Le Bistrot Beaubourg is a good French bistro for enjoying an inexpensive lunch or dinner. The prices are quite reasonable but we should not expect a sophisticated dish by these prices.
This bistro is located in the central Paris, close to the Centre Pompidou. The district is rather dynamic. The bistro provides very authentic French food. It is simple but very delicious. Besides, the servers are very efficient in serving dishes and nice to the customers.
WHAT TO EAT
It is a good idea to choose your dish from the daily specials. The dishes are written on the black board or a small piece of paper inserted in the menu. The prices are totally different from the utterly high prices of the restaurants in the tourist spots.
On the day we visisted, we ordered one Osso Bucco Spaghetti and one Fish-Spinach Quiche.
Osso Bucco Spaghetti
It is spaghetti with stewed calf elbow. Actually it is a cuisine from Italy. Different from Asian style for spaghettis, the sauce is normally put on the top of the spaghetti and the meat is chopped into small pieces. Osso Bucco Spaghetti separates the sauce from the spaghettis and the beef is a big cut of meat. So, this can be suprising to Asian tourists. Therefore, we would like to recommend their beef, which was tender. We had thought it would be tougher from its appearance. You can order a glass of red wine for your red meat.
Based on my past experience, I ate quiche several times and personally I did not like it. However, this time I still gave a try and I liked this French dish. It was not too much baked and the fish matched well with the spinache. We recommend you to order a glass of white wine accompanying with dish.
The bistro is a very classic French bistro. We can choose to supper under the terrace or inside the restaurant. Each table is close to one and another. The wall is made of bricks. The toilet is in the basement and the environment is like a wine cellar.
O'BON PARIS' NOTE
Le Bistrot Beaubourg is a restaurant for simple French food and the taste is good. It is in the central city and next to the art museum. We recommend it for its low-priced food and hospitable services.
