Et pour moins cher?

Manger pas trop cher à Paris? Et complètement à l'écart du cercle gastronomique. Voici quelques une de mes adresses d'étudiant préférées, à moi perso:

Cosi, 54 rue de Seine, 01 46 33 35 36, has nothing to do with the American chain in terms of quality. Simple concept: fresh ingredient, freshly baked pizza-like bread (cooked throughout the day in the wood oven -- therefore always warm). Made on order sandwiches. Count 10€ per person, there's a nice room upstairs where you can seat (it would use some renovation works yet, maybe a fresh painting). And good wines. They also make salads.

Very simple but delicious Vietnamese restaurant (menu 8€): Thao Ly, 11, rue Berthollet, 01 43 36 72 92 -- Ideal for feeding hungry families. There are 8 tables in a tiny local, wife cooks and husband serves, paper table cloths. Students love it, of course, but it is tasty and healthy. Delicious Banh Cuon (steamed ravioli), Lacsa soup (here it is with coconut milk and shrimps), pork ribs.

Biggest pasta plates ever at Padova, 159 bd du Montparnasse (close to Port-Royal), 01 43 26 63 52. Also delicious, gigantic and thick pizza, made a with what is basically a bread dough. The Gorgonzola-Pomme, the Toscane (with raw Parma ham added after the cooking) are my favorites. Big specialty is the Cocktail de pates, that could reasonably feed four. also a nice beef rib, available in "small" (700gr) or "medium" size (1kg). Really not a dietetic or a gastronomic place, but teens often love it and I do. Count 20-30€ per person.

In Chinatown, metro Tolbiac or soon to be opened Olympiades, the Asia Palace has delicious dim sums and dumplings, and roast meat. 22 rue du Disque, 01 45 86 88 77. 20-30€.

Also in Chinatown, Pho 14 is a very popular place which I never saw closed, offers a huge bowl of soup with rice noodles for 6.50€. 129, avenue de Choisy. Pho can be chicken or beef, and they have a choice of three different starters (steamed ravioli, springrolls, rice noodles with a shrimp cake). Yummy.
