Cheap chow eats in the 14th

Hi Chowhounds

Apologies if this has been covered but I have searched the board and cannot find much. I am staying in the 14th for a few weeks near Cite University and am looking for some cheap chow worthy eats. Any recommendations much appreciated.

      Thanks John this is exactly what I was looking for you are a wealth of information - assuming you are based in Paris let me know if I can ever return the favour with recommendations for London.

        I can second the recommendation for L'Entêtée. The young chef thre (a woman) is really talented. I went for lunch. Excellent value. Not sure what the hours are for August, though...

    2. Will you have use of a kitchen? If money is a concern and you have use of kitchen, you might consider doing a bit of shopping at a Monoprix. There, you can stock up on a variety of cheeses, breads, pate, frruits, prepared entrees, etc. At least you'll save quite a bit if you can do at least two of your main meals each day this way.

        Yes sadly L'Entetee (sorry no accents on this keyboard) is closed for August. I have been cooking as well but obviously also want to eat out. Thanks for the advice.
