American Comfort Food in Paris: Gumbo Yaya

by Erin Dahl

HiP Paris Blog checks out Gumbo Yaya

When the occasional homesickness hits, American comfort food is often my remedy of choice. And no one does soul food quite like pint-sized Gumbo Yaya.

Lionel leads the self-proclaimed Southern Kitchen and he learned how to cook from the best: his Atlanta-native aunts. 

The menu is succinct, but features all the favorites: fried chicken breaded to perfection, indulgent chicken and waffles, mac & cheese, cornbread, and more. The perfect cure to the occasional American-in-Paris blues!
