Pink Flamingo in Paris: A different kind of pizza.

Pink Flamingo in Paris: A different kind of pizza.


If you want a regular (as in classic flavor) pizza, you might want to try a different place. Aside from La Dante (tomato-mozzarella-basil) or La Cantona (8 cheeses), Pink Flamingo likes to offer flavors that will make you travel, which can be very useful if, for example, you can’t decide between pizza and Indian food (try La Gandhi: sag paneer, baba ganoush and mozzarella), or pizza and Spanish food (try L’Almodovar: pizza paëlla), or pizza and North African food (try La Macias: chicken cooked tajine style with cured lemon and olives)… Among the less unusual ones there’s also La Björk (smoked salmon, lumpfish roe and crème fraîche), La Basquiat (cured ham over gorgonzola and figs) or La Marcello (roquette with olive oil and balsamic vineger and parmesan.) As you might have noticed the pizzas are named after inspirational people who have made a difference in this world. While the pizzas are made in a traditional way—they use organic flour and all of the toppings are made with quality ingredients and fresh produce bought daily from the farmers market—Pink Flamingo likes to think of its product as something that stands out by its quality and novelty. And for dessert you can order some cheesecake.

Check out Pink Flamingo’s menu.
Deliveries are between 7pm and 11pm. They are made by foot or bike, hence the limited delivery area. Pink Flamingo cares more about the environment than getting the pizza to you super fast (that said, it’ll still get to you in a timely manner.) Last but not least, if you want to eat your pizza somewhere along the canal, you can order it at their restaurant in the 10th, leave with a Pink Flamingo balloon and when it’s ready they’ll come look for the balloon!
For food to go and to eat along the canal there’s also Le Cambodge restaurant.

Le Camboge: A Cambodian restaurant in Paris.

Le Camboge: A Cambodian restaurant in Paris.

You will know when you stand in line at the door of Le Cambodge restaurant in Paris that you are in for a treat. No matter what night of the week, people start lining up as early as half an hour before Le Cambodge opens its doors (the fact that the restaurant doesn’t take reservations might also have something to do with it.) If you want to dine at 8pm get there early, otherwise come for the second or third sitting. Le Cambodge restaurant serves good food in a friendly atmosphere: you will be given a piece of paper to write down your order and you can be as goofy as you want with it. They will actually post their favorite orders/scribbles on their website and put it up on their walls. The most frequently ordered dishes are the bun bo special (10,50 €), ban hoy (13 €) and spring rolls (8,50 €). Vegetarians will find enough dishes on the menu to satiate their hunger, and customers can fill up their stomachs without emptying their wallets. For those who want their food to go, they will be called when the food is ready. Time can vary between 10 to 60 minutes depending on how busy Le Cambodge restaurant is. Along with Pink Flamingo pizza, Le Cambodge is a good address to have if you are planning on eating along the canal Saint Martin.
