“Best in the universe!”

Remember my vote for best sandwich in Paris? I went back for another. But as I waited in line, I spied the sandwich master concoct something else. Something that looked irresistibly delicious. Something new called the Cornet Vegetarien.

Qu’est-ce que c’est? It starts with a savory crepe…


And then come the veggies (“tout bio!”): fresh greens, grated carrots and fennel, marinated onions, thinly sliced avocado…


And it just keeps going: olive oil, chives, sea salt, diced parsley, lemon juice, lime zest, chevre, and, à la fin, honey—”the French touch!”

Then it all gets wrapped up into a giant cone of healthy deliciousness that you can take to the nearby park for lunch.

It’s too good. Indeed, “The best in the universe!”

  1. My "best in the universe" is quite different: a little shop between the Odeon metro stop and the Jardins du Luxembourg...we had a simple fresh baguette split into a sandwich with incredible cheeses and toasted. It was a chilly day in early May. There is nothing at all like that in the US: fresh toasty warm bread, real cheese, sitting on a bench in the sunshine--

  5. Erin, you reminded me of a perfect, simple combination I had about a year ago: A fresh Eric Keyser baguette, good olive oil and sea salt and fresh mozzarella. Heaven.

    Eli, you're right: cheese and honey. So good, and so overlooked.

    Paris (Im)perfect & Andi, amazing and yummy, indeed.

    Haut Marais, feel free to use the photos!

  8. Minor correction/precision - the wrap uses a blini batter pancake. And man-oh-man is it good!

    @Anthony - Alain, the maestro, is in the Marche des enfants rouges at lunchtimes, Wednesdays through Sunday. This is near the Marie of the 3rd arrondisment, so not too far from Republique/Arts et Metiers.
