  ? l'enfer avec McDonalds.
by davequ

flunch appears to still be growing (100+ locations), though I did not see any this time 2003/04, but I wasn't really looking either.

Why cop out to McDonald's etc. when you're in a hurry for lunch in France?

Imagine a typical buffet / cafeteria / smorgasboard restaurant, serving (instead of roast beef, meatloaf & green beans):

duck, fried rabbit with herbs, or lots of other French concoctions ready to pick up and put on your tray.

This is Flunch.
They were in many different cities (in 2001 I ate at one during a train stop in Nice close to the station; they are also in Paris, Avignon, etc.) and appeared to be growing.

Don't get me wrong. This is just fast food & is certainly not even close to good cuisine, but if you are in a hurry yet still want some quick & affordable French food, check out flunch.

Beats the merde out of le big mac.

Favorite Dish: I've had duck and rabbit there: both were good (for fast food), with salad, and mousse for dessert.
One of the cool things about flunch is it is buffet style.
Like any cafeteria, there were many selections already prepared for you to look at closely before you pick your choice and put it on your tray.
