Ooey-gooey Gruyere, melt-in-your-mouth caramelized onions, perfect and comforting homemade beef broth.. if you’re in Paris looking for a delicious bowl of cheesy onion soup, head over to La Jacobine in the covered walkway of rue Saint-André des Art.
Stephanie and \nI discovered La Jacobine on our first trip to Paris together, and were keen to bring the guys when we returned.
While you can’t make reservations online, you can save your table by phone call – or by stopping in a couple of days beforehand like we did.
Sure, you could always turn up with fingers crossed but, with a packed restaurant and others with the same idea, you might end up waiting for quite some time.
Which reminds me. Try to sit facing away from the windows if at all possible. Seeing people lick the glass out of the corner of your eye can be a tad distracting.
Where do you order your favourite l’onion soup?
