When it comes to eating in Paris, David Lebovitz is generally a more reliable source than Anthony Bourdain, whose recommendations always seem to land me in a bit of a pickle. Lebovitz's guide to Paris led us to Rue de Rosiers, in the heart of the Marais, in search of authentic Jewish felafels. This little street is lined with open windows, where you can walk right up and order anything you want, all wrapped up in a pita pocket. In addition to the endless lines queued for felafel, crêpes are also a popular option on Rue de Rosiers.
Crêpes, those quintessential French snacks, aren't too dissimilar to pitas and burritos; you can wrap up anything you want inside these too. But to a little-bit homesick Californian, the great debate stands: which is better? The chic crêpe, or the humble burrito? (Sorry pita, you're just not in the running.)
Uh-oh. Don't let David hear me:
I think I'm kind of partial to burritos...
