  a typical lunch in Paris
by cochinjew

One of the greatest pleasures for me when I am in paris, is to be able to spend one hour or two having lunch with my companion who has a very responsible job at an international company. But we try to eat lunch together every day. First of all, like many things in France, food is subsidized, the VAT on food is less, especially when it is provided for employees, and the company further subsidizes the food by automatically being charged when you enter the place and show your ID.
Obviously I cannot tell you about this particular restaurant or where it is, but if you have friends who are working in companies, they would know where to take you

Favorite Dish: The price is ridiculously cheap compared to the price one pays for similar quality food in public restaurants.
I would say about 2/3 cheaper, a 30 euro meal outside will cost you 10 euros at this subsidized place.
a typical lunch might be:
bavette poelee
patisserie ( a nice piece of steak )
bleu de bresse
san pellegrino water
fresh lychees (litchis)

I look forward to my lunch, not only because of the time spent with my companion but also because of the quality of food.
Always in another room, one has a cup of Coffee..
