A gorgeous little french market is the best place to visit for a local experience. Filled with the most amazing fresh produce you can find almost any vegetable for bargain prices. Also you can find some little treasures as there is also a little flea market filled with lots of bric a brac. Be sure to taste the Mara de Boi strawberries, they are incredible.

A gorgeous little Korean restaurant, it's set an intimate dimly lit setting which as well felt rather trendy. With soft electric tunes playing in the background, there's a huge cement sink set in the middle of the small room to wash your sticky hands post chicken. I ordered the pork bao buns which were incredibly flavoursome and filled with kim chi salad, so zesty and fresh. Followed by a trio of fried chicken, one being sweet chilli chicken (bloody spicy but kept going back for more), second being garlic and spring onions then the third being plain. This plate was a mere 18 euros. Would definitely recommend this place a lovely little romantic eat or somewhere for a girly catch up. Great cocktails too!
Dinner for two plus cocktails - Roughly 50 euros.

This place will come up on every single blog, website recommendations and guides for where to eat in Paris. Number one for E'clair lovers and all things sweet. Located in the heart of the Marais, it has a slightly futuristic feel, almost as if it was designed in Japan. I tried the praline and vanilla flavour and it was deliciously light and indulgent.
E'clair: 5,50 - 6,50 euros
