An exotic enchantress near Paris’ Opera Bastille, Le Cheval de Troie restaurant serves Turkish delights at irresistible prices. It specialises in skewered halal meat slow-grilled over a wood fire, hot and cold mezze, fragrant tagine and other traditional dishes that play heavily on a heady marriage of flavours. Mop up your main with warm sesame bread not long out of the oven. Le Cheval de Troie’s two atmospheric rooms are decked in a rich mix of Turkish art, handwoven rugs and homely bits and bobs. The warmth of the Le Cheval de Troie staff and service is another draw, alongside a curvaceous belly dancer performing to the friendly crowd on Saturday nights.
