À la Banane Ivoirienne

AFRICAN £

(facebook.com/ALaBananeivoirienne; 10 rue de la Forge Royale)

For over two decades, this institution has dished up the best Ivorian food in Paris along with fabulous live music and dancing on Friday nights. West African specialities include stuffed crab, braised attieke (fermented cassava pulp), alloco (fried plaintain) and plenty of fiery meats and fish.

Chalet Savoyard CHEESE ££

(chalet-savoyard.fr; 58 rue de Charonne)

Fill up on Alpine specialities like tartiflette (delicious melted Reblochon cheese and bacon baked with potatoes), cheese fondue and raclette (another type of melted cheese served with potatoes and cold meats) at this Savoyard restaurant.

Chez Paul BISTRO ££

(chezpaul.com; 13 rue de Charonne)

This is Paris as your grandmother knew it: chequered red-and-white napkins, faded photographs on the walls, old red banquettes and traditional dishes such as pig trotters, andouillette (a feisty tripe sausage) and tete de veau et cervelle (calf head and brains). If offal isn't for you, alternatives include a steaming bowl of pot au feu (beef stew).
