STRASBOURG ST DENIS
• Pass by le Passage Brady, a covered passage, center of the parisian "Little India" with restaurants, groceries, bazars...
• Stop in one of the many restaurants of the district - all kinds of food and atmosphere : French, Chinese, African, Japanese, Kurdistan, Indian, Italian, tapas, burgers, fancy, cosy, trendy, street food...
Time to stay : for a drink
Subway: SSD (line 4,8,9)
Location : 10ème arrondissement
• Have some drinks in one of the numerous bars of the street, somehow quite cheap, opened until 2. The most famous and emblematic ones are the Mauri7 and Chez Jeanette, but they are quicky full.
• Or go to the Cour des Petites Écuries, a charming pedestrian street with a lot of bars and restaurants.
Some Parisians would say it is not a district, it is just a street. It might be true, but what is sure is that you don't really visit SSD.
Life there is mostly local, and dual : during the day, you will probably meet some greengrocers or workers, but at the end of the day, around 6 o’clock, the street changes, work is done, happy hour is starting, the bars get filled, street food is cooking and everybody can finally meet in that messy and multicultural atmosphere.
Along Rue du Faubourg Saint Denis, local greengrocers stand alongside bazars, multicultural grocery shops and restaurants, cheap bars and street food.
