Eat Crêpes

One of the finest street-foods on earth, crepes may be considered overrated by many, as they are well-known and prepared all around the world, but there is nothing better than having one in Paris. You can buy one at a stall when walking the streets of Paris, choose your filling and then enjoy it along the banks of the Seine. Salty or sweet, it’s absolutely delicious!
