The DAILY SYRIEN, better than l’As du Falafel?


2 Grumdaily3Saying that Middle Eastern street food in Paris has always been weak is an understatement. I should use the past tense though, as the Daily Syrien has been a great addition to that food scene in Paris. It’s not that we don’t like l’As du falafel, the most famous falafel joint in Paris but it’s a bit overrated and there wasn’t any strong contender. Located in the very popular and now heavily gentrified Faubourg Saint-Denis, the Daily Syrien mostly offers traditional falafel and tabbouleh.

For less than €10 you’ll get an appetizer, a sandwich and a drink. Amazing considering usual prices for street food in Paris, isn’t it?


For this price you can still expect 5 stars service, and a clean and pleasant setting (expect tile floors and wood tables). The most important criteria in judging a tabbouleh are probably freshness and taste. Both were easily met. There was sliced persil, fresh mint and diced tomatoes. Fresh lemon juice made up for a great seasoning as well.

The sandwich was excellent as well. I’m in love with the falafel, and this one fares very well, with the right amount of toppings inside.
