One of the areas I’m quite fond of lately is the lower 11th, from Voltaire to Bastille. Rue Keller is filled with little gems, and its seems as though my list of places to go in this hood keeps getting longer and longer. I had my eye on CheZ Aline for quite some time as the story behind it sure was cute (Sandwich shop and epic lunch spot inside an old horsemeat butcher shop. They replaced the “V” of Chevaline to a Z to make it CheZ Aline).

A variety of delicious sandwiches made to order with quality products: Paris ham, Milan veal, tortilla and chorizo, pickled things, homemade terrines and pickles…. there’s something for everyone and it’s all under 10 euros. Great to grab on the go, or sur place if you get there before the crowd.

I love eating lunch out. That’s one of my favorite parts of the weekend, being able to have leisurely lunches out. On Mondays and Saturdays, Abri, a precious Japanese restaurant and sandwich shop at Poissonnière that Anne took me to, has a little lunch menu for 12 bucks. With the menu you get a bevvie of your choice and their house sandwich : toasted pain de mie with omelet goodness, cabbage, a pork patty and a delicious sauce all stacked at cut in half. Abri only serves lunch from 12-3pm on Mondays & on Saturdays, but if you can make it there within their short lunch hours it’s well worth it. Expect to wait at least a little bit because it is usually quite crowded.
