Help...Quality budget meals in Paris for Student travellers.

My son and a couple of his university friends are back packing in Europe and head to Paris next. Any suggestions on where to get good meals on a limited budget?

  1. This thread has a lot of good recommendations:

    If your son will have access to a refrigerator (or even if he doesn't), the best way to eat cheaply is to get basic supplies at the grocery store or a market and put together a good picnic. You can make a great lunch out of just cheese and bread and charcuterie.
