Take a trip to Eastern Europe with the Petrossian dynasty’s latest darling, aka mantchouk in Armenian! In this boutique / takeaway shop / diner, you’ll find all of grandma Irène’s most beloved recipes. Perfect to pimp out your lunch break, chosen from the shiny window displays: pickled green cabbage with dill, generously garnished tzatziki, incredible white bean salad, beets and malossol pickles, chunky eggplant caviar, brilliant boreks and plump pirozhkis filled with gently spiced meat or spinach and sheep’s milk cheese, well-rolled dolmas, manti (mini dough balls stuffed with beef and topped with yogurt), salmon coulibiac and borscht… If you’re thirsty, grab something from the colorful drinks shelf: traditional vodka, local pomegranate juice, and a few Armenian wines. // Zoé Deray 

The hidden gem: The white bean and beetroot salad (€27/kg), which we’ve never seen anywhere else!
