Cheap Eats: Heures Heureuses 2013

Hooray, Heures Heureuses is back for another year of budget gourmet bites! Here's how it works: stop by the Mairie de Paris at the Hôtel de Ville and snag a cute little "passport" that shows you all the different restos that are participating (with maps!). Then, at each place, have your passport "stamped" and get a delicious little bite for just 2€ apiece. Make a flânerie out of it and bounce from place to place, trying out cheapo bites at each stop and discovering restaurants you might not otherwise have known about.

For example, you could have a taste of California maki with salmon, then a piece of pepperoni pizza, then raspberry cheesecake in the 4e arrondissement, or a mini-burger, then a taste of (divine) Saint-Marcellin cheese on baguette, then foie gras à l'orange just south of Pigalle in the 9e arrondissement. Considering there are about 180 spots participating, the possibilities are just about endless for a diverse meal of bites for less than 10€.

It's a fun way to try out a bunch of new foods without breaking the bank, which happens to be this Paris Cheapskate's preferred way to pass the day.
