Au Pied de Cochon information
This venerable establishment, which once satisfied the appetites of both market porters and theatre-goers with its famous onion soup and pieds de cochon (grilled pig’s trotters), has become more uniformly upmarket and touristy since Les Halles was moved to the suburbs.
But it still opens round the clock seven days a week as it has since the end of WWII, and its pig’s trotters, tails, ears and snouts are definitely worth writing a postcard home about. Children’s menu €7.90.
