Batignolles

The best doner kebab in Paris? Perhaps not, but if the lunchtime queue outside this tiny dive on the Rue Batignolles if anything to go by, Istanbul is a strong candidate at least.

The secret is the care that the two brothers who run it take over the preparation of the meat – no worrying unidentified matter in these kebabs. The beef is deboned and sliced anew each day, then marinated for several hours in a secret spice mix inherited from their grandfather, himself a restaurateur in Turkey. The rest of the preparation is standard, but the result is exceptional. For €5 you can get your hands on one of the French capital’s legendary sandwiches – and its reputation is no accident.
