Fine Dining in
Fast Food Restaurants
When traveling to France
one should be out of his mind to demise the gastronomic delicacies this
country is offering. In
general you can lunch (almost) as cheap in
a restaurant, Estaminet or Brasserie than in a hamburger
in any case, you will eat healthier and tastier.
fancy a slightly different burger, you can also look out for the
typical restaurants of the Buffalo Grill, which are
open all day, 7/7, until late at night.
These restaurants are all built in
the same "cowboy and Indian" style and all have the same menu,
which you can access on the Internet, where you will also find the addresses. The interiors of the Buffalo Grill restaurants is all
similar, with lots of dark burgundy (fake) leather and
pictures, ornaments and artifacts yhat will bring you in a Far West mood.
At Buffalo Grill everyone gets a
free salad, and the cheapest all-inclusive menu, where you have a
choice of three entrees and a dessert OR a drink, is
called the Pony Express
and costs only € 7.90. (£6.60 !)You can even get a glass of fine
wine for that humble sum!
Buffalo Grill lives to its name
with a couple of dishes with Bison Meat, and the kids eat for
only €4.90. (£4.00 !)
At Buffalo Grill one can eat cheap,
and it is a lot better and healthier than eating at a hamburger stand. The waiters even ask how you prefer
your hamburger is cooked, and if you're in a hurry, notify the
waiter while ordering, your order will be given priority!
Another chain of
restaurant where you can eat out for a
fiver per person is that of Flunch. A menu du jour
is only € 6.00 (yes, you read that correctly: SIX
EURO or FIVE QUID) and for that amount you get "the dish of the
day", with meat, vegetables and a drink. Also a lot healthier than the chip
The resto's Flunch are usually
located in a hypermarket of a supermarket chain. The hours are the same as the
associated supermarket, usually until 8PM, sometimes until 10PM.

If you fancy a (piece of) pizza, try your luck at PIZZA PAÏ
And for those you can not live without their trusty Big Mac, one can
always find the addresses on the internet. Both McDonald
(in french lingo "MacDo") and Quick
have a number of restaurants in Le Nord et Pas de Calais. and for those who prefer a fast chicken meal, there's now also a KFC
restaurant in Calais.
