Chez Aline

Catching up with friends and checking out new places is one of my favourite things to do in Paris (or any city). And that’s what I did for lunch today.

Anne Ditmeyer, another Paris based creative freelancer (check out her blog for some great Paris tips) and I headed to the recently opened Chez Aline.

Chez Aline is a fab little (almost the same size as my kitchen) lunch place where Delphine Zalpetti (ex Le Verre Volé) cooks up fresh simple dishes. The place used to be a horse butchers hence the old sign “chevaline” with a neon lit horse that still hangs outside. Bright yellow tiles welcome you on the inside.

Crunchy and slightly chewy fresh baguette with a crisp veal milanese (veal in breadcrumbs), onion pickles and salad. The best sandwich I’ve had a long time in Paris.

Homemade Tiramisu or thick vanilla chantilly cream with fresh strawberries for dessert.

My tip: Get there early if you want to grab one of the 4 bar seats!

Plat du jours: 9€ – Sandwiches: 7€ – Desserts: 5€50

Chez Aline 85 rue la roquette 75011
Open Mon – Friday 12 – 7pm

  1. I’m French and I’m pretty sure it’s Chevaline, isn’t it? I might be wrong but it used to be a common name for this kind of shops back in the days.

  2. Funny, I was there on Friday as well. Tried the goat cheese with tomato and caper sauce as well as the Paris Prince sandwich with parsley pesto.
