Free Food in Paris. No catch*
The title pretty much says it all. There are a few bars in Paris where you can get get free food after ordering a drink. And no, before you say it, the drinks are not wildly expensive. Quite the opposite. No, I don’t understand how this concept could be profitable either, but rather than questioning, I’ll just take that fork thanks.
Here’s a selection of addresses where you can find this Parisian phenomenon…
