galettes that can’t exactly be described as light, and sweet crepes for dessert. // T.V.X.

FEELING THIRSTY? As for the drinks, there’s nothing too fancy: sodas (€2), organic Maddam lager (€5 for 330 ml) and a natural Beaujolais from the Maison Leynes (€6 for a 150 ml glass).

PRICE: Sandwiches in-house €11-14, to go €9,5-12,5, socca €4, crepes €3-5.50.
