Marche des Enfants Rouge – Paris

I had some of the best Moroccan food at the oldest covered marketplace in Paris. Established in the early 1600’s, Marche des Enfants Rouge was named for the orphaned children who were cared for nearby and clothed in red (the color of charity). Located at 39 Rue de Bretagne, step back in time and eat some awesome food!

You can still buy produce, meats, and flowers, but the real reason to come here is all the delicious looking food stalls and restaurants; especially the amazing Moroccan food at Traitun Marocain.

One thing to keep in mind when lunching at Marche des Enfants is seating is very limited. It’s like the Hunger Games trying to score a table. Luckily when eating at Traitun Marocain they have seating available just for their customers.

After standing in a long, but rapid moving line, we finally got to the front and ordered:

Couscous Poulet aux Graines.

Basically couscous with chicken. Except there is nothing basic about this spice palette. Savory with hints of cinnamon.

We also ordered Legumes Varies and du pain.

The same dish as the chicken one minus the chicken.

This bread is fluffy and so cheap. Under 2 euros.

I am a huge fan of Moroccan food. This was one of the best foodie experiences I have had. How can you beat great food in an establishment that has withstood the centuries? If you’re into ambience, it doesn’t get cooler than this!
