It's true that the French don't eat on the run like Americans do, but I've noticed more and more stalls that offer crepes or panini to go.
Just down the street from us in rue Mouffetarde were two popular crepe-to-go stands.
When we arrived in Paris, after four hours on the train, we stopped and shared a panini mid-afternoon. We knew we needed to eat something before our 8 or 9 p.m. dinner.
It was delicious, in spite of the pained look on my face.
As our trip continued, we realized that most days we were too full to eat a three-course meal for lunch and dinner.
So on the last evening of our trip, our bellies still too full from our large lunch, we decided to share a crepe rather than to go out for another big dinner.
The crepe, or technically a galette since it's a savory crepe, had ground beef and mushrooms, plus cheese and lettuce.
Earl waited in line for it while I traipsed back to the hotel. And we shared our last meal in France, for that trip.
Have you ever eaten street food in France?
Of course, I prefer a lovely three-course meal, but sometimes, a smaller meal is just as fulfilling.
